It’s still the same show and still great. But all that time worrying does provide a fresh opportunity to appreciate what makes the show tick, and why it resonates so strongly six seasons later. In short, producer and showrunner Dan Goor makes every second count.
[The jokes are funny] but it’s a bit subdued. The upside is that the aforementioned emotional honesty comes through loud and clear, but one hopes that Nine-Nine will get a bit more of its usual pep in its step as the season progresses. If the writing and direction don’t always benefit from the subdued tone, the performances, and Braugher’s in particular, absolutely soar. Every member of the cast has timing that’s as good as ever.
Frankly disappointing. The season felt off in comparison to previous seasons. There were a few good episodes but the season lacked.... humour. It was also way to politically charged for a supposedly easy watching show. Not sure if I’ll ever consider NBC B99 as real B99.
Nice to see the crew back together, but I felt tonally the season premiere was "off", and not very funny at all. I'll still tune in to see if it finds it's footing again, but disappointed and hoping it doesn't go off the rails.
Very sad to say that my guilty pleasure has brought far more guilt than pleasure this season.
The Gina story arc felt so awkward it felt Chelsea Peretti was removing herself from the show for some very dark reasons. It felt so unlike the benevolent nature of this show that we all loved.
The Rosa Diaz character has become insufferable, while Boyle, Terry and Amy are now as flimsy as never before.
Captain Holt and Jake are running in circles with very unconvincing and tired tropes.
Scully and Hitchcock have de facto become the soul of the show! What an irony given the incredibly lame woke episodes that have been forced onto the viewers.
