The lives of seven incompetent Reno sheriff's deputies are detailed in this "Cops" style parody. Among the colorful characters are Lt. Jim Dangle, the short shorts-wearing, flamboyantly gay supervisor; Deputy James Garcia, who makes police brutality an art form; Deputy Trudy Wiegel, the manic depressive, socially awkward officer; Deputy Clementine Johnson, the skanky former magician's assistant; Deputy Travis Junior, the redneck who is never seen without his kevlar vest and sunglasses; Deputy S. Jones, the semi-competent ladies' man; and Deputy Raineesha Williams, the bootylicious black cop with an attitude. Written by Gibborino

Did You Know?


The show was originally conceived in 2001 as a sketch show titled "Ugly Americans" for the Fox network. Scenes with the police characters were to be short interstitials between longer sketches. But during filming, the cast realized that they enjoyed playing the police characters so much that they decided to make the series about them. A pilot was shot but it was rejected by Fox. Two years later, it was remade for Comedy Central which picked it up. See more »


In the episode where Lt. Dangle and another guy get drunk in Dangle's squad car, the man asks "What gun is that? Is that a Glock?" Lt. Dangle replies "Yes, it's a Glock 9mm." His gun is in fact a Beretta 92fs, not a Glock. See more »

Everything you could hope for.
30 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is one of those that delivers what it says it going to. It promises a comedy version of COPS and that is what you get. They make fun of every COPS scenario and more.

One of the first lines is, "Okay, would it be appropriate to sa-say, "Whi-which nnigger took the last doughnut?" In response to the use of the word "nigger" in the station area and I almost p***ed my pants. The show just got better and better.

The promos for this show where perfect: Showed just enough of the funny stuff to make you want to watch it, but kept enough secret to surprise you. And the slogan, "From the network that has no business giving you a cop show." It was perfect.

With I'm with Busey and this as new shows on Comedy Central they really have a good thing going. Perhaps this is a redeeming year for them... who knows.

8/10... as close to perfect as Comedy Central ever got since South Park.
