TV Review: Brookyn Nine-Nine, Episode 2.04, “Halloween II”


“Coming on the heels of “The Jimmy Jab Games”, “Halloween II” feels like a retread. Two episodes in a row, we’ve seen the Nine-Nine crew shut down the entire precinct in favor of hijinks and shenanigans. Outside of assembling the safety pumpkins, no police work gets done, unless you count the flashback sequence in which Rosa detains Dan “Fingers” McCreery. This is, of course, the series’ standard operating protocol. Brooklyn Nine-Nine just wouldn’t be as successful as it is without its through lines of absurdity. We don’t actually tune in to see the cast bust bad guys. We tune in for ridiculousness.” – Via Paste Magazine
