I feel like this show could use about 30% less Andy Samberg and about 200% more Terry Crews.

I agree! I watched the pilot and the second episode and that was it. Disappointing as I usually liked all of the stuff Samberg did on SNL and especially liked his Digital Shorts (yes, I know he had a lot of help with them). So I had high hopes for this show but its just TERRIBLE!!!

I like it, I find Gina to be quite amusing, similar to April on Parks and Rec, they are finding their footing imo.

Not there yet but I am not really on board though. I have not really enjoyed any of the episodes so far but the creators have a huge amount of rope with me.

Maybe my standards are low, but I'm really enjoying this. Love Braugher's character. Like the supporting characters.

Just feel like Sandberg has it dialed to 11 and should take it down to 8 or so.

I've seen shows much worse than this. Season pass is still holding.

And what shows are much worse that lost its season pass with one viewing? Dads, Men With Kids, and a show whose name I've forgotten but it took place at an animal hospital and featured a comic monkey.

I like all the other characters but Samberg's Peralta would be the one that would cause me to toss this show.

They either need to tone him down or reduce his part.

I actually think Samberg has been getting better each week. In the last episode, where he was "number two", he was far less manic and over the top. His character still has a very big personality--that's his character. But he doesn't seem nearly as much like he's in a an extra-long SNL sketch as he did in the pilot.

Me too. It's stupid and absurd, and some times that's exactly what I'm in the mood for.

I liked the pilot but am really starting to enjoy the show. This week with the bit about the Vulture and them all working together (even if they were drunk) - that was great. Samberg had toned it down and I laughed a few times. Loved them reenacting the murder "I've already been the door". I hope it keeps on like this.

I got the feeling that the most recent episode was filmed a while after the previous episodes, after the series was picked up. The precinct station looked a bit different to me. Maybe by then Sandberg had been given some notes to tone down his character a bit.

Still waching the show and enjoying it quite a bit. Probably my favorite new sitcom this year.

The Vulture is played by the same actor who does the "Mayhem" insurance commercials. Sure enough, the commercial is played during the show.

I noticed that too.

Was the guy also Liz Lemon's ex-boyfriend from 30 Rock?

Yeap, and also he's been a recurring character in Law & Order SVU (currently dating one of the main detectives.)

We are really enjoying this show.

And Dean Winters (Vulture) will always be Ryan O'Reilly to me.

Just saw current ep last night. Love the addition of Dean Winters. Been a fan of his since Oz and even LMAO at his 'Mayhem' commercials. Toward the end of the show, as they were going to a commercial segment and as I was reaching for the remote to FF through, there was a new (new to me anyway) 'Mayhem' commercial. Hope they keep him in the series. Still enjoying it very much.
