A Review of This Week Brooklyn Nine-Nine "A story of two bandits" as soon as I talk to Bruce Banner about people's jerseys and pants …
Of Nine -Neun The two annual traditions of Halloween episodes tend to have a higher variance because they depend so much on how well the raid is written and how startling the result is. While Pontiac Bandit episodes tend to turn around who the police officer will disapprove of Jake's friendship with Doug Judy they are so fundamentally concerned about the chemistry between Andy Samberg and Craig Robinson. essentially plotsicher. Put the two boys together in a room, maybe sing them a bit (or put on rasta wigs here), and it'll be fun, regardless of the other details.
"A story of two bandits," However, the idea of being very aware that the show has already gone five times in this direction and that it might be wise to mix things up a bit in the opening scene, seems to be very clear Realizes Jake has begun to confuse the details of each and every Judy adventure, following an implausible (and wise short) turn in which Judy seems dead (but pretended not to be killed by a vindictive arms dealer ), we get the more important change of story: the introduction of Doug's sister, Trudy Judy played by Nicole Byer. Byer was a few weeks ago on The Good Place one such joy, essentially as an angel who was unable to be less friendly and optimistic.The role of Trudy not only allowed many rhymes, but also aroused that expectation by revealing that she did not Actually, she's a more ruthless criminal thinker than her brother, and has played Doug, Jake, and the rightfully suspicious Terry Terry. all the time. It's a funny twist, and the final scenes in which we see Trudy in her worst case make me hope that this is not Byer's last appearance on the show.
The B story about firefighters trying to make Shaws their new Hangout. Meanwhile, the NYPD / FDNY rivalry that has been around for quite some time has not revived. I was hoping to see Patton Oswalt return as Fire Marshal Boone (last seen in season one), but Oswalt is a busy guy and Rob Riggle made this new crew a perfectly plausible and disgusting leader. Actors who are drunk and / or playing high, especially in the length required here for the cops vs. firefighters drinking contest, can really feel lenient if it is not very funny. Fortunately, these actors (especially Melissa Fumero) have proven their drunken bonafides in the past. It was a pleasure to see the many different stages of Amy 's intoxication (including the proposal that Four-Drink Amy's comebacks at the age of #MeToo must retire) to the usually sharp time to see and reserve Rosa be so loud and unaware what happens, and everything else. (Bonus points for making all the vomiting easy from the camera.) As with the recurrent appearances of the Pontiac Bandit, Captain Holt realizes that he is putting his own needs above the squad (this second episode of this season did something similar), but when it comes down to it that Andre Braugher defiantly says "Charbonnay" again and again, who can complain?
Some Other Thoughts:
* Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller cast regulars for a long time, and with Chelsea Peretti's departure, they eventually appear in the first title sequence, much like Jim O & # 39; Heir and Retta, which went to Rashida Jones and Rashida Jones to Parks and Rec credits Rob Lowe went. Gina's dance set a high bar for Hitchcock and Scully to clear, but the image of them awakening on the couch is funny and very characteristic. Before the series started, Mike Schur and Dan Goor told me that they specifically incorporated moments into the pilot script that they knew could be used for any actor's performance in the title sequence. However, this piece was shot specifically for the revised credits. The close-up of the other six regulars walking side by side involved some digital manipulation to remove Peretti from an existing version when the pilot was made.
* It's no coincidence that the first episode aired After Gina's departure, there were two plots and not three of the show. This show has always made it better to juggle two stories per episode, but usually went with three in an attempt to give each one in the ensemble something. Since Gina is gone and Hitch and Scully only have one or two jokes a week (like Hitchcock's drinking habits that make him the only coherent person when Holt returns to the bar), it should be much easier to keep things in balance Forward.
* Since Nine-Nine and Good Place share a lot of creative DNA, it's not surprising that so many actors were guest performers on both sides. The performer best used in both series is Marc Evan Jackson, but that seems almost unfair, as he has played Kevin so often here and practically acts as a regular player there as Shawn. Byer is the best of the people who only made one episode tonight. Here is the full list of overlaps on IMDb's general population search, so I'm open to alternative suggestions ̵
