"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" shows every sign of being a really good sitcom. Well, every sign but one.
There's too much Andy Samberg in Tuesday's premiere (7:30 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13).
That may sound strange, given that Samberg ("Saturday Night Live") is the star of the show. At least nominally.
But this is an ensemble comedy about a team of NYPD detectives, and his character, Jake Peralta, sort of seems dropped in from some other show.
"B99" comes to us from a pair of former "Parks and Recreation" writers/producers, Dan Goor and Mike Schur, and there's a certain similar sensibility, sort of. It's a team of eclectic characters who are adapting to the arrival of a new boss, by-the-book Capt. Ray Holt (Andre Braugher). Most of the pilot episode is wry and funny and sort of understated.<
