One of the best cold opens from the show Brooklyn Nine-Nine involves Andy Samberg, criminals, and a Backstreet Boys song.
I am a big fan of the sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine. While I enjoy everything about the series, if I had to pick a favorite part, it would have to be the random and hilarious cold opens.
