Why is it when someone criticizes Lucy’s acting, some of her fans blame the writers? A good actress should be able to rise above clunky writing and still shine. (Personally I think she’s a good actress. Just wondering why I always see those comments.)
I hope when Sherlock comes back from MI6 he hasn’t relapsed. (Although Jonny Lee Miller would ace those addiction scenes.)
Lucy Liu won a Critics Choice Award and was nominated for an Emmy and a SAG Award. Strangely, JLM is the only one anyone ever says deserves recognition for Elementary. Yet it must be her fault. Can’t possibly have anything to do with the material she’s given by the writers.
I feel as though if the writers invested as much time and creative energy into Joan’s characterisation and and story arcs as they did into Sherlock’s, the show would be infinitely more interesting than it already is and address complaints that Joan is a boring character who is hard to read.
I’d love to watch/read some Sherlock/Moriarty phone sex. (Natalie Dormer’s voice is so hot, it makes me want to throw away my panties, and JLM’s accent is to die for.)
JLM sometimes goes too far and you can feel him overacting. Natalie Dormer’s American accent wasn’t great, and, I’m sorry, also has scenery-chewing issues. Lucy Liu’s line delivery is a little clunky every so often, and I don’t think she puts quite as much thought into her character motivations as Jonny does. None of these actors are perfect or objectively head and shoulders above each other. Yet Lucy is the one who doesn’t deserve stuff to do. Uh, bigger isn’t always better, okay.
I am still astounded and sad that Jonny Lee Miller was snubbed by the Emmy voters again. He deserves every single f——-g award out there.
Why is Joan moving out Sherlock’s “fault”? She chose to leave before he decided to go to MI6. he tried to offer her a shoulder and she shut him down SEVERAL times. I’m so SICK of the “poor Joan” crap.
The only reasons a submission wouldn’t be published was if it was in direct response to another confession and not a separate one of itself, if it was explicitly misogynist, racist or otherwise offensive, if I could not make sense of it (grammatically speaking), or if it didn’t get through in the first place. Apart from this, I post everything that comes through. More recent confessions are most likely still in the queue, which can take weeks to empty out.
"Probably because they aren’t about worshipping Lucy"? Is this a Lucy Liu fan blog? Watch your tone. Sure, maybe as a critical viewer and a WOC and someone aware of what the creators actually set out to do with the show in the beginning, I would love to see Joan/Lucy get her dues. But that’s something I expect of the writers - I am not here to police fan opinions. That would be missing the point of this blog entirely. Wouldn’t it? I only ask that people be respectful in the discourse on this blog. My personal views are not for this blog and I would never neglect to post something just because I disagreed with it. Not all of us are so petty, anon.
I feel like the rush of confessions as of late about Lucy/Joan are just very thinly veiled racism.
Elementary wouldn’t work with any other actors in the lead because Johnny and Lucy have serious chemistry and play off each other perfectly. I can’t wait to see how they play Sherlock and Joan repairing their relationship.
