  • Not the funniest Reno episode. Alot of characters didn't come back this season and there are two new ones. Tons of change to adjust to as a fan of the show since the beginning. Though still has the same charm of seasons past. Glad it is back.moreless

    This season starts with the addition of two new officers and the loss of three on the show. Clemme, Kimbell, and Garcia now being gone will take some adjusting for all us Reno fans. Overall the episode was o.k.. Some funny moments but the show definitely didn't start with a bang.

    It seemed that they were trying something new not only with the new characters, but with the way the established characters act as well. Dangle being someone who always had a knack for re-enforcing others jokes with a little add-on of his own, seemed to talk to much at times, even while another person was talking. Other established characters seemed to be there old selves, no complaints there.

    The new characters played by Ian Roberts and Joe Lo Trugilo were alright, didn't laugh much during there scenes. Sort of reminds of seeing some of the older cops during the beginning of the first season. Hard to established characters in a 30 min episode so time will tell if these two work out on the show or not.

    I'm willing to chalk this episode up to a new ensemble cast get to know each other and there styles with is not as easy in improv comedy. And seeing as how I'm a big Ian Roberts and Joe Lo Truglio fan already, I'm confident that there characters will grow on me. I truly hope the season gets better as it gets past this transition period.moreless
  • Reno is back!

    After nine long months Reno 911! is finally back on TV. I was unsure about the cast shakeup, but honestly, who really is going to miss Clementine and Garcia? And the new castmembers made the show feel fresher as opposed to stagnant and innocuous like it did last year. Jack was pretty funny, and Frank was not too bad either.



    But the performance of the night, like usual, goes to Lieutenant Jim Dangle. The 90's sitcom like opening where the star goes backstage, in addition to mistakingly arresting Jonah Hill were just a few of his highlights tonight.



    Good episode and glad the show is back.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Though no specifics are given, Dangle mentions that a few deputies were killed in the crash last season. They include Kimball (Mary Birdsong), Garcia (Carlos Alazraqui) and Johnson (Wendi McLendon-Covey).

  • QUOTES (1)

    • (opening of show)
      Dangle: Oh, wow! Holy poop. I thought we got cancelled. No, that is the weirdest thing ever. I could have sworn for sure we were cancelled.

  • NOTES (2)

    • There is much speculation about why and how Wendi-McClendon Covey, Carlos Alazraqui and Mary Birdsong left the show. This was posted on Wendi's myspace page:

      Hi everyone!
      Recently I've been asked the same questions over and over, so I thought I'd better just address the subject here so I don't have to keep writing individual messages about it.
      No, I'm not on Reno 911 anymore. No, I didn't leave on my own. No, I didn't see it coming. No, I wasn't the only one who was dismissed. No, it wasn't because we weren't doing a good job - in this business you don't necessarily get hired because you're good, and you don't necessarily get let go because you're bad.
      Yes, I was on the set of The Office when I found out.
      Yes, I was disappointed at first, but as Sophia Loren used to say, "Don't cry over anything that won't cry over you." Five seasons and a movie was a good run, and I'm surprised that it lasted that long. I'm grateful to have been a part of the show but believe me, it was really time to move on and play other types of weird women - maybe someone who wears a turtleneck!
      We wrapped season 5 in April of 2007, so I've been away from the show for 2 years. It's a distant, bittersweet memory now.
      So thanks to all of you for liking my character! Thanks for being so sweet to me.
      xoxoxoxox, Wendi
