B99 is quickly becoming the best show on TV to tackle holidays. Christmas episode right after the Thanksgiving ep!? Are you trying to make me obsessed with you, because it’s working.
Big ups to Brooklyn Nine-Nine for actually having a new episode the week of Thanksgiving!
An age old battle was waged on Brooklyn Nine-Nine last night: who has jurisdiction, the Police of the Fire Department? I think we can all agree that it’s pretty difficult to decide who to side for when the cops are led by Andy Samberg and the firefighters are led by Patton Oswalt. But lucky for me Patton’s performance in “Young Adult” launched him out of the comedy dept. and straight into the serious loser creep department, so obvi, I’m siding with Samberg!
Hands down one of the best episodes of Brooklyn 99 this season, dare I say ever (yes, because it's still the first season). There's nothing better than Jack and Amy teaming up under the auspices of actually competing for something. Go team! But before we get grading...
How on Earth can you have a cop-medy show do an episode called “48 Hours” and not make one reference to the seminal 1982 cop flick 48 Hrs starting Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte!? For shame, Brooklyn Nine-Nine!
Team player Jake is more fun than “I’m #1” Jake, and M.E. Time, obviously, was all about Jake which makes it a less fun show for ME. #SeeWhatIDidThere
We’re only on the third episode of the entire series and this motley group of cops is being pushed out of their comfort zones; Jake is in a case solving slump and gets benched; Amy tries to impress the Captain but can’t get through to teens; Terry can’t put together a princess castle for his girls. It’s nice to see that these characters aren’t just silly but have real heart underneath all their one-liners. Plus, they talked about their favorite cop movies which is just fun for the whole family.
Tuesday night on Fox could be the new Thursday night on NBC (circa 1998). With a lineup of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, and The Mindy Project (full disclosure I haven’t watched Dads and I don’t trust it), Fox is cornering the market on quirky comedy and I like it. Who knew a company with such a conservative News channel could be the home of such different wacky comedies? Long live this version of Fox!
When I first heard about Brooklyn Nine-Nine, I thought, “Jackpot." Andy Samberg plus the writer and creators of Parks and Rec!? Is this a dream? The only thing standing in Brooklyn Nine-Nine's way is combing cop with comedy, can murder and rape be funny? It’s an age old debate but if anyone can answer it, Andy Samberg can, he did give us Natalie Portman’s epic hardcore rap digital short. Fingers crossed!
Well, kids, we are officially twenty epsiodes into "The New Normal" and we're about due for our gaggle of gays and gals to take on a super controversial topic: The Boy Scouts. Does anyone else feel like Ryan Murphy and Madonna planned this? This ep was a bit all over the place. Bryan and David's battle of the Boy Scouts made feel like I was trapped in the end of "Chinatown" getting slapped around with, "I love the Boy Scouts," no, "I hate the Boy Scouts," no, "I love them."
