  • An actor helps the Reno Sheriff's Department.

    This is the first episode of the show my younger brother watched and it was not a good introductory showing to get him interested in the series. The "actor" offered very little in the comedic department, and the cutaway gags were not really humorous, like they usually are. When he was more interested in watching TNA Impact than a once powerhouse comedy, you know you have problems.

    It picked up at some parts such as "I didn't know you had a potholder business". "Yeah, I know, nobody did. That's the problem", but things never reached regular Reno goodness. Dangle admitting that his balls are different sizes was great, but just not up to par. As insane as it sounds, I think I may have made a mistake watching Reno over Impact.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • During the shootout scene Kimball is shot in the left leg. But, in the very next scene she is shown with a brace over her right leg.

    • Even though her face is blurred, Mary Birdsong (who plays Deputy Kimball) plays the Judy Garland impersonator. In reality, Mary has played Judy for a number of years in a show called Judy Speaks.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Dangle: I got an idea we'll line up the corpes by type; hobo clowns, Cirque de Soleil style, Ringmaster types and animal themed.
      Travis Junior: Where's this one go? Hobo or Ringmaster? Cause he's kinda...
      Dangle: Fuck it. He's a Hobo Ringmaster.

    • Dangle: As you know our undercover operations have resulted in: 1 arrest,
      Trudy: Yeah!
      Dangle: 2 shootings, 6 stabbings, and 71 cases that fell apart in front of the Grand Jury.

    • Trudy: I would never want to be an actor. I think being famous like ALF and not being able to go out into public would be so difficult.

    • Trudy: I was cast in the 5th grade in Oliver as the Pear, and I didn't find out till opening night there was no Pear in Oliver. I should have known better.
