Dialogues, music and direction
Talking about the dialogues!!!!!!!!!!! Yes the dialogues hold this show so firmly because it’s just full of humorous, sarcasm and emotions which makes this show engaging and engrossing. It’s music is funky and cool especially with Jake Peralta and Doug Judy. What to say about direction, it’s beyond perfection. Perfectly created and executed. This finale is a ride of all emotions and love.
Andy Samberg as Jake Peralta is apple of my eye. Melissa Fumero as Amy Santiago is smart, caring and adorable. Stephanie as Rosa Diaz is as hot as chilly. Joe Lo Truglio as Charles Boyle is cute, caring and Jake’s biggest fan. Andre Braugher as Captain Holt is a perfect Daptain to their precinct. Terry Crews as Terry himself is strong, powerful and brilliant. Joel McKinnon and Dirk Blocker as Scully and Hitchcock are a bundle of joy. The other supporting cast is also great and did amazing work during all these 8 seasons.
This last ride is hella emotional, sentimental and heart warming. You’ll gonna cry so hard, feel emotional arousal and heart thumping. Na na not just dolorous, this last ride will make you happy, joyful, giggle and glad. A perfect watch for all time. Adios to my favourite show. End of an era.
