Why should you watch Brooklyn Nine-nine?
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is an American sitcom that belongs to the comedy genre. The series is created by Michael Schur and Dan Goor. The plot is set in the fictional 99th Precinct of Brooklyn where we see an immature but talented NYPD detective named Jake Peralta played by Andy Samberg. In the Precinct, we also see a “robotic” commanding officer Captain Reymond Holt played by Andre Braugher. This show is super fun to watch and according to most people, the characters in the show are quite relatable. So, if you haven’t watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine yet, you can watch it now and see how this NYPD force takes action against crime (in a hilarious fashion).
As it was said earlier, the creators have managed to sketch some quirky characters in the show. For instance, the highly ambitious Amy Santiago played by Melissa Fumero and the eccentric and sensitive Charles Boyle played by Joe Lo Truglio. But when we talk about character development, the best one in that lot is Captain Raymond Holt. In the pilot episode, we can see him as a “dead inside” kind of person who is overly strict. However, as the story progresses we can see him letting his walls down and revealing his funny side.
Despite the fact that Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a comedy series, it does not shy away from portraying essential issues like gender equality, corruption, homophobia, etc. If you watch this sitcom, you will understand why we are saying that. Moreover, this sitcom is celebrated because of its highly diverse cast. Brooklyn Nine-Nine provides differently coloured people. Also, we can see women in positions of power. For instance, the leading cast features 2 African American men and 2 Latina women. Furthermore, we see no stereotypes involving these characters. For instance, we can see Captain Holt and Rosa Diaz played by Stephanie Beatriz as members of the LGBTQ+ community. And they are not defined by their sexuality. How “cool” is that?
In addition, we also see the cutest member of the Brooklyn Nine-Nine family who is Cheddar. He is a well-trained corgi of Captain Holt and Kevin Cozner, his husband. The directors have made a full-length episode on Cheddar as well. So, if you want to watch or binge-watch a show on friendships, responsibilities, and characters that can turn your life around, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is the right pick for you.
