"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" continues to find nuggets of interesting back-story and growth for our favorite lovable, dysfunctional police squad. What is tonight's theme?
Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) is about to get thrown out of his apartment, which is going co-op and he can't afford to buy it (for $430,000, hello, NYC) because he's drowning in debt. And we learn that he and Gina (Chelsea Peretti) grew up together. Because there are only a few dozen people in Brooklyn. But she loves his apartment too ... it was his Nana's place and they grew up there together as kids, watching "House Party." Awww.
After Gina gives him the low-down on his nonexistent finances, they visit a loan shark who will loan money to anyone, for a steep price, and Peralta borrows $20,000 to make a down payment. Not smart. Unfortunately for him, the co-op board is still throwing him out, and he needs »
Boyle and Peralta (Andy Samberg) go undercover as tourists to nab a bad guy. And Boyle is also going "full Boyle" intensity on his relationship with Vivi. Peralta explains to him that he's going to "blow this beyond repair." As Boyle says, he's been directing all his emotions unsuccessfully at Diaz, so now, he's out of control and enlists Jake to help him stay cool. Jake confiscates his phone and suggests they go on a double date so that he can be there keep Boyle under control. Sure, that'll work.
Turns out Bernice, Vivian's friend for the double date, is beautiful and loves the Nets and "Die Hard," so Jake ends up all smitten too, and everything he throws at Boyle to reduce »
If you haven’t heard about “Dumb Starbucks” it was a California “art gallery” that completely duplicated the look of a Starbucks, except it added “Dumb” to the Starbucks logo. It turns out the shop was a stunt by Comedy Central show Nathan for You, which parodies business improvement reality shows. I laughed when I saw it on the news, I can’t wait to see the episode.
Tom Cavanagh has joined the cast of the CW’s Flash pilot. He’ll play a physicist at S.T.A.R. labs named Harrison Wells. As far as I can find, there isn’t a DC Comics character with that name to hint as his future.

It's a double-dose this week of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", fans. One after the Super Bowl, and now another, celebrating Captain Holt's (Andre Braugher) birthday. And we're finally meeting his husband, Kevin Cozner (Marc Evan Jackson.)
Happy Birthday Captain Holt!
Kevin invites the entire precinct to Holt's birthday party, and while Holt is happy they're all coming, he tells Peralta (Andy Samberg) that he doesn't believe Kevin is going to like him. Bad move. Peralta's main mission is to make sure Kevin likes him. Terry (Terry Crews) gives them some basic pointers for grown-up parties, since it's pretty clear none of them are emotionally capable of handling anything civilized. Which is why we like this show.
Kevin heads the Classics Department at Columbia, leaving Peralta with absolutely nothing in common with him, since the classics he knows are Zeppelin and Hendrix (as he tells Kevin.) The whole group gets "be appropriate" assignments »
