Exclamation Brooklyn Nine Nine (Season 1 Thread)

Thought I'd start a season thread for Brooklyn Nine Nine. Caught the pilot last night and thought it showed promised, especially since Andy Samberg is hilarious imho. Seemed to get good reviews elsewhere.

Anyone else watch?

I watched it, and even enjoyed it. It's on my SP.

I liked the second episode. I was somewhat on the fence about this show after the pilot, as I'm not an Andy Samberg fan, but liked the rest of the cast, and the premise.

And I thought the 2nd ep showed improvement. Funny story, interesting characters. So far so good, I'll keep watching.

I love this show. I had several LOL moments.

It has a good mix of heart and humor.

Bear in mind that those posts were a week ago, pointing people to the existing discussion of the pilot episode...

I didn't see the pilot but enjoyed the 2nd episode. It was not as funny as New Girl or The Mindy Project that followed after it, but there were a couple of really funny lines in it.

I liked the second episode better than the first. Not a show I will go out of my way to watch but the characters were established and it worked pretty well.

the second episode was OK. We are going to give it maybe 2 more weeks for real laughs otherwise it's getting the ax.

Correct. I wasn't chastising, just informing. In my usual curt way.

Fox in Philly cut into audio for a couple minutes towards end of show for an Amber Alert. I had to enable closed captioning to read the dialog. I was also recording NCIS. CBS Philly did the sensible thing of providing streaming text of the Amber Alert on the bottom 1/3 of the screen.

I thought they toned down the Samberg character just a notch and I enjoyed the second episode much more than the pilot. It's getting more of a Barney Miller vibe and that brings back fond memories.

I definitely felt Barney Miller in the second episode. I wasn't a huge fan of that show, but I watched it sometimes. I like the interaction between Brougher's character and Samberg's character and when they show how the previous Captain handled it.

I'm interested to see how the show develops, but for me they push some of the gags too far and it becomes too farcical. For example, sleeping in a tent in the briefing room.

It's ok, but they really could tone it down and it would be much better. Not every sentence needs to be a set up for a punch line.

Finally caught E01 online, and have E02 waiting for me. I'm in. I really enjoyed it. Samberg is pretty funny and I like the girl too. I like the guy who plays Captain and have seen him elsewhere. The new CO is good. Like dorky guy and scary girl. Lots of variety in the characters.

Wow, I can't believe anyone liked the pilot episode of this show. I thought it was absolutely painful to watch. Season pass deleted.

Episode 3 wasn't at good as the first 2, but still funny.

I actually thought the opposite. Episode 3 made it a keeper for me. The only part I don't like is the annoying non-cop.

Agree about the non-cop, she annoys me. She reminds me of the parts that Molly Shannon always plays, which I can't stand.

I really like this show. Agree about the non-cop. She's annoying. But I really like the interplay with Samberg and Brougher.

We watched the last episode based on some recommendations. Wow, what an absolutely unfunny show. I agree with bengalfreak, I don't get all the love. I didn't even smile, it just made me angrier.

Third ep. was better than the second, which was better than the first. I agree that Gina is a waste of screen time, at least so far.

Of the new sitcoms I'm watching this year, so far this one seems to be the best.

I'm done after 1-1/2. Used to like Samberg on SNL but not anymore. The Unusuals was much funnier (and it wasn't a sitcom).
