    Liked it. Keeping it for now.

    Dads - not as much. I'll give it one more episode.

    I forgot to mention earlier that aside from what I enjoyed on-screen above, this show was created by Mike Schur, who created Parks & Rec, and was writer/producer on The Office. Both of those shows started off slowly, but were course-corrected once the writers/producers got a better feel for the characters, and I have full confidence that Schur can make the necessary tweaks on this show as well.

    I watched this right after Dads which I thought was so awful that I pretty much tuned out 10 minutes in. When B99 came on I was still in tune out mode so I wasn't paying attention. I guess I'll try again

    I liked when they arrested the thief and threw him in jail. Crook in a Box.

    Andy Samberg is like David Spade to me. No matter how old he is, he still looks 16. I don't buy him as a cop or a detective. But I thought it was pretty funny in a quirky way.

    We were able to watch about 10 minutes and then had to delete it. We thought it was awful - and my wife and I are big Andre Braugher fans. Ahhh well.

    Sitcom pilots are incredibly difficult because a lot of humor in a typical sitcom comes from knowing the characters. You don't have that in a pilot. Most sitcoms take a few episodes to hit their stride. The creators behind this show have shown in the past that they can bring the funny. I have full confidence that they can do it here as well. Crime show tropes are ripe for parody. There is definitely a great deal of potential here.

    I DVR'ed this, but forgot about Dads. Sounds like I did good.

    I recorded it even though the previews looked like garbage. Sounds like I should give it a shot.

    Watched it before Dads and I enjoyed it. Both those shows will get a few more episodes at least, but Dads may get put on the backburner when I have to choose shows where this one I think I will jump on shortly after it has recorded.

    I'm not exactly sure why, but I was very amused by this show. So many rewind and laugh again moments. Maybe I was too sleep deprived when I watched it, making it seem funnier than it was.

    Totally agree with everything you said. I'll give it two more shows before making mind up.

    So, I couldn't be sure (and couldn't be bothered to back up and check) because it went by so fast: was the disco strangler played by Kevin McDonald? Also there was an SNL alum as one of the people in the apartment when they went door to door but I'm spacing on who it was (2am, I should be asleep...)

    My wife wonders when the special episode with JT in it will be...

    Yes, Fred Armisen was one of the people who opened the door when they went doorknocking.

    He was listed as one of the cast in the email that TiVo sent. I thought he was going to be part of the show, not just a cameo.

    The pilot of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is free on iTunes, if you missed it. (And also, as mentioned upthread, airing again tonight).

    Didn't find it funny at all, not even a grin. I didn't find Parks & Rec funny either so it makes sense that this wouldn't pass for me.

    I think Fox is pretty much committed to airing Raising Hope on Fridays now, especially as it recently announced that they will be airing it in an hour block (and holding back on the Enlisted premiere until at least January). If Dads does get cancelled, I think New Girl repeats fill the slot, at least for the short term.

    The only real problem I had with B99 was the "bet" storyline - I can't see any good way how that plays out.

    I assumed I would love this, since the P&R guys created it, it got glowing reviews from everybody I trust, and I don't hate Samberg. But I was not feeling it after the pilot.

    I enjoyed it and it's on a season pass. At least for awhile.

    as posted elsewhere:

    Caught the pilot last night and thought it showed promised, especially since Andy Samberg is hilarious imho. Seemed to get good reviews elsewhere.
