    Its all kicking off!....citing! :)
    The upfronts are upon us, fans bite their nails to see if there fave show is renewed or axed. Most of the results are in, but NBC and especially ABC have yet to drop official word.

    Today Fox has ordered four pilots to series: http://tvline.com/2013/05/08/fox-new-series-fall-2013-tv-shows-jj-abrams-almost-human/



    Brooklyn Nine-Nine (previously the untitled Dan Goor/Mike Schur comedy)
    Logline: Revolves around a diverse group of detectives at a New York precinct and what happens when a detective who doesn't take anything seriously gets a new by-the-book boss who wants him to grow up and respect the badge.
    Cast: Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz,Chelsea Peretti, Joe Lo Truglio
    Team: W/EP Dan Goor, Mike Schur (Parks and Recreation); EP David Miner; P Andy Samberg; D Phil Lord, Chris Miller (21 Jump Street)
    Studio: Universal Television, 3 Arts
    Format: Single-camera



    Kinda reminds of the underrated show The Unusuals if done by the SNL crew :P but the casting of Andre Braugher is interesting plus Crews and Samberg can be very funny

    Like the look of that! Braugher is good casting actually. I just hope all the good bits aren't in this trailer! I'm getting a kind of Chuck vibe off it, though obviously quite a different show and it has elements of Sledgehammer also which is no bad thing!

    This looks pretty darn good. I will be watching this.

    i actually thought this was gonna be an hour long drama cop show, but im delighted its a half hour cop comedy show, and i must say it looks pretty damn good,


  • Registered Users Posts: 690 ✭✭✭ Gingervitis


    First episode quite good. Has a real Parks and Rec vibe (given the same show runners) and now we've gotten the characters out of the way, I'm hoping it's gonna go up in quality!

    I really liked the pilot - could be one that I stick with.


  • Moderators, Music Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 25,716 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Boom_Bap


    Defo liked that, will be waiting for the next episode to air.

    Pilots are always tricky things to judge but this has huge potential judging from it.

    Samberg has had a couple of false starts in his career but there's no doubt that he's incredibly talented and I think this is a role that could be his making. A really likeable supporting cast as well.

    Can't wait to see how this develops.

    I liked this. It sort of reminded me of Scrubs (wacky guy, and everyone else is slightly more serious), but I prefer this show a lot more.

    Really enjoyed the first episode. It was a by the book pilot but there was quite a bit of inventiveness to how it unfolded. Loved how Terry Crewes explained each character to the new boss. It poked fun at many of the cop genre cliches while at the same time providing some good laughs and telling us everything we need to know about each character.

    The episode wasn't laugh out loud funny but it did raise a lot of smiles and there's genuine potential there for it to evolve into one of the weeks highlights. It's certainly leagues ahead of trash like Dads

    I'm really enjoying this, it's one if the better new shows and has a quiet charm that you really warm too. I'm hoping that subsequent episodes will see a loittle more action out side of the station but for tea time TV you can't go wrong.

    For me it was probably the new sitcom of the season I've been most anticipating, but so far it has disappointed me. I'm gonna give it until episode 8 or 9, because it's far from awful and I think sitcoms can sometimes struggle to find their feet, but so far I think CBS and ABC are way ahead of the game with the sitcoms this season... Fox and NBC, not so much with the winning combinations...

    Think it's very good actually.. kinda still getting a bit of a Scrubs vibe off it, but I like it!

    Caught up on this over the weekend and enjoying it, my favourite new comedy so far, Samburg is very good.


  • Registered Users Posts: 852 oxygen


    gah, flew through the first 5 episodes of this way to quick. Need to wait a week now for a half hour episode. Its very good, with the amount of US sitcom junk out there its good to get something quality like this. Great casting as well.


  • Registered Users Posts: 43,447 ✭✭✭✭ Basq


    The only problem I have with the show is Chelsea Peretti... horribly unfunny!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,130 ✭✭✭ ceegee


    Another very funny episode this week, loved the sex tape titles.

    Imo, only IASIP has surpassed it in terms of sitcoms so far this season. Great ensemble (except Gina - by far the least funny character) who have gelled instantly.

    E4 has picked up the show, but it isn't been aired until next year as far as I remember.

    :eek: I love Gina, the civilian administrator, right? The sardonic drawl, complete lack of enthusiam for anything other than modern dance, the hideous jumpers. And she has gelled really well with the Andy Sandberg, they have some great scenes together.

    I agree. I was quite surprised when I read here that people didn't like her. I think she's a very good character. More interesting than the Sargent anyway.

    Didn't think this week's episode was up to the same standard as the rest of the series.

    Yea, I thought there was a definite lull with this episode. Still, one dud out of 6 is not bad, and I did find the last few minutes fairly funny (from when he was locked in handcuffs on)

    Yeah I'm still watching and enjoying it for the most part. There have been a couple of episodes that were only ok but that's to be expected I suppose.


  • Moderators, Music Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 25,716 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Boom_Bap


    Best new comedy this year for me, really enjoy every episode. They've gotten the balance right for each character. There are some show that take an eternity for a character (or rather the writers) to get to grips with themselves. Not the case here.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 10,326 ✭✭✭✭ Dozen Wicked Words


    Agree. All the episodes so far have ranged from good to really good. No duds any way. Very funny.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,195 irish son


    Its my favourite new show by far, I thought the Thanksgiving episode was the best so far, loved Boyle Bingo :D
