A Note To CBS On Casting Lucy Liu As Watson In Their New Sherlock Holmes Show

I am typically not one to fall into the age old Internet trope of complaining about shows and movies that don’t yet exist. But as there is already an amazing Sherlock Holmes TV show being made, CBS’s forthcoming “Elementary” would be redundant even if the early news about the show seemed good. It doesn’t. UPDATED NOTE: I have no objection whatsoever to Watson being played by a woman or a person of color. I simply have a problem with the fact that while an amazing modern retelling of the Holmes story (that’s true in spirit to its source material) is being done in England, America is getting a heavily adapted and seemingly “Hollywoodized” version of the tale. All too often this leads to a dumbed down product. Why crowd another development season with a property that’s already being done well at this very moment? I should have been clearer, and I sincerely apologize to anyone I may have offended.
