Brooklyn Nine-Nine Boyles Hunch 303-03

One of the many, many things I love about Brooklyn Nine-Nine is the way they make their silly, incredibly funny, and often immature antics into a 99% believable (albeit short) police procedural. Okay, so I’m not an expert on how detectives solve crimes. I’m sure it’s not as entertaining as Brooklyn Nine-Nine, or even Law & Order. But despite the ridiculousness wrapped in puns wrapped in awesomeness, the crew at 99 still solve cases, and show the evidence used. The way the characters play off each other is perfect chemistry. Tonight’s episode of “Boyle’s Hunch” highlights the buddy cop dynamic of Peralta and Boyle (Andy Samberg and Joe Lo Truglio).

Spoilers below.

Last week‘s Brooklyn Nine-Nine came back strong for their 3rd season. Holt (Andre Braugher) and the 99th Precinct are still apart, but that doesn’t mean the laughs have to stop. Jake and Amy (Andy Samberg and Melissa Fumero) decided to keep things casual (you know-after the kiss), with Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) almost on to them, until Jake makes up an imaginary gym floozy. Things escalate much further. Wunch (guest star Kyra Sedgwick) delights in the PR position torture of Holt. He ends up in a pigeon costume, yet still dignified. At least he has Gina (Chelsea Peretti). Bill Hader guested last week as the “New Captain,” but quickly died. Does not take a rocket scientist to figure out who “The Funeral” of this week is for. And that is what this episode is about – comedy against a funeral backdrop. Fun!

A couple of spoilers below. Proceed with caution!

The 99th Precinct shenanigans are back! Brooklyn Nine-Nine begins its 3rd hilariously hysterical season at the exact moment season 2 ended – with the elevator door opening. The gang was awaiting their new captain. That’s right. Madeline Wunch (guest star Kyra Sedgwick) finally got Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) into her witchy clutches, in the guise of a PR promotion. Gina (Chelsea Peretti) went with him (noooooo!!!!!). Peralta and Diaz (Andy Samberg and Melissa Fumero) finally kissed (yayyyyy!!!!).

Possible spoilers of tonight’s episode – proceed with caution below.

Brooklyn Nine Nine Season 3 Cast

The funniest show on television will soon arrive. Brooklyn Nine-Nine has some new promos called, “New Captain” and “brand New Boss.” At the end of last season, Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) tried to get out of the PR promotion, given to him by Madeline Wuntch (guest star Kyra Sedgwick), but he was unable to, and had to leave. Don’t worry. I’m sure that’s not the last we’ve seen of Captain Holt. The reason I’m sure is because he’s in the promo vdeos.

Check out the season 3 promos, plus Hitchcock and Scully’s (Dirk Blocker & Joel McKinnon Miller) detective skills tips below.

Another finale is upon us! I am going to miss the belly laughs of this delightful little comedy.

The morning brief has Peralta (Andy Samberg) and Santiago (Melissa Fumero) leading the case of an identity thief, who made off with over 100,000 social security numbers, ready to sell to China. The two of them cannot get over the awkwardness of how much they like each other – resorting to insults (“weird elbows”). The case forces them to get reeeally close though. The ending for the episode for them is satisfying.

What a fantastic episode! Brooklyn Nine-Nine was a clear winner this week.The one-liners had me cackling very two minutes. Jake (Andy Samberg) and Boyle (Jo Lo Truglio) were on the DeAngelo case – four mob guys stole 21 million dollars. They went to prison, but the money was never found. They are all out of jail, and now they are dying one at a a time. Jake believes the killer will lead them to the money. Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) believes that his arch nemesis, Madeline Wuntch (guest star Kyra Sedgewick), is looking for him to fail. It is quite surprising (and kinda sad) when we find out her ulterior motive.

Last week’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine was hilarious even without my Gina (Chelsea Peretti) having a major role. Jake (Andy Samberg) broke bones during a chase running over cars, when he fell into a car via sunroof. He was forced to take time off to heal, but even then… he still didn’t listen. He tricked Charles (Joe Lo Truglio) into a fake vacation. Terry (Terry Crews) had to come to Atlantic City to yell at him (and help him).

Brooklyn Nine-Nine returns after a one-month hiatus to give us four more belly laugh episodes, before its in-between seasons vacation.

Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) and Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz) were the laugh stars of this episode. The second clip below highlights that. They could not avoid the inevitable double date dinner with their significant others, given that Rosa is dating Holt’s nephew (Nick Cannon) and the Captain’s husband Kevin (Kevin Cozner), is a pleasant normal person. I could swear Rosa and Holt are related by their socially awkward and humorless mannerisms.

Holt (after Rosa leaves the table because of unbearable small talk): “Whew. Good. Take a breather. No one needs to know you have sisters.” Good one, Captain Holt. Deadpan humor is the best.

Charles: “The muggings were confined to Cabot St. They began over two months ago.”
Gina: “Just like this briefing did. Please go to charisma class.”

Sorry. Those were the very first two lines of the episode 2.19 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I love that girl. Gina (Chelsea Peretti) is the best character on a show filled with best characters. There is no one who takes a chance on this show that does not love it. If you are not watching it, my question is… why are you trying to destroy your own happiness?
