Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Season 3) (2015)

The third season of Fox’s relaxed, enjoyable sitcom is as strong as the first two: It’s primarily character-driven, and thanks to a great rotating writing crew and a charismatic cast, there’s plenty to enjoy. The series has a habit of writing itself into a corner at the end of each season and slowly dismantling it over the first few episodes of the following season, which here takes a little longer than necessary, but in the end it all works out. The show is best when it focusses on the unity of the squad and there’s plenty of that in this season, and Andy Samberg is a generous leading man, giving a terrific comedic performance and also allowing his co-stars to shine as much as him, and the finished product is truly an entertaining ensemble piece where every character is as important as the lead.

Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
