Brooklyn Nine-Nine Series Review

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is comedy gold as expected going by the other shows created by Michael Shur. Premiering on September 17, 2013, and growing a huge fan base, it was canceled by Fox Network on May 10, 2018, after five seasons.

Fox is kicking themselves now because not only is it humorous, but it also sheds light on modern-day social issues.

Along with Jake, the closest detective to taking his crown is Detective Amy Santiago, who is a determined and by the book detective who keeps him on his toes. Their back and forth banter bring both laughs and cringe-worthy momen
