Title: Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Andy Samberg is hot)
Post by: anais.butterfly on November 18, 2013, 06:24:50 PM
(Because I am a woman, I had to add that last part :P )

Anyway, I LOVE this show, and I think it should have it's own thread.


I am re-watching the episode The Slump. There is a scene where Holt's secretary dances, and I CRACK UP every time! Gina, the secretary, is my favorite character.

You?

I was pretty shocked at how much I like it. Andre Braugher is my favorite. The episode where they are all talking about how to read him was fantastic.

Especially when the flashback showed Scully getting reemed and then Scully says "that guys is impossible to read."

The Halloween episode Samberg v Braugher was also awesome.

I am very disappointed with youtube. I can not find the absolute funniest scene from last night's Brooklyn nine-nine

I'm watching the ep right now. A friend of mine got me hooked on this. Interestingly, I have the complete opposite reaction that you do - Gina drives me insane. I'm amused by Terry and Boyle. Incredibly funny show, though. I was surprised by how much I liked it, given that Andy Samberg is definitely not my usual cup of tea.

I thought The Bet was an awesome episode. I like that Jake and Amy enjoyed each other for who they are and that kind of started a spark....I mean, I fear it might be like Ross/Rachel, but at the same time, it was so organic...I guess what I am saying is that I would like to have a date like that. It was cute. AND...when Amy figured out the key to catching nuts in her mouth was volume....OMG, I was attracted to her. I want to be that organically cute on a date one day.

I enjoyed it too, but I kind of wish they hadn't gone down the road of a potential romance between Peralta and Santiago. I'd really like to see a show keep its characters friendly work colleagues for its entire run and never try to pair them up. Kind of like the dynamic between Leslie and Ron on Parks and Rec. Still! A very funny episode nonetheless, as I've come to expect from this show.

I like it when they don't go down the obvious romance route, but there are already too many characters. I don't want another :)

Although PLEASE bring back the Pontiac Bandit!

Who said anything about more characters? Just keep the ones they have and let them loose in their workplace dynamics. :-)

But yes, the Pontiac Bandit HAS to come back. Sweet fancy Moses, that man is funny. He was the only thing I enjoyed in the last few seasons of The Office. He was HYSTERICAL here.

Really enjoy the show, and they've managed to add so much depth to the characters that even after only half a season they feel fully rounded.

Enlisted does a similar thing, though it's more Stripes than anything else.  People who haven't seen that really should, as it's great.

They need to show the good parts during the commercials then. I have laughed once and rolled my eyes A LOT.

This is probably the first ep in a while that didn't grab me as hard. The Vulture seems a bit one-note to me. The Adam Sandler cameo was, however, surprisingly funny. "What part does Kevin James play?"

Andy Samberg is best when he's tempered by another cast member, rather than taking over the whole show.  The recent episode used him well, having all of the cast have basically the same amount of screen time.  The only cast member I'm not totally on board with is Gina - she's too cartoonish and without a whole lot of depth.  They've done great work to round out the other members, but she's really only a wacky one-liner machine.

I think Gina is one of the stronger females on the show. Also, she has more depth than Rosa (and she is cooler, funnier, and stronger (at least in her ability to not care about anything) than Rosa.

My example of depth for Gina is from the episode when her house got broken into. She was vulnerable, but in her own adorable way.


I want to be more like Gina in my real life. Actually....take Amy's professionalism and adoration for a father figure, Rosa's desire to beat the shit out of everyone, and Gina's one-liners and self confidence....and you have a woman I would aspire to be.


I watch this show too much.

Something about Rosa's evilly delighted laugh cracks me up. I was losing it watching her react to Gina (who I also found more tolerable than usual in this episode). "Wine Drink" also killed me. Also I don't know why, but the Hitchcock's Shirt running gag is nowhere near getting old for me. So funny! Boyle's umami tryst I'm still trying to choose a reaction to.

I'm definitely in the Anti-Gina camp.  Granted her character is supposed to be irritating, but still not a fan of Peretti in anything I've seen her in.

I actually really enjoy Rosa's character, but mainly when it's not overdone.

Overall I really enjoy the show far more than I expected to based on the commercials before the show started.

Post by: mrbasehart on March 14, 2014, 02:57:37 PM
They've done some really nice work in fleshing out Rosa, so she's not as one-dimensional as Gina is.  Gina can be funny, but she's a one-liner machine, not a character.  I think they've under-served her because Chelsea Perretti is naturally funny.
Title: Re: Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Andy Samberg is hot)
Post by: doggans on March 14, 2014, 04:38:06 PM
I like Chelsea Perretti, and Gina can be entertaining...but she's kind of a retread of Beth from NewsRadio.

On the other hand, I love Captain Holt, who is quite fleshed-out when he so easily could have been a retread of every "stiff emotionless authority figure" from every humorous law enforcement show.

Just finished the new episode. Loved fat Terry. The makeup was actually pretty good on him; for a moment I wasn't sure if it was Crews or if they'd just hired a fat guy who kinda looked like him. Also, Santiago in a tank top. Daaaaaaaaang.
I was pretty impressed with the storyline for her, actually. Smoking is such a bugaboo in Hollywood these days that to feature it in an episode of a tv show at all seemed unique. Don't get me wrong, I'm not defending smoking. :) I just like seeing something different. Very funny overall!

It was Terry in fat make up.  You know, I REALLY hope Terry ends up in a Marvel movie somewhere.  The guy is built like a superhero and has fantastic comedic chops that would serve him well with the Marvel feel.  Maybe in the next Guardians movie.

Right, like I said, it was just a brief moment and then I knew. In fairness, I was watching it on my phone. Terry Crews IS hilarious; I'd love to see him in a Marvel flick.

It's a very short scene in the last episode, in which he talks about his food addiction and accidentally breaks the window of an ice cream shop.  I think it was ice cream.  Some delicious food, anyway.

Fantastic show. My wife and I laugh and laugh. Excellent gay character... Gina is a piss! I love the ep when they called her, "You've reached the voice mail of Gina, leave a message but I won't get it, because it's not 1993..."

LOVE Stephen Root!

And, Butterfly, Andy is cute, I wouldn't say he was HOT... Magic Mike is hot, I wouldn't kick him out of my bed for eating crackers... 'Course, I would have to fight my wife off of him.

But Andy... well... you would know better than I. I am only half-a-fag.

This reminds me of something the Riff guys do... and it is out of left field here, but, you know how they hate when men don't wear shirts? That always cracks me up... "It seems Patrick Swayze has thrown away all of his shirts..." Every movie if a guy goes shirtless they totally rag on the guy. But no one gets beat up about "serial shirtlessness" more than Mathew McGhonegey, or however you spell his fucked up Irish name.

Just makes me laugh...  Mike does a great Mathew McGohonegeney.... "All right, all right, all right..."

Wait, I don't know names, is Andy Samberg the African American muscle dude? Cuz he is hot... plus he is smart and funny... which is unusual in a guy with a body like that!

I assumed Andy Samberg was the little Jewish lead guy.... but that was just my assumption and you know what happens when you assume... I am an ass!

I don't know any of the actors' names, I just think they are all brilliant.
