Absloutely hysterical Jun 19, 2008
By N. Durham
You'd figure after a few years on Comedy Central and even having their own feature film would slow down the crew behind Reno 911, and you'd be wrong. The fifth season of Reno 911 finds the incredibly inept deputies of the Reno Sheriff Department in more mayhem, beginning with the continuation of whether or not Garcia (Carlos Alazraqui) stole Dangle's (Thomas Lennon) husband, while Weigel (Kerry Kenney-Silver) tries to pan off her baby. Other developments this season include the ladies of the department get new kevlar vests that have an unexpected "enhancement", the deputies working undercover to "patrol" the Mexican border, and training policemen for Baghdad. What really makes this season stand out however are the excellent and hilarious guest stars, which include George Lopez as Reno's filthy mayor, Diedrich Bader as the "Dog: The Bounty Hunter"-type Tommy Hawk, and a hilarious Seth Green as the manager of a fast food joint that Jones (Cedric Yarbrough) and Garcia have to work for undercover. The gags are inventive and oh so funny, and five seasons later the show still manages to provide plenty of laughs. All in all, here's hoping that Reno 911 keeps up the hilarity and doesn't take a suspension from duty.

Another Great Season Jul 15, 2008
By Chad Carpenter
If you own the first four seasons, then I highly recommend adding this one to your already growing collection. There are tons of guest apperances threw out this season, if you didn't watch this season when it aired on tv, and are seeing it for the first time on this dvd set, then you'll be surprised, like I was. This set is packed with 16 great episodes, over 40 min. of extended scenes and lots more

They're at it again!!! Aug 06, 2008
By Mad Collector
"horror film buff"
Another satisfying entry in the "Reno 911" saga. Our usual gang of inept cops do their awkward best to keep crime off the streets in their fair city. By now, devout fans are probably able to predict how scenes will conclude given 4 seasons worth of similar material, but there are some fresh ideas and fun new exploration here. Be sure to add it to your collection!

"It's like 'Weekend at Bernie's' except you're alive and you'd rather be dead."---Trudy Oct 21, 2008
I was really looking forward to season 5 because the cliffhangers from season 4 were so good. I'll admit, I was disappointed in how the cliffhangers turned out. Still, this is a good season. I like the addition of the animal shelter public service announcements. They were very funny. The hypothetical guy was used a little too much, though. I didn't find him all that funny. There are several laugh-yourself-to-tears moments in this season, including the lottery misprint, the talking stuffed bunnies, under-age groping sting, and the clown car. The bonus material is very good, too. Is it just me or is Trudy becoming more normal as the series progresses (well, relatively speaking).
1. Season 4 left some awesome cliffhangers--Lt. Dangle is about to marry the man of his dreams only to have Garcia steal his man away and Wiegel has a baby courtesy of a sperm bank with the donor being one of her co-workers. The former is resolved but the latter only partially so. I was disappointed that one question will never be answered. We also get to meet Terry's fiancee--a surprisingly respectable woman. Highlight: Clemmy's lizard psa.
2. Wiegel participates in the Neighbors and Friends program. The guys get on the Tommy Hawk Bounty Hunter TV show and look like, well, what you'd expect (their revenge is very funny, though). The sheriff's dept. hires a former sex slave to run dispatch.
3. According to the commentary, this was the highest rated episode. The women get more form-fitting vests which they wear without shirts with beneficial results. Dangle finally asks Junior why he wears his vest over his shirt. An ex-con, who Dangle and Jones do not remember, comes back from prison for revenge. Question--Junior is seen with a ring and checking his breath in the bar with his co-workers. Was he going to propose to Kimball before he shot her?
4. George Lopez plays the mayor who is involved in 7 felonies. As Wiegel puts it, "His breath smelled like my Uncle Carl before he told me, 'let's keep it between the two of us.'"
5. It's coconut nut cluster selling time and Kimball and Jones find this job to be more dangerous than their regular jobs.
6. Dangle's father, who had abandoned him to start a black family in Chicago, dies and Dangle's half-siblings arrive in Reno to settle the will. Dangle gets Raineesha to pretend to be his girlfriend. Highlight: A ransom note is over-steamed and the gang has to piece together the cut-out letters to read the message.
7. Seth Green guest stars posing as the manager of a frequently-robbed fast food restaurant and makes life miserable for his new employees--Jones and Garcia working undercover.
8. Junior and Garcia participate in "Good Fences Make Good Neighbors" which Dangle describes as "Burning Man for right-wing rednecks." Under-age groping sting is conducted with Trudy dressed like a school girl--that sketch brought tears to my eyes.
9. Junior conducts health inspections of brothels. A popcorn machine is set up in the precinct. Jackie the prostitute (played by Trudy Wiegel's Kerri Kenney-Silver, of course) is in the hospital. I find it strange that Garcia did not visit her as he once tried to help her. The sheriff's department becomes a safe baby surrender site.
10. The Reno sheriff's dept. trains a Iraqi police unit. Clemmy tells a group of young people the correct way to drive drunk. Dangle and Wiegel score a coke bust involving talking stuffed bunnies.
11. Trudy, Clemmy, and Jonesy think they've won the lottery and it turns into one of the funniest Reno 911 sketches ever. At the end of the episode, we see that another officer didn't hear about the lottery misprint, too, but reacts in a very uncharacteristic way. Dangle has a bad experience with a tanning bed.
12. Raineesha is featured in Strong Sister Magazine. The guys need to enforce the 6-foot from strip dance law. Trudy works undercover in a strip club.
13. An American Indian shows up looking for his daughter "among the warriors"--Trudy Wiegel. Junior tries to bust a prostitution ring running through a Thai take-out and keeps getting taken out by angry delivery girls.
14. Junior runs for Department of Animal Carcass Removal Commissioner. You get to see Junior take off his dark glasses in his campaign commercial and understand why he always wears them!
15. An acting coach trains the Reno Sheriff Dept to improve their undercover work. There is another reunion between an officer and father which is even more puzzling than the previous one. Highlight: tragedy inside a clown car.
16. The dept. designs a float for the Law Enforcement Parade in Carson City which leads to a cliffhanger. Trudy gets extra friendly with a police dog.
Extras: Psychological evaluations of all the officers and extended scenes.

"Three left turn signals do not a right turn signal make" Aug 05, 2012
By Matthew G. Sherwin
Reno 911! is a hilarious mockumentary-style spoof of a "Cops" reality show; the acting is superb and I couldn't stop laughing! They keep the action going and it all held my attention. If this show is new to you, try watching an episode--you'll probably laugh a lot! They even went through the trouble of filming some of the scenes in a real working police substation in Carson, California! These are great performances with minimally scripted material; much of this is improvised with actors making up their lines as they go along. The actors include Cedric Yarbrough as Deputy Jones who tries to be the ultimate ladies' man; Niecy Nash as Deputy Raineesha Williams, a remarkably curvaceous cop with an attitude; Robert Ben Garant as Deputy Travis Junior who is a quasi-redneck; Thomas Lennon as flamboyantly gay (but sometimes in denial) Lieutenant Jim Dangle; Kerri Kenney as manic depressive, racist Deputy Trudy Wiegel; Carlos Alazraqui as Deputy James Garcia who has his own attitudes; Wendi McLendon-Covey as loose woman Deputy Clementine Johnson and Mary Birdsong as "I Am Not a Lesbian" Deputy Cherisha Kimball.
In this episode a great deal happens; but I'm certainly not going to spoil it all for you. An officer gets wounded, all right--Lieutenant Jim Dangle goes to a local tanning salon and gets way overexposed and winds up in the hospital with an incredibly burnt, bright red body! Deputies come by to visit Dangle with some amusing results; Deputies Williams and Jones do a rap song for Dangle while Wiegel's visit with Jim goes horribly wrong. There's an interesting little private moment between Jones and Dangle, too.
In addition, several deputies think they've won the lottery but actually they have misprinted tickets; there are hilarious results in which deputies arrive at work to let the department know "how they feel" about not having to work anymore. The best part comes when you see their reactions to the fact that their tickets are fakes!
Look for other funny scenes including the one in which Terry (Nick Swardson) steals a cop car--and more! Wanru Tseng plays Cindy, a former you-know-what slave that the department is trying to rehabilitate.
I recommend Reno 911! Episodes and season DVD sets for people who like hysterically funny spoofs of reality shows like "Cops" and improvised TV comedy. Fans of the actors will not be disappointed.
