at_sign: The hero from the Quest for Glory series of computer games. (Default)
Just read a piece on the new Sherlock Holmes-inspired show Elementary that has made me really excited about it. I'd been cautiously optimistic because Lucy Liu as Watson seemed like a good idea, but I was afraid they were doing it so they could do Holmes/Watson without having it be Teh Ghey and frankly I really really really hate the whole "a man and a woman can't 'just' be friends" trope. ("Just" friends is a kind of wrongheaded idea to begin with.) Turns out the show-making types in this case agree with me, which greatly increases the potential that I will love this show to pieces. If I can watch it, anyway*.

(Thanks Racebending.)

*Yes, I know there's always dubiously-legal means, but I'd really like to show up in the numbers for "x people liked this show and want more like it" when the show-funding types crunch those numbers.
