Brooklyn nine nine : Iconic B99 cold opens you may or may not remember!


The only right words to define Brooklyn Nine Nine. One of the only shows that talk about the complexities of life in the most humorous way possible. From epic Halloween heists and to episodes talking about racial inequalities, the show has delivered some great stories over a total of seven seasons. Season 8 is currently in the works.

Here are some of the iconic cold-opens from Brooklyn Nine Nine -

1. Season 5, Episode 17 When Jake made the suspects sing I want it that way.

If someone sings “now, number 5” during I want it that way by Backstreet boys, you know they’re a Brooklyn 99 fan. This scene has its own separate fan-base. ICONIC!

2.Season 4, Episode 7 When the squad did impressions of Captain Holt.

“Who here does the best impression of Captain Raymond Holt? You’ll be judged on voice, body language and overall lack of flair.”

3. Season 1, Episode 21

Caption Holt turning up with a sprained wrist causing chaos in the squad, even more chaos for Jake when he told him the reason was hoopla-hooping knowing no one would believe him.
