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

Saw the extended clip from Elementary, and yup, typical CBS procedural. Nothing Holmes-like about it, frankly, at least not in terms of distinguishing it from your typical buddy-cop detective show.

At least Rizzoli and Isles have a repartee between them that is unique. And the British Sherlock established the Holmes / Watson dynamic perfectly. This looks bland and quite unworthy of the Sherlock Holmes mystique.

I suppose it'll depend on the writing, but I'm not excited about this show in the least. I would've trusted AMC to make a good run at it, maybe FOX, but not CBS.
