Do you feel guilty when you start rereading a book you’ve read a hundred times when you have so many unread books on your nightstand? That’s weird, right? It’s all reading and it’s all better than doom-scrolling Twitter! Anyway I just started Priory of the Orange Tree for the one billionth time during my lunch break and cannot wait for the day I announce in Pop Culture Fix that it’s being adapted for TV.
+ The teaser for Queen Latifah’s Equalizer is finally here and she kicks just as much ass as I hoped she would! It premieres on CBS after the Super Bowl.

+ Hey speaking of killer profiles: Javicia Leslie left government for Hollywood — now she’s the first Black Batwoman, by Tracy Brown for the Los Angeles Times.
+ But wait there’s more! Mallika Rao profiles Lilly Singh’ for The New York Times.
Yep, that’s three major publication profiles of women of color written by women of color!
+ For the return of Captain Jack Harkness to Doctor Who: Torchwood is essential queer television masquerading as science fiction.
+ Peacock is dropping all ten episodes of its Punky Brewster reboot in February. (I can’t be the only one who sees Soleil Moon Frye and thinks of her character that couldn’t stop punching Joey on Friends every single time.)
