It's been more than a decade since television last focused on the & # 39; s sheriff's department in Reno, Nevada. But now, a miracle of miracles, Reno 911! he is back. The original Medical Central series, which was completed in 2009, is a police-style show about a group of colorful police officers in Reno, most commonly in short dresses worn by Lieutenant Dangle (Thomas Lennon). The show's revival, which also includes real founders and designers, comes courtesy of Quibi's new broadcast platform. Since its launch in April, Quibi's biggest retail outlets have been their format – "quick bite," only available on your phone – along with its original content base. Reno 911! the first Quibi series not to appear on Quibi – and again the best thing is the platform has to offer right now. (Takes his own Quibi game for Polygon Speed
Quibi calls some of his films non-fiction or scriptu "- they are ongoing narratives that are separated into short sequences. Reno 911! no problem. The show has always been about the design of the entire show – the episodes are full of clips on the station, or the officials answer the calls, so they are just built for a "quick bite." The move to Quibi from Comedy Central just means that there are a few quick bites per episode.
Three episodes sent to critics make it sound like the show never goes away. But episode 12 Reno 911! the revival is as fresh to new viewers as it is to diehard fans. The show hasn't had much progress, so there's nothing to gain. Although some of the stories take on multiple plots (the love of one cop and the final marriage of a murderous assassin, for example), those arcs are insignificant, other than the way they provide other goofs. The character development in the show is no exception. The hopeless Trudy Wiegel (Kerri Kenney-Silver) remains empty. The loudmouth Deputy Jones (Cedric Yarbrough) is always crying.
There is still plenty to reward longtime fans, however, as the new series not only recovers a cop, but the repetitive discounts they face, including drug addict Big Mike (Toby Huss), and problems such as Dangle's ongoing problems with owning. bicycle theft, and often dangerous motor vehicle traffic involving Deputy Junior (Robert Ben Garant).
Most importantly, the strong sense of humor of the comic has remained strong. From the first scene of the revival, where Jones kidnaps a white woman by calling police because black kids are in a neighbor's pool, she found out she called because the kids were drowning, apparently the creative team – Lennon, Garant, and Kenney-Silver – are not just repeating what they did before. They are reviewing their coworkers, and reflect on how the perception of the police community has changed in the ten years since the show was the last on the air.
The departure of the show in Quibi feels natural and that Quibi's short-sighted view of reality is in line with how we often see news about police on social media. Episode 2 shows that COPs are being watched by local teenagers, aiming to upload videos to the Internet, and then the vertical position to mimic the phone videos they can shoot. A portion of the future features live crash prints of a dangerous prank, and a closer look includes a bunch of comments and favs, as if we were watching the broadcast itself.
Review of the first Quibi program slide has been less than stellar, and others Wide drawing. But if something changes this practice, Reno 911! revival. Even though the show was not originally built for Quibi, it is ready for the platform, since it is always built for a nice Quibi roundabout. It is cleverly written, and cleverly adheres to the Flip Flipping platform's direction. And like the cherry on top of the cake simply being a good show, the series has a built-in fanbase. If Reno 911! it cannot renew Quibi's reputation, nothing can.
