The casting on this comedy is perfect. There's nothing extraordinarily new - it's a standard sitcom, but done consistently enough that there's always a laugh to be had. That would be enough, but each of these archetypal characters do grow and deepen as the seasons go on.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is consistently clever and very funny. I think it's one of only a couple sitcoms on regular network TV that are worth watching. The other is The Big Bang Theory by the way.
This show gets better the less of a jerk Peralta becomes. Awesome show with a diverse cast that works so well together. Patton Oswalt's fire marshal as a recurring character makes me happy.
Just when I thought I would never find another comedy I enjoyed as much as the Office, I found Brooklyn 99. And it all starts with season 1. Even the very first episode is hilarious, setting the bar high and raising it with every new episode. It’s got a nice combo of personalities, and it pulls a comical side from sometimes dark material without making the show itself dark. Season 1 is also the beginning of many ongoing or recurring storylines - you really need to see it to get full enjoyment of the following seasons. It’s really, honestly funny, and I recommend it, especially because it’s ongoing! - @freckleface675 of the Hamilton Public Library's Teen Review Board
Brooklyn Nine-nine is a sitcom about a team of detectives in a police precinct in Brooklyn. All members of the cast are equally lovable and makes you attached to them within the first few episodes. Andy Samberg plays the lead character, Jake Peralta, who is hard to dislike, and has excellent chemistry with Andre Braugher, whose deadpan expressions makes you laugh every time. Although police officers have been featured thousands of times in all forms of comedy, Brooklyn Nine-nine takes that fact to their advantage and creates a fresh spin on the mannerisms. Moreover, the focus on the interactions between coworkers rather than the job itself attracts those who might not be a fan of typical cop shows. The show is flawed, however, when it comes to having intricate plots. The recurring jokes sometimes seem sloppy and consequences of one episode rarely transfers to the next. In spite of this, Brooklyn Nine-nine is a show worthy of binge-watching on a rainy day.

The 22 minutes Saturday-Live-like skits got boring fast when it comes to serious police business. Well, I liked "Jump Street" movies but have enough pointless juvenile sitcom with an obnoxious lead-actor. Bring me police comedies but with some intelligence or originality like Beverly Hills Cops, Naked Gun, Ride Along, 48 hours, Police Academy, Rush Hour, Lethal Weapon etc.
Surprisingly good show - some great characters starting with the chief - but the detective on the team that is styled like "larry/gary" from Parks and Rec does not work in this show. Talented cast.
Take 12-14 emotionally unstable and psychical damaged people, give some of the guns and some of them office equipment, and insanity is the only possible outcome. Hilarious hijinks, cringe worthy social exchanges, and an occasional arrest somehow creates a wonderful half hour that leaves you wanting more. If only we could see the real annoying people in our life as this funny we would all want to head to the office!
Interesting ensemble casting. Melissa Fumero is particularly charming/pretty; dynamic Terry Crews really lights up the screen.
Top quality, and hilarious. This is one of my current favorite shows!
