Now that Brooklyn Nine-Nine has officially wrapped its fifth year with a whopping finale, we can officially start going crazy about what season six has in store for us when the show returns. Don’t blame us, after the emotional rollercoaster that was Fox’s cancellation followed by NBC’s hero-like rescue onlyRead More →

Guys, we made it. After five long, arduous seasons of will-they-won’t-they, after Sophias and undercover missions, after mob bosses and Florida, hell, even after jail, we finally made it. Jake and Amy are married. And I am still a crying mess on the floor. It has been a wild ride,Read More →

The thing about writing a brilliant episode is that it’s hard to follow up on it. Barry’s seventh hour had proven to be one of the best episodes television has ever delivered, so the stakes were high and the expectations were even higher going into the show’s season finale. AndRead More →

Like a beautiful phoenix rising from its ashes, like Jesus himself coming back to life after his death, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has resurfaced from its cancellation fate and brought back by our now true lord and savior, NBC. Seriously, they have saved our collective asses. Thanks are in order, NBC. TheRead More →

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been cancelled, and everything is most definitely not okay. To quote Community’s always on-point Abed, we are living in the darkest timeline. I know what you’re going to say. So many shows deserve to be renewed and are cancelled! Why is Brooklyn Nine-Nine any different? It metRead More →

Multi-chaptered, thousand page books could and should be written about what Alec Berg, Bill Hader and the cast, crew and writers of Barry’s seventh episode delivered to us in 30 minutes of utterly brilliant, screen and soul consuming storytelling. It’s not even a masterpiece. There is no actual phrase orRead More →

If the last couple Brooklyn Nine-Nine episodes have taught us anything, it’s that this show does comedy remarkably well. We already knew this. We’ve known for years. But the brilliant thing about this ensemble comedy is it’s admirable capacity to shift the tone of an entire episode into something darker,Read More →

A hero who can’t seem to catch a break is the main ingredient in any story. It’s the perfectly complex situation to place your characters in, the writing gold mine you wish you could submerge your characters in constantly. Because the bigger the problem, the more story there is toRead More →

Few shows manage to sustain a hilariously consistent tone throughout their entire run. Even fewer manage to run for five years without having ups and downs in their writing. Brooklyn Nine-Nine isn’t one of those shows. There’s an amazing quality to this show that’s worthy of celebration: it manages toRead More →

When Marvel released The Avengers roughly ten years ago, it seemed like the event of a lifetime. It was. Our favorite superheroes together, uniting despite their differences and their possible initial dislike of each other, to “fight the battles that we never could”. Joss Whedon was in charge of directingRead More →

It’s getting increasingly harder to rank the latest Brooklyn Nine-Nine episodes from funniest to least funniest. This second half of season five has been so steadily hilarious, the lines begin to blur when we try and figure out which, exactly, is the funniest episode we’ve seen. And if that’s notRead More →

Barry is irredeemable. He murders people for a living, he follows orders seemingly without questioning them first. He takes hits on people, he kills them in the most brutal ways. He is never going to be able to have a normal murder-free life. He is never going to be ableRead More →

What a great week this has been to be a Bill Hader enthusiast. Not only was the news of Barry’s season two renewal on HBO the greatest, but if you’ve been paying attention, it looks like Bill Hader is in talks to portray an adult Richie Tozier in the secondRead More →

Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s double episode seemed to open a whole lot of storylines for a show that’s still waiting for a season 6 renewal. On one hand, “NutriBoom” seemed to set up a pretty established big baddie that low-key threatened Jake and Amy’s security. And on the other, “DFW” introduced us to noneRead More →

One of the best shows of the year has been officially renewed to come back for a second season. HBO renewed their new show Barry on Thursday, and fans were ecstatic. The show is due to return with a still unknown number of episodes in 2019, although HBO has not announcedRead More →

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has the healthiest relationships on television right now. Actually, it has the healthiest relationships in the history of television, ever. It’s probably due to the fact that its genre —a comedy— allows them to bypass the drama and the unhappiness that, specifically, romantic relationships rely on to keepRead More →

Barry is a rollercoaster. There is no other way to describe the amazingly written, award-worthy incredible piece of storytelling that is this show. Every week we think this show is going somewhere, and while tonally and cinematographically it remains pretty solid, its ability to pull the rug from underneath usRead More →

If Barry’s pilot was anything to go by, we expected a certain structure to episodes, almost like a hit-of-the-week formula where we’d see Barry try to juggle his hitman life with his newly found love of acting. We imagined a gruesome death every week and an emotional dilemma for Barry to workRead More →

Bottle episodes are not always the best. They’re there to fill in gaps, and usually, the physical limitations of production work against the show. Unless the writers have been able to sustain actual character storylines and development throughout the season, half of the time, bottle episodes don’t work because charactersRead More →

HBO’s new show is an incredibly exciting one. There, I said it. Alec Berg (Silicon Valley) and Bill Hader have teamed up to write and direct a refreshing, 30 minute television show that simultaneously baffles and confuses you, and yet excites you, leaving you desperately needing more. “Barry” is aRead More →
