Interesting info on Wikipedia where this new show is discussed with regards to Sherlock. As I'm a fan of Sherlock my thought was that this was going to be a cheap U.S. ripoff. It turns out CBS has done two previous TV movies where Sherlock Holmes was in the modern world, in 1987 and 1993, so it's not like they didn't try it before. One even had a Jane Watson. Both of those involved cryonics though.
I was predisposed then to not like this, from the potential ripoff of the BBC series, the scary history CBS had with modern Holmes stories as well as the poor quality of the leak. In it's favor was that I like Holmes and I like Lucy Liu.
After watching, I think I'll be watching the show when it airs, it looks like it's got potential.
