Love Letter To: Brooklyn 99

22 September 2018

  I understand that this is a weird time to write about this particular subject, that it might have been more pertinent to talk about the importance on Brooklyn 99 earlier this year, when it was dramatically cancelled and then uncancelled, or later, when season 6 comes out. But it was coming back to University […]
