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
Amy Brassette was a cast member in the original unaired pilot for FOX. When Comedy Central picked it up in 2003, Brassette was unable to reprise her role, because she was appearing in the FOX series Cedric the Entertainer Presents (2002). She guest appeared in season one, episode nine, "Garcia's Anniversary". 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 »
This has to be the craziest comedy there is. Moreover, it is good fun. I eagerly anticipated another show from the bunch that brought us "The State" and "Viva Variety." Finally, the talent is back! Each week we get to follow members of the Reno Sheriff department as they investigate every weird kind of crime there is. However, it is the officers themselves that are the most deranged individuals out there. From the obviously gay Dangle to the equally worthless Junior. One of the great things is that each character is given a detailed and unique persona. Some are stupid, some are jerks, all are funny. These are outstanding improvs being given the freedom and comedic vehicle to be at their best. I eagerly await each new episode and will buy the DVD the day it is released. BRILLIANT!
