Aside from being an incredibly funny series overall, NBC's Brooklyn Nine-Nine has reputation for some of the best cold opens out there. And while this may not be that huge of a shock, we have to give the title fr the best cold open to S05E17 "DFW." All we need to say is Jake (Andy Samberg), a police line-up, and the Backstreet Boys. But as much as everyone (rightfully so) praises the performance, extra points go to the righteously awkward reminder at the end that makes you feel bad- for about a second before it's all funnier than it was before:
