TV Review: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 2.01, “Undercover”

201B99_scn46_005_hires2_article_story_large

“With just a sub-minute moment of catch-up between cast members and a snappy meta quip from Andy Samberg, Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s second season premiere gets off to a brisk start. Admittedly, that zippy through line feels kind of dishonest; morehas to have happened in the six months since Jake parted ways with the gang in “Charges and Specs,” but maybe Jake Peralta really is the Nine-Nine’s driving force for activity and shenanigans. Maybe the most that can happen in his absence are random incidents with Boyle at the focal points. (Santiago is right: he does look pretty spiffy in that suit.)” (Via Paste Magazine.)

  1. I was just able to catch the pilot and it wasn’t strong as I hoped it would be, but I have high hopes for the story build up. It’s still a great show IMHO. 😀

    • It’s a half hour of set-up. I guess I’m not expecting much more from a comedy premiere than that, but it does have the courtesy to be real damn funny when it’s not just moving bricks into place.
