We're copying BBC again...

Apparently we're trying to copy the success of Benedict Cumberbatch in the BBC reimagining of Sherlock Holmes where Holmes is a modern-era person rather than a Victorian England person. I'm not sure if it'll work... but I'm going to watch it.

Any Sherlock Holmes thing, I'm there... *sheepish grin*

I'll watch it. I dont think it'll be as good as the bbc tho.

HOWEVER!

They've cast Lucy Lui as Watson. That's gonna be interesting

Yeah, that's what I thought; someone finally decided to see if they could work in a female Watson. I don't count the made for TV movies where there was a female sidekick; from what I recall of that movie she was kinda lame. Lucy Liu should be a fairly strong presence that should bring an interesting dynamic to the partnership.

*nods* I'm cynical enough to think that if this thing lasts more then a few episodes, eventually, they'll go the romance route. Its almost a given, I think. At the same time, I don't think that Lucy Liu would do a show that she thought would only last a little while, so maybe this will have staying power. I mean, its not like its on say, Fox, right? :)
