Those of us who miss the cop-based comedy will be well served with Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The show features Andre Braugher (Homicide) as the new captain to a bunch of rather unusual detectives that include Peralta, who great at his job but still a little boy, and Santiago, a woman who always feels she has to prove herself. Brooklyn Nine-Nine will air Tuesdays at 8:30 on CITY. This show is going to be a hit.
Key to a good investigation as it is to a good TV comedy is the back up. Here it includes a Sergeant who would like nothing more to stay off the streets so as to not get hurt, a detective more prone to bodily harm than Wile E Coyote who has the hots for a very angry and assertive colleague.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine mixes both precinct scenes like in Barney Miller and street scenes like any regular cop show. This allows for a variety of situations and jokes. The confrontation in the grocery store in the first episode is really funny.
I am looking forward to the Brooklyn Nine-Nine DVD set just to see the bloopers.
