Brooklyn Nine-Nine: The Fugitive, Part 1
January 2, 2017 3:43 PM - Season 4, Episode 11 - Subscribe

It's time for a two-part Brooklyn Nine-Nine fall finale event! Nine dangerous and desperate fugitives have escaped from a crashed prison van, and the Nine-Nine are on their trail.

Jake and Amy make a bet for old times' sake: Whoever nabs more escapees gets to keep their apartment and have the other move in. Meanwhile, Holt and Diaz try their best to get useful info out of the witnesses on the scene, including tight-lipped guest star Marshawn "Beast Mode" Lynch.

Marshawn Lynch? How did I not know this? Well, it will have to wait until I'm back from my trip.

Does he have lines? Or is his legendary reticence part of the joke?

Oops, got too excited and posted before reading the "more inside." I'll give up five yards for a false start.

The first 22 minutes of content were fantastic! I couldn't breathe! and then it kept going, and I realized that part of the reason B99 works is that the episodes are short. This long format does. not. work.

I don't know, I thought the front and back halves of "The Fugitive" worked well enough as distinct episodes, even if they weren't specifically aired that way. (Hulu has them as a single ~44 minute chunk, but the official episode numbering is 411/412.) The first segues directly into the second, and I feel like there's enough delineation between the Jake/Amy office-bet plot and the Jake/Holt/Doug Judy 48 Hrs. plot that it'll be easy enough to separate them for syndication and/or DVD. (I wonder if they shot an extra cold open for the beginning of Part 2?)
