Doing a full-on crossover would require all of the cast to work literally double their normal hours. In the meantime, Holt tries to increase office morale and Amy wants to know why Rosa is taking such long breaks. It's the same reason I only have one full-time job and can't just spontaneously pick up another for a week. Description As Jake struggles with his first case back at the precinct, he encounters Jess Day, who is visiting New York, and enlists her to help him find his suspect. Either way this crossover was way over hyped, but I guess it did sound more exciting on paper. They're not going to begin crash zooming in on all the characters - it's not this show.
Not having Schmidt and Jake Peralta interact? That changes when Ray Holt, a man with a lot to prove, becomes the new commanding officer of Brooklyn's 99th precinct. The writers definitely made it sound like there would be an overarching storyline that spanned both shows. As Holt reminds Peralta to respect the badge, an extremely competitive colleague - Detective Amy Santiago - starts to close in on the hotshot cop's arrest record. Took way better advantage though, even if it was gimmicky. Meanwhile, Holt researches ways to increase office morale and Amy tries to figure out why Rosa keeps taking such long breaks.
Guest Starts : Zooey Deschanel, Neil Campbell. I thought you meant the crossover was better in the 99 episode, but you meant the opposite, which was basically what I was trying to say. Detective Jake Peralta, a talented and carefree cop with the best arrest record, has never had to follow the rules too closely or work very hard. Other members of the precinct include Sgt Terry Jeffords, a devoted family man, Detective Charles Boyle, a hard worker who idolizes Jake, and Rosa Diaz, a sexy-yet-intimidating detective. The conflict intersected for the most menial of reasons - it feels like Fox told them they needed to crossover so they just mashed characters from each others shows into already written scripts. Presumably, the shows film on a somewhat simultaneous schedule in different studios, and the cast has other business and personal stuff planned outside of work hours. Holt and Jess' conversation never showed them in camera together and felt awkwardly paced, and the low angle with Gina was clearly because they couldn't get the rest of the 99 in the room.
. I would have loved it if the casts of both shows interacted. For those interested New Girl's subreddit can be found. I enjoyed the B99 episode, but the crossover was a total disappointment after all this build-up. Jess could have been replaced by some other quirky weird character like Fred Armisen's Mlepnos for example. But overall, super lazy crossover. Boyle could have been replaced by some other enthusiastic New Yorker, and Jess could have had a conversation with some bizarre New York cops who have bigger issues to deal with.
But that's also partly because only Jess from New Girl showed up on B99 and she's also the least funny character from that show. Edit: Forget about it, I read that wrong. There was more of an actual crossover in New Girl, whereas it was pretty much a Zooey Deschanel cameo in Brooklyn 99. . . .
