Brooklyn Nine-Nine was a new contender in the TV scene last year, coming in with a strong first season. Its second season is a worthy continuation of that. The writing is tight and the jokes come fast and readily, helped in no small part by the excellent comedic timing of its actors.

As a sitcom, there isn’t a whole lot in the way of overarching plot, although there is more this time around than in the first season. As a result, each story seems a bit disjointed, and no one story is particularly memorable. But overall it’s an enjoyable series and something that’s easy to look forward to after a long day at work.

Also since it’s a sitcom, character development is pretty limited and usually serves to emphasize the characters’ distinctive traits – but it’s worth noting that enough real character development is done to keep the series feeling a bit fresh, even if occasionally I got the feeling that the lessons characters were learning by the end of the episode were just going to be forgotten by the next.

I was pleased with this season, in any case – I’ll be continuing to watch it next year. In fact it should be starting again in September, so I have something to look forward to.
