I know that there already is a lot of reasons mentioned out there of why Brooklyn 99 is a gift, but something I never saw is this:
There are two characters who are overweight and obviously not physically healthy. Be that from their obesity or something else entirely, the thing that hit me was: The instances I remember where nutrition and obsession with food was mentioned were not about Hitchcock and Skully. They were about Terry.
And that is actually really cool, because Hitchcock and Skully are both people who may or may not have medical reason to change their diet, but they don’t want to. And that’s fine. Nobody should gives them extrinsic reason to. They are the kind of people of whom I’d expect that they don’t want to change their weight or don’t feel it’s worth the effort to do so.
Terry on the other hand may not seem to be the obvious choice to many people, but he actually is. His muscle/fat-ratio says he lifts weights with the goal of packing lean muscle. That is something you don’t accomplish without counting calories, checking macro nutrients, probably sometimes going for food supplements, recalibrating your diet according to weight changes and changes in training schedule etc. etc.
Point is, this is nice and realistic. They could have gone for another instance of an obese character who is desperate about weight issues, pushing the idea that if you are overweight, you MUST want to change that. But they did not. They picked a character who has a lot less social stigma for it, but a lot more reason to obsess about food.
