Review

When it was announced that there was going to be a new season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine there was a sense of jubilation that was only tempered slightly by the fact that it was also announced that Chelsea Peretti would not be doing the full season, but she would be back for guest appearances. Well, today we get the first of those as we get a little insight into the crazy world of Gina Linetti.

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.
