From Emmy Award-winning writer/producers Dan Goor and Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation), and starring Emmy Award winners Andy Samberg (Saturday Night Live) and Andre Braugher (Men of a Certain Age, Homicide: Life on the Street), Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a new single-camera ensemble comedy about what happens when a talented, but carefree, detective gets a new captain with a lot to prove. Detective Jake Peralta (Samberg) is a good enough cop that he's never had to work that hard or follow the rules too closely. Perhaps because he has the best arrest record among his colleagues, he's been enabled - if not indulged - throughout his entire career. That is, until the precinct gets a new commanding officer, Captain Ray Holt (Braugher), who reminds this hotshot cop to respect the badge.
Winner of two 2014 Golden Globe Awards, Best Comedy, and Best Comedy Actor (Andy Samberg).

It's a show with so much kindness and genuine friendship. It makes me feel as happy as Great British Baking Show.
It has a lot of the great character development and friendship of Bones, without all the gore and violence that's hard to watch these days. Yes they're NYPD detectives, but it's light on the details.
The writers genuinely see them all as human beings, in the fullness and complexity of what that means - they have strengths and flaws and feel real. I appreciate the way gender roles are portrayed - the men are kind and comfortable with emotions (I especially love the Boyle-Peralta interactions), and the women are tough and competent without being cartoons or stock Wonder Woman tropes. It is so refreshing to be able to watch a show without tripping over gender stereotypes - every show should handle it this deftly.
The show also touches, in a gentle way, on some tough topics. Racism in policing, when Sgt Terry gets hassled when in plainclothes and has to decide what to do. Prison conditions, when Jake and Rosa are framed. Bisexuality when Rosa's parents aren't supportive at first when she comes out. I appreciate the light touch, as they deal with real issues, without being too fraught - we've all got enough on our plates right now, we need some escape, but also can't just pretend everything is fine. It's a really fine balance and I'm amazed at how well the writers navigate it.
Thanks, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, for keeping us sane during a hard time. I mean that very sincerely.
I really didn't think I'd like it at all, which is why it was going into the third season before I even started watching the first. It seemed like it would be some ditzy comedy with really dumb jokes, given what I'd known of Andy Samberg's "humor" beforehand (sorry, but his other stuff just hasn't been up my alley at all). Then, I started seeing funny gifsets/screenshots of OTHER characters (particularly Rosa and Gina) on the show on my social media feeds and decided to give it a shot…and I WASN'T DISAPPOINTED.
I've actually even had better luck getting friends into it than I have with any other show I've EVER liked and recommended. One friend was particularly adamant that he was GOING to binge on some other comedy series before even thinking of watching this show, but I told him rather soundly that he should watch this one first (I'm probably lucky he even still speaks to me after that, considering it was a lot of caps along the lines of "JUST LISTEN TO ME AND WATCH THE SHOW"). Next thing I knew, he texted me to inform me that he was going to go ahead and give it a shot to get me off his back. Then, after a few episodes, he admitted to liking it so far. Next thing I know, he then texted me to say that he'd gotten through ALL 3 SEASONS in, like, a week (which is REALLY fast for him).
This show has become my overall favorite comedy, which I never would've expected. It also helps that I find it highly amusing how many friends are freaked out by how much I'm like Rosa (and Gina, occasionally…which is quite the fabulously terrifying combo) when they start watching.
The show gives us a balanced blend of different types of humor: those who like silly, goofy jokes will find plenty of good stuff here, but those of us who prefer a more dry and clever wit will be very satisfied as well. There are a lot of the smart observations and that's-so-true insights that the best comedies offer. Best of all, the show is warm and genuinely sweet without being the least bit corny and cloying. The characters have their share of flaws and problems, but at its heart this is an infectiously happy, mood-boosting show filled with characters you root for despite their amusing shortcomings.
I'd very highly recommend it, though be forewarned that the first few episodes don't really (in my opinion) represent the show at its best!

With 22 episodes & deleted scenes, there's plenty to keep the most avid comedy fan happy.
This show is great, crammed with gags both verbal and visual. A talented cast does full justice to sparkling scripts. Most exuberant of all is Andy Samberg as Jake Peralta, hilarious as he never ceases to wind colleagues up. Scenes between him and Andre Braugher as Holt are a particular pleasure, the latter adept at deadpan delivery. (Here is a character of special interest - gay but in no way camp, one who has no doubt overcome much prejudice en route to the top. Will Jake discover he has at last met his match?)
Twenty-two episodes. Check out the deleted scenes, they also very funny.
Best news of all? There are many more seasons to enjoy.
When this was being shown on E4 it was the highlight of my viewing week and every episode in this first season delivered. Of recent American sitcoms that have crossed the pond, this an Parks and Recreation are the most entertaining.
andy samberg is the funny guy off saturday night live and the guy who does the lonely island song parodies.
as with most tv shows, the first series is the best
