reno 911 season 4 episode 14 dangles wedding wiegel cake cast

Celebrate another season of Reno 911!

After a wedding countdown, Wiegel (Kerri Kenny-Silver) returns to work pregnant…but who is the father?  Spanish Mike (Oscar Nuñez) returns and threatening to escape before the FBI come for him!  A murder in the department has the deputies out to avenge a death.  Plus, Dangle could finally find the love he is seeking…but it could also mean a shocking revelation from one of the other deputies!

Reno 911!—Season 4 is a found-footage police parody comedy series.  The season aired on Comedy Central from July 9, 2006 to August 13, 2006.

I didn’t really watch Reno 911! when it aired.  I’d see an episode here or there, but never sat down and watched it…I missed out.  The “here-and-there” method with Reno 911! doesn’t work.  Reno 911! works best when you watch it as a whole.

Travel to Ye-Old Times with Sir Boozehammer of Galen

The show is largely about characterization and in-jokes.  Watching episode to episode and season to season allows you to really get a feel for the characters, their quirks, and their fallacies (which they of course have a ton of).  The order of the episodes generally don’t matter too much (there are a few continuing themes), but the real core of the series is the interactions between the officers and the interactions with those they are trying to police.

The series is solid with the base cast but the recurring cast members and guest stars also bring the fun.  This season has appearances by Paul Rudd, Patton Oswalt (who has frequently appeared), David Koechner, Oscar Nuñez, Paul Reubens, Tracey Walter, Brian Posehn, Zach Galifianakis, and Chelsea Handler.  My favorite continues to be regular guest star Nick Swardson aka Terry the roller-skater with issues.

reno 911 season 4 episode 8 the department gets a corporate sponsor hottys hot wings

You have the right to a 10 piece meal!

The season also features one of my all-time favorite episodes in which the officers receive sponsorship (and free wings) from Hooter’s knock-off Hotty’s Hot Wings.  The sponsorship of course comes with conditions and the style of the writing for this episode works with the cast and as a great over-arching theme (something that doesn’t always go well in Reno 911!).

Reno 911! is a bit of an acquired taste, but it is a taste worth acquiring.  The series is funny, smart, and definitely not PC (some jokes have you questioning if they could be made just ten years later).  The series is full of fun actors, fun skits, and a good presentation.  Reno might be second to Las Vegas in Nevada, but Reno 911! is tops.
