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

Trust me, Americans know only two types of TV: American TV and Downton Abbey.
American viewers, maybe. TV Execs are a different deal, obviously, as 'let's look at succesful TV shows in other markets and make a US version' isn't exactly uncommon - The Killing, Homeland and In Treatment are three that come to mind off the top of my head.

Really? Sherlock is a brand? We're talking about a series that has six episodes, and will have three more eighteen months from now. Some brand.
British TV. Six episodes is par for the course. Moffat is obviously pretty well regarded in British TV (ever since Coupling, I think). Never liked Coupling that much - like most British sitcoms, I just feel kind of spent on it by the time I hit the second season - so never saw anything else he did.
