Storyline

Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) is a talented, but carefree police detective at Brooklyn's ninety-ninth precinct who, along with his eclectic group of colleagues, are used to having a lax captain around the office. However, when tightly-wound Captain Ray Holt (Andre Braugher) takes over, he is determined to make this dysfunctional group of detectives into the best precinct in Brooklyn. Written by Anonymous

Not Impressed but Sparked Enough Interest For Further Viewing
16 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The pilot episode of this show begins by introducing you to some of our characters. Jake Peralta (played by Andy Samberg) is a goofy but intelligent NYPD detective who never takes anything seriously, his determined partner Amy Santiago thinks he is a joke and is always trying to best him. There is a change in command in the precinct that they work in and the new Captain Ray Holt takes charge. The Captain takes a new no nonsense kind of approach which doesn't fly well with Peralta's childish behavior.

Overall, I was not impressed with the opening episode. Most of it was poorly acted, corny humor, and with ratings as high as they are for this show I just expected more. The script was not written very well or maybe it was just the delivery. I thought it started to redeem itself in the end and decided that I would have to watch a few more episodes before I can make a final opinion on the show. I think it could go either way, good or bad.
