Brooklyn Nine-Nine is an American action comedy television series that airs on Fox. Set in the fictional 99th Precinct of the New York City Police Department in Brooklyn, the single-camera series follows a precinct team of detectives and a newly appointed captain. It premiered on September 17, 2013, as part of the 2013–14 American television season. The series' premiere garnered 6.17 million viewers.[1]

It won two Golden Globe Awards in 2014: one for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and one for Andy Samberg for Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy.[2] On March 7, 2014, the series was renewed for a second season, which premiered on September 28, 2014.[3]

On January 17, 2015, the series was renewed for a third season.[4][5]

Development and production[edit]

On May 8, 2013, Fox placed a thirteen-episode order for the single-camera ensemble comedy.[9][10][11] On October 18, 2013, the series was picked up for a full season of 22 episodes, and was later chosen to air with New Girl in a "special one-hour comedy event" as the Super Bowl XLVIII lead-out programs.[12]

The exterior view of the fictional 99th Precinct building, complete with numerous NYPD vehicles parked in front of it, is the actual 78th Precinct building at the corner of 6 Ave and Bergen St., one block south of the Barclays Center and one block east of the Bergen Street (IRT Eastern Parkway Line) stop on the New York City Subway.[13]

Reception[edit]

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has received positive reviews from critics. As of December 2014, Rotten Tomatoes gave Season 1 a score of 88% based on 49 reviews, with the consensus, "Led by the surprisingly effective pairing of Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a charming, intelligently written take on the cop show format"[14] and, about Season 2, a score of 100% based on 49 reviews, with the consensus, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine's winning cast, appealing characters and wacky gags make it good comfort food."[15] Metacritic gives the show a weighted average rating of 70/100, based on 33 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[16]

The Huffington Post posted a list of "9 Reasons You Need To Start Watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine",[17] while Paste magazine celebrated "The 10 Best Moments from Brooklyn Nine-Nine's First Season" in 2014.[18]

In popular culture[edit]

During the 2013 Comedy Central Roast of James Franco, Bill Hader roasted some of the other participants. Hader wore a white wig and pretended to be "The President of Hollywood." Hader joked to Andy Samberg, "Looking forward to your new show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Funny cops. You're always pushing the envelope, Andy. What's going to happen when you run out of funny crimes like graffiti and pickpockets? Can't wait to see episode 10 when Brooklyn 99 has to deal with a rape. 'Oh, I dropped the rape kit. Sporgie Dorg!'"[19]

Chelsea Peretti, who plays Gina, told an interviewer, "I remember as a writer when actors would come in to Parks and Rec they were like, 'Oh my god this is the nicest set.' And I think similarly people feel the same with Brooklyn Nine-Nine."[20]

In September 2014, The AV Club featured an interview with property master Chris Call, who talked about his hectic job; for example: "On a show like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, everything is a gag — and a lot of them are sight gags — so there's a lot of different props that come up. If I was doing a show like Parenthood, it would be your standard everyday things that people have, like a cup of coffee or their dinner. Comedy — I've discovered especially — is filled with props. And on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, it seems to be even more so. It's such an ever-changing beast — comedy — because jokes change all the time."[21]

David Grossman, a journalist at The New Republic has argued that the show is politically conservative, writing, "Openly [conservative] comedies are rare on TV, but those that do lean right tend not to pull any punches." He offers Tim Allen's Last Man Standing and Greg Gutfeld's Red Eye as examples, then continues, "These shows have a new companion in Brooklyn Nine-Nine...starring Andy Samberg as the best detective in Brooklyn... Samberg plays Jake Peralta, a detective who can figure out anything except 'how to grow up.' It's easy to miss a sitcom's conservatism when the jokes are good, but Brooklyn Nine-Nine is dead-set on maintaining the shiny-on-the-surface, gross-on-the-inside legacy" of the "era" of Michael Bloomberg and Raymond Kelly. "But the ultra-conservative NYPD is an odd setting for a sitcom about scrappy underdogs."[22]

Tie-ins[edit]

On January 3, 2015, Universal Partnerships & Licensing partnered with RED Games to launch a real-life version of the addictive puzzle game Kwazy Cupcakes! based on the very same app from Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The app is available on iOS and Android mobile devices.[23]

As it happens, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is actually pretty good. Not only does it have an excellent (and diverse!) ensemble cast, but it subverts stereotypes, while delivering the kind of silliness and absurdity that perhaps only "30 Rock" has executed so well. Arguably, the show is still finding [its] footing, so before the entire world starts watching without you, we have some convincing to do.
