The Brooklyn Nine-Nine And New Girl Crossover Episodes Created Some Problems, Folks

(0)

Big TV crossover events aren’t nearly as ubiquitous as they used to be. Forget about huge interconnected universes like the Arrowverse and don’t even get me started on the many Marvel heroes beginning to cross paths on Disney+.

(0)

When the Wisconsin-born trio of David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker (aka ZAZ) unleashed the comedy hit of 1980 in “Airplane!” (which shockingly outgrossed the higher-profile “Caddyshack”), Hollywood immediately set out to capitalize on the boys’ relentless brand of spoofery.
