TV Review: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 2.19, “Sabotage”


“Every once in a while, it’s nice to be reminded that the non-principal cast members on Brooklyn Nine-Nine are people too. Last week, the series drilled down on Jake Peralta and did a lot of work to flesh him out as a complex human being with more layers beyond “clown” and “slacker”; this week, “Sabotage” does a little bit of the same for Scully, Hitchcock, and even Gina, though with far less successful results. Chalk it up to writing that’s spread too thin to be totally satisfying. “Sabotage,” maybe more so than any other entry in the show’s second season, is packed, which at least means it’s never anything less than entertaining, even if it has a hard time keeping focus.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
