The One With The Pontiac Bandit...
13 January 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really love this episode. It's so funny. It's one of my all-time favorite episodes from this series. Even to this day, with the amount of episodes they've aired. It's just so good.

In this episode, Jake convinces Rosa to make a deal with a criminal, so they can catch the Pontiac Bandit. Rosa is hesitant, but eventually agrees to the deal. But this doesn't go so well. The criminal ends up double-crossing them. Meanwhile, Boyle returns to the Nine- Nine, and it is very awkward, and Captain Holt tries to give away two adorable puppies.

Special guest star: Craig Robinson.

Best part of the episode: Captain Holt.

Overall, I give this episode a 9 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Amazing.
