it is okay
3 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't say that I didn't like this show it really is OK. That is the problem it is just OK. I watch so many shows I know it may seem crazy to but I read, work, and watch TV (when i say TV i do include movies in that) so I must absolutely love the TV show or like at least quite a bit. Brooklyn 9 9 does not fall in that protocol. I do see that it appears to be a popular show. I got the DVD from Netflix the first season came with 7 or 8 shows. This was the last episode on the disc which is why I am reviewing it all under this episodes title. I don't get in depth with my reviews as I always like to mention.

It is not that funny. It has funny moments but not enough of them. The lead character's idiocy is sorta cute. If he had more interesting characters surrounding him maybe it would work. The brown nosing female cop is just annoying. It seems inevitable at some point that they will end up dating each, other than that I don't see the point in having her around. She is not funny. The funny looking so called hard female cop over acts so badly I just want to punch her in the face every time she is in a scene. It could be that she is purposely overacting as part of the script but it is not at all helping, not for me. The little guy I do like him. If it was him and the lead I could see that. The old cop Jesus just do away with him he is gross. It is not funny, it is sad. Then there is Terry Crews I just don't like him. I don't like him at all, in anything. It is something about him, he can't act. He is always overacting. He is not funny he is creepy, and no matter what he is in he is the exact same character. The captain he is okay, I guess. Thus ends my journey with this show. It is no Modern Family, New Girl, Certainly no Big Bang...Those are the types of comedies I like.
