Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Netflix

One of the most enjoyable US sitcoms of recent times, Brooklyn Nine-Nine came fully-formed on day one and hasn't really looked back.

Former Saturday Night Live star Andy Samberg leads a great cast in an ensemble comedy about a bunch of New York cops who seem to have a great time despite the nature of their work.

The first three seasons are available here and despite Samberg as detective Jake Peralta being someone you cannot ignore, the real star of the show is Andre Braugher, who's great as his straight-laced boss, Captain Ray Holt.
