Reno 911 is Back and it’s Incredible
Today was a beautiful day, Reno 911 is back!
Growing up, Reno 911 on Comedy Central was without question, my favorite TV show. From 2003-2009, I watched Reno 911 on a nightly basis. It was my Office before I found The Office. Like most of Comedy Central shows, clips from the hit COPS-like comedy are few and far between on YouTube. With the exception of a few classic short scenes, Reno 911 has always been a little difficult to find...
However, lately, I had seen Comedy Central uploading not only clips from the show but at times, full episodes! Now, I know why...
Reno 911 is indeed back, and now streaming exclusively on the mobile-streaming service Quibi. It is still produced by Comedy Central but follows a new format on Quibi.
The streaming service has a ton of mainly Quibi-created movies and TV shows, but with one major twist... All pieces of viewable content on Quibi is 10 minutes or less. Now, I must say.that when I found out one of my favorite TV shows was coming back, I was ecstatic. Then, when I found out it would be exclusive to Quibi, I was bummed out. I thought I needed to see the standard full 22 minutes for it to truly feel like Reno 911. Man, was I wrong.
I subscribed to the service today, and in just a short afternoon, I finished the complete new Reno 911 season and laughed the entire time. It's almost as if Reno 911 was created in 2003 to one day exist as a short-form TV show. It has lost absolutely none of its magic, and to be honest, I can't wait to watch more Reno 911 on Quibi in the future.
If you're a big fan of the show and have been living under a rock like I was, you have to get Quibi right away and reunite with the original, full cast of Reno 911 for a hilarious 12-episode season.
