Brooklyn Nine-Nine: New network, the future of the Halloween heist, and maybe more Gina Rodriguez?

It’s been more than two months since NBC stepped in and picked up Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a sixth season, but plenty of questions remain about the sitcom’s transition to its new network home. If the show premieres at midseason, how will it be able to stage the Halloween heist? Will Gina Rodriquez return to romance Rosa…

Brooklyn Nine-Nine to reward faithful fans with that Hitchcock and Scully content they crave

Recognizing that the show’s fans have been just as shaken up and jerked around—which, possible sex tape title?—by recent developments as everybody else in its cast and crew, the cast of Brooklyn Nine-Nine was happy to treat fans at the show’s Comic-Con panel this evening to promises of the content they crave: More hot…

The best TV of 2018 so far

Disappointing season of your favorite prestige drama got you down? Let down by the big sitcom revival that promised to open up a dialogue, but just wound up taking potshots at easy (and vulnerable) targets while setting up a runway for Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing over at Old Man Murdoch’s place? A thousand Netflix…

With the promise of a new day, “Jake & Amy” makes a near perfect Brooklyn Nine-Nine ending

A-

“Jake & Amy” could’ve easily functioned as a proper series finale for Brooklyn Nine-Nine. In terms of its status on FOX, that’s kind of what it is. As an episode that will have follow-up though, it’s also quite refreshing to have a season finale that doesn’t end with the characters in a state of absolute chaos. …

Let Terry Crews cheerfully yell you through all 5 seasons of Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Brooklyn Nine-Nine made extensive headlines last week with its sudden sitcom Lazarus act, moving from “beloved fifth-season comedy series” to “unjustly canceled martyr” to “proud member of the NBC fall line-up” in the span of just 24 hours. But where does this sudden burst of Nine-Nine interest leave everybody who’s…

Here's our 1st look at Gina Rodriguez playing Rosa's love interest on Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans have accomplished a whole heck of a lot in the last month or so. Not only did our outcry over Fox’s cancellation of the beloved sitcom result in the series returning to its corporate birthplace, NBCUniversal, for a sixth season, but the couple we only recently started ’shipping might become a…

Terry Crews talks Deadpool 2, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and toxic masculinity on The Daily Show

Human-shaped charm mountain Terry Crews was typically delightful in his sit-down with Trevor Noah on Wednesday’s Daily Show. Noah ran down Crews’ seemingly endless list of accomplishments (former NFL player, painter, furniture designer, sitcom star, former-future POTUS) as the two talked over what’s arguably Crews’…

All the famous people who helped rescue Brooklyn Nine-Nine are now friends

Stars—They’re just like us! They publicly complain when their favorite shows get cancelled, lead the vanguard for the campaign to renew said show, and then form lasting bonds of friendship with their fellow stars in an ultra-secret group chat. Just like we all do! As Mashable reports, that’s exactly what Lin-Manuel…

Screw it: Let’s just talk about how happy we are Brooklyn Nine-Nine is still alive

A-

By the time I’d started watching my screener for season five’s penultimate episode, “White Whale,” Brooklyn Nine-Nine had officially been canceled. So I wasn’t exactly in the best state of mind to watch the episode; even if it were an all-time classic episode of Brooklyn Nine-NIne, that would just be a reminder that…

Fox cancels The Mick, Last Man On Earth, and, holy shit, Brooklyn Nine-Nine

The “pre-upfronts cancellation spree” has become a staple of the TV industry in recent years, as networks clean weaker performers off their slates in advance of selling the hot new season to advertisers and journalists alike. Still, there’s bloodbaths, and then there’s bloodbaths, and Fox indulged in one of the…

With “Show Me Going,” the Nine-Nine learns to cope during crisis

A-

Despite working a stripped down version of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, “The Box” was an episode that featured an excellent balance of humor and a more police-centric, serious tone. “Show Me Going” goes for a similar approach too—in terms of the balance—albeit doing so with the help of the entire ensemble this time. And while…

Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s "Bachelor/ette Party" really is a "cray cray night of funky fun"

A

Except for all the alcohol intake, Jake’s bachelor party and Amy’s bachelorette party in the appropriately titled “Bachelor/ette Party” aren’t exactly wild and crazy experiences. They’re certainly not The Hangover—as Brooklyn Nine-Nine did that back in season four’s “Cop-Con”—but instead just a chill appreciation of……

After a double feature, Brooklyn Nine-Nine pulls out a strangely safe episode

B-

“Gray Star Mutual” is the Brooklyn Nine-Nine episode to come after the one-two punch of a corporate conspiracy set on destroying Jake’s (and Boyle’s!) life and Jake’s long-lost half-sister. So in a way, it makes sense for it to be a chill, cool down episode. But when you consider that this is also an episode with…
