TV Review: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 3.06, “Into the Woods”


“Like many sitcoms, Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s chief traits are the relationships between its characters. Whether it’s Boyle’s unfaltering loyalty to Jake, Jake’s odd couple professional bond with Holt, Holt’s mentor-mentee rapport with Amy, or Amy’s socially imbalanced encounters with everybody in the office, Brooklyn Nine-Nine best thrives when the writing creates a space where these characters can evolve through interactions both expected and unexpected: We can generally anticipate, for example, that from one episode to the next Boyle will offer DIY culinary and hygienic tips that fall so far off the beaten path they rouse disgust in his peers, but nobody would have ever predicted that Rosa would end an episode by breaking down in Holt’s office.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
