Keep watching, but what the hell made this show??? I guess recognizing all of that makes me old or having seen Airplane! Edited January 28, 2016 by Conan Troutman. There's something about the show's willingness to please that gets me, and I think it's a lot of fun. I found the pilot to be a lame start to a series that definitely gets better, but never rises to what it should be. They will do anything for a laugh on this show, and easily at least once per every five seconds if not more , and I kind of loved that. But gobsmacking didn't occur, because of the faint whiff of familiarity about the enterprise. The over the top chase scene was great.
Either way, it's usually executed well enough to make me giggle. But gobsmacking didn't occur, because of the faint whiff of familiarity about the enterprise. It could be set anywhere. I also like the cameos. I also probably should have paused to read all the tattoos. And everyone being so deadpan all the time just feels stale. Or the Hot Shots movies.
One thing that I find a lot of fun about the show is trying to guess the jokes. It has already been renewed. I liked it just fine. I really enjoyed the show. As people have pointed out, this is reminiscent of Naked Gun not B99 so its not groundbreaking. I've just watched the pilot, and I'll have to say, I laughed a lot.
That's a show that just happens to be a cop show. I miss the silliness of Airplane! Of course that's not saying much, but still. After awhile, as with the Zuckers and Mel Brooks, I was laughing just as much at the lame jokes that failed as I was at the clever ones that connected. Also, thank god for cable and streaming. She practices her knife-throwing and punching, and then pouts on her police equipment and leaves for work past her target providers. I loved it much more than what I thought I would! It's not that it's bad, because it isn't. I thought the best part was Alfred Molina and the chase scene.
I'm just saying that if Brooklyn Nine-Nine didn't exist, I would have been gobsmacked by Angie Tribeca. This even wholesale lifts jokes straight from Naked Gun and Airplane with no addition of anything new. Edited January 18, 2016 by Racj82 So it's sort of juvenile humor but we laughed heartily. I'm not through the full season yet but this is really working for me as a show. But, on cable, that is less of an issue. The woman asks them to help her up, but they cover her over with… Guest Cast. Airplane was so damn funny way back when because it was fresh.
I look forward to even more episodes by the end of the month. There were also a lot of bits that went on waaaay tooooo long, long enough to realize they weren't that funny to begin with. I'd say the show is over-hyped but it's hard humor to get right. There are too many jokes and sight gags crammed into a short space of time. Someone getting a pie in the face or slipping on a banana peel can still be funny if done well. There are all sorts of gags that could have been done even from Police Squad , but weren't, and there was plenty of room for them. Whenever I looked in again I saw the same things that made my attention wander.
Not hard if I'm really into a show but if I'm uncertain. Hope there's a season 2! It's different from Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but. Based on the description, I wasn't sure if I was going to watch this even though I do like Rashida Jones. Maybe it's because I've seen just about everything in this genre. Sure it's silly but it's a silly that makes me laugh. Some of them are the exact same jokes - the man hands showing up during the boxing sequence; the drawings in art class; the offering of more and more elaborate food from the Mayor's wife.
And I laughed every single time the Ford advertisement flashed on screen. I made it through a couple of episodes, but lost interest for a while. The characters will say something that I can tell will lead to a joke and sometimes I can guess what they're going to do with it and sometimes not. We only watched the pilot but liked it so far. I really enjoyed the show. I'm just saying that if Brooklyn Nine-Nine didn't exist, I would have been gobsmacked by Angie Tribeca. You weren't kidding about the lifting of Zucker Abrams Zucker gags.
Monica Scholls, tells her that an old woman was found lying dead on the street. There were so many little things going on that I just kept cracking up. Did they just kidnap Mike Schur, Friedberg and Seltzer, toss 'em in a joke blender and release it upon the public? It's too jokey and old school to survive. Some of it was too jokey, but the little things kept me interested. I just don't see this at all. Partly because that charcoal drawing was so fantastic--it meant that somebody really good who works for the show had to draw this amazing piece of art just for one freakin' gag. They somehow got rid of most crappy jokes and now it's legit funny.
I really enjoyed the show. I liked all the tiny little things that you had to be really paying attention to catch. Why is his name funny? I don't think the comedy feels outdated but then I'm not someone who thinks great comedy ever really goes out of style. It's completely silly in the best possible way. But gobsmacking didn't occur, because of the faint whiff of familiarity about the enterprise. Geils Band 80s -- Centerfold; Freeze Frame; Love Stinks; etc. .
