Quick to yell "Fuck the police!" whenever a cruiser rolls by and the uniformed driver grills you down? Then Reno 911! is the show for you. The brainchild of The State veterans Thomas Lennon, Robert Ben Garant, and Kerri Kenney-Silver, the Comedy Central mockumentary series tosses pies at police officers with its dumbass characters and their knack for busting comically inept criminals, from cross-dressers to dim-witted drug pushers. If cops were this idiotic in real life, the streets truly wouldn't be safe. MB
