First of all welcome September! I’m kinda glad August is over because it was a depressing month for me! I hope the mood will not spoil my September! One of the worst thing about August is that, I only went to the cinema once to watch The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which is pretty entertaining. Other than that, nothing much. As for September, there are few movies I set my eyes on.
Ally’s to watch September movies:
- Mrs. K (7th)
- It (7th)
- Kingsman: The Golden Circle (21st)
- The Foreigner (28th)
Also, Golden Screen Cinemas is hosting the Japanese Film Festival 2017 in their cinema. I’m not going unless I find someone who enjoys Japanese movies. Yes, I need a partner for it… and watching It too. I can’t stand horror movie but It is the reason I’m scared of clowns.
Okay, enough about my September plan. Let’s jump into the main point of the day! Brooklyn Nine Nine!
Have you been looking for a comedy to watch? Look no more! I introduce you to the Brooklyn Nine Nine! Amazing, funniest, entertaining, breathtaking and will definitely ruin your life! The series was introduced to me by a friend, Justin Chan! (Plating the name here because I love the show!)
At first, I do not think the series will affect me but I was wrong! I managed to complete all 4 seasons within two weeks! There is not an episode that fails to make me laugh. I repeat, NONE! The series is simply well crafted in making me laugh and I laughed so hard!
The series goes deep into each of their characters and the characters are well developed! It’s not just the characters, the story line is good too. The plot can be twisted but I never watch a series that the characters feel so relatable.
As usual in Ally’s Thoughts, I will highlight a point in the series. There are a lot of points to choose from actually. There is the love, career, life lesson, culture and technical stuff. However, I’m going for the life lesson.
Brooklyn Nine Nine touched a lot of life lessons! From family stuff to relationship and somehow found its way to parenting. However, I’m going to highlight the career part! Why? I am totally amazed by how dedicated they are in their works!
I’m going to drop the synopsis here:
Detective Jake Peralta, a talented and carefree cop with the best arrest record, has never had to follow the rules too closely or work very hard. That changes when Ray Holt, a man with a lot to prove, becomes the new commanding officer of Brooklyn’s 99th precinct. As Holt reminds Peralta to respect the badge, an extremely competitive colleague — Detective Amy Santiago — starts to close in on the hotshot cop’s arrest record. Other members of the precinct include Sgt. Terry Jeffords, a devoted family man, Detective Charles Boyle, a hard worker who idolizes Jake, and Rosa Diaz, a sexy-yet-intimidating detective. Civilian office manager Gina Linetti is tasked with cleaning up everyone’s mess, while somehow getting involved in everyone’s business.
The daily life in 99th is mostly on solving open cases. Some of them only took days but some took years to be solved. No matter how silly or playful Jake Peralta looks like, he always has a work mindset. Even for the other detectives.
They are willing to work overtime, on their off days and even on their holidays! They even sacrificed their time with their family. I know that they are police and that is what police should do. If I am a policeman, I might not be able to give the same motivation and dedication like they do. I might be whining about how misery it is to miss my holiday. These guys? Their life is basically, work!
Now, I am not a policeman. I only have an eight to five work. If only I can have the same dedication as they are, I might feel happy with my work. They enjoy their daily life in work, the friendship with colleagues, the openness among them and living their lives every second. I’m not trying to be ungrateful but I’m trying to find a place that is right for me.
I know it is not easy and the series do showcase the risks, conflicts, and dramas in their life but they tried their best to manage it. Be it as an individual, a friend or a family. If only my life can be as straight forward as that. There are things that get so complicated now, it stressed me out even though everything is just inside my head. Life is not that simple because life includes others.
I do hope that I find my ‘workplace’ that I can really enjoy and bond like how the 99th does. I’m staying hopeful because… I’m a hopeful soul through the thick and thin! Season 5 ended with a big cliffhanger but the new season will be here on the 26th September! I can’t wait!
