    This brand of humor can be an acquired taste, but fans with a tolerance for out-there buffoonery will want to make the trip to "Reno." [20 Jul 2003]

    For all the great flashes of improvisation from this fine comic team, there's an overall feeling of weariness to the effort, of perspiration rather than inspiration. [23 Jul 2003]

    The action moves quickly, from one incident to the next, and the whole ends up a little more than the sum of its parts. "Reno 911!" may not be truly arresting television, but it sure looks like it, and is fun to watch. [23 Jul 2003]

    So aggressive is RENO 911!'s low-budget affect (not to mention its inconsistent pace and sometimes flat humor) that Cops looks positively polished by comparison. ... Still, and especially in its improvisational moments, RENO 911! offers occasionally engaging spontaneity.
