As we continue along this surprise extra season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, we have had big episodes, we have had funny
episodes, we have had dramatic episodes. Well, today what we get is a smaller
affair, but it takes a moment to use that contained nature to develop
So to set the scene, Jake (Andy Samberg) arrives late to the briefing and gets
punished in the cruellest way, okay that is just the cold open. We actually
start with Keven (Marc Evan Jackson) leaving Holt’s (Andre Braugher) office and
them sharing a public handshake before leaving. However, Kevin is not going
straight to work because he needs to have a quiet word with Jake. For you see,
a number of important coins had gone missing in the office that he works in,
and he can’t go straight to Holt because Holt can become a bit out of place when
there is a case where Kevin is involved. So they plan to do the case in secret,
and that goes about as well as you can expect. Now from here, we will be looking at the episode
as a whole, so there will be some [SPOILERS] ahead.
TL;DR – Honeymoon brings everyone back together, hits all the right beats,
and propels the show forward, so a great opening episode of a season.
Score – 4.5 out of 5 stars
I have been around long enough that the list of shows that I love that got cancelled
without closure is a decently long list. When it happens you always hear of
trying to get it picked up by another network, but this barely ever happens. So
when Brooklyn Nine-Nine got cancelled,
I lamented the stupid decision, but I knew it was unlikely to change, and if
there was ever a time I was happy to be wrong this is it. Well, now we are back and even more extraordinary
we have a full season pick up, so let’s dive into
the first episode of the season Honeymoon.
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.
