Angie Tribeca: The season after the first
June 7, 2016 9:10 AM - Season 2 (Full Season) - Subscribe

Previously on Angie Tribeca: she gets a new partner and stuff happened. One year later: more stuff happens.

Angie Tribeca is a Police Squad! style rapid-firing comedy featuring Rashida Jones as the titular character, Hayes MacArthur as her partner, Deon Cole as a fellow detective, Jere Burns as their boss and Andrée Vermeulen as the medical examiner.

First ep seemed a little less overstuffed with jokes, but the pin at the beginning was one of the best such bits in the history of the genre.

One of these days I'm counting how many gags they put on a random episode. I love that they kept going the same ZAZ path of throwing so many jokes even if one of them is stale, there's like three more in the next 60 seconds.

My inner 13-year old loves this. And me too.

(Oh, and Alfred Molina is still on the show. I though he wasn't returning)

I thought it had been canceled.
Yay for new season.

I thought it had been canceled.

S2 was ordered before the S1 premiere.

Is this available for streaming on TBS? Can't check from work. Trying to watch the second half of the first season after it left On Demand was a pain in my butt, though.

S1 isn't on at the moment. It's on Hulu Plus.

That explains it. I'm in a Netflix household, so I didn't even think of checking Hulu.

Angie is a Netflix household, and still has two DVDs from like 2007 somewhere in her partment,
Jay has Hulu because of The Mindy Project.
Scholls has Amazon Prime but constantly forgets about how she meant to watch Transparent.
Lieutenant Atkins has cable, but really only watches ESPN anyway.
Tanner and Hoffman don't own a TV, but they aren't dicks about it. They mostly play board games on the weekends.

I was very dismissive of AT when I saw the first couple of episodes but I'm glad I stuck with it. I lol'd when Angie sneezed out her eyeballs.

My favorite visual gag so far was Atkins was getting a message in his office while having an intense discussion with his officers. We see the standard low-angle shot of the chief with his face cradled in the head support of the massage table. Then we cut to the reverse shot of Angie, Jay and Tanner laying on the ground directly below him, inches away from his face. So ridiculous.

"Can I have the room? ... Tribeca, Geils, get in here!"

I have used this joke twice already IRL, and my subordinates are starting to avoid waiting in my office when I'm not there. So, win-win.

Second half of Season 1 is back on On Demand, at least if you have Comcast.

The scene with the twins in the latest episode is one of the reasons I love this so much.

Lieutenant Weinberg, ha.

Not meant to be definitive, but here are some of the musical references I noted during a binge watch, mostly character names:

Lt. Pritikin "Chet" Atkins
Det. Jay Warren* Geiles
Dr. Edelweiss
Mayor Joe Perry
Special Agent Laurie Partridge
Wilson Phillips
Gene Simmons (himself)
Quincy Jones (himself)

Ep 2: "Stop. Hammer time."

Ep 3: Baby Angie has music class
Brad Wilson (I googled, and there's a blues musician with that name)

Ep 4: Agent Diane Duran

Ep 5: ringtones: Geils: Tubthumping; Tanner: This Is How We Do It; Hoffman: Regulate (by Warren G and Nate Dogg!)

Initials "RT" possibilities include "Ruby Tuesday" (Bonus: I googled the name "Ralph Taters." You're welcome.)

Ep 6: Mr Fibonacci (Maybe? There was an 80s LA band called The Fibonaccis.)

Spoiler: E7 is called "Boyz II Dead"

Other misc notes:

"I'm sorry, Tribeca, Internal Affairs has me by the nuts. 'Buy your own nuts,' I always say but they have me by the balls."

The week-old cold case is why I love this show so much.

*Middle name appeared on baby Angie's birth certificate and Google confirms that is actually J Geiles's middle name

Lieutenant Weinberg, ha.

One of the funniest cameos ever.

The logline for episode 8: A member of the Coast Guard is murdered, leading Tribeca and Geils to somehow connect it to Mayhem Global.

That is funnier than most TV comedies.

The incidental music in the graphic designer episode is outstanding.

Oh, hey, if you were thinking to yourself, "Gee, I wish TBS had similar show with fewer jokes starring Zach Galifinaikis and Ryan Reynolds and spoofing Lost instead of cop procedurals" then check out Wrecked. It's pretty funny.
posted by Room 641-A at 6:35 PM on August 6, 2016

Wrecked got 350 percent better when they dumped (most of) the Lost parody aspect after the first two or three eps.

Love the fact that Peggy Lipton appeared in the final episode.

They removed S1 from OnDeman but I think her dad, "Q" is in E1.

Was that a giant photo of Jonathan Taylor Thomas in Angie's jailhouse chart?! Did I miss a JTT reference earlier in the show or is it just wonderfully random?

I'm very sad it's over but I thought they did a great job this season. I'm finding it surprisingly rewatchable even from someone who watches each episode multiple times.

I'm finally catching up with this show. I just wanted to say that Jere Burns is a freaking treasure.

And the dog always cracks me up.

The lifeguard episode was fantastic.

because I can't find this in a nice list anywhere else, I'm making my own, here:

All of season 2 long form episode summary, through Hulu Plus:

Episode 1: Fleas Don't Kill Me
A man is found dead in a dog park, but a finally healthy Lieutenant Atkins doesn't think Tribeca's ready to take the case. Why? Because Tribeca hates dogs. And also she's just woken up from a year-long coma.

Episode 2: Miso Dead
Tensions flare between Tribeca and Scholls after the skull of a missing sushi chef is fished out of the ocean. Why? Because they're in a love triangle with Geils. It actually has very little to do with the case.

Episode 3: Beach Blanket Sting-O
After a string of suspicious drownings, Geils goes undercover with the LA Lifeguards; however, Tribeca becomes worried. Why? She thinks he might be in too deep. He's never been that strong a swimmer, and the currents are deceivingly strong.

Episode 4: You've Got Blackmail
Some sort of massive conspiracy is set in motion when a less-than-savory dating website is hacked. Why? Hard to say exactly. Motives seem a little vague. Heather Graham cameos though. She's pretty good.

Episode 5: A Coldie But a Goodie
Tribeca can't shake the feeling that the cause of a 102-year-old's death isn't as natural as others believe, but her concerns fall on deaf ears. Why? She's on probation after that whole data breach snafu. Also something about an election…?

Episode 6: The Organ Trail
Atkins assigns a romance novelist to aid Geils and Tribeca in their attempt to bust an organ thief at a local hospital. Why? Why not? Does anything have to make sense anymore? Or can shows just do whatever they want with no explanation?

Episode 7: Boyz II Dead
Geils and Tanner investigate the mysterious death of a reunited boy band member while Tribeca finally meets with Sgt. Pepper. Why? Seemingly, he's connected to Mayhem Global but what is Mayhem Global and why do they keep bringing it up?

Episode 8: The Coast Is Fear
A member of the Coast Guard is murdered and somehow Tribeca and Geils connect it to Mayhem Global. Why? What is the point of all of this? What is it all leading to?

Episode 9: Contains Graphic Designer Violence
When a graphic designer is found dead, all evidence points to Tribeca. Why?! What does it mean?! It's just needless cliffhanger after needless cliffhanger with absolutely no accountability for narrative satisfaction!

Episode 10: Electoral Dysfunction
The thrilling conclusion to season two. Every question answered. Every twist explained. A logically and emotionally gratifying finale that is sure to silence all critics and guarantee a third season.
