Man I laughed a bunch from having Pimento back. I love a short dose of the character every once in a while. I feel like they really don't overuse the shtick, which means when it comes back I'm happy to see it again.

I know Pimento is a semi-divisive character around here; my working theory is that one's level of aversion to Pimento is roughly inverse to one's familiarity with Jason Mantzoukas as a comedy/podcast personality. I appreciate the balancing act that they pull off in this episode, keeping him in that quantum flux between lovable scumbag and actual heel.

I think Brooklyn 99 does a good job with using semi-recurring characters like Pimento and Doug Judy.

I think they overused him for a long time, but I thought he was well used in this episode, all things considered. I am glad we finally saw Amy and Rosa together again, I wish their plot hadn't been about a wedding dress.

But I think I have hit the point where I hope it is cancelled because it is just moving further and further away from what I want, from what it used to be, but I like it enough to want to watch and then I am sad about it.

A little bit of Pimento goes a long way.

I don't really know anything about Jason Mantzoukas, I just think Pimento is annoying.

I'm glad Rosa's getting to show a broader range of emotions.

I absolutely loved the bridal plot. Rosa encourages dress shopping, is dressed in a sea green bridesmaid dress, and then Amy catches a perp? Brilliant! Loved that!


The rest of it was okay.

this was slightly too much pimento for me, as someone who is usually pro-pimento

I was really glad to see the end of the food truck subplot. I found it a bonus that the resolution included Pimento.
