So Why Aren't You Watching: Brooklyn 99?

I went into this year's fall TV season with a lot of enthusiasm; for the first time in years there were a wide number of things I wanted to watch, and I dove into them with delight.  Some disappointed me (the sadly odious "Back in the Game", which contains the wonderful Maggie Lawson but recycles its plot verbatim from the Bad News Bears with extra dollops of homophobia and racism; "Reign", which takes the compelling tale of Mary, Queen of Scots and adds ghost and the woefully miscast Megan Follows as Catherine Medici.).  But one absolutely soared to surprise me with its humor and humanity.

So why aren't you watching it?
