TL;DR – One will now and
always will cherish the yearly Doug Judy updates on Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Score – 4 out of 5 stars
This week we get the first major change of the season with a new opening titles
sequence, which you had to expect was coming after last week’s Four
Movements. However, as much as things change it is nice as we continue
throughout the season that it is time to return to some old friends, and also a
time to fight for what is yours.
So to set the scene, Jake (Andy Samberg) is working when Terry (Terry Crews) confronts
him with the news that Doug Judy (Craig Robinson) has been stealing cars again.
Aghast Jake backs up his buddy because he
knows that Doug has gone clean, though he has said that multiple times in the
past. To straighten this all out Terry gets in contact with Judy only to find
out that tragically he has passed away. So who could be stealing cars with Doug’s
MO when Doug is dead? As well as that, the rest of the gang arrive at their
local bar only to find it is filled with …. Gasp … Firefighters. Now from here,
we will be looking at the episode as a whole, so there will be some [SPOILERS] ahead.
TL;DR – Today is a goodbye,
but then it also was the perfect goodbye to have
Score – 4.5 out of 5 stars
The last-minute renewal of Brooklyn Nine-Nine was both a joy, but it was also tinged with a little bit of sadness. This is that even though B99 got a half and then a full season pick up, it was also announced that Chelsea Peretti would be leaving the show. Well, that time has come, but with all things Gina, it was a joy to watch.
So to set the scene, at the end of The Tattler Jake (Andy Samberg) had a heart to heart with Gina (Chelsea Peretti) about where she saw her future, and was she being held back at the 99? Well at the start of Four Movements we get to hear her answer as she announces to the whole team that she is leaving the 99 and then she hands in her two-week notice with a four-part interpretive dance movement. Now from here, we will be looking at the episode as a whole, so there will be some [SPOILERS] ahead.
TL;DR – Safe House shows that five seasons in Brooklyn Nine-Nine is getting better and better, blending humour and emotion into an amazing episode.
Score – 5 out of 5 stars
Now, I have to say that Brooklyn Nine-Nine might be one of the best gems out there on TV at the moment, and one of the few shows that I actively seek out these days. It is created by Dan Goor & Michael Schur who have been the creative minds behind The Daily Show, Saturday Night Live, Parks and Recreation, The Good Place, and more. So right from the start, you have an amazing creative team that extends out to all the writing staff. As well as this, you have an amazing and diverse cast that is committed to working together as a team. They all have an amazing rapport with each other, which feels effortless. It is from this platform that they keep getting better each season.
TL;DR – A fascinating documentary dissecting every facet of food, from its history, its traditions, and the future.
Score – 4 out of 5 stars
As a food culture, we have really started to focus on tradition, authenticity, style and presentation, but have we lost something in the process? This is something that chef David Chang is trying to get to the heart off in his new series Ugly Delicious which he hosts with food writer Peter Meehan. Chang who is known from his Momofuku restaurants is pulling apart what makes food the way it is, what makes something traditional and something rebellious, and what is the soul of the food we may eat on a daily basis.
