On this day in 1968, the world was gifted with Lucy Liu. And since then, it's been one firecracker role after another.

Let’s start with Charlie’s Angels (2000), because while not technically science fiction, there's some badass spy stuff going down.

 

And then, of course, Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003) and Vol. 2 (2004).

 

And the voice of Viper in the Kung Fu Panda movies (2008-2016).

 

She continues to solve a ton of mysteries as Dr. Joan Watson on CBS's Elementary. Look, she's just a badass, and we couldn't be happier to have her in the world.

It was also on this day in 1950 that Isaac Asimov’s I, Robot was first published as a novel. It had appeared in pieces in magazines before that, but as a novel, that was today. It would later be made into a Will Smith movie.

 

Tomorrow: Charmed, Wizards of Waverly Place, and, somehow, Children of Men.
