Elementary, my dear CBS

Check out the first photos of the much-gossiped-about upcoming CBS show, Elementary, starring Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes in New York City. The  juicy part of the debate surrounds Lucy Liu as Dr. Watson. You’d imagine that as an author of a pastiche claiming that Holmes was really a woman, I wouldn’t be averse to a female Watson on TV, but I don’t have a good feeling about this show. I am reserving judgment until I actually watch it, but I am a big fan of the BBC Sherlock, and it’s hard to imagine it surpassing, or even living up to, those standards. The CBS show imitates Sherlock‘s contemporary setting–but this time in the USA instead of England. We’ll have to just watch and see if Sherlock as portrayed by the evil Jordan Chase from Dexter and Watson as portrayed by a Charlie’s Angel will be captivate as many fans as the British version. I’m not holding my breath!
