Re: Lucy Liu cast as Watson in CBS' Sherlock Holmes show

Actually I think I'd be more willing to give it a chance if they did go totally overboard and set it in the future, or use an all female, or african american cast. At least that would be an interesting variation.

As it is, despite what anyone says, this whole production smells to me of some tv exec who heard that there was a modern day Holmes series in England thats well regarded, and that their studio wanted a piece of that action.

And with that, I think I've belabored my point enough. I'll just step back and quietly follow the thread from hereon in.
