Much like the actual cast, the cops of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” do an excellent job. Perhaps a little too good.
Detective Jake Peralta’s (Andy Samberg) rag-tag crew is so proficient, as a matter of fact, that the crime rate in their borough is down significantly, Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) tells the team in Tuesday’s spring premiere. That earns a well-deserved round of applause from the room — but it’s not all positive.
With fewer criminal activities, the borough of Brooklyn will be shuttering down one of its precincts for good, Holt warns. His Nine-Nine feels pretty good about its chances of survival — that is, until the official auditor turns out to be Amy’s (Melissa Fumero’s) ex-boyfriend, Teddy (guest star Kyle Bornheimer). Let’s just say they had a rough breakup. And let’s just also say that it was pretty much Jake’s fault.
