‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Premiered on FOX: Re-live it with Our Reads for Rosa

in Potpourri by

With her dark hair and pink highlights, she’s mysterious, secretive, and highly intelligent. Last night, Rosa Diaz and the cast of Brooklyn Nine-Nine returned to FOX. After last season’s twisting finale that no one saw coming, we’re all looking forward to seeing what Jake and Rosa will be up to! Despite the predicament that they find themselves in now, we’re sure it will be every bit as hilarious as the previous seasons. Season 5 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine returns to Fox on September 26th. Played for four seasons now by Stephanie Beatriz, Rosa is not only the toughest on the show, but notoriously hard to read.

Captain Raymond Holt (played by Andre Braugher, the actor who cornered the market on gravitas) is a no-nonsense commander who just happens to be married to a male university professor. Detective Sgt.

in Fiction by

Fans of Jonesin’ know that we here at the BookTrib Nerd Squad love our TV shows and the books that inspire them. Like you, we often commiserate that our favorite shows and actors don’t get the credit they deserve. So for this edition of Jonesin’, we’re taking matters into our own hands and choosing the actor or TV show that we feel is most deserving of praise and the golden statue. You can find predictions elsewhere—here’s what we love. Word Nerd says – In some categories it’s just too hard to choose favorites. The Daily Show or The Colbert Report? I love them both and always hope for some impromptu misbehavior from them and their co-nominees during the Emmys. Or,…
