Brooklyn Nine-Nine is an American police sitcom that airs on Fox. The single-camera series premiered on September 17, 2013. The premiere garnered 6.17 million viewers.[3]

It has won two Creative Arts Emmy Awards, and two Golden Globe Awards: one for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and one for Andy Samberg for Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy.[4] Andre Braugher has also been nominated for three consecutive Primetime Emmy Awards for his performance.

On May 12, 2017, the series was renewed for a fifth season.[5]

SynopsisEdit

Set in the fictional 99th Precinct of the New York City Police Department in Brooklyn, Brooklyn Nine-Nine follows a team of detectives headed by newly appointed Captain Ray Holt (Andre Braugher). Among the detectives is Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), who frequently tops the squad in collars despite his relaxed, carefree attitude, much to the annoyance of his more by-the-book colleague, Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero). Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) is a reliable but quirky detective whose emotions can sometimes go wild, as opposed to the stoic and mysterious Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz). The final two detectives, Michael Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker) and Norman "Norm" Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller), are older and often incompetent, although not without their usefulness. The detectives report to Sergeant Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews), a devoted family man who is initially afraid to go back to active police work for fear that he might die in the line of duty and thus leave his two children without a father. Rounding out the precinct is sarcastic civilian administrator Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti), who seems to value everything like dancing and her social life over work, and does anything to avoid her job.

Development and productionEdit

On May 8, 2013, Fox placed a thirteen-episode order for the single-camera ensemble comedy.[6][7][8] On October 18, 2013, the series was picked up for a full season of 22 episodes, and was later chosen to air with New Girl in a "special one-hour comedy event" as the Super Bowl XLVIII lead-out programs.[9]

The exterior view of the fictional 99th Precinct building, complete with numerous NYPD vehicles parked in front of it, is the actual 78th Precinct building at the corner of Sixth Avenue and Bergen Street, one block south of the Barclays Center and one block east of the Bergen Street station on the New York City Subway's 2 3 routes.[10]

ReceptionEdit

Rotten Tomatoes gave Season 1 a score of 88% based on 49 reviews. The consensus is: "Led by the surprisingly effective pairing of Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a charming, intelligently written take on the cop show format."[11] For Season 2, it received a score of 100% based on 11 reviews. That season's consensus is: "Brooklyn Nine-Nine's winning cast, appealing characters and wacky gags make it good comfort food."[12] Metacritic gives the first season of the show a weighted average rating of 70/100 based on 33 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[13]

The Huffington Post posted a list of "9 Reasons You Need To Start Watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine",[14] while Paste magazine celebrated "The 10 Best Moments from Brooklyn Nine-Nine's First Season" in 2014.[15]

Popular culture and tie-insEdit

During the 2013 Comedy Central Roast of James Franco, Bill Hader wore a white wig and pretended to be "The President of Hollywood." Hader joked to Andy Samberg, "Looking forward to your new show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Funny cops. You're always pushing the envelope, Andy. What's going to happen when you run out of funny crimes like graffiti and pickpockets? Can't wait to see episode 10 when Brooklyn 99 has to deal with a rape. 'Oh, I dropped the rape kit. Sporgie Dorg!'"[16] Hader would later go on to appear on the show's third season premiere, as Captain Seth Dozerman.

Chelsea Peretti, who plays Gina, told an interviewer, "I remember as a writer when actors would come in to Parks and Rec they were like, 'Oh my god this is the nicest set.' And I think similarly people feel the same with Brooklyn Nine-Nine."[17]

In September 2014, The A.V. Club featured an interview with property master Chris Call, who talked about his hectic job; for example: "On a show like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, everything is a gag — and a lot of them are sight gags — so there's a lot of different props that come up. If I was doing a show like Parenthood, it would be your standard everyday things that people have, like a cup of coffee or their dinner. Comedy — I've discovered especially — is filled with props. And on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, it seems to be even more so. It's such an ever-changing beast — comedy — because jokes change all the time."[18]

On January 3, 2015, Universal Partnerships & Licensing partnered with RED Games to launch a real-life version of the addictive puzzle game Kwazy Cupcakes! based on the very same app from Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The app is available on iOS and Android mobile devices.[19]

As it happens, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is actually pretty good. Not only does it have an excellent (and diverse!) ensemble cast, but it subverts stereotypes, while delivering the kind of silliness and absurdity that perhaps only "30 Rock" has executed so well. Arguably, the show is still finding [its] footing, so before the entire world starts watching without you, we have some convincing to do.
