One home. Three women. Three generations. Each with their own story. Each of them making the case for Why Women Kill. Proving itself once again to be “more” than just the home of Star Trek, CBS All Access‘ new dark comedy/drama series from Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives) stars Lucy Liu, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Kirby Howell-Baptiste […]
CBS’ Elementary ended its run this week, the last Sherlock standing in the current era of modern-day Sherlock Holmes television series. It was the longest running of the shows – and in many ways, as clever as the others. To put it all in perspective, the series ran for seven seasons, 154 episodes – more […]
After a very long wait, fans of Elementary will be happy to know that Sherlock Holmes and Joan Watson will be back on the case staring April 30th. CBS has announced the sixth season of the modernized adaptation of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle classic detective series will premiere this spring a month or so […]
CBS has ordered eight additional episodes of Elementary, the Sherlock Holmes series that stars Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu as the fabled detective and his constant companion. The fate of the series seems to be a bit all over the place this year. For the first time in its six-season span, the show was […]
Halloween is one of those holidays that usually finds itself yielding a new special or two, and this year won’t be any different as CBS has set the premiere date for and released the first official image from their new Michael Jackson-themed animated special Michael Jackson’s Halloween. The one-hour animated special is set to premiere […]
Back in June, Elementary star Lucy Liu was seen on the set of Marvel’s Luke Cage including posing for a photo with actor Mike Colter at the Harlem Coffee Co. This of course lead to lots of speculation that Liu would be appearing in an episode of the series second season. According to Buzzfeed, Liu […]
Loose lips, the saying goes, sink ships. But rather than sinking ships, when those loose lips belong to Elementary star Lucy Liu, and when they’re used not for spilling secrets but for sipping coffee, they can float rumors of Liu’s involvement in the second season of Marvel’s Luke Cage instead, setting media sleuths on the […]
Elementary star Lucy Lui has a new gig which is left fans of the show wondering if the CBS drama is getting canceled after five seasons. The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Liu has booked a multi episode arc on the Hulu comedy Difficult People. Liu will take on the role of Veronica, a morally […]
Priming you for RZA's directorial debut.
This trailer will play to a general comic book movie audience quite well, I think. There’s a series of characters with aliases, with special weapons or powers, and there’s a look into the origin of the titular man with the iron fists, The Blacksmith. These are tropes that mainstream comic-book-to-movie translations have been selling over […]
Wrong. Well, mainly wrong. Or... okay, no. You were right.
This looks furiously stylised and extraordinarily polished, and there’s some sort of A-grade B movie business every few seconds. Shame about some of the title cards. They put the F U in Kung Fu? Hmmm. The Man With the Iron Fists swill give RZA a great place to showcase his love for, and extensive knowledge […]
I couldn't care less if this new Sherlock Holmes is an accurate portrayal of Arthur Conan Doyle's character, I only want the show to work on its own terms.
Looking pretty good, I think.
Elementary is a modern day take on the Sherlock Holmes stories, set in New York and coming to US TV this Autumn. CBS have sent out this first official image of our lead characters – Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as disgraced doctor Joan Watson. Aidan Quinn is also in the […]
An interesting day for breaking TV news — a new Doctor Who Companion announced, and our first glimpse of Lucy Liu in the new twist on Sherlock Holmes called Elementary. Liu finished a strong but brief run on Southland this week, during which she definitely developed the chops for crime fighting tv. I’ll be watching […]
Filming on Elementary, the Holmes-in-New York pilot that will star Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson, is underway now. The production has been on location around the city in the last couple of days, giving paparazzi their chance to capture Miller and Liu in costume. I give it ten […]
The thrust of it is simple: Watson masked her gender when recounting her adventures with the World's Only Consulting Detective.
Seems that Liu is playing a doctor after all, and a medical one at that. And Miller won't be having to do an American accent.
In an unexpected deviation from the original Conan Doyle stories, not to mention the BBC show Sherlock that we've been (unfairly?) comparing it to at every turn, it just so happens that the Holmes-in-New York series Elementary is going to have a female Watson.
