I'm starting to like Reno 911
ARGH!

The show really used to annoy me. But it's often on right before The Daily Show that comes on at midnight. I think Reno is growing on me. That one guy who wears those shorts? It's too much information!

There are two segments that cracked me up, though. The lady that was dragging the hot water heater down the street. And the lady the cops were going to evict. She was on top of the apartment building cursing them out and throwing flower pots at the cops. So they threw a brick up at her and knocked her off the roof. She died when she hit a car and the cops split. I swear it was funny.

1. No shit
I am REALLY digging that show more and more. It is FREAKING HILARIOUS. And that's funny--it kind of annoyed me at first, too. Maybe it really wasn't as funny at first?

I love the trashy looking lady who is about to be arrested so she screams and throws up her shirt--total play on the drunken trashies who are always getting arrested on COPS and have one floppy boob hanging out (nothing AGAINST floppy boobs, I own two myself, just the having one hanging out whilst being arrested...)

I love that show. The Nation of Islam stuff cracks me up too. "You the white devil!!!"

6. Oh yeah - when the cop dressed up in the dark suit and red bow tie
Hoping he'd get laid. Funny and cute stuff.

2. Mr. Nownow and I
Had to replace our water heater a few weeks back. We happened to remember the bit about the woman with her pantyhose on outside her clothes dragging a water heater down the road and almost damaged ourselves giggling while carrying a dead water heater through the house. Damn you! Damn you, Reno 911!

7. "I'm not comin' out! -- I'm not comin' out!"
And it was so funny when the cops put the hot water heater in the patrol car when she wouldn't go in. Then, they'd make her chase them down the street, they'd slow down to let her catch up a little and then zoom ahead.

3. HA, I love it too!
Absolutely hillarious. I love the black lady cop, she's GREAT. And the slutty cop, and the gay one, HA!

4. I loved the bit recently
where they were counting money in a hot hot room and they were stripped down to their underwear and blowing on each other seductively for coolness.

God that cracked me up.

9. I found season one much funnier
The episode where they go undercover to Burning Man was hilarious.

Season 2 has had its moments though.

12. She's great!
But my favorite officer remains Trudy Weigel (Kerri Kenney)
The scenes where she is sitting talking to her mother's grave. So incredibly twisted.

If you aren't already, you should sign up for the Reno 911 email newsletter. It's penned by Officer Dangle and comes every Wednesday before the show.

16. Weigel undercover
she couldn't figure out what kind of underwear to wear when she went undercover as a prostitute - last shot was Weigel standing on the sidewalk wearing one of those giant old cotton bras and long-leg girdle under the low-cut, short-short hooker outfit!!

14. I've been wanting to post about this for days
But i was too ashamed! So before I posted, I did a search for it and there were no postings in the Lounge for the past year. Then I figured to hell with it. Thanks for replying.

15. To me, this is the funniest show around...I have to admit I've only
seen a couple of shows this season but last season absolutely had me in stitches. The one show I saw this season though was incredible - the police and fireman's Ball being held on the same night - I simply think this show has the potential to be brilliant. And some of the episodes have been.
