Brooklyn Nine-Nine – Season One: DVD Review











Season Overview:

Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) is a Brooklyn detective with a gift for closing cases and little respect for authority. When no-nonsense commanding officer Raymond Holt (Andre Braugher) joins the 99th precinct with something to prove, the two go head to head.

It’s been a really long time since I’ve seen a live action Fox comedy show that has made me laugh exactly like this show has. It’s pretty much like every other cop show that you may have seen before but with hilarious stupidity. When I first popped it in I wasn’t too sure to expect and but after two episodes I was able to get a feel for what the show was going for and I found myself laughing out loud at every episodes that came after that. I realized something as I got through the season. This show was one of the first ensemble casts that I’ve seen in a long time that were so ethnically diverse. The best thing about that is they didn’t do the worst thing and make them all stereotypical. They all have equally hilarious screen time with stories of their own to follow ans surprisingly enough it doesn’t get stale one bit. There really isn’t a linear story throughout the season which I actually consider a good thing because it allows anyone to jump right in and enjoy the show at any time. Samberg has this adolescent humor about him that mixes well with the rest of the group and reminds me a lot of the way me and my friends joke around. I can honestly say that I wasn’t expecting much from the show but was so pleasantly surprised that I’ve already set my DVR to record season 2 (which premiered yesterday). This show has definitely picked up a new fan and I really think everyone should check this out

Special Features:

Deleted Scenes – This is the ONLY special feature throughout the season which a bit of a let down because I know for sure that this group of actors would have and awesome Gag Reel but on the plus side there are enough deleted scenes here to keep anyone entertained.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season One is available NOW on DVD from Universal Studios Home Entertainment
