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

Not a patch on the Uk show, but on it's own, even if this was a non-sherlock holmes show this was pretty enjoyable.

Sherlock is a little bit too apologetic. Greg House and Cumberbatch do the Holmes personality more justice in their portrayal. I liked Lucy Liu's Watson and that her Watson is able to wound Holmes more easily than the other Watsons have.
I think the fun part was the mystery behind the murder. This could be a typical detective series but it's less bland than others. I agree with what Locutus said. If they can maintain this type of story telling i'm happy to keep watching.

Also doesn't step on the toes of BBC's Sherlock. Good good.
