I just finished watching Brooklyn 99 for the very first time, and loved it. I didn't think I'd find a sitcom after The Office that I would enjoy as much. Michael Schur is definitely a comedy genius. I couldn't help but notice a few similarities between both sitcoms. Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I would love to hear any other similarities people noticed.
The Office: That's what she said B99: Title of your sex tape
The Office: Office Olympics B99: The Jimmy Jab Games
The Office: Dwights obsession with Michael B99: Charles obsession with Jake
The Office: Dwights weird farm family B99: Charles weird farm family
The Office: Jan Levinson, a character/love interest that starts out relatively normal and the series ends with her being completely unhinged B99: Teddy Wells 👆
The Office: Todd Packer B99: The Vulture
Gina reminds me of Kelly but is somehow worse. They're both "business b's"
Rosa is basically April Ludgate (Parks and Rec). Both hate to show emotions, but open up throughout the series. I think Rosa was better written though
