TV Club: Brooklyn Nine-Nine: “Beach House”
Welcome back, everybody! Welcome back, Brooklyn Nine-Nine! It doesn’t feel like that much time has passed, but hopefully we can all agree to never let it happen again until it’s time for the second season to end. Then we can all throw out all of our “stay cools” and “have a nice summers” the way childhood taught us to.
Speaking in terms of the greater plot, “Beach House” is an “inconsequential” episode of the season. Much like “Stakeout” felt off as a winter break episode (apparently “The Pontiac Bandit Returns” was originally supposed to be the last episode of 2014), “Beach House” feels kind of like an anticlimactic return to the story. It’s not an episode that screams (or even really says) “Hey, did you miss us?” and that’s not typically what one expects with the return of a show from any type of hiatus.
