We’re finally here! The NCAA has wrapped up its tournament, and Screen Scholars has, too. Skate your way below to the break to see which show won.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine won with 71 percent of the vote. I asked Jason to say a few words about the NBC comedy’s win:
A mere cancellation cannot bring down a behemoth of comedy like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and it in fact barely phased it. As the sixth season started, Lt. Holt was reeling from losing the commish post to his archrival John Kelly — so much so, he crashed Jake and Amy’s resort honeymoon and it’s all been uphill as in hilarity since (and that felt like a perfect awkward Peralta joke… or Holt… or Amy). What was once an Andy Samberg vehicle has morphed into something grander, with the complex universe to rival co-creator Michael Schur’s other shows Parks & Rec and The Good Place (and I’m still mourning the loss of a chance at a Schur vs. Schur finals).
Though Brooklyn Nine-Nine won with a large margin, Good Trouble started out strong and had the lead for much of the period for which voting was open. It was a long, arduous fight between two very good shows with unexpectedly dedicated followings!
Thank you to everyone who voted!
