Well, it was natural the show’s momentum would eventually have to ease off. You can’t be all acceleration all the time, especially in your first season.

Fortunately, even as a slow down episode, this does pretty well with at least keeping everything and everyone interesting.

Cautious side of optimism fading…fading…

Okay, so it’s not gone yet, but all the same, I get the sense Gotham has finally found its voice. It still seems to be deciding what to do with some of the stories it set up and has left hanging, but by and large, it’s lost a lot of the clumsier, dead fumbling of the earlier episodes and feels more focused now. Even the overt nods to future Batman characters are blending in better.

Okay, I think we might finally be getting out of the first season slump.

I could be wrong- I was let down after Penguin’s Umbrella in the first half. At the same time, the last two weeks of this have actually been strong material for Gotham. If we can keep this up, I think this show may make it after all.

It’s been three weeks since Gotham came back from its mid-season hiatus. The first episode was honestly lackluster, and having Fox skip a week didn’t help.

This sounds like a lot of grumbling, but honestly, it just makes me glad this episode was a welcome step back in the right direction.

And we’re back.

I’d say this was a nice, relaxing time off, but it’s been busy. So picking right back up is actually just a welcome return to routine.

I have to give Gotham some points off the bat for this week’s episode. For the time being, it looks like they’re planning to stick to the changes of the mid-season finale. This isn’t to say this is a full-blown triumphant return, but I’m happy they’re not just trying to reset the board.

With 2015 just around I corner, I decided to once again present my list of my top 10 favorite comic series of 2014. There have been some amazing comics released over the past year, and it was definitely difficult to develop this list. To make things a little easier on myself, I’ve decided to only include series that are still ongoing as of the end of 2014; sorry mini-series (like Armor Hunters) and ongoing series that ended (like Superior Foes of Spider-Man and Archer & Armstrong), y’all were amazing but aren’t on this list.

So what did I choose? Check it out after the jump!
