The Daily Teaser — 19-4-2016: The Simpsons

I’ve got to admit, I’ve got last night’s episode of Gotham on: and Bruce Wayne has tracked down Matches Malone, the man who killed his parents.

As I write … ?

Bruce is facing Matches, with a gun … 

And Matches … ?

Really isn’t going to be in the rest of the series!

Frankly … ?

Whilst I’ve not been doing the same sort of write ups of it I have for other series?

It really IS worth catching: especially with quality scenes like that!


But let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: scoring five out of five in the process.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s themed questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How To, License and video …
