From Emmy Award-winning writer/producers of "Parks and Recreation" and starring Emmy Award winners Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, BROOKLYN NINE-NINE is a new single-camera workplace comedy about what happens when a hotshot detective (Samberg) gets a new Captain (Braugher) with a lot to prove.
One of the best comedies I've ever seen, full of lovable characters (that actually manage to be a functional team) and funny without being mean. I wanted to write 'Andre Braugher is a gift' but that's actually true for everyone else on the show, too. Or how Gina would say 'Smiley face. Thumbs up. Gold star.'
Show is hilarious. Every character has their place and is unique yet simultaneously belongs as part of the whole Nine-Nine team. Judicious use of guest stars. Show is easy to watch which leads to great binge watching. Andy Samberg plays his character brilliantly. I also love the Jake/Amy will they/won't they but I hope it won't get dragged out forever.
I gave this show a 5 stars because why not. It has had the strongest start a comedy has had in super ages. One of the very few shows where you actually laugh out loud in front of your TV. Andy Samberg's hasn't had to carry the weight of the show with stars like joe, melissa, terry and the others contributing equally. Brooklyn nine-nine might end up being in the history books. Watch the show. You will not regret it!
