Did Brooklyn Nine-Nine Cop Your Interest?

Get More: Premieres, Recaps

Brooklyn Nine Nine PremiereBrooklyn Nine-Nine raced to the scene of Fox’s Tuesday comedy lineup tonight, but the question remains whether you’re willing to handcuff yourself to it all season long.

The ensemble comedy from Parks and Recreation‘s Dan Goor and Michael Schur focuses on the wacky (but  competent) detective squad of the titular precinct — which has just come under the watch of an eager new captain (played by Emmy-winner Andre Braugher). While much of the tension is derived from hotshot Det. Jake Peralta (Saturday Night Live vet Andy Samberg) flaunting Capt. Holt’s rule-abiding ways — and getting repeatedly caught mocking ‘em — every member of the supporting cast (especially Chelsea Peretti as Gina, a civilian administrator with no edit function) manages to score a laugh in the pilot. Better still, several story arcs find the writers zagging where you’d expect them to zig — especially the possible romantic connection between Stephanie Beatriz and Joe Lo Truglio’s polar-opposite characters, and even moreso, Gina turning out to be right about Capt. Holt pinging her gaydar.

Other recurring themes for the season set up in the pilot: Jake’s bet with rival hotshot Det. Santiago to see who can close more cases (he’ll score a date with her if she wins; she’ll get his car if he doesn’t); the plight of Terry Crews’ burly cop, who’s become terrified of the field since becoming a dad; and Jake’s quest to shirk Holt’s requests that he wear a tie to work.

      • Even now when I think back on the show last night, the funniest thing – and I laugh out loud – was when the guy (not sure of his name) shoots the dummy. That just sealed the deal for me to keep tuning in.

        • that was hilarious if you know the type of characters terry crews always plays, with him basically playing a parody of those roles its more than enough to keep me coming back. the rest of the cast were pretty decent too, not one of them failed to make me laugh so im definitely happy to come back for more.

    • Agreed. I laughed several times…and yes…out loud! :) When Fred Armistan opened the apartement door the first thing I thought was I wish I could see the outtakes. It is now on my must see list.

  • An excellent palate-cleanser after watching Dads. This show’s cast didn’t have a weak link in the bunch, and it’s brand of humour kept me smiling. I’ll be tuning in on a regular basis, and am quite excited to learn to love these characters.

  • I loved it, not that surprising considering I have a thing for single cam workplce comedies like this. I’m still not a huge fan of Samberg, but the ensemble makes up for Samberg, and even Samberg wasn’t bad. I’ll be watching more for sure.

    • The pilot of Sean Saves The World is the most disappointing new show I’ve seen this season. (Anna Faris’ Mom and Rebel Wilson’s Super Fun Night are tied for second.)

    • Yep. The only moment I thought was funny was at the photocopier. (“Aw, my Muffin, my head, my muffin, my head.”) The rest of the show was either boring or predictable. I used to think I would watch Andre Braugher and Terry Crews in anything. I’m now revising that belief.

    • Exactly,

      Comment by Keith – September 17, 2013 06:18 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • “Dads” was crucified for being both terrible and racist. Not “All in the Family,” Archie Bunker, making fun of the character who feels that way racist. Just straight up unfunny and awful. How anyone could like it and hate “Brooklyn Nine Nine” is beyond me. You don’t need to give up comedy. There are shows and films out there that would appeal to you and call themselves comedies and you could enjoy them happily. You could go through life having your comedic needs met so keep on keepin’ on, guys. Just maybe don’t pretend to be able to judge shows like this properly. It’s like asking a tone deaf person whether they enjoyed the music you both just listened to, or a colorblind person how they like your red or green dress. They don’t have to try to appeal to everybody, not everybody’s gonna like their style of comedy. You don’t get this, it’s probably not in you to get it, that’s okay because you don’t have to like it, and don’t try the ‘I have right to have an opinion’ thing because nobody is saying you shouldn’t. You’re just not the intended audience. Tsuki is walking away and that’s fine to figure that out, although a little head scratch worthy. Keith seems to take this personally.

      • Yeah, gays think that their little 2 percent of the population is actually a “race,” so any jokes about them, no matter how funny, is only hate by bigoted haters who hate through their hateful hate-filled bigotry…. as exploring each others rectum’s should be smiled upon and cheered….never, ever mocked…. and NEVER called perverse.

  • The ditzy girl was the funniest part of the show. Santiago is awful but I imagine that’ll change similar to how Elliot was such a B at the start of Scrubs. It wasn’t like omg hysterical but I enjoyed it.

  • Not super funny…actually, I can’t really remember a laugh out loud moment. I love AB, so I will try to remember to tune in…not a fan of the lead detective…way too obnoxious, but the rest of the cast is cool.

  • Andy Samberg is destined to be ready for prime time and Fox has high hopes for Brooklyn Nine-Nine and it could be on the verge as one of the top contenders for one of the new shows of the Fall TV season to get a full season pick up. For years they never a workplace police sitcom in years dating back from the heydays of Barney Miller and this one is destined to be a breakout hit.

  • I think this will end up like P&R. Unfunny in the 1st season but amazing starting S2. Well assuming it doesn’t get cancelled.

    • That’s exactly what I said to my husband last night. I only checked out Brooklyn Nine Nine due to the production pedigree (well, that and Andre Braugher), but I was pleasantly surprised. I think it has promise.

      Comment by Aprilcot – September 18, 2013 08:38 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I actually really enjoyed it. I’ll be tuning in next week. I liked that it was a police procedural that was actually a comedy instead of a drama. Was I falling out of my seat laughing hysterically? No. But I got in a few good laughs. Enough for me to come back next week. I feel sorry the show, though, because its lead-in is that horrible “Dads.” Brenda Song is too good for that show. I didn’t even so much as chuckle (or grin) at anything in that episode. As a matter of fact, I caught myself cringing twice–and it had nothing to do with the offensiveness of the “jokes” because I don’t care about that. But every “joke” was so cliche and my cringing was once for the fact of the triteness and the second for the people involved as I actually felt embarrassed for a couple of them. I hope the dreadfulness, and what one can only assume to be the extremely low ratings in the coming weeks, for “Dads” doesn’t horribly impact B9-9, a show that is showing legitimate potential.

    Comment by Ron – September 17, 2013 06:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Totally agree here. This was just the pilot, so hopefully the chemistry of the cast will rev up. Dads was just not funny. I found myself cringeing as well and deleted it halfway through. Someone in a different blog post claimed Dads was so brilliant because it was parodying racists but it just made me uncomfortable. Hopefully Brooklyn 99 will not suffer.

  • I really liked it and I’m pretty picky on comedy shows – not that my taste is excellent or anything, I just don’t find most sitcoms funny…I’m peculiar that way. ;-) I really want to like shows like Community, Parks and Rec or Arrested Development, but I don’t. I love Big Bang Theory. Suburgatory and Modern Family are hit or miss for me, but make me laugh enough to come back each week. But that’s about it for me, sitcom-wise. This felt a lot like Big Bang Theory, where chemistry is great between the cast, just absurd enough but with heart to keep me there. YMMV.

    • I’m just curious. Everyone says they’ll set their DVR for almost every show. Are you that busy in life? When do you watch them all? On the weekends? How boring of a weekend.

      Comment by Bob – September 18, 2013 06:38 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I can’t speak for others, but I set my DVR to record all of the shows I watch regularly, on the off-chance that I won’t be around that evening, or if I tune in late because I was watching something else. I just delete the recording later.

        Comment by EB – September 18, 2013 07:40 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Lots of reasons. Some people work evenings and/or shift work and aren’t around to watch any shows at night (that’s me). Some people have kids that have a lot of activities in the evening and by the time they’re wound down, they just want to go to bed. Some may already watch another show during the same timeslot. That’s just a few reasons why people may DVR most shows. It may sound boring to you to watch them all on weekends, but its not to me. My husband and I dont have a lot of money so when we’re stuck at home all weekend, it gives us something to look forward to. No need to come across as judgmental.

        Comment by Francine – September 18, 2013 07:52 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Actually, besides setting the DVR for nights I won’t be home, have a timeslot conflict, or am enjoying a meal with friends or family with music or conversation (not t.v.) as the background, when I am home, I simply wait until 8 minutes in for a 30 minute show or 15 minutes in for an hour-long show, then I start watching so that I can fast-forward through the commercials. (Companies still have access to me when I watch online/via iPad apps, and through in-show product placement, so I’m not ad-free, plus, I’m not part of a “Nielsen family”).

        But I appreciate that you’re so concerned about everyone’s weekend, Bob. :)

  • Enjoyed it. Felt similiar to Parks/Office (not surprising given the creators) and it seems to have a good ensemble attached.

    My only complaints are that there were a few too many locations in the episode, making every scene feel somewhat rushed.

    So for now, B99 gets a B, and look forward to what I can guarantee will be a full (20 something long) season.

  • Funnier pilot than Parks, and I trust Mike Shur and can see a lot of the dimensionality being set up. I like the format, the flashbacks, the canvassing…these can all be good devices in the future.

    Also, impressed that Braugher’s character’s secret managed to stay a secret all the way up to airing.

      Comment by Elibu – September 18, 2013 06:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post

  • This show was really bad. The only people worth watching were Braugher and Terry Crews. Andy was horrible . What was with that Civilian Assistant woman. Was she suppose to be drunk the whole show or something? I really don’t get what the critics liked about this juvenile show. Also, in my opinion, to compare it to Parks is a huge insult to Parks.

    Comment by Jane – September 18, 2013 06:07 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • To compare it to Parks now that it’s established its rhythm is perhaps an insult. But comparing it to the early episodes of Parks and Rec, which were incredibly hit or miss as the writers were finding the characters’ voices and the actors were developing their chemistry is pretty accurate.

      Comment by JLK – September 18, 2013 06:25 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I always give new shows two episodes since there is sometimes tweaking after the pilot. For me, this one earned a second episode. As someone else said, not hilarious, but decent. The cast is good.

  • Very funny. For those who asked about the funny moments (for me and I laughed out loud literally, not LOLed)

    - Yo Yo killer
    - Herbert Love shooting the mannequin
    - The “gay” flashback
    - Chelsea Peretti
    - The $5,000 ham

    There were a lot of funny moments, especially after the train wreck of Dads, which I wanted to like, since I like all of those actors. Brenda Song was the best part of that premier and only because of eye candy

  • I have been disappointed in most comedies for a lot of years, but wanted to give this a try because of Andre Braugher. I totally enjoyed this! Count me anong those who found several laugh out loud moments. It was going to be a catch-up online/on demand show because I am already DVRing two other shows in the time period, but I think that will change now. :D For me this is shaping up as a nice “must-see” bit of levity in my DVR line-up.

    And to reply to a comment and response above – I DVR virtually everything I watch, as I am seldom home in the evenings to view programs “live”. The zillion-repeat mode of my most-watched cable stations saves me since I would otherwise have more shows I want to record in each time slot every night than my DVR can handle. (If only there were a way to get my DVR to recognize the 12:05am “repeat” slot as a “series”!) D

  • I’d probably watch this is anyone BUT Andy Samberg was the lead. His comedy is completely sophomoric. Never found anything he did on SNL funny, was so happy when he left. But as everyone else is saying, humor is totally subjective. I don’t find fratboy humor funny and that’s all AS does, so I won’t be watching anymore of this show

  • I didn’t know if I’d like “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” I love Andre Braugher, but I wasn’t sure if Andy Samburg was appealing enough as a personality to like him – but i LOVED the pilot. I laughed out loud and thought the writing was crisp. The actors were great and unless the show makes too many changes from pilot to series, I will be tuning in each week. It was just pure entertainment.

    Dads” was a big disappointment for me. I came into it hoping that the complaints about the show were just from overly-sensitive people and that the cast could transcend the material (I was already a fan of most of the cast members, so with Green, Reigert, Ribisi and Mull I expected a more). This was hackneyed and stilted from the word go. The actors gave it their best, but the material was just so obvious and belch. I know what they were going for and they missed it by a country mile. If the network is giving it a chance to find an audience, lets hope the writers find the funny because last night shows they don’t where where it is.

  • For all of the people that didnt like the pilot are you mad that there wasnt a laugh track telling you when to laugh? I mean what was your problem? I thought it was a really good solid show. You can tell it going for a 30 Rock vibe and it will get there just needs time to grow

  • I liked it except for Andy Samburg. He was just plain annoying and unfunny. Everything else about it was great. I could sit through it, but it won’t be appointment viewing.

  • Love Andre Braugher.

    BTW, it’s flouting, not “flaunting Capt. Holt’s rule-abiding ways”

    • Thank you! Drives me nuts. He was flouting Capt. Holt’s ways, taunting him in the process. He was NOT flaunting those ways or even touting them.

  • I liked it! It was a strong pilot and I feel the show has a lot of potential. The episode had me laughing even more than I was at New Girl’s (somewhat disappointing) return, which usually is one of my favorite shows. I’ll definitely keep watching the show!

  • I feel like I already saw the episode after watching the 2 1/2 minute trailer. Almost all of the funny moments were in that preview…. I’ll definitely stick around to see if it’s worth watching.
