This Just In: Lucy Liu is Watson, Queen Latifah to play Moriarty

Who doesn't think "Crippled Doctor" when they see Lucy Liu?

Ok, so only half of that is true, but while they’re at it, CBS might aswell go all out on the ridiculous factor.

If you haven’t heard, Liu will play Jane Watson in the US “not a ripoff we swear” take on Sherlock Holmes (crappily-titled Elementary) that, in a fresh twist, is set in modern times.

Jonny Lee Miller will play Sherlock, which is probably the only interesting thing about this.

  1. Aw, c’mon! Let’s be open-minded. We’ve seen other stories twisted and turned inside out. I for one am willing to give it a try – no matter how strange it sounds.

    • Ya I will give it a chance, but right now the whole thing just reeks of desperation and trying too hard to be different. And even if it is good, it seems unlikely it’ll be as good as BBC’s Sherlock.
