Amy's dorkiness is always amusing to me.

Who knew Holt was such a fan of the thigh gap?

Great first two eps, I like they're putting in just a little bit of serialization from episode to episode, a nice little wrinkle that the show needed. It's hard to know if they'll continue that but they've ended on cliffhangers in a way.

New episode today:

Season 5: episode 3 "Kicks"

Now that he's officially back at the precinct and desperate to solve a real case, Jake finds a loophole to get out of his temporarily designated desk duty. Unfortunately, that loophole rests on his ability to pass an official evaluation performed by Holt. While Charles provides Jake with moral support, Terry and Amy help Rosa, who believes Pimento may be cheating on her.

- Promo for this week's episode.

It's hard to describe. If you're familiar with Spaced, then that's probably the best series to compare it to, off the top of my head. It's got the same mix of random silliness, word-play and serious character moments.

It's definitely worth a try, but if you're starting from Season 1 (advised, due to character and relationship growth) then I'd say it doesn't hit its stride until episode 4, so bear that in mind.

I'd say it's pretty close to Parks and Recreation (it has some of the same people behind it too), but slightly less feel-good and more absurd.

Eh, he was always a “this person doesn’t exist in the same reality” character compared to the rest of the show. I think they got what they could out of him.

I appreciated that with these last two seasons they’re willing to be serious long enough for some of these beats to land, especially in regards to the problems with policing.

Yeah, it's crazy how the show is able to nail the Halloween episodes each year. Consistently one of the best episodes of the season. So many funny moments with the return of fake Boyle, Terry's loves of yogurt backfiring, fake Cheddar, and the surprise twist with Jake and Amy at the end.

I really liked that episode. I'm going to be disappointed when the show gets cancelled this season, but 5 seasons is a respectable run.

Yeah, there's still a lot of the season to air and it's already at a 0.6. I can only imagine where it will be by the spring. The only broadcast show that rated lower than it on all of Tuesday primetime was Legends of Tomorrow.

I still like the show but I wouldn't be sad or surprised if this is the last season, I do think it's run its course for the most part. Which is fine, not every show needs to run for 9 seasons.

This could also work, that's what I thought they were doing when they brought in Ken Marino (and Mantzoukas to a lesser extent) but they didn't change the core dynamic in the long run.

If it is the last season, I hope it doesn't end on a cliffhanger because they want one more season but don't get it.

They know how low the ratings are. Writing is on the wall at this point.

My prediction is that they're doing the proposal wedding storyline to start closing off character's stories because this season is it. It's a good spot to end Jake and Amy's story, and having the final heist in the show have no winner was a solid way to end it. That way we're not left wanting revenge in a future season that will not come.

When you factor in DVR and whatnot, it's typically a case of the rich getting richer and the poor getting a little less poor. Like, Empire is Fox's #1 scripted show in live ratings and also their #1 in L+3, L+7, etc. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of their lower rated shows in live ratings and also one of their lower rated shows in L+3, L+7, etc.
