Here’s an image from one of our favourite episodes of Star Trek: TNG. It’s called Elementary, dear Data. You can see that while on a Holodeck adventure with his buddy, Geordi, Data engages in a little roleplay as Sherlock Holmes.
Calm down! I can’t hear you over the uproar about this not being canon and how OUTRAGEOUS it is that the world’s only and greatest consulting detective would be played by an Artificially Intelligent MACHINE.
So can everybody please STFU about Lucy Lui playing Watson in Elementary and how it’s WRONG? Because obviously, it’s not WRONG if an ANDROID from the FUTURE can play Sherlock, but oh my, no! Not a LADY playing Watson!
Look, Elementary is just a dumb show on CBS that probably won’t be very good, but we’ll be watching it, because it’s Lucy Lui and she’s awesome and will probably be the best thing about the whole endeavor.
