Yesterday Nov 13th Thursday, the 3rd Episode of the 3rd Season of CBS-TV's "Elementary" aired. The episode was titled: "Just a Regular Irregular."
Elementary is an updated version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous creation, Sherlock Holmes. It is set in modern day New York City. Jonny Lee Miller is fabulous as Sherlock and Lucy Liu plays Dr. Joan Watson, an updated version of Dr. John Watson.
Football's New York Giants Phil Simms appears as himself. Sherlock is consulting him on an old circus case involving knifethrowing. Holmes to Watson said of Simms, "Phillip here is arguably the greatest knifethrower in the world." Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson thinks Jonny Lee Miller's Holmes is joking. Holmes asked "Phillip" to demonstrate.
Did Phil Simms really throw those knives? Is he really the World's Greatest Knifethrower? You decide :)
Enjoy this set of 8 GIFs!
