Review

A highlight of this jaunty cop comedy’s first series was the Halloween special, which saw Andy Samberg’s childish detective Jake Peralta finally get one over on the dour and masterful Captain Holt (Andre Baugher) with a double-bluff bet to steal his medal of honour. Now it’s round two – and Holt isn’t messing around this time.

Revisiting such a successful premise could be risky, but B99 manages to pull it off with some more fun misdirection and reimagining of cop show tropes – and without giving the ending away, there’s a great pay-off to Holt and Peralta’s friendly rivalry.

Summary

It's Halloween again, and this time Peralta bets Holt he can steal his treasured watch before midnight, enlisting criminal assistance to achieve his goal. Gina struggles to keep up with her college course, perform a full-time job and attend dance rehearsals - leading to problems both in and out of work.
