    Yet another TV show based off of a C-list movie, weird. There has been Dominion, Limitless, etc. Could be good, i love Shantel and i love snipers/military stuff/off the grid stuff so who knows.

  2. Kim says:

    Very excited about Shooter!

    Y the last man!! No way. I am very curious about how this plays out. Also love that Nick Offerman is finally coming to Brooklyn 99 and him playing Holt’s ex is just icing on the cake.

    I wanted Offerman to be the new Captain. :(

    • rarefied says:

      Yes, me too, but seeing as the new captain died right off the bat, I’d rather have him as a living, potentially recurring character.

  5. Lizo says:

    Omg yes.

    I’ve hated Offerman ever since he gave a pitiful “comedy” performance at a homecoming event at Florida State. During stand-up you get to show who you are as opposed to acting. He made very little attempt to be humerus, instead choosing to go on 5 minute long rants about whatever he wanted and then throw a bad joke in at the end. It was offensive, and not in the dirty or dark comedy kind of way. out of 12,500 people about 75% walked out of his show. Can’t be a fan after that. So not excited for his stint on B-99 because so far I think it’s had great casting, recurring and guest stars.
