We already spoke to Holmes. You didn't think we'd forget Watson , did you? Join us today at 1:30 p.m. PDT as "Elementary" star Lucy Liu talks about her role on the hit CBS television series with Times staff writer Glenn Whipp. We'll look at how the role of Watson changed over the course of the season and, yes, we're sure the topic of an eventual Holmes-Watson romance will come up at some point, though we may well let you do the asking on that one. But that's not the only question you can pose.

SUCCESS on the small screen doesn't necessarily translate to the big screen. But that hasn't been the case for Lucy Liu. The actress, 37, first came to fame in 1998 as the fiery, funny and brilliant lawyer Ling Woo on the Emmy Award-winning Fox series "Ally McBeal." "She was colorful and wonderful," Liu says of Ling. "When you do television, it goes into everyone's living room and they feel like they can watch you every week."

Imagine "The Bourne Identity" but starring Cedric the Entertainer. The gag in "Code Name: The Cleaner" is that hapless Jake (the aforementioned Cedric the Entertainer) wakes up in a hotel room next to a dead FBI agent and a briefcase full of cash, but with amnesia. He must figure out what happened, where a highly sought-after computer chip is, and if he's a secret agent, a janitor or both. And he must do it before he runs out of one-liners and absurd predicaments.

In about a month, moviedom will see one of the stranger hybrids you can imagine: the only known cinema offering in history - and certainly the only martial-arts flick - ever to be directed by a rap-music pioneer, written and produced by a horror impresario and star the actor Russell Crowe. Did we mention it's a martial-arts flick? The film, which Universal Pictures will bring out Nov. 2, is “The Man With the Iron Fists,” and it tells a story of a Chinese feudal blacksmith who must defend his village from encroaching barbarians.

In Ridley Scott's "G.I. Jane," Demi Moore's character, in training for the Navy SEALs as the first woman recruit, asks a medic why the guys join. Explains the medic: "To blow [stuff] up." It would be hard to find a more perfect expression of the primitive pleasure involved with watching movies such as the new action movie "Ballistic: Ecks Vs. Sever" than that.

How many Sherlocks can dance on the head of a pin? At least one more, as it turns out. On paper, Thursday's launch of "Elementary," CBS' update of the world's first and most famous consulting detective, seems absurd. Robert Downey Jr. has given Holmes an ironic, rakish twist and action-figure potential on the big screen, while Benedict Cumberbatch dials him down to icy and vulnerable brilliance on the BBC's "Sherlock. " But David Shore's "House," which started the whole Holmesian renaissance, is notable in its absence this fall, leaving space for a straightforward police procedural accessorized with characters that evoke familiarity while projecting a thoroughly modern, and American look.

NEW YORK - Sherlock Holmes has really been through the wringer lately. In two feature films, Guy Ritchie turned the pipe-smoking detective into a 19th century British butt-kicker who's as likely to corner criminals with his fists as with his brain. An increasingly popular BBC show restores some of the meditative qualities of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original but brings Holmes to modern-day London. Now a new broadcast series, "Elementary," offers perhaps the most fanciful interpretation: Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller)
