I don't know what the "Funky Cold Medina" is. Even context clues have failed me.

Is this a show that needs to be watched? I feel like it does but have never heard it talked about and just saw that it's been on since 2013. I do tend to live underground sometimes.

It's got a bit of a 30 Rock feel to it as well.  Hilariously absurd.  

I just realized I've never typed the word "absurd" before.  I was shocked when spell check gave me the go ahead.  I still think there's a decent chance I spelled in incorrectly.

The one thing I was worried about Nine-Nine was Andy Samberg. He is like Will Ferrel in that he can go way overboard with the absurd. (h/t GoPokes). But he manages to just give you a taste and then reel it back in. I never expected to like Nine-Nine, but I'm a big fan.

Also, Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker) FTW!

Imma have to assume all those zingers were better in context because I didn’t find any of that funny. That guy was good in Glory though.

The Nine-Nine may not be your cup of tea.

I can’t believe I haven’t been watching this show. I laughed my ass off at those videos. 

the velvet thunder clip (from "the chopper" episode) is funny on its own, but if you hadn't been watching up until that episode, you weren't completely familiar with the personality clashes between samberg and capt holt.  when he finally breaks and agrees to use code names and call it "a chopper", the payoff is worth it.

start from the beginning.  it's a great show and somehow underrated.

 

the best running gag on the show:

 

 

 

oh, and i was originally looking for the "twas" clip:

is gina linetti the most under-appreciated character on tv?

 

it's not in the above clip, because she didn't say it.  but there's a great scene where rosa is talking to a guy who went to high school with gina, about how terrible and self-centered she is.  and rosa is like, "on two separate occasions, she's called me gina.  that's her own name."

ben wyatt for most under appreciated, but gina is my jam, my jelly, my peanut butter, and my peanuts.

Probably my favorite acid trip.

I could be wrong, but Eric Andre doesn't have anything to do with Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

I just finished binging seasons 3-5. Great, great show IMO. So many hilarious characters. In addition to the ones already named, Craig Robinson's guest appearances always make me laugh my ass off.

the episode where they lose cheddar is a great one. 

Love the Cinco de Mayo one. The discussion of Mr. Hootsworth's bandana color always makes me lol.

hulu is great.

and if you're considering cutting the cord, hulu is a must have.  they run most major network stuff as early as the day after an episode airs (everything except cbs i believe).

when we cut the cord, i thought we'd mostly watch netflix, but hulu has dominated.  we also have directvnow, so we're not completely cut off from live tv.

there are several good threads if you're looking for comparisons.

i don't want to derail this thread, so y'all should visit this one:

re: netflix, i've found that other than the occasional mad men or west wing rerun, if i'm watching netflix, then i'm watching netflix-exclusive content.  i would definitely ditch netflix before hulu if given the option of those two.

Also for those who are new to 99, it starts funny but gets even better. Like Parks and Rec, the first season is the weakest. 

It's noticably slower in the earlier episodes. The jokes speed up and it takes off later in the show.

Season 7 premieres with back to back episodes next Thursday. Damn I'm pumped to have new episodes of 99 to watch. Wife and I watched the entire series over a month or so last year.

[csb] The guy who plays Scully, Joel Miller, used to wait tables and tend bar at Engine Co. No. 28, the downtown LA bar my work colleagues and I frequented back in the 90's.  Very nice guy.  We knew he was an actor and that the restaurant work was to make ends meet, but it was pretty cool when he started landing stuff like The Truman Show.

Vicky's Vegan.. I'd rather eat shit

This line had me and my wife rolling. Boyle's badass "Chuck Boyle" persona from the 2nd episode also got me. Strong start to the new season.
