The Roller-coaster ride of Brooklyn 99
The critically acclaimed police procedural comedy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine didn’t get it easy. The series was shelved by Fox that originally aired it on its network. Produced as a single-camera comedy, the show performed average on the network. The following day of cancelation, Brooklyn 99 was picked by NBC for season 6.
According to NBC, season 6 averaged 1.2 ratings and 3.2 million live viewers which is a double-digit growth in performance. After 35 days of linear performance and delayed viewing, B99 grew to 3.1 rating in the 18-49 category and 6.4 million viewers in total.
The show is currently airing its 7th season and the mid-season finale will release on 26th March 2020. The seventh episode titled Ding Dong ended with Amy eventually finding out that she is pregnant.
It is due to its immense popularity and critical recognition that Brooklyn 99 got the early renewal for season 8. The series is particularly loved for laughing on situations and not on a person especially of the minority communities. Most comedies indulge in cheap humor by making fun of the LGBTQ+ community for instant gratification. The inclusive cast of Brooklyn 99 portrays sensitive issues with care and also by not losing the sense of humor.
One such humorous incident happened in Episode 6 of season 7 that involved Mr. Hitchcock.
Will detective Hitchcock get eighth time lucky on Brooklyn 99?
Season 7’s sixth episode kicked off at Hitchcock’s divorce party where he meets his potential Wife number 8. She is just perfect- beautiful, funny and no scars.
But there is one small problem. The woman left her phone number on a napkin that Hitchcock spoiled. Now he is left lingering in the memory of the magical night.
Series co-creator Dan Goor told TVLine—
“It’s a tale as old as time: A man dates a woman, loses her phone number, and has only her tooth. It’s a story we’ve always wanted to tell, and we finally get to tell it.”
On knowing about his friend’s misery, Scully encourages Hitchcock to not lose hope.
No worries, finding her would be a smooth sail!
He says, “We just have to try fitting that tooth into the mouth of every woman in New York City until we find the matching gum hole of your one true love,”
