Brooklyn Nine Nine – s05 ep 13 – The Negotiaton – Review

ATTENTION! This post contains spoilers for the entire 5 seasons of Brooklyn Nine-Nine including the latest aired episode!

It’s finally Monday!!! And this means… Another Brooklyn Nine Nine review! SO EXCITING!!

Like the guys on Pod Save America always say: a bit of house keeping! Some self promotion! Not because I want views or likes or some shit like that. I desperately want the entire world to watch this show! So…

You can read my review of the latest episode here!

And you can read all about my Brooklyn Nine Nine week here: Day 1 (Gina Linetti), Day 2 (Capt. Raymond Holt), Day 3 (Halloween Episodes), Day 4 (Social Issues on B99), Day 5 (LBGTQ+), Day 6 (Guest stars and recurring characters), Day 7 (15 reasons why you should watch Brooklyn99).


What. And. Episode.

I loved it so much!!! It’s always fun when dog Judy comes back to Brooklyn 99 and this episode wasn’t an exception.

Jake gets asked to be the negotiator in a hostage situation: but who’s on the other side? IT’S DOUG JUDY!

The Pontiac Bandit is back! Usually one time in every season, Doug Judy comes back to the show and forces Jake into weird situations. What’s most hilarious, is the love and friendship that is shared between the two of them.

Even though they’re supposed to be nemesis, they have this bond and respect. It makes me so happy!

Aside from the banter between Jake and Judy, Captain Holt and Terry were facing quite a problem: a representative of the Commissioners office came to the precinct to interview the captain subordinates and they chose Hitchcock. HITCHCOCK!

Of course everybody freaked out and Terry and Holt tried to do a sort of “The My Fair Lady-fication of Hitchcock.”, as the AVclub.com said.

While all of this was going on, Charles opened his food truck and it was a disaster! He became even meaner than Gordon Ramsay and it was FANTASTIC!

This exchange between Charles and Amy blew my mind and had me laughing for hours:

“Do I look like Jake to you?”

“No, not at all!”

“THEN WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO SCREW ME!?!?!?”

This is the stuff that I live for on Brooklyn 99. It was perfect, hilarious and overall majestic.

And Jake and Judy singing “What’s Up” by 4 Non Blondes was so funny and at the same time, adorable. Not to mention when they started talking about Jake and Amy’s imminent nuptials!!!!

It’s the most pure and at the same time inappropriate on the show. Maybe other than Boyle’s adoration for Jake and his romantic relationship with Amy.



I hope you liked this review! Talking about Brooklyn 99 just give me so much joy and it feels my heart with happiness.

Next week’s episode is going to be amazing: Sterling K Brown is a guest star and I already know I’m going to love this episode. Mostly because I love every single one of the show’s episodes.

One more thing, share your love for Brooklyn Nine-Nine on social media using the hashtags #Brooklyn99 and #RenewBrooklyn99 and directly tweeting at @FOXTV and @Brooklyn99FOX.

“American Crime Story: The Assassination Of Gianni Versace” – First Impression Review

Although “American crime story: the assassination of John Versace“ aired on FX in mid January, I have only just recently decided to give it a go.

Last year, I watched season one of Brian Murphy is “The People v. O.J. Simpson“ and I found that extremely fascinating and interesting.

I had quite high hopes this second season but to be fair, I’m not that impressed with its first episode.

Quick recap, the story is about (like the title suggests) the assassination of notorious italian fashion designer Gianni Versace outside his home in Miami Beach, Florida.

From the title of the show I was under the impression that the show would be ONLY about what happens after the murder. But in reality, they are going back and forth in time to show his killer and Versace’s relationship.

Edgar Ramirez as Gianni Versace

I thought that it would be just like “The People v. O.J. Simpson”, and this change completely threw me off.

Being Italian, I kind of hoped they would cast Italian actors to play Italians but instead they cast Spanish actors. I get that all languages are similar and it’s easier for them to speak Italian but… come on!

Aside from this, the show is stunning. I absolutely loved the yellow tone that represents Florida so well, the camerawork was so good. The first scene lasts quite a long time: It’s the 10 minutes (more or less) that preceded Gianni’s death. The music that they chose was fantastic and as an opening scene, it made quite an impact.

Darren Criss as Andrew Cunanan

So far, I have only seen the first episode. And although I currently don’t think it’s as good as season one, I’ll probably keep watching. I know nothing about Gianni Versace so I’m eager to find out more about his life.

It would not “American crime story“ if it didn’t deal with important social issues of the time: in “The people versus O.J. Simpson“ racism, sexism, and police brutality were protagonists alongside those involved This one, it’s about homophobia and fear of the gay community in Florida in the mid-90s.

The show stirred some controversy in Italy because of how Ryan Murphy, creator of the show, decided to portray Gianni Versace. People who actually knew him went on programs on TV to say how little of his life and his artistic side was shown. I haven’t seen it all yet but to those people I say: “Did you not see the title of the show? It clearly states: assassination.”

To conclude, the quality of the show is still great, the actors gave a wonderful performance and it is clear that it’s very well made. My only hope is that they can keep people interested and focused on the show despite going back and forth in time.

 

What’s your opinion? Did you see the show? Should I keep going on? Let me know!
