Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season 2 Reviews

January 10, 2019
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is such a reliable show, every episode pretty much delivers exactly what you want from it. It's fantastic.

It hasn't really missed a step. The amazing cast of supporting players keep the show in the "must see" zone while Andy Samberg's Jake Peralta still drags things down a bit with his ham-handedness.

I'm curious if new viewers were a touch overwhelmed -- though there were certainly enough good punch lines to lure them in. Brooklyn Nine-Nine's world is unquestionably a fun one to hang out in.

At first glance Brooklyn Nine-Nine looks like a vehicle for the SNL comedian Samberg but it's much more an ensemble comedy. And it's the chemistry between the characters that makes this daft send-up of Seventies cop comedies worth watching.

The interplay between the steely, unsmiling Braugher and goofy try-hard Andy Samberg has brought out great things in both of them.

It's funny, maybe not as funny as it should be, but still chock full of terrific gags and punchlines, most of them property of Lo Truglio and Braugher.

The reason why Brooklyn Nine-Nine clicks back into place so seamlessly is due to how well defined these characters are. We don't need to be reintroduced to anyone.

This episode was like my favorite winter jacket. I may not have worn it for six months, but it fits like a glove, it's comfortable and familiar, and does the job it's designed to do.

It was natural to wonder how they would get Peralta back into the 99th Precinct house again and how long it would take once the second season began. The answer? It took about five minutes.

It just felt so pleasing to have this show back. Hell, I was just glad to have the opening credits sequence back.

A slowly improving, engaging sitcom like Brooklyn Nine-Nine is the sort of thing that can buttress an empire, not establish one.
September 29, 2014
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is frequently deceptively sharp, clever, and layered. Ultimately, it was a delight to see this team brought back together and heading into what looks to be an interesting, weird, and hilarious second season.

Peralta and the precinct are back: Brooklyn Nine-Nine's season premiere brings some big laughs, but a few faults from last season remain.
