Critic Reviews for Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 1

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (32)

Even with good writing, Gina wouldn't work nearly so well if it weren't for the deadpan, dead-on delivery of Peretti. At least half the fun of Gina's quips comes from the actress and comedian's performance.

Staleness is only one of the show's many problems.

Sep 17, 2013 | Full Review…

Just the facts, Ma'am: Brooklyn Nine-Nine is the funniest and most satisfying new broadcast sitcom of the season.

Sep 17, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Easily one of fall's better new comedies, but don't expect to be blown away yet. The pilot offers just a taste of what's to come, which is plenty good enough.

Top Critic

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, with its solid supporting cast aiding and abetting Samberg, has a so far/so good first outing that rises above the majority of this season's new fall comedies.

Top Critic

If the quality continues, Emmy-winning writer/producers Dan Goor and Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation) will have locked up a hit.

Confident, subtly poignant, and funny (with a racially and sexually diverse cast, to boot) - what else can you ask from a comedy pilot?

Feb 19, 2020 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

The fact that its die-hard fanbase pulled together to rescue it from the axe is perhaps the biggest endorsement you could want for a show. Oh, and it's really funny, which is what you want out of a sitcom really, isn't it?

Nov 16, 2018 | Full Review…

The jokes are clever, and the cast works together well enough that you'd have no idea this is the show's inaugural season.

Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…

The patter is fast and charming, the quick flashback cuts are timed just right--it hits all the basic notes of strong single-camera comedy.

Oct 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Smart and sensitive writing - certainly by the standards of network sitcoms, even by those of HBO.

Sep 16, 2013 | Full Review…

For anyone who's up to their eyeballs in dark, gritty crime dramas, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is bound to feel like a breath of fresh air.

Audience Reviews for Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season 1

  • May 06, 2020
    Season one of Brooklyn Nine-Nine offers up a healthy does of satirical cop frenzies filled with terrific characters witty gags and jokes and great blends of consistency that could've easily been too playful for its own good but ends up being genius in its own structure; making for more buzz and more eagerness to see what happens next to the squad. 4.35/5

    Funny, well written and realistic, the first season is one hell of a ride, I really like this show, especially the character development and the chemistry between them.
  • Oct 21, 2020
    I'm not as enamoured with this show as most people seem to be, but it's solid fun.
  • Oct 05, 2020
    Compared with most American comedies focusing on shit, Brooklyn nine nine's plays, jokes and jokes are cleaner, more interesting and more fun; the nine characters led by Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher are full of personality, and the chemical reaction between them is also a highlight of the play. As for police stories and related elements, it is only a bonus point for Brooklyn nine nine.

    Season 1 Pros: The Chemistry between all the actors is top-notch. They really hit it off from the first episode and it makes for some very comedic scenes Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) is my favourite character… only just I have to say There are many scenes that will make you laugh so hard, all the characters, apart from one, bring a great deal of humour to the show The Halloween episode is fantastic Each episode brings that new idea, I rarely thought any episodes were repetitive Cons: Hitchcock is the character that I don't think brings much to the show Overall, I think ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine' season 1 is a brilliant introduction to a show that I believe will only get better. While in later seasons, it may suffer from repetitiveness, season 1 certianly offers many laugh out loud moments and memorable lines. I really can't wait to explore what further seasons have to offer. Quote – "Permission to take a selfie sir?" – Jake (Straight Away) "Permission Denied" – Captain Holt Score – 4/5

  • Sep 11, 2020
    Brooklyn Nine-Nine, what can I say? Its great. Thats it. I dunno what else to say.
  • Jun 06, 2020
    9.2/10 I think it maybe impossible to dislike this show, its only flaw is that it isn't fully original but there is no weak-link in the entire show, every episode is fun, every character is likable. Absolutely hilarious, could watch these episodes over and over again.

    What's there not to love? This show is a hilarious Crime/Drama in my opinion it's super great and happens to be one of my favourite shows. Great to just throw on and have some laughs
  • May 09, 2020
    Brooklyn Nine-Nine is an entertaining and fun TV show. It menages to be that while not taking itself too seriously and seems that each of its characters were custom tailored to the people who play them.
