About Brooklyn Nine-Nine:Brooklyn 99 is an American police sitcom. It follows a police precinct under a new captain named Raymond Holt. Jake Peralta, known for being a man-child but the best detective, opposes the captain as Holt immediately picks over his every move. Amy Santiago, Jake’s rival and self-confessed teacher’s pet, wants tutoring from him. Others in the squad are Charles Boyle, who is Jake’s overeager best friend, the terrifying and secretive Rosa Diaz, the friendly and protective sergeant Terry Jeffords and the lazy older detectives Hitchcock and Scully. Gina Linetti is the narcissistic but street smart civilian administrator, who later becomes Holt’s assistant.
Jake and Holt’s relationship starts off strained. Jake liked the old captain as he didn’t care about the rules, only the results. Holt is a nuisance to him. However, after learning more about him, Jake becomes somewhat protective of him. One frequently running gag is that Jake sees Holt as a father figure, even calling him ‘dad’ in later seasons. Another gag started by Jake and Holt is Halloween Heist, where they bet to have something at the end of the night, or the loser has to fulfil a bet. Eventually, this became a squad tradition every year.
Each character changes in Brooklyn 99. Amy wants desperately to be Holt’s student. However, she stands up to him and others when the situation calls for it. Charles has an attraction to Rosa Diaz, but she never reciprocates. He eventually finds love in another woman as well as adopting his son. He also ends up even standing up for himself, when no one believes his suspect has stolen from the bank. Rosa opens up to the team, slowing delving more personal information. Terry, on desk duty, gets over his fear of leaving his children fatherless to return to active duty. Jake matures as the series goes on, from figuring out the truth about his father to admitting his own shortcomings for cases.
Brooklyn 99 is hilarious with many gags and dynamic characters. But it is not scared to get serious. Reflecting on many issues facing the current world, as well as issues within the police force. Holt shows how damaging the police force was towards black and gay police officers. Terry also shows how racial profiling even affects black police officers. Coming out, tackling the #MeToo movement, and how police officers deal with shootouts are more examples of issues tackled by the 99.

Brooklyn 99 has been nominated and has won many awards including Golden Globes and more. The show has become a pop sensation with many memorable quotes such as ‘cool, cool, cool, cool, cool.
