TV Review: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 2.17, “Boyle-Linetti Wedding”


“There is no actor more perfect to play Joe Lo Truglio’s dad than Stephen Root; and there is no actress more perfect to play Chelsea Peretti’s mom than Sandra Bernhard. So an episode explicitly named for the marital union between Lynn Boyle and Darlene Linetti attains perfection on at least two different planes, which gives “Boyle-Linetti Wedding” a whole lot of juice even before the pre-credits skit reaches its conclusion. We know from the outset that we’re going to get ample helpings of Root and Bernhard, here, and frankly the fact that we’ve arrived at their big day after their first meeting in “Jake and Sophia” feels like a huge payoff in and of itself.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
