Looking forward to the return of a non-pregnant Amy Santiago. Oh, and the rest of the cast and the humour of the show too.

Can't wait to see how this picks up after the finale.

While there were some funny moments, I missed the rest of the cast.

Yea, I didn't find it all that funny. A few chuckles here and there.

Odd to start off the season with an episode concentrating on only 2 of the characters. Should have thrown in a story line back at the Nine-Nine as well.

Same here. It's definitely an ensemble show. Personally, I wish they wouldn't have such game changing cliffhangers in the finale that get lazily written out in the beginnings of the season (Peralta's mob undercover and Holt's transfer out of the 99 in the previous two seasons). They have to get back to "normal" before long, so why write yourself into a corner in the season finale? This trend of cliffhangers on sitcoms has to end.

While I miss the rest of the cast, I enjoyed the episode. Glad everything wasn't resolved so quickly, and it was fun watching Jake and Holt interact.

I though the premiere was great, even without the rest of the cast. Andre Braugher was hilarious, as usual!

I thought the new captain story was boring... I know there was a line about how they had yet another new captain, but I don't think they did anything interesting with it. I liked Jake and Holt buying guns, and their prison escape.

Did Rosa look weird to everyone else too? Her face seemed thinner or something, with lots of make up on too.

Yeah, I definitely noticed that. I looked her up and her recent photos don't really look that different so I'm not sure what was up with how she looked in that episode.

I was hoping the Figgis stuff would be more interesting/satisfying then it actually was. Looking forward to going back to normal.

It was definitely the make-up artist. They did something especially weird to her eyes, but also the other women. Didn't notice it as much in the third episode.

Looking forward to seeing the Nine-Nine have night shift!

The New Girl cross-over feels like a bad idea.

Yeah, but it was still a satisfying way to get out of the corner they painted themselves into last season. They addressed the situation and did not just write it off the way they did the last two seasons. Sure, Figgis didn't seem like much of a master criminal, but this ain't Law and Order. It's a comedy. Hell, they had Holt removing a bar he'd been impaled on and sewing the wound himself.

The show works best with the whole cast together. And I'm looking forward to the night shift.

I was hardly expecting Law & Order type seriousness at all, I simply meant that after referencing the character for so long in a fairly long story arc, as well as having a fairly recognizable actor in Eric Roberts, that they would have done something funnier or wackier with him. I loved Holt pulling the pipe out of his leg.

Love the heists for Halloween.

The New Girl crossover was disappointing, barely anything there except that brief moment with Jess.

Halloween episode was fantastic.

The Halloween episode felt like a return to form for the show, and I liked how all the characters had a chance to shine (Rosa's I am all in for the next 9 hours do your nerd thing comment to Amy was awesome).

For me, the Pimento character just throws off the balance of the show. i don't know why they brought him back.
