They definitely did a good job doing a show with a lot of callbacks without doing a clip show. And it wasn’t overly sappy.
I love this show and I’m really going to miss it! It was a real shame that they only did 8 episodes over 4 weeks. It went by SO fast.
I have a hard time getting my friends into this show. Everyone I asked said they “just couldn’t get into it.” I know Andy Samberg could be a turn-off if you’re just familiar with his SNL stuff and didn’t like his SNL performance (I was hesitant myself) but he really did an excellent job.
I don’t know why you wouldn’t tune in just to see Andre Braugher in a comedic role, tbh. But then my friends weren’t familiar with his previous roles either (except my brother was a big fan of Homicide but he STILL wouldn’t watch B99!)
Jo Lo Truglio, Terry Crewes, Chelsea Paretti, “the guys who played Hitchcock and Scully”… legends. We came to know Stephanie Beatriz and Melissa Fumero, who knocked it out of the park.
Maybe this will become a “cult hit.” IMHO there is not one bad episode. It’s miles better than, say, The Big Bang Theory. Not even in the same boat as far as comedy goes.
Anyway, I’ll miss it.
