Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Hitchcock and Scully: An appreciation
Sure, Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller's characters are "paragons of mediocrity who failed upward and are living in a changed world they can’t fully understand," says Marissa Martinelli. "But they work so well on the show because they occupy a middle ground between the two, neither villains nor saints, just buffoons. It helps that there are two of them, too: Their colleagues might be cruel and their home lives might be a mess, but Hitchcock and Scully always have each other—and, as it turns out, they’re happy to be underestimated together." ALSO: Stephanie Beatriz finds it hilarious that the bisexual woman on Brooklyn Nine-Nine is the "straight man."

Why Brooklyn Nine-Nine devoted an episode to Hitchcock and Scully
The backstory of Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller's characters were finally addressed in Thursday's episode. “There were several ideas,” says co-creator Dan Goor, adding that the episode "felt very true to their characters." Blocker, meanwhile, noted that he and Miller didn't think their characters would ever become front and center. “We weren’t regulars in the beginning,” he said. “They didn’t know whether this was going to work or not, nor did we. We were just thrilled every week we got asked to come back.”

Brooklyn Nine-Nine delivers its best viewership in two years with NBC debut
About 3.56 million total viewers watched last night's Season 6 premiere -- up 82% from last season's premiere on Fox. That's the best viewership since Jan. 1, 2017, when the then-Fox comedy received a boost from an NFL game. Demo-wise, Brooklyn Nine-Nine improved on timeslot predecessor Will & Grace by 50%. Brooklyn Nine-Nine also had NBC's best same-day rating for a Thursday comedy this season. The Good Place, paired with Brooklyn Nine-Nine for the first time, returned to 2.8 million viewers, which is on par with its fall ratings.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine on NBC is just as goofy, warm, fast-moving, and funny as ever
Judging from the first two episodes of Season 6, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has made a successful transition after being canceled at Fox. "Even better, the new season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine seems to be doing exactly what any show in its sixth season should do," says Kathryn VanArendonk. "It’s not reinventing itself whole cloth, but it does look like the writers asked themselves how best to use this gift of more time, and what else Brooklyn Nine-Nine might have to say about the world right now." She notes that Brooklyn Nine-Nine is "more out loud about what it means to be a cop show in 2019. It’s a noticeable choice for the show, which could so easily have pivoted straight toward a greatest-hits plan for this sixth season. Thank goodness it didn’t."
- Brooklyn Nine-Nine is starting to explicitly address the elephant in the room: that it's a cop show when police brutality is a hot-button issue

“It sounds cliché but I feel like you will laugh and cry, which I think is the ideal combination of an exit for Gina Linetti,” Peretti told reporters on Tuesday at a Brooklyn Nine-Nine event. “She’s very physical. There’s a lot of very silly things that she gets to do in these episodes. But then there’s also some really emotional, connecting scenes with her family and her friends.”

Peretti will depart sometime during Season 6. She is expected to return in a guest capacity. “B99 fans. Hiiiiiiiiiiii. Chelsea Peretti, here,” she wrote in a series of tweets. “I won’t be doing a full season of Brooklyn Nine Nine in Season 6. But that doesn’t mean I won’t ever be back, winky face emoji, heart emoji. I want to thank you for the hours you spent watching Gina be Gina: confident, idiotic-but-smart, pithy, and infused with rhythm and cell-phone radiation. It is hard for me to know exactly what to say.” Peretti then opted to post Emmy Rossum's exit statement from Shameless, tweeting: “Perhaps Emmy Rossum said it best when she wrote about Shameless (I bolded the extra relevant parts in her quote below).” Co-creator Dan Goor released a statement on Twitter confirming that Peretti's character will not be killed off. “I know for a fact that this isn’t the last we’ll see of Gina Linetti,” Goor said in the statement. “I mean, she got run over by a frickin’ bus, and she only missed like a week of work.”
