'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': The highs and lows of season 1

26 March 2014 7:09 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Brooklyn Nine-Nine capped off a pretty great first season with a pretty great finale — one that managed to reaffirm everything that already works about the show while setting up a few new, intriguing possibilities for season 2.

Here’s where things stand as the episode draws to a close: Peralta’s leaving the precinct for six months for a dangerous undercover mission. (One that, much to Jake’s disappointment, doesn’t involve a cool fake identity.) He’s also finally come clean to Santiago about his feelings for her — not with some kind of bombastic grand gesture, but with an appropriately low-key confession. »

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine's' Chelsea Peretti on the Big Season Finale Surprise

25 March 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Brooklyn Nine-Nine's season finale.] Fox's Brooklyn Nine-Nine delivered a major twist during Tuesday's season finale. The freshman cop comedy from Parks and Recreation's Mike Schur and Dan Goor used Detective Jake Peralta's (Andy Samberg) investigation into one of the department's superiors to explore his growing feelings for friend and colleague Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero). The episode's biggest reveal came not when Jake professed his feelings for Amy, but when Detective Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio), reeling from being dumped by his fiance, Vivian (Marilu Henner), wound up in bed with the precinct's eccentric

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' co-creator Mike Schur looks back on season 1

25 March 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Back in the summer, I sat down with "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" creators Dan Goor and Mike Schur to talk about the creative challenges that come with the launch of any new comedy. In particular, we discussed — based on their experience on "Parks and Recreation," and Schur's on "The Office" — the process of fine-tuning characters from the broad sketches they are in a pilot to ones who best match the actors who play them, and best fit into the larger world. It was a very good discussion, and one that played out over the course of the first "Brooklyn" season. There were some promising elements early on — Andre Braugher's deadpan, Terry Crews' innate Terry Crews-iness — but various balances had to be struck, so that Andy Samberg's Jake Peralta could be immature without seeming like a 12-year-old with a badge, or so that Melissa Fumero's Amy Santiago could »

Ivan Reitman Confirms Ghostbusters 3

19 March 2014 4:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When the incredibly sad news of the death of Harold Ramis swept around the world, many fans responded with heart-felt heartbreak, followed by the assumption that the rumoured Ghostbusters 3 project would also be laid to rest. A Ghostbusters film without Egon would surely be like an Ectomobile with one flat tyre – sure, you can drive it, but ultimately, you’re going to damage your vehicle.

It was quite a surprise, then, when Ivan Reitman reached out to Deadline to set the record straight after years of speculation – officially confirming the production, and explaining why he no longer plans to direct it:

“There has been all kinds of stuff, unofficially written about Ghostbusters. I’ve been reading things online for about four years - speculation on who’s writing, what they’re writing, who’s in it, who we will use, and who’s directing. We’d decided not to »

Akiva Schaffer to Direct Brooklyn Nine-nine Finale

21 February 2014 1:45 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fox has one of the season's best surprises in their line-up with the Golden Globe-winning comedy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine.  If you haven't been watching, the cop comedy series takes place in the title precinct and stars Andy Samberg as the slovenly and sarcastic Detective Jake Peralta.  Samberg is obviously a comedy veteran, but the strength of the show comes in its supporting cast, which features Terry Crews, Joe Lo Truglio, Chelsea Peretti, Stephanie Beatriz and Andre Braugher.  For the show's first season finale, Samberg's "The Lonely Island" partner Akiva Schaffer will come on board to direct.  Hit the jump for more. As THR reports, Schaffer will step behind the camera for the Brooklyn Nine-Nine season finale.  Production on the finale is set to begin next week, with the final show of the season airing on March 25th.  Schaffer is following in fellow "The Lonely Island" member  Jorma Taccone's footsteps; he »

Movie Review - About Last Night (2014)

18 February 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

About Last Night, 2014.

Directed by Steve Pink.

Starring Kevin Hart, Regina Hall, Michael Ealy, Joy Bryant, Christopher McDonald, Adam Rodgiguez, Joe Lo Truglio and Paula Patton.

Synopsis:

Follow two couples as they journey from the bar to the bedroom and are eventually put to the test in the real world.

I've always had a rocky relationship with American comedies, especially rom-coms.  More times than not they're the absolute bottom of the barrel, and even if they're above average they work best as something to catch on Netflix or Redbox.  Silver Linings Playbook is the only one I've seen in recent memory that I felt warranted a visit to the local cinema, so when I saw the trailer to About Last Night I rolled my eyes.  Kevin Hart is a funny guy but he tends to pick some iffy projects, and Ride Along was fresh in my memory which was not a good movie for me. »

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Charles goes 'Full Boyle' on Marilu Henner

11 February 2014 7:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

It's Valentine's week on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) is smitten. Smitten with Professor Vivian (Marilu Henner)! And that right there is awesome.

Full Boyle

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 »

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Captain Holt is the funny one in his marriage

4 February 2014 7:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

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 »

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Adam Sandler heckles Andy Samberg and Joe Theismann breaks his other leg

2 February 2014 9:07 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Man, like we needed more football last night. But, dear "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" you get major points for Terry Crews touchdown dancing to "The Karate Kid's" "You're the Best Around" (seriously, someone Google Joe Esposito and find out what he's up to) playing in the background during the episode opener.

Cleaning House

The precinct is in need of some shaping up, and Terry and Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) are going to make some changes to get things moving more productively. 

They're so cute when they're optimistic.

Nothing they do actually creates any positive change. They make Diaz mad, thus blocking people from using the bathroom, give Gina a mirror to keep her busy with her own reflection, and reshuffle the location of the toaster and some of the desks in the department. The entire group confronts Holt and Terry to knock it off. Fairly pointless storyline, but we did get »

Stephanie Beatriz on Playing the Fierce Rosa Diaz on 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' Joining an Ensemble and Wearing Glasses to the Golden Globes

31 January 2014 1:52 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Over 14 episodes, with a 15th set to air in a prime post-Super Bowl slot this Sunday, police department comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" has grown into one the season's strongest new shows. Earlier this month, the freshman series even walked away with a Golden Globe for Best TV Series, Comedy/Musical, besting the likes of "Big Bang Theory," "Girls" and "Modern Family," as well as fellow Michael Schur creation "Parks & Recreation." And while Andy Samberg also snagged a statuette for his performance as gifted cop and terminal manchild Jake Peralta, what's made the series come together is the depth of talent of its ensemble, from Andre Braugher as the deadpan Capt. Ray Holt to Joe Lo Truglio's tyrannized Det. Charles Boyle to Stephanie Beatriz's perpetually scowling Det. Rosa Diaz. Beatriz has emerged as a standout even in a cast crowded with very funny people, her Diaz a leather jacketed tough »

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': 'The Ebony Falcon' Terry is back after he puts his babies to bed

21 January 2014 6:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

I've been thinking a lot about "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and tonight's episode solidified none of my musings. No more #Peraltiago references (I didn't make that up. It's a real thing) or #Boyliaz (that I did make up, but I doubt will catch on.) As such, we're reminded this is a comedy, not  a romance. 

Jake (Andy Samberg) and Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio, who just keeps getting better) are tracking a black market ring, centered at a gym with gigantic ex-con Brandon as the leader. And with gym rat Terry "The Ebony Falcon" (Terry Crews) back in the field, they use his brawn as the "gymfiltrator."

However, after seeing Terry putting his twins (Cagney and Lacey) to bed, they get a little freaked out that something may actually end up happening to him in the field. But Terry wants it. All seemingly goes well until Terry slips up with a simple lie to the ex-con Brandon, »

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' after the Globes: Is it earning that 'Best Comedy' trophy?

14 January 2014 6:00 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

See the face newly-crowned Golden Globe winner Andy Samberg is pulling in this picture — full-on grimace, crazy eyes, neck vein that might pop at any second? It’s a mug that screams “mugging,” even without the benefit of motion or sound — and it’s also a nice encapsulation of why more than one friend has told me that they’ve decided Brooklyn Nine-Nine isn’t for them, even without laying eyes on a single episode. Their objections generally boil down to something like this: “I might be able to get into that show… if it didn’t star Andy Samberg. »

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Craig Robinson dresses Andy Samberg in 'Pontiac Bandit'

7 January 2014 8:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Welcome back, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" fans... old and new. Are you new to the show since its Golden Globe nominations? We welcome you, to one of the best comedies of the year. Join us.

Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) is back! He took a bullet for the precinct, and he's back! And in a "butt cast." Pants don't fit over his butt cast, so he's borrowed his mom's legwarmers, and lucky for him, and us, he's fully mobile on a scooter with two "reacher-grabbers." However, a bullet didn't make Boyle any less annoying. He's bothering everyone, but they all feel guilty about it since, yes, he took a bullet for them. They all retreat to the evidence room to hide instead of asking him to go home. 

Craig Robinson, who recently got a green light at NBC for a new comedy, is guest starring as Doug Judy, pulled in by Rosa (Stephanie Beatriz »
