ybrik July 6, 2014 Share July 6, 2014 In the movie sections, there is a topic for movies that exceeded expectations. For this topic I want to make it a little broader. So what shows, characters, storylines, etc were better than what you expected? I just binged watched Brooklyn 99 over this weekend and I have to say the show and the character Jake Peralta turned out better than what I expected. I figured it would be a show that was primarily used for Adam Samberg to be over the top goofy. Yes the character can be silly but isn't that over the top. Also the show has built a strong supporting cast that each get to showcase their own comedic talents not just Samberg. Also the character of Peralta is goofy but isn't over the top and comes off as a good guy that you would want to be friends with which is something that for some reason comedies don't have. Usually lead characters in comedies have to be funny at other people expense. I would also say the show Spartacus was more than what I expected. I was going to watch it since it was historical fiction show which I like but was expecting it to basically be what it was titled at TWOP Rome with more porn. Yes it had lots of blood and nudity but the show told a good story and had a real heart. 2 Link to comment
