Admin's Note: Only six more episodes to air over here, but glad a second series has been comissioned. Melissa Fumero i've seen in shows before. I know this because i've looked on her Wiki page. I don't remember her in any of them though so calling her my hottest newcomer to TV in 2014 so far LOL It's rare in a show that every character is good. Usually even in the best shows you can see it being just as good if a certain someone left. In this though there is genuinely nobody who is annoying to watch. Although it took a few episodes to get used to Jake despite the show being based around him.

Yeah I really like this show, it's probably the best of a strong comedy line-up on E4 on Thursdays.

I've always enjoyed watching Andy Samberg who has appeared in various comedy based films and TV shows, he actually was the main character in the first series of Brit comedy Cuckoo.
I love the scenes with Samberg and the really dead pan Captain, they bounce off each other well.

They get a strong supporting cast which includes Terry Crews of Expendables fame.

The 1st season only finished a few weeks ago and I miss it already.

I like that they have a couple of clifhangers ready for season 2 like Jake telling Amy he likes her and him faking being sacked from his job for part of a sting.

I hope for season 2 there is less of a gap between an episode airing stateside and here.

Season two has been commissioned and hopefully won't be too far away, this is easily the best US sitcom to come off the production line in quite a while.
Will definitely miss it on Thursday nights, all that's left on that night now is How I Met Your Mother and this series has become dull and way too drawn out.

Brooklyn 99, Brooklyn Nine Nine and #RenewB99 all trending in the United Kingdom because those Fox Fuckers have cancelled it!!!!!

No more Melissa Fumero fix Cry It's still funny, without being too offensive and covers so many different types of people (straight, gay, Mexican, Bi etc).

Really hope another network picks it up to make a new series of it. Even the cast have tweeted to save it.

I’m surprised, I thought this show had mileage in it yet and would get at least a seven season run which seems to be the norm for most long running tv shows.

It’s one of the best sitcoms of recent times, probably my favourite since Two and a Half Men(during the Sheen era wasn’t a fan of the Kutcher version).

Given its popularity and the online backlash to the Fox cancellation I would say there’s a very good chance a new network will rescue it. Netflix is maybe a good shout as previous seasons are already on there.

I can see Netflix keeping it going. I love the show and the best character by a far is Boyle, closely followed by Terry when he speaks in the third person.

Hope it does get picked up by either Netflix or Amazon
Y'know what?....It's really fucking hot here in Africa. Who knew?....Well me, I have been doing this for almost 5 years

Good news, boys. Andy Samberg sent out this tweet:

Was hearing talk that Hulu was considering picking it up but then passed. Looks like NBC decided to jump on the chance.

Great news. All the cast tweeting how delighted they are and I hope it continues to run, until it stops being funny.

Hopefully on the new network it will get shown quicker over here on E4, as we are way behind American coverage of the current season.

The season can't stop until Boyle and Rosa get married LOL

Great news. As Adders said this show is still funny and the characters still have a lot of mileage, it has not yet become repetitive or unfunny like many sitcoms previously - Two and a Half Men and Friends spring to mind.

NBC have picked it up for a sixth season but I hope it goes for a couple more at least after that.
