    The bit before the opening credits in the worst episode of Brooklyn 99 is 100 times funnier than the funniest episode of the Big Bang Theory.

    BBT is just going through the motions at this stage. Used to love it but it's very hard to watch any more.

    Through the motions, indeed.

    It was getting repetitive to some degree but there was still some miles left in some of the stories I felt

    I would love a proper book end to it, that being said. :o

    I would say the same for Captain Holt yelling "BONE!"

    We sat again for an hour and a half discussing maps and figures and always getting back to that most damnable creation of the perverted ingenuity of man - the County of Tyrone.

    Some talk that Hulu will take it on.

    I originally dismissed the show as just another generic US sitcom in an ocean of generic US sitcoms. I started watching it on Netflix after a recommendation. It took a while for it to grow on me but when it did, I saw a great, progressive show with a cracking cast and great male characters like Holt and Jeffords. The female characters are also excellent but it's nice to see a character like Jeffords who's so positive about being a family man. But what really sets it apart for me are the fleeting moments which display little hints of each characters more idiosyncratic tendencies with this one being a favourite:

    Hulu are one of the main contenders as they have some sort of deal with the show already.
    Yeah, I know. And both Hulu and Netflix passed on a 6th season.

    Did they pass on it? I would have thought the NBC thing came about because of the very close ties with Schur.
    Yep, they passed. Ties don't matter more than money. If someone like Netlix brought it, NBC would make more money from that sale, than just funding an extra season themselves.

    Not necessarily... Netflix's deal terms may have been too onerous to be acceptable to NBC and it may have been cheaper to just produce/distribute 13 episodes themselves.

    That being said, I agree with you - it's a business decision as opposed to a "ties" situation at the end of the day.

    NBC just released their fall schedule. Brooklyn nine nine will air mid-season meaning we won't see season 6 till January

    My fav character ,also thought she had the best lines.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 26,658 ✭✭✭✭OldMrBrennan83


    For me, she's about the only character that could have left and the show would improve.

    Surely Scully and Hitchcook,there a bit of a one trick pony.Thankfully cheddar is not leaving.

    Hitchcock is class in the last couple of series, yeah but maybe Scully.

    I just think they took Gina too far and she's become more annoying than anything of late.
