Storyline

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

Trivia

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, who picked it up. See more »

Goofs

The police radio that is heard in the background is broadcasting LAPD radio transmissions, not Reno Sheriff Department transmissions. See more »

Quotes

Deputy James Garcia: Yeah, it's like, I have a plan with God but it's like a bad cell plan, doesn't work in certain areas.
Deputy Travis Junior: Five calls a day.

The Funniest Show on TV!!!
17 August 2003 | by Tiger_MarkSee all my reviews

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!
