Why “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” was unique

Actor Stephanie Beatriz of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," who plays detective Rosa Diaz on the show, joins "Salon Talks" to discuss season five and reflect on what makes the ensemble cast and the show's writing a standout. Week to week, Beatriz noted, the characters change. "In the last four seasons there has been a lot of growth for these characters," she said, noting that while those changes have been mostly good for other characters, it's a little different for Rosa, who has just gone through a break up. "Everyone in the squad is moving forward and Rosa is in this sort of stagnant place with herself."

Watch the full episode to hear about Beatriz's film "The Light of the Moon," that takes on sexual assault in a very honest way. Tune in for SalonTV's live shows, "Salon Talks" and "Salon Stage", daily at noon ET / 9 a.m. PT and 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT, streaming live on Salon, Facebook and Periscope.
