I'm not a big fan of comedy but I really liked this one. Enjoyable.

A great show to watch on those rainy days! This show is one of my favorites and one that I go back to all the time. Its witty, hilarious, and the cast has a great dynamic/chemistry.

The casting on this comedy is perfect. There's nothing extraordinarily new - it's a standard sitcom, but done consistently enough that there's always a laugh to be had. That would be enough, but each of these archetypal characters do grow and deepen as the seasons go on.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is consistently clever and very funny. I think it's one of only a couple sitcoms on regular network TV that are worth watching. The other is The Big Bang Theory by the way.

This show gets better the less of a jerk Peralta becomes. Awesome show with a diverse cast that works so well together. Patton Oswalt's fire marshal as a recurring character makes me happy.

5/5 stars. There isn’t a lot of media that I would rate a clean 100%, but I couldn't bring myself to even deduct 0.1 from this show. The show centers around a police precinct, with main character Jake Peralta -an amazing but goofy cop- dealing with his new tightly wound police captain, Raymond Holt. Though this show relies on basic sitcom structure, the development and depth of the characters are amazing. Many sitcoms, comedies, and movies rely on humour that mocks and perpetuates racist, homophobic, or sexist stereotypes, but Brooklyn Nine-Nine does none of that. The show has an extremely diverse cast and features POC characters as well as LGBT characters, neither of which are defined by their sexuality or race, a welcome break from many other shows and movies. Brooklyn Nine-Nine also tears down the walls of masculinity, showing Terry Jeffords (played by the wonderful Terry Crews) as a loving and nurturing parent and Sargent. All in all, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is an amazing show that deserves the right amount of popularity that it receives, and will hopefully continue for many more seasons.

Brooklyn Nine Nine is a television series that originally aired on the Fox network, before being cancelled after 5 seasons, but was then picked up by NBC for a sixth season. Created by Dan Goor, and Michael Schur, Brooklyn Nine Nine is an American comedy television series. I really enjoyed the first season of Brooklyn Nine Nine. I think it introduced the main and recurring characters really well, as well as having decent plot lines throughout all of the episodes. I found that because of this being the first season, plot lines were a bit more archetypical, and not really anything out of the box. However, I found the character development as well as the development of the relationships throughout the first season to be really well done. I find that the Brooklyn Nine Nine series has an uncanny resemblance to The Office, also an american comedy series. Brooklyn Nine Nine is one of my favourite television series, and I would rate this season 4.5/5.

As soon as I watched the first episode, I knew that this show was going to be a good one, and I definitely wasn’t proven wrong. The American sit-com’s stellar cast includes Andy Samberg as Detective Jake Peralta, Melissa Fumero, as Amy Santiago, Stephanie Beatriz as Rosa Diaz, Terry Crews as Sergeant Terry, Andre Braugher as Captain Ray Holt and Chelsea Peretti as Gina Linetti. The show revolves around the life of Jake Peralta, a talented yet slightly immature detective who loves solving cases but hates following the rules. His work environment completely changes when Ray Holt becomes Captain at the 99th precinct. The show has multiple, interesting storylines and has some hilarious jokes. If you have watched comedy shows, ‘Friends’ or ‘The Office’ in the past and have enjoyed them, then this show is definitely for you!

Just when I thought I would never find another comedy I enjoyed as much as the Office, I found Brooklyn 99. And it all starts with season 1. Even the very first episode is hilarious, setting the bar high and raising it with every new episode. It’s got a nice combo of personalities, and it pulls a comical side from sometimes dark material without making the show itself dark. Season 1 is also the beginning of many ongoing or recurring storylines - you really need to see it to get full enjoyment of the following seasons. It’s really, honestly funny, and I recommend it, especially because it’s ongoing!

The 22 minutes Saturday-Live-like skits got boring fast when it comes to serious police business. Well, I liked "Jump Street" movies but have enough pointless juvenile sitcom with an obnoxious lead-actor. Bring me police comedies but with some intelligence or originality like Beverly Hills Cops, Naked Gun, Ride Along, 48 hours, Police Academy, Rush Hour, Lethal Weapon etc.

Surprisingly good show - some great characters starting with the chief - but the detective on the team that is styled like "larry/gary" from Parks and Rec does not work in this show. Talented cast.

Take 12-14 emotionally unstable and psychical damaged people, give some of the guns and some of them office equipment, and insanity is the only possible outcome. Hilarious hijinks, cringe worthy social exchanges, and an occasional arrest somehow creates a wonderful half hour that leaves you wanting more. If only we could see the real annoying people in our life as this funny we would all want to head to the office!

Interesting ensemble casting. Melissa Fumero is particularly charming/pretty; dynamic Terry Crews really lights up the screen.
