At the Mary Sue, I found this interesting: Netflix’s Most-Binged Shows of the Year
At The Atlantic: Hollywood Still Doesn’t Know What to Make of Childless Women.
This is really interesting, at Vulture: The Hardest Effect I Ever Pulled Off: 35 filmmakers, cinematographers, and effects artists on making the impossible happen.
And, finally, we’ve got our first look at the Downton Abbey movie:
The ONLY thing we learn from this is that Downton Abbey the building has not fallen down, but I’m still excited. (I was reminded in the comments that we’ve also seen pics from them filming, which might be your jam if you missed them the first time.)
