Brooklyn Nine-Nine Review

The world needs more Terry Crews in their lives and this show delivers, not in a large dose but enough to keep your appetite sated. The show stars Andy Samberg as Jake Perelta, a very talented NYPD detective in Brooklyn, with the only problem being his immature nature and lack of respect for authority. The rest of the team are made up of a highly intimidating and short tempered Rosa Diaz, played by Stephanie Beatriz, Melissa Fumero who plays Amy Santiago, a career detective wanting to work her way up the force by doing a great job and sucking up as much as possible, Joe Lo Truglio plays Charles Boyle the clumsy/awkward detective and Pereltas best friend, and of course Terry Crews who acts as their sergeant.

The show starts with the precinct getting a new Captain played by the excellent Andre Braugher, as the no-nonsense stone faced Captain Ray Holt who instantly collides with Jake Perelta. We also find out Perelta and Santiago have a bet on who can catch the most criminals in the year. Most episodes follow a combination of these detectives teaming up on cases, usually not going as smoothly as they could do usually leading to hilarious consequences. The team also have Chelsea Peretti as Gina Linetti, Holt's personal assistant, and two bungling detectives played by Dirk Blocker as Hitchcock and Joel McKinnon Miller as Scully. 

The first season is 22 episodes long and at no point does it tire all grow dull. All episodes are well written and very well acted by every one involved. And as I said before, it has Terry Crews in it so what else could you want? My final rating is 8/10; it is a very amusing and interesting show with great characters, if there is one down side to the show it is quite predictable with no real surprises but it is still a solid show, and well worth a watch if your on Netflix.
