Critic Reviews for Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 6

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (16)

"He Said, She Said" handles misconduct with both humor and sensitivity.

Mar 1, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a dark episode, one which may invoke a lot of feelings in the women who watch, who recognize their experiences on screen.

Mar 1, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

For anyone worried about the show changing tacts for its new bosses, fear not -- it's still the same show and still great.

Jan 11, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

They're good episodes although the second feels a little more familiar, or typical - fast, irreverent, bound to logic by only the most fragile of threads.

Jan 9, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Braugher wields the show's popcorn-cooking patter like a scalpel... [making] each punchline land to even greater effect. It's one of television's best performances, and in this year, it's better than ever before.

Jan 9, 2019 | Full Review…

If you'd told me in 2013, when Brooklyn Nine-Nine debuted, that a cop comedy starring the guy most famous for "Dick in a Box" would end up producing one of the best #MeToo TV episodes ever, I'd have thought you were bananas.

Mar 5, 2019 | Full Review…

With this forward movement at its center, and having already been renewed for an eighth season ahead of seven's release, it simply looks like our friends are here to stay for now. And thank goodness for that, for all of our sakes.

Dec 16, 2019 | Full Review…

Brooklyn Nine-Nine deserves to be praised for its ability to simultaneously make fans laugh and keep them on the edge of their seat without taking away from the social issues the series manages to address.

May 17, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The show's new network, NBC, has taken the core qualities of this unstoppable comedy and given them a bit of a glow-up. That's what honeymoons are all about.

Feb 14, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The new season is in no way revelatory, but more of the same -- it's just that the same was already so damn good.

Feb 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is what it has always been: Kind, quick, and very, very funny.

Jan 16, 2019 | Rating: 8.7/10 | Full Review…

It is just as funny as ever due to the show's signature combination of earnestness and comedy.

Audience Reviews for Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season 6

  • Dec 10, 2020
    Oof. Even though I'm glad NBC picked up Brooklyn 99 after the FOX backlash, unfortunately, the "Casecation" episode was so bad that it's definitely considered to be the outlier of an otherwise uplifting crime sitcom. The tone, character development, and treatment of social issues was way off. Amy being disrespectful to Jake Peralta in "Casecation" made me lower my rating for season 6 down 2 stars. However, there are a lot of other redeeming episodes such as "Ticking Clocks", "Cinco de Mayo", Crime Scene", and the Hitchcock and Scully flashback episode that allow to me to give it at least 3 stars. Had it not been for the questionable outlier episodes "Casecation" and "Gintars", Season Six would definitely be a legendary improvement over the FOX seasons. I always skip those outliers whenever I want to rewatch Brooklyn 99. Otherwise, great show! If NBC isn't careful when tackling the Black Lives Matter movement in Season 8, Brooklyn 99 will suffer a big loss and be at risk of being cancelled again. Brooklyn 99 is one of my favorite shows, but I can't let the NBC era of Brooklyn 99 ruin the chemistry between Jake and Amy or even my favorite friendships (Jake and Boyle, Rosa and Amy, and Rosa and Terry).

    I was totally digusted at season 6 episode 11, The Therapist , it was totally disrespectful to people who suffer from multiple personality disorder (Dissociative identity disorder) It was as if yous were mocking people with that disorder. It certainly isn't very funny to people that have to live with this illness, it has got to be one of the worst mental health illnesses that people have to live with , they are usually rejected by their own families and so called friends , so they have already been through enough abuse and trauma in their whole life without being mocked by idiots that know nothing about it or it wouldn't have happened. It is a real illness and the individuals living with it deserve respect. That's all I'm saying on the matter, totally disappointed in yous 😡😡🙄

    Felt more than a little disturbed with the shift into moral myopia here. Our heroic protagonist gets a guy (who committed a very minor non-violent crime) deported to prevent him from earning the love of his son. The show has always been a form of copaganda (attorneys are all evil and their only purpose is to get dangerous criminals out of jail, unless the suspect is innocent, in which case the attorneys turn incompetent and only cops can save the day), but this is the first time it was that blatant and mean-spirited.

    In the new season that NBC takes over, everything else is still familiar. Although NBC has saved the whole play, it can't stop some facts. That is, season 6 is the new beginning and the official end of fox era. Some people leave and others will stay, Brooklyn Nine nine is still a big family, but the actors can't stop them when they are old. Fortunately, the joy they can bring will not disappear.

    Season 6 is tough to judge. It's good. Very funny, some really heartfelt moments, and is watchable, but its very different from the other 5 seasons. The jokes are of similar quality, but now its super preachy. The episode "He said she said" is a mess. Its a fun season, but its not as good.
  • Aug 24, 2020
    With a shortened amount of episodes and a lot more swearing, the show just doesn't quite feel the same as the past 5 seasons. Season 6 wasn't necessarily bad, I mean it was quite funny and the same enjoyment that I felt previously. season 6 gave 0 hoots, and took things to a higher level, I really enjoyed the season none the less, it just took me by surprise

    Brooklyn nine nine is an incredible series of police comedy, however it contains an approach to several current issues, such as racism and homophobia. It is also possible to notice the strong bonds of friendship between the characters. The combination of humor with important subjects and characters that constantly question the system they are inserted in, gives a special touch to the series and become it much more interesting.

    Brooklyn Nine-Nine is my favorite show, but that isn't going to cloud my judgement regarding this review. The undeniable truth is that a shows popularity decreases over time with the addition of new seasons. B99 is no exception. Aside, from a few episodes here and there, the first 5 seasons were outstanding. They were so well written and executed that one could re-watch them over and over again without getting bored. Season 6, however was a letdown. Season 6 had many salient differences from the first 5 which made the show somehow lose its old charm. Season 6 saw a sudden increase in the pace of dialogues which I was not a fan of not because it was hard to follow but because it didn't seem natural and hindered the progression of the story line. The episodes began seeming repetitive and the lack of new story lines was another disappointing part of season 6. Somewhere along the line, the writers began more interested in bringing up important social issues which is obviously a good thing, but it ended up making the show lose its originality and rewatchability. However, there is always a sliver lining. It seemed like the writers were listening to the fan base's opinions and incorporating them into the show which is something I didn't ever expect to happen in a TV show so it was definitely nice to see. The inclusion of various guest stars was also a good part and something I definitely want to continue in further seasons. The show is beginning it's slow decline which is saddening, but I hope it will go out in a " Blaze of Glory."

    It's been more than a year since I watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine, ever since I finished Season 5. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Season 6 did not disappoint at all. The comedy was A+, the characters I knew and loved were still the same, and the feud with Commissioner Kelly was interesting to boot. I also enjoyed the occasional mystery / crime action episodes. However, one of my complaints would be that the appearances with Gina felt rather out of place, as she would appear and disappear without much context (Granted, this is understandable considering the cast adjustments). My second complaint is that I was just NOT a fan of the shaky camera-work, and it took some getting used to. Otherwise, this was a fun, entertaining season that got me back into the B99 groove once again.

    The first season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine to air on NBC following its shift from Fox, the show fortunately doesn't loses any of its strengths, and might even gain some polish. Kicking off after quite a few major plot developments from last season, Brooklyn Nine-Nine's writer found plenty of interesting directions to go this year, and actually increased the indelible characters of Hitchcock and Scully into being regulars (they even get an origin story this year!). While it's a shame that Chelsea Peretti made her exit this year as Gia, she went out with a bang, and all the other characters are so well developed that her absence doesn't significantly hurt the show. Still one of the most reliably consistent shows on network tv!
