Cool cool cool cool, it’s the Nine Nine day. September 9 will forever be remembered as so. Brooklyn Nine-Nine might be ending soon, but it’s the show that deserves celebrations yearly and that will likely be the case as it’s one of the most binge-able shows to exist. When a show has too many amazing episodes to choose from, it’s the ultimate showcase of excellence, and that is most certainly

Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Final Season Starts Off Strong With “The Good Ones” and “The Lake House”

“The Good Ones and The Lake House” Spoilers Ahead Brooklyn Nine-Nine has always been the show to take stands because it mattered, and never because it was performative. This show didn’t choose diversity to check off boxes and get brownie points, but because celebrating humanity in a way that was authentic was always its priority.  And thereby, Brooklyn Nine-Nine couldn’t ignore the atrocities against Black men and women in 2020

Scene Breakdown: Jake Peralta’s Toast in Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s “Thanksgiving”

Jake Peralta‘s toast surely wasn’t on the Boyle bingo card. In Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Pilot episode, Jake understands the importance of wearing a tie in order to be a part of Holt’s work family at the precinct, but in the first season’s “Thanksgiving” episode, he’s still hesitant and extremely whiny about having to celebrate. And it makes sense because Rome wasn’t built a day, and character development, along with conquering one’s

Scene Breakdown: The Beginning of the Dream Team in Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Pilot

How are you all dealing with the fact that Brooklyn Nine-Nine is coming to an end this year? Me? Well, I’m completely in denial and pretending like it isn’t happening by doing a rewatch of the entire series to keep it with me for as long as possible. Because this is one of the few comedy series where it didn’t take me awhile to get into, I remember liking the

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Will Wrap After Season 8 and We’re Not Ready

I’ve written and deleted this too many times because it never felts right. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is set to end after its eighth season and I have way too many feelings about this.  This show is more than just a procedural comedy—it’s a celebration of humanity and inclusivity. For eight years, it has constantly gotten better. (Don’t even at me because we all know the last season is going to be
