A Bookish Ode to Brooklyn Nine Nine

(Ed. note: Brooklyn Nine Nine was later saved by NBC, thank goodness.)

In case you missed it, yesterday FOX axed fan-favorite Brooklyn Nine Nine after five seasons. And the internet (rightfully) exploded.

If you’re not familiar with the show, B99 follows the fictional 99 police precinct in New York City. The group of officers is super diverse, with a variety of races, ethnic backgrounds, and sexual orientations all POSITIVELY represented. If you haven’t watched, this show is seriously a gem. It’s even a favorite among fellow Rioters.

Because of its diverse cast, the show caught the eye of many authors, who also expressed their outrage yesterday:

The show is already reportedly being eyed for resurrection by Netflix and Hulu, but just in case they don’t do the right thing, I wanted to send off this show in style and remember some of their best bookish moments over the seasons.

…I’ve never related to a character more

…Charles Boyle, King of Puns

…when Amy made the ultimate sacrifice to catch a criminal

via GIPHY

…when they used names from The Babysitters Club as code names and no one even made fun of Amy 🙂

via GIPHY

…when Jake loved Amy so much he started reading Harry Potter *cries*

..and finally, when Jake tried to lure Amy to running away with him.
