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

Finally watched it, and thought it was actually pretty decent for a CBS procedural. The writing seemed fairly intelligent, and the characters were well-written...

Unfortunately, with the incredibly witty and original BBC version out there, it just can't help but feel a bit generic in comparison.

The other problem is I actually found Lucy's Watson to be FAR more interesting and compelling than Miller's Holmes. Her character seems to have a real depth to her, while Miller basically just acts a bit nervous and edgy. It's a decent performance, but frankly I thought RDJ did the same thing a lot better.
