Synopsis


The cinema vérité police documentary parody Reno 911! dispenses law and disorder during its first season on Comedy Central. The season's unscripted, totally improvised episodes follow various members of the Washoe County Sheriff's Department going about their duties, under the guidance of Lt. Jim Dangle (Tom Lennon). It doesn't take long before the shorts-wearing Dangle is revealed as a closeted homosexual, nor to discover that former magician's assistant Deputy Clementine Johnson (Wendi Mclendon-Covey) may still not be totally weaned from her exhibitionist tendencies. In the series opener, Lt. Dangle's new "zero-tolerance" policy backfires when he becomes the first person to be arrested in a fender bender. Later on, Detective Garcia (Carlos Alazraqui) wins a scavenger hunt by bringing in an inordinately tall, tattooed Jewish crack addict; Deputy Jones (Cedric Yarbrough) learns, to his surprise, that there are consequences to being racially oversensitive; conversely, Deputy Trudi Wiegel (Kerri Kenney) discovers the advantages of attempting suicide; the department falls over itself trying to impress the FBI, who've come to Reno to investigate a homicide; and an impending terrorist attack makes everyone paranoid, but not for the usual reasons. Season one ends with a cliffhanger, sparked by the Halloween eve death of Deputy Jones and his bizarre videotaped legacy. ~ Hal Erickson

    Excellent series that defines the Silver Age of Comedy Central before it REALLY took off with (adopted) Futurama, Drawn Together and umptillion Tosh.O and South Park seasons. Thomas Lennon, Niecy Nash, and Wendi are of course on-top of the world now for supporting actors and series leads (respectively), and Cedric shows up in things no and again, but at one time these cats were all together on one very satirical cop show about America's smaller Playground. (And no it's not Atlanta). If you like dry humor, random streaking comedians, aberrant silliness, and lots of muffin top sporting tan slacks, short-shorts and a badge, this show's for you.

    Loved this show. Still do! Couldnt belive my eyes when perusing the TV Show section of DVDs and rested my eyes upon this gem. Hours of non stop laughter for $25. You cant beat this deal. The DVD case is a little screwy, the binding isnt attached to the outer cover so the entire plastic block holding the 14 discs comes right out of the case. Also the discs are a little tricky to snap back into place via the circular ring clip that holds the individual dvds into place. Just be careful when removing and replacing each disc. Seems like it would be easy to scratch them when transferring. Other than that I'm a happy customer. :) RENO SHERIFFS' DEPARTMENT! There AINT no law against drugs. There aint no law that says a man has to wear a pair of pants! YOU put on two pairs of pants! I was feelin' a little blue, they god rained down these pills into my pocket! Yes he is alive... with the lord.

    I purchase the complete series of Reno 911 when a friend of mine told me it was on sale at Best Buy. I had watched some of it years ago, when I had cable TV and couldn't wait to get it. It was just as funny as I remembered. However, being an uncensored show, it is definitely not for children. Language, some nudity and graphic blood. Of course, your idea of comedy and mine may be quite different, but I still feel that this was one of the funniest shows. I was a little disappointed in season 6 when some characters did not return, but, you get that with every show. A lot of talent was on and guest starred in that show. I wish they would bring it back.

    I watched Reno 911! when it originally aired and decided to rewatch it, when low and behold it was removed from the streaming services I subscribe to. Luckily Bestbuy had the whole series for a low price with extras, and the extended money-counting scene from season 2 made me laugh till I cried. I screened it for a friend and even though I knew what to expect it still got me, that scene alone is worth the full price.

    I thought the series was available to stream on Hulu or netflix but when I wanted to watch it, it was gone. Luckily Best Buy had the entire series super cheap, and it comes with extended scenes at the end of every season. Watching Thomas Lennon and Kerri Kenney improv the scene where they have to count a room full of $5 bills brought me to tears, and now I can share the discs with my family and let them watch the extras too.

    I had never watched this show and happened upon it on youtube and became obsessed. I couldn't believe the ENTIRE series was available to own for such a low price. There a ton of bonus features as well if you're into those kinds of things (I am!). Definitely a staple for any Comedy Central fan's library.

    Not what I expected

    I placed my order for several movies. It gave me my date for delivery. Upon checking the tracking instead of one package it was split up. No biggie. All of the movies I purchased were Christmas gifts. They all arrived on time. However Reno 911 had a faulty disc I was told. It is split and warped. Waste of money. I wouldn't expect this quality from best buy.

    I have always loved watching the Reno 911 series on television when I could catch it playing. Now, the entire series is here all in one place. I enjoy the laughter all the characters bring and having them all in a convenient and durable enclosure was everything I could have asked for. Fans of this series will be pleased!
