I didn't watch the GG awards, but I was surprised that B99 won as did Andy. I'm glad they gave it to someone new and this show gets recognized. Better than most sitcoms out there and it improves every week.

I agree.

And this is why they actually run the horse races. I like B99, and don't care for P&R.

Y'all are crazy. You clearly haven't watched much P&R.

Although last night's ep of B99 might be my favorite thus far.

I think both B99 and P&R are good.

Great Episode last night. I think the best of the series so far.

As do I, as I have been pretty clear about. I just think P&R has had 4 seasons of good-to-incredibly hysterical consistency (and one half season where it kind of sucked ), and B99 is still finding itself (but getting progressively better and better). And when it comes to silly awards that try to somehow quantify and place a hierarchical order on "Art", I think P&R is more deserving of one than B99 at this point in their respective lifespans.

it's all hookers all the time on B99!

Seriously the prostitute part for just for an instant and nothing I would be concerned about with my kids (if they were young)

No. There's a competition for most number of felony busts and Peralta rolls a posse of guys from a sting he organized through the precinct to up his numbers.

No, it was a plot device this time. Since this is the spoiler thread...

The bet was to have the most felonies in a years. Peralta broke up a Prostitution ring which netted him 36 arrests, about half of which were felonies (2x offenders). It's definitely not a vice crime show. The humor is kind of adult though. Fine for teenagers, but I wouldn't have an 8 year old watch it.

I have tried to get into P&R a couple times. At least once or twice a season. The lead, the blonde lady, and some of the plots, just don't seem all that funny.

Hope this show continues. I suppose the GG award won't hurt toward that end.

I thought this was kind of cool. This is Chelsea Peretti and Andy Samberg on their way to their 6th grade graduation ceremony:

So THAT's why she's on the show. A painfully bad character.

Wow she looks almost exactly the same. Samberg, on the other hand, looks quite different now.

I hated her character at first, but she has grown on me in the last few episodes.

Kind of bummed that was the season finale.

Definitely the best new comedy of the year, for me.

Always nice when Santiago puts on a dress.

I am sorry it's the season finale, but I think they did a GREAT job with it.

Not quite enough Terry in the finale, but some great scenes with Holt, so it balances out.

Wife and I were remarking how this show improved week after week. I agree, the best new sitcom of the season, and I'm disappointed it's done for the season already.

I watch both shows, and I think The Goldbergs is a much funnier show. Better writing, less forced.

This thread isn't about both shows, not sure what you are trying to prove with your post. That you're "argumentative". That you're a rebel?

Please continue to poop wherever you like, keeps us all on our toes......
