Brooklyn Nine Nine (2013 Fall Premieres)

Tuesdays on FOX

There’s a new show to schedule into your fall line up and it’s on Tuesdays at 8:30 PM and it will cuff you to the couch in stitches. Brooklyn Nine Nine has a near all star class that includes Andy Samberg (Lead, detective Jake Peralta), Andre Braugher (Captain Ray Holt), Terry Crews (Sgt. Terry Jefords), and Joe Lo Truglio (Det. Charles Boyle), we also have a few new faces that have not been around in the business for to long, who are JStephanie Beatriz (Det. Rosa), Melissa Fumero (Det. Amy), and Chelsea Peretti.

Considering we’ve only gotten a glimpse into the comedic cop sitcom it’s a bit early to tell how well the show will turn out, but the acting is above average for a pilot, and the jokes are delivered with a punch, and they touch on some pretty raw subjects for a show clocking in at 22 minutes on FOX.

Holt is ever successful in creating a well adjusted adult out of Jake. It would be like Cox getting JD to stop day dreaming. Continue reading

You know, that end of the social spectrum. Ironically, the show is about something completely different. It’s about the I.T. Department at a high end business with many levels to one building in London, England. And as you can imagine,  the three main characters are quite awkward, and two of them are a bit  on the antisocial side. Continue reading
