Kevin’s catching up on Elementary and I am so proud of the Chinese gambling episode because Joan has very little to do with it.
It’s the white and black male characters that are heavily involved. The writers are purposely dodging stereotypes here and I thank them for it.
If Moffat had written this show, he’d have Joan speaking in Mandarin and being a walking talking Chinese encyclopedia because to racists, all diasporic peoples know everything about their mother country even if they’ve never been.
Don’t forget the “vague Asian music” playing in the background to set the mood…
