TV Review: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 2.15, “Windbreaker City”


“Where’s the line between lazy referentialism and delightful homage? It’s somewhere in the script of “Windbreaker City,” the latest sequel installment in Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s second season; nearly the entire episode is built on nods to Die Hard, but it makes so many of them at such a rapid clip that the effect conveys enthusiasm rather than lack of imagination. Like last year’s “Tactical Village,” “Windbreaker City” puts the team in a simulated law enforcement scenario, testing their mettle in the field with what adds up to a glorified game of paintball. Also like “Tactical Village,” Peralta manages to buck the rules and screw things up for everybody, but that could almost go without saying.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
