A review of tonight's Brooklyn Nine-Nine coming up just as soon as someone beats The Newlywed Game... After last week's episode focused entirely on Jake and Holt's time in Florida exile, part 2 of "Coral Palms" catches us up with the rest of the squad. The other detectives from the Nine-Nine have been through their own changes, like Boyle adopting a four-year-old son from Latvia named Nikolaj, but the biggest change by far was the arrival of Ken Marino (a The State reunion with Joe Lo Truglio!) as the latest interim captain, Jason Stenley. On the one hand, Stenley's incompetence in such a high-level job stretches even this show's boundaries of credibility, to the point where Boyle has to point out how little sense Stenley's promotion makes. On the other, Stenley's purpose in the episode is mainly to to get Santiago fighting with the rest of the squad over their acceptance »

"Thanksgiving" wasn't a single character tour de force like "Mother" last week, but it did an excellent job of spreading the wealth among all the characters, putting them into unexpected situations and seeing how they respond. For instance, I was, like Ben and Kent, very pleasantly surprised to see VP Doyle turn out to be so good at filling in for Selina while she was suffering the hideous physical side effects of her "debagging" procedure. The most amusing of these fish-out-of-water situations in present day was Dan realizing to his horror that he had become the Gary to Tom James, with that perfect shot of the two body men facing each other with trays in their hands. But that subplot also set up one of those occasional »
