Rosa making Tequila steam using an iron! Did that happen to anyone else? I got a kick out of Amy and Gina trying to help Scully out with he girl. Jake's Amy impression was pretty great. I like them as a couple just fine but I don't need their relationship to be the focus of the episode, or even referenced, in order for me to like it. I was actually disappointed that Holt ended up being right about him. I'm so happy that Amy is going to become a sergeant. Her leaving led to a nice plot but the wrap up didn't work for me. People do take stuff like that very seriously.
I'm trying to think, but have we ever seen them at odds like this before? I do hope they bring back Andy Daly's character, especially since it looked like he pulled one over Holt. I also enjoyed chasing amy more but in the first one i died of laughter when jake said he preferred unmoderated over moderated and in order for holt to believe him and allow him to carry on he needed to agree with the why! Holt telling the kid to get out after he said trains were lame was hilarious. Terry's angry dance was the greatest thing ever. That alone would have been enough, but Holt vs. Plus, even Kevin being bored with toy trains was a great choice! Her leaving led to a nice plot but the wrap up didn't work for me. Love the little shot of Gina stuck in bed with a roomful of apnea-suffering Boyles. I'm starting to feel bad for Scotsdale.
Terry Crews and Andre Braugher are the best. Figured the kid wasn't going to be interested in the end, but it was still hilarious. I would also like to think Amy would be mature enough to have that conversation with Jake rather than bolting and possibly sabotaging her career. I liked both episodes, but I think Chasing Amy was my favorite. The Cop-Con episode had the same feeling as the Beach House episode, where we were introduced to the Different Drink Amys, so it was very fitting that that joke was brought back in this episode.
Also the exterior stock footage wasn't from Rochester! But there were so many great lines. I did find it interesting that she didn't seem to have a hangover compared to the rest especially Rosa. I don't know why that got me so much, but I just thought that that line was really sweet and very fitting for their relationship. I forgot what 7-Drink Amy is, or if we ever learned at all. I liked Little Holt waiting patiently for 45 minutes before the next train boarding. And of course, Jake doesn't care and would be totally pumped if she ended up outranking him, because her ambition is one of the things he loves about her.
I loved Holt calling Kevin and how ridiculous Kevin thought the train stuff was. Terry accidentally shooting Jake in the chest with a firework. The second episode was much better. Even Kevin didn't want to hear about the trains! Those were two strong Holt episodes, one as a central character and one in support. Great to see Andy Daly, and Holt was right, Jeffrey is evil! Boyle's jealousy of the robot until he found it was a girl. I think I know which of those the serious train set collectors would go for.
I was really pleased with the little twist of Amy not freaking out over the test she got 102% , but freaking out over whether her being a sergeant would have an impact on her relationship with Jake. Everything with the trains was fun. That's something a lot of shows would use as reason for tension between a couple. I love that Amy wasn't so much panicking about passing the test of course she will ace any test ever but about her relationship with Jake and how it might change. Then, Jake and Rosa search for Amy, who suddenly vanished hours before taking the Sergeant Exam. I didn't get what the deal was with the bread dough in the jar.
Great to see Sarah Baker as Amy's best only? We finally meet Kylie too, and she seems to be just the sort of person Amy would be best friends with. They're amongst the most popular transformers. And I love that he knows her so well, right down to boring things she's talked about, like colour coded folders. I'm not even worried about Amy possibly becoming sergeant effecting it, because I have faith in Schur and the rest, after the way they handled Leslie and Ben, despite her promotion kind of. Arguing over whether a model train set should be 100% accurate or fun? And I continue to love how vindictive, childish, and petty Holt gets, whenever he gets competitive.
Jake recounting all the parties he'd snuck out to, which whittled all the way down to confessing he'd had a ponytail, made me laugh out loud. I liked the second episode a lot, with the exception of Gina being an asshole. Terry angry dancing at Holt was fantastic. Melissa Fumero is so fantastic. My only complaint with that was Amy fearing her success would hurt her relationship with Jake.
I adored Cop-Con as much as I usually love group episodes. But yes it's a real thing that can get Finally caught these episodes! It would be really depressing if this show didn't get another season. The 'important item has disappeared and now we have to trace our steps to find it' trope is pretty tired. I loved watching Terry and Holt clash over them. Finally saw Chasing Amy on OnDemand.
I just really enjoy seeing everybody in a plot together, probably because it just reinforces how strong this ensemble cast is. They are great to look at, but really only older kids can actually play with them. Their relationship is the best. I think my favorite thing from their storyline was Jake saying that he always knew that Amy was going to be his boss. I prefer them to just be cartoon characters that end up being the butt of every joke.
