Reno 911!: Season 6
Frequently Bought Together

To its credit, Reno 911! did not mellow over its six-season run. It continued to brazenly cross the PC line with impunity, as witness the department's senior abuse PSAs and an encounter with an unrepentant teacher who has been having sex with one of her teenage students. The series enlisted some notable accomplices this season, including Rainn Wilson as a cunning serial killer with escalating demands (like watching Cold Mountain) before he will reveal where a body is buried, Jane Lynch as a couples therapist, George Lopez as Reno's mayor, who may have committed bigamy with a maniacal hooker, Jonah Hill as a terminated employee who will not go quietly, Patton Oswalt as a criminal extradited to Thailand, and Craig Robinson as a linoleum-floor pitchman. Dangle and company may be dumb, but they're not clueless, and after watching them suffer no end of humiliation, it's nice to also see them get the upper hand every once in awhile. In one episode, Junior (Robert Ben Garant) reveals how to crash an Italian wedding. In another, Dangle eggs on a hippie protester who has become a Reno tourist attraction. "Y'all can't be cops," a citizen protests at one point. "This must be a joke." Yes, it was a joke, and a great one while it lasted. --Donald Liebenson

I know that seasons 2-5 were highly censored, but the show could be followed easily. I can't say that I really care for the new deputies, I don't think they are that funny, Garcia, Johnson, & Kimball were, I miss the those cast members.
However, if are looking for a few, sort of mediocre jokes & situations, you might enjoy it, but find yourself missing the former cast. Fun to watch, as usual, but not up to the "standards" of comedy of the first 5 seasons. This should have been much funnier than it is.
My favorite episodes include "Dangle's Murder Mystery: Parts 1 & 2" that boasts an outstanding, hilarious performance by all; "We Don't Want The Pope" in which the Reno Sheriff's department must deal with a potential visit from the Pope; "Getaway Trailer" which has Deputies Trudy Weigel and Frank Rizzo going for a wild ride and more inside a moving mobile home; "Viacom Grinch" which puts the Sheriff's Department on copyright infringement duty;--and, last but not least, "Weigel's Couples Therapy" in which Trudy finds a way to get more therapy coverage by bringing her "other half" to her counseling sessions.
In addition, some highly talented actors give terrific performances. Terry (Nick Swardson) now spells his name "Terrrry" and he seems to be forever violating his parole. In addition, Wanru Tseng continues her role as Cindy, a former $ex slave being reformed by the Reno Sheriff's Department.Read more ›
