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

I think that Sherlock is defined not merely as "Holmes in the 21st century," but primarily as "Holmes as told by Steven Moffat (with Mark Gatiss)." It's very much a product of Moffat's distinct, quirky, frenetic style, as also seen in his Jekyll and Doctor Who. So I don't expect Elementary to be even remotely in the same vein as Sherlock. It will probably be far more sedate and in the vein of your usual CBS crime procedural with an eccentric-genius lead.
