Happy Halloween! The gang at the precinct on Brooklyn Nine-Nine have a tradition. Every year there is a fierce competition between Holt and Peralta (Andre Braugher and Andy Samberg). The winner is crowned “King of the 99.” The loser has to call the other, “an amazing detective/genius.” The first year, Jake won, the second… Holt. This is the year that truly decides king.

One of the many, many things I love about Brooklyn Nine-Nine is the way they make their silly, incredibly funny, and often immature antics into a 99% believable (albeit short) police procedural. Okay, so I’m not an expert on how detectives solve crimes. I’m sure it’s not as entertaining as Brooklyn Nine-Nine, or even Law & Order. But despite the ridiculousness wrapped in puns wrapped in awesomeness, the crew at 99 still solve cases, and show the evidence used. The way the characters play off each other is perfect chemistry. Tonight’s episode of “Boyle’s Hunch” highlights the buddy cop dynamic of Peralta and Boyle (Andy Samberg and Joe Lo Truglio).

Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Season 3 Episode 2: “The Funeral”
Directed by Claire Scanlon

Created by Daniel J Goor, Michael Schur
Starring Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Stephanie Beatriz, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Chelsea Peretti, Dirk Blocker, Joel McKinnon Miller, Terry Crews

Air Date: Sunday, October 4th, 2015, 8:30pm

Last week‘s Brooklyn Nine-Nine came back strong for their 3rd season. Holt (Andre Braugher) and the 99th Precinct are still apart, but that doesn’t mean the laughs have to stop. Jake and Amy (Andy Samberg and Melissa Fumero) decided to keep things casual (you know-after the kiss), with Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) almost on to them, until Jake makes up an imaginary gym floozy. Things escalate much further. Wunch (guest star Kyra Sedgwick) delights in the PR position torture of Holt. He ends up in a pigeon costume, yet still dignified. At least he has Gina (Chelsea Peretti). Bill Hader guested last week as the “New Captain,” but quickly died. Does not take a rocket scientist to figure out who “The Funeral” of this week is for. And that is what this episode is about – comedy against a funeral backdrop. Fun!

A couple of spoilers below. Proceed with caution!

The 99th Precinct shenanigans are back! Brooklyn Nine-Nine begins its 3rd hilariously hysterical season at the exact moment season 2 ended – with the elevator door opening. The gang was awaiting their new captain. That’s right. Madeline Wunch (guest star Kyra Sedgwick) finally got Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) into her witchy clutches, in the guise of a PR promotion. Gina (Chelsea Peretti) went with him (noooooo!!!!!). Peralta and Diaz (Andy Samberg and Melissa Fumero) finally kissed (yayyyyy!!!!).

Possible spoilers of tonight’s episode – proceed with caution below.
