Anyone a Fan of Brooklyn Nine-Nine? [View all]

The trailer for the eighth and final season dropped today.

I am really going to miss this show. It was always a guaranteed mood-lifter. I love the diversity of the cast, the 180 turn on stereotypes, (Is there any human less flamboyant than Raymond Holt?) and the loyalty-except-for-Halloween-heist evident within the squad.

Intellectually, I understand why it seems so tough to make a cop comedy right now with the ugly truth about systemic police brutality finally being communicated (a little) to White, mainstream America. But the show managed to thoughtfully approach some sensitive issues during earlier seasons. Ending this television series isn't going to make police in this country any better, but it will make television a little worse.

Just my two-cents, for what it's worth.

(Two-cents, I guess.)
