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!

We’re at the mid-season finale already? Man, it feels like this one’s flown by.

While this isn’t a great spot to leave off on, it’s an improvement over the last two weeks, so I’ll take it.

Well, I can’t really blame them for making an effort now, can I?

After having called out Bruce Wayne as being one of the weaker points of Gotham on a week-to-week basis, the showrunners finally decided to make him a focal point for this episode. It’s a game effort, but unfortunately, it can only do so much to save a “not bad but fairly- unremarkable” episode.

After last week’s big story blowout, it’s back to the grind this week. However, the show has taken the changes to the setup from the prior story and it looks like it’s trying to use them well. This week is definitely a step back from the prior ratcheting up, but honestly, it’s not a bad one to have.

I do have to say this may take the prize for the show’s strangest cold opening so far: two office workers in ski masks fighting each other to the death in an abandoned office building. Yes, there’s a logic behind it (sort of) and it serves as the basis for this week’s case.

This show actually delivered on a cliffhanger from the week before!

And thank God they did, too. With Cobblepot finally revealing himself, several stories that have been in varying degrees of spinning their wheels got much needed kicks to the backside this week. I’m not going to declare the show perfect now, but it’s taking some big strides in a good direction this week.
