Television Tuesday :: Brooklyn Nine-Nine is the best show on TV fight me

By drift partner.

Primetime sitcoms aren’t generally where one might look to find subverted tropes, diverse casts, and genuinely funny jokes that don’t rely on a laugh track. 902 more words

TV Review: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 3.14, "Karen Peralta"

“There are so many stray observations worth making about Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s latest installment that figuring out where to start is like ice-skating uphill. Stephanie Beatriz deserves to be cast in an action movie so she can kick asses full time; only Joe Lo Truglio can over-enunciate “phở” with devastating comic effect; we don’t actually know Hitchcock and Scully as people, and that’s mostly our own fault; Holt is forever the greatest; Amy’s propensity for nerdiness is only outmatched by her willingness to take the uncomfortable social bullets for people she cares about. 20 more words

TV Review: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 3.13 ,"The Cruise"

“Talking about “The Cruise” without talking about Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s fondness for referential and self-contained franchisement is impossible. First, we had “Halloween III,” where Santiago brought the series-long All Hallow’s Eve prank war fought by Holt and Jake to a decisive end; then we had “Yippie Kayak,” where Boyle became subsumed into Jake’s Die Hard fantasy, and took on the role of John McClane just shy of a year after “Windbreaker City.” Now “The Cruise” brings back the Pontiac Bandit himself in a plot that riffs so hard on Speed 2 that the script can’t help but name-drop that ill-fated film into its dialogue. 16 more words

TV Review: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 3.10, "Yippie Kayak"

“What gift should you buy for the Diehard-obsessed NYPD detective who has everything? How about this: don’t buy him a gift at all, just let him wander into a real-life Diehard situation so that he can live out his John McClane fantasy. 40 more words

TV Review: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 3.09, "The Swedes"

“Everything’s been coming up Rosa lately, hasn’t it? It’s been a few episodes since she broke up with Marcus and subsequently broke down with Holt, and only a couple since Terry taught her a valuable lesson in compassion and forgiveness, despite a cavalcade of oopsies and screw-ups; after the season’s decidedly Rosa-light first half, she’s slowly regaining higher ground among the ensemble. 59 more words
