    Brooklyn Nine-Nine



    This show looks like it would be awful, but it's actually really funny. Anyone else give it a chance?

    I have. The wife hates it, but there are some good moments. I just think there is something missing what I don't know. It just feels too Office to me. Crews and Baugher are great though where I think Samberg is good, not great, but good. The tough cop chick is good too. Everyone else can be shown the door.

    I wasn't expecting this to be any good, and I didn't think I'd like it (especially as I don't care for Samberg in general), but I've been very pleasantly surprised by the first couple of episodes. I'd say it's the best new comedy of the season.

    Samberg is one of those people like Will Arnett who is just naturally funny, everything he says and does makes me.laugh. Chelsea Peretti's character is tedious though.

    I didn't think this show would be good, but I am pleasantly surprised. I hope Samberg doesn't get dull, though. But I will continue watching since this is a show from the guys who made Parks and Rec.

    This show looked really stupid in all of the promos up to it's debut. But I've been pleasantly surprised so far. Imo however Samburg and Terry Crews are the only funny cast members, so I'm not sure how much longevity this will have.

    Well, if you look at the first season of Parks and Rec, it was pretty bad. Then they found their voice and produced one of the funniest shows on currently. You usually can't judge a show until it gets past the first few episodes. They are still trying to establish themselves. I'm sure it will get better as time progresses.

    Awesome show! Samberg is killer and when I saw Crews I was sold. I hope this works out for both of them.

    This has been good from the beginning, but I feel like it's been drifting into "great" territory lately.

    If you mean Rosa ...then yes, she is amazingly hot. Great show so far. Hopefully it will be as good if not better as Parks and Recs was for the last five years.

    I'm a big fan of this show but I doubt it'll ever get to Parks level. The cast just isn't as strong either at the top or the bit characters or in the middle. IMO

    i thought the first episode was meh. i remember watching it and not exactly caring to carry on, for whatever reason. might go back and rewatch it now that it's become my favorite show on TV.

    at the moment, i'm liking it more than parks and rec. might just be because it's way more fresh in my mind, but i'm liking boyle, sarge, jake and captain holt way more than from the get-go than i did ann, leslie, mark, tom and ron.

    P&R had a few cast changes (Ben, Chris, increased presence of Andy) after the first couple of seasons, so I'm pretty sure the same thing will happen here.

    Finished S1 with perfect timing for S2 it seems. Cracking show.

    In a round about way this is a new Parks and Rec for me. Good strong cast and funny. Terry Crews is honestly my highlight week in and week out.

    beyond any additions or subtractions, they've already started to 'expand' things, in a sense. i was a big fan of captain holt last season, the deadpan serious face is great, but through the first couple episodes of this season so far they've given him so much more to work with as far as the 'limits' of the character.

    New season has picked up where it left off brilliantly. The Holt scenario was great, and the latest episode had Anders in it from Workaholics.

    Such easy watching.

    Yeah. Right now it's the only sitcom I watch because I know it's going to be quality.

    I'll probably just wait for season 3 to appear on Netflix, and then I'll just binge watch the shit out of it.

    Watching it every week on E4 for the past two seasons with adverts in between has kind of ruined my enjoyment.

    What did you used to watch and perhaps I can recommend some others? Granted, many have ran their course e.g. Modern Family, but there are still a few decent ones knocking about e.g. The Grinder.

    Modern Family would have been the last one I paid much attention to. I hate the two camera living room/kitchen shows. I grew up on them and have officially had enough. The show has to move around or I can't take it. My name is Earl was great. So was Parks and Recreation and the Office. 30 Rock was fucking awesome.

    I'm not really sure whether these classify as 'sitcoms' as such, but the go-to US shows I always watch are;

    • Workaholics
    • It's Always Sunny
    • The League
    • Louie
    • The Grinder
    • Veep
    • Broad City


    Some of these are having a bit of down-time at the moment, but well worth familiarising yourself with them. Other ones like Catastrophe over here in the UK is being really well received, or you could go quite far back and watch the criminally underrated Operation Good Guys from the UK.

    Sidenote: Ever watched UK Office / Brass Eye / The Day Today / Alan Partridge / The Armando Iannucci Shows / Jam / The Thick Of It / Peep Show?

    I've seen the first couple seasons of the UK Office. Been meaning to finish it forever. Workaholics and Sunny I love but I basically never watch. I guess I just haven't made the time. Kept meaning to get around to Louie and Veep but I never do.

    Now the League, the grinder and Broad city. Those I need to look into.

    I laughed my ass off the whole way through. My girl kept asking me why guys like Die Hard so much.

    I tried simply explaining that it's the best movie of all time but she wasn't understanding.

    Cool, New Girl is a great show as is 99 but I'm kinda starting to hate Zooey Deschanel. She's the one part of that show that just isn't funny. She has no comedic bone in her body and everything she comes up with is just a blatant rip off.

    She's funny you loon. And to call her unfunny when Cece is a main character on the show is a bit crazy.

    Didn't realise this series had started again. Still just as good as before. So consistent, so stupid.

    My only gripe is that they've sort of made Captain Holt a little bit of a caricature of himself. He's now just as "zany" as the rest of them, and while he is still a hilarious character, it's sort of lost some of the gold that would come from the others interacting with such a straight laced character.

    I did think that a moment ago. The last episode I just watched had him getting involved with that betting tangent, and the next episode kicked off with him raising Jake's hand in celebration for sock-sliding across the bullpen. The old miserable Holt would've just been as you say, straight laced.

    But this back and forth with the maths problem is so good. He still has his moments.

    CJ and Pemento are great, but I think they work best in small doses.

    Cece isn't very funny either but she's only recently become a main cast member so she's hardly comparable to the protagonist of the show. She was only a bit part that grew as the seasons rolled on.

    The funny parts of New Girl are Nick, Schmidt and Winston and their hijinx. The gay barman is hilarious too.
    Jess makes me snigger very occasionally but the others make me laugh.

    It's weird but her jokes are always the broadest and she probably has the least natural comic ability in her delivery and performance.
    It's a pretty amazing show though so it's a small concern considering how good the writing iS.

    If we're ranking the characters I don't take issue with putting Jess behind the 3 males since they're all hysterical but Jess is funny in her own right. As the lead she has to be the most normal human non-outrageous character but she's still funny and also accounts for the best elements of drama the show offers.

    She made me laugh quite a bit the other day actually. She's still not funny though, that was just good writing.
    She looks too much like a woman that broke my heart for me to like her.

    There's a couple of great ones this season. The best is one where Holt and his husband get into an argument over a stupid riddle.

    Haha no I just get annoyed with Santiago's whole deal. She's a good looking dame with pretty average lines, plus the kiss ass character just annoys me. Boyle does it so well the way he sucks up to Jake, we don't need another one on the show sucking up to Holt but not as well.

    I think Amy is a great character though. Granted she's the Monica prototype, overly organized and anal retentive and a goody two shoes, but it works great against the other character types on the show. I don't see that as crossing over with Boyle's sidekick/lovable loser vibe.

    And yes she's very hot.

    She has odd teeth though, Like she has too many or something. They're like fence posts.

    The best female on the show is Gina anyway. She's also hotter than Amy.

    Agreed that Gina is the funniest female character but strong disagree that she is hotter than Amy.

    It's precisely because she's funnier that she's hotter.

    If she wasn't funny at all I'd still find her attractive though.
    I can't defend it really she's an odd looking bird but she just does it for me y'know?

    Anyone still keep up with this? Bingewatched Season 4 recently and up to date with Season 5. The episode where Crews gets busted in his own neighbourhood for being black was a powerful episode. Holt wanting to keep the incident quiet for political reasons yet Terry making an emotional plea about that wasn't why he became a police officer was very touching.

    Also they seem to be making Jake a more mature character. I think they kinda rushed the storyline with him and Rosa being in prison but still a good watch nonetheless.

    I found they did the same with the Florida trip. But it makes sense. This show is best when they work out of the 99. So you don't want your main character somewhere else for too long.

    True, I think they could've gotten a few more episodes out of it and I was enjoying Jake's cannibal cellmate. Probably could've shown a bit more about Rosa's prison life though her fantasising about beating the shit out of Hawkins and her expression was funny as fuck.

    Tim Meadows is brilliant in anything he does. Most undervalued SNL cast member ever.

    Loved The Ladies Man.

    In the movie he's looking for the woman who sent him the letter. He's got everyone in the bar with a map of the world. Pointing at it with a pointer making a big circle motion around the world he says "This is the general area for our search". Cracks me up every time I see it.

    It's fucking bullshit. 99 is the single highest rated live action comedy Fox has. But the people in charge of Fox decided a few years ago that they don't want any shows produced by outside studios (99 is produced by Universal) airing on their network.

    99 was the last show that was produced outside of Fox still airing on Fox. So Fox goes to Universal and says they want to renegotiate the deal and take more of the money from the ad revenue. This nearly stopped the show from going into production last year. Fox just pulled the same shit this year, Universal told them to get bent and Fox says the show is cancelled.

    But since it's technically a Universal property maybe the show can be shopped around to Netflix or something.

    It'll get picked up elsewhere. It has to be. It's one of the most consistently funny shows out there at the moment.

    Absolute shame. Between this being cancelled and New Girl ending, that's like 50% of the shows I watch ending.

    Love this show. Sad it is ending. Consistently one of the best comedies on broadcast tv. Fox must be really bitter about Universal producing the show.

    I do agree it should have a good chance of being picked up elsewhere... Netflix, Hulu, maybe even another broadcast network. I'm not sure about its ratings but it definitely seems popular among critics and fans. Fingers crossed.

    If this is the end... at least we got 5 seasons, and on some level its better to go out while its still very good instead of doing what The Office did.

    does anyone else think Andy Samberg's nose looks smaller in this show than it normally does? I almost thought he got a nose job at one point but I think it's just a lot of makeup and not showing him from the side

    I would like to think so @Donald. All the characters are pretty well rounded and could lead an episode in thier own way. Plus there are tons of great cameos over the course of the series.

    See @Matthew I use them all the time.

    You have to keep it for 30 days, lotjx. Stop trying to change it. You agreed to the terms when you joined the game.

    idk who that is but Lonely Island also confirmed this on twitter so we can consider it official.

    crisis averted. NBC always been the GOAT sitcom home anyway. and they have been home to Michael Schur's other shows so this seems perfect

    related note, the latest episode where Rosa was in a live shooter situation was pretty good. they incorporated an actual police crisis situation with cops being killed and still made it funny and light. this show rocks.

    I think you have this reversed. scrubs started on NBC and moved to ABC for the final 2 seasons.
