Cheers & Jeers


by Damian Holbrook

Cheers to Brooklyn Nine-Nine
for breaking and entering new territory. NBC’s goofy cop comedy has given us probable cause to get a little emotional over the bittersweet infertility subplot for married NYPD’ers Amy (Melissa Fumero) and Jake (Andy Samberg). His March 5 speech about them already being a family? A total Nine, maybe even a Ten.

Cheers to Nancy Drew
for uncovering the secret to shocking us all. Just as The CW’s wildly entertaining update of the literary gumshoe closed the case of Dead Lucy with a tragic twist, they snuck in a whopper of a WHAT?! by revealing that Nancy (Kennedy McMann, pictured) was actually the late townie’s secret offspring. It’s no mystery why fans are loving this one.

Jeers to the Tiger King‘s maul rats.
Instead of focusing on the pack of shady, drugged-out lowlifes involved in bringing down zoo-owning oddity Joe Exotic, Netflix’s docu-series could have done his menagerie of caged cats a solid by shedding more light on the abuse that goes on at these roadside atrocities.

Jeers to a long wait for Lucifer.
It’s been 10 months since we saw Tom Ellis’ (pictured) little devil, and with the news that he and the cast have signed on for a possible sixth year, it would be heavenly to know when Season 5 is dropping. It’s what we desire, Netflix!
