It’s fine. And there are some funny moments. But it is really starting to sputter. I’m getting tired of Nikolaj jokes. Amy and Jake are going nowhere. Rosa and Gina are just doing the same old thing. And when you get the sense that Andre Braugher is just spinning his wheels, it’s time for a change. There’s a cool relationship there. Really cool. Not just with him and the precinct, but with him and his man. That’s reduced to a joke about boning. Which is funny. To an extent. And the editing is cute. But you’ve got a supercar in Andre Braugher. Let him take a spin.
Finally, there’s so much you can do with Ken Marino. Good lord. Watch “Party Down” if you don’t believe me. I like the in-the-ear stuff they let him do, but that doesn’t really go anywhere and by and large he’s underused. Come on. Live a little.
Anyway, I still like the show. I just think this season is one of those seasons in a show’s run that’s getting a little stagnant.
About the only thing that has reliable power is Terry Crews. That guy is like a renewable energy source.
