And that’s the problem: A generation of romantic comedies rewarding men for diligently pursuing a woman until she caves has normalized a behavior that has direct and unwelcome corollaries in real life. In an era when we’re having open conversations about representation and sensitivity in comedy, the shtick of a guy who won’t take no for an answer has lost any charm it once held. It’s become either a romantic signpost to set up a long-term romantic dynamic (which it shouldn’t), or it’s shorthand to denote a clueless creep while rarely taking him to task for it.
But that’s too easy. Boyle isn’t just a for-laughs lech in the early-seasons Big Bang Theory Howard Wolowitz mold. Boyle’s meant to be as rounded a character as any of the main cast, and is presented with a suitably sympathetic eye, despite having more than one Nice Guy tendency. He assembles a complicated toy for Terry’s twin girls; he offers unconditional friendship to Jake. Brooklyn Nine-Nine has, in Boyle, a fantastic example of an essentially well-meaning guy whose behavior is still unacceptable—not a two-dimensional creep on the fringes, but someone integrated into the group who still needs to be reminded not to make his feelings someone else’s problem. (After Rosa told him not to listen to a psychic’s portents of doom, Boyle tells Gina: “Rosa said it herself—I’m in charge of my own destiny. That means she wants me to make a move.”) That the show waited until he was in another relationship to acknowledge he’d been a creeper is a sidestep of a bigger issue, and evidence Boyle has a lot more amends to make. A more recent episode, “Fancy Brugdom,” has offered hints that Boyle’s increasingly aware of the shortcomings in his character. There’s still time in the season to course-correct on this; here’s hoping the show knows it still needs to.Genevieve Valentine, “The Full Boyle: Guys who don’t hear “no” just aren’t funny anymore.” [x] (via margotkim)
