About Joan Watson of “Elementary”


The new CBS interpretation of Sherlock Holmes called “Elementary” is going to be a good show. It requires an open mind though because instead of “John Watson” its “Joan Watson”. We live in the 21st century and ya see these stories were written when there was a male dominated society. Men seemed to run the world and it was the culture of the time. Martin Freeman is a great actor and does a great job on “Sherlock” however Lucy Liu who is a very good actress by the way will give a great preformance in her role as Joan. Women are half the population now and run corporations and the like so why are we holding on to such a rigid adherence to the traditional portrayal. Give this show a chance. Jonny Lee Miller will make his mark in the history of this very old character.
