“Hah! Lady Hands!”

BJenny Slate as ‘Bianca’ in “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (S2)rooklyn Nine-Nine returned for its second season this week, and if that wasn’t exciting enough, the opening episode featured a cameo by Jenny Slate as the mistress of a notorious mobster that Jake (Andy Samberg) was attempting to track down while working undercover (and I’m really glad they let us see him in his faux-Mafioso persona for a couple scenes, rather than just cutting straight to his return to the job).

Obviously it’s too early to say whether this show will suffer the so-called “sophomore slump” this year, but I thought this was a very funny (and quotable) episode, that also kept various romantic sub-plots ticking along, and set up the threat of a new potential antagonist for the station staff.* If the writers and cast can maintain this quality/hilarity level for another twenty or so episodes (and I have no reason to doubt that they can), then we should be in for a great season. Hurrah!

* My only complaint would be that there wasn’t enough Diaz… but then I’d probably say the same thing about an episode that was wall-to-wall Diaz! NEVER ENOUGH!!
