TV Review: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Episode 2.14, “Defense Rests”


“After a brief absence and a criminally unfunny opening sequence, “Defense Rests” gets Brooklyn Nine-Nine on the right track, with a trio of overarching plot developments… but man is that opener a letdown. Seriously, ants? That’s what we get after skipping a Sunday in the dead of winter? Ants? What, are rodent infestations just too much of a New York City cliché1? Granted, not every intro can reach the euphoric heights of “hot damn” or “no regrets,” because reasonably speaking not every intro can lean on Andre Braugher’s superhuman wryness, which he may have gained after being directly exposed to cosmic rays on a space mission gone awry.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
