Ok, this is less of a review and more of an appreciation post really, so no rating. I watched Brooklyn 99 after the big brouhaha over fox not renewing it and nbc picking it up. I was watching to figure out what the hype was all about.
Well the hype was real. A police procedural sitcom might not rock your boat but trust me it is worth it.
The interaction between the varied and brilliant cast will always make you laugh. The immature Det. Peralta(@andysamberg ), the stern police chief captain Holt (@andre.braugher ) , by the books Amy Santiago (@melissafumero ), the weird in a good way Charles Boyle (@joelotruglio ), the biker tough girl Rosa (@iamstephbeatz ), the glorious Gina (@chelsanity ) and the strong but lovable Sgt. Terry (@terrycrews ).
Each character has its own little quirks , like Peralta's #coolcoolcoolcoolcool , Holt's undechipherable show of emotions and Terry's third person speak.
There is a laugh riot every second as the precinct twists and turns out of the rampant crime and the politics that revolve round them. Where this show excels is its brilliant pop culture references (Die Hard, I cant stop watching that I want it that way clip) , its authentic potrayal of a gay and a bi character. Cap. Holt is gay and Rosa is bi. But they are nowhere near the caricatures of bland sexuality that we see on our screen for the LGBT potrayals. There is no attempt to gloss over the sexuality of it, neither is there a need to be overt in its display. Quite simple these are real characters. And so is everyone else in the show.
I love everything about this show. There are layers to it that is missing in a lot of the shows. There is a fervent potical stand too against the wrong which is an inherent theme of the show.
Ok. I am going to stop now. But I hope you go and watch it. And love it like I do.
P.S. I absolutely adore @chelsanity . I really do. She da real mvp.
