LUCY LIU TO PLAY WATSON IN SHERLOCK HOLMES PILOT. YES, LUCY LIU.

Detect anything you like, Holmes.

You’ve probably already experienced that familiar rage that comes when a British show or movie is remade into an American version. You also know that CBS is remaking the amazing British series, Sherlock.

In a bit of twist, they’ve just cast Lucy Liu to play the role of John Watson, or Joan Watson in this case. Liu’s character is a former surgeon who lost her license due to the death of a patient via some kind of ninja accident I assume. Holmes will be an ex-consultant to Scotland Yard whose addiction dramas led him to a rehab centre in New York city.

I really don’t know what I think about this. I’m angry that Holmes is being remade in the first place. I worry that changing Watson from a man to a woman is simple sensationalism designed to grab an audience. I really worry that all it’s going to add is a bunch of sexual tensions between the two main characters. I definitely do not want that. Next they’ll giving Holmes feelings and emotions and we may as well just give up.

To be confirmed, Sherlock Holmes to be played by Queen Latifa.

    There was the perfect amount of examination of the holmes-Watson relationship in Sherlock season 2, in a sexual and emotional sense. Perfect.
