Reno 911: Season 2 (Uncensored Edition)
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Presenting the episodes "Uncensored" is something of a mixed blessing. The closer Reno 911 hews to the Cops template, the funnier it is. Unlike Chapelle's Show or The Osbournes, Reno 911's episodes are arguably funnier with the profanities bleeped (not an option on this three-disc set). Happily, the exposed body parts are still blurred. Commendations are due the entire ensemble, as well as the B-list doppelganger cast (among them, Martin Mull, Sean Young, and Wayne Brady) that replaces them in the season cliffhanger, for "keepin' it real... real funny." Take the advice of executive producer Danny DeVito, who introduces episode 13: "I've never seen the show," he confesses, "but I've heard good things about it. I'm really going to watch the show this year." --Donald Liebenson

It amazes me that week after week they keep things fresh and funny. The cast comes back better than ever and doesn't let one certain member shine brighter than the other. This season patches the hole from season one to season two very well and leaves you with quite the cliffhanger. With a slew of great guest appearances (Kenny Rogers' appearance will no doubt go down as one of the highlights of Reno 911!Read more ›
This show is always laugh out loud funny. Both Upsurd and outragious and full of comic talent, there's never a dull moment. Hats off to the writers and the Actors.
The cast blew me away--all virtal unknowns before this show, and yet so talented! It takes a natural brilliance to play "dumb" so well.
Some of the can't-miss recurring issues in Season 2 include:
~ Trudy falling in love with a serial killer
~ A gay prisoner/leader of the gang the "Grape Slushies"
~ Dangle's wife (gasp! it's true)
~ Some amazing PSAs by R. Williams
~ Hospital visits that make you feel sorry for everyone involved
~ Hilarious segments from traffic school
~ The entire gang finally must pay the price for their actions
Perks to owning the DVD set:
~ excellent deleted scenes
~ a special segment from the 2004 Comedy Arts festival (whole cast onstage)
~ no bleeps--you get to hear what they really say
~ Come on, you'll have Reno 911 anytime of day!
British Detective Smiley visits the Reno Sheriff's Department, and ends up being shot dead after a bank robbery he pulled! Wiegel and Garcia are assigned to protect Kenny Rogers at a book signing in the local mall. They take down all of the flyers advertising his appearance and, as a result, only one person shows up. Unfortunately, that person is an obsessed fan who shoots Kenny! Jones and Garcia playfully attack a man wearing a milkshake costume. Disoriented, the milkshake man walks to the middle of a highway and is run over by a truck. This leads to an investigation by the District Attorney, in which each member of the Sheriff's Department turns against everybody else. At the conclusion of the investigation, they're all fired. To find out what happened to them, you'll have to watch season three of "Reno 911!" on Comedy Central.
Unlike the DVD boxed set for season one, the episodes in season two include all of the profanity. In addition, there are also over 90 minutes of alternate and deleted scenes.Read more ›
I just wanted to point out that you can watch a 10-15 minute clip of Junior and Dangle trying to make an advertisement for the first season of Reno 911! Here's how you do it:
- Pop in Disc 1 of Season 2
- Highlight "Episode 4"
- Press "down" and then first bar of the radio will be highlighted. Select it.
