Hope you enjoyed that Reno 911 series finale in July

In the Twitter era, where else would we get the news that Comedy Central has canceled the long-running Reno 911 after six seasons. Lt. Jim Dangle (Thomas Lennon) tweeted that "Reno 911 was canceled at 1:30 pm today," and even more tragically that he "won't be wearing the shorts again." Never say never, Lennon, there's always conventions.
That means, though, that the July 8th episode was the series finale. By any standards, 88 episodes is a good run for a series, but it's always a little disappointing when a long-running show like Reno 911 gets canceled between seasons. It means that the creators will never get a chance to write an "ending" for their series.
While Reno 911 was fresh and exciting when it first started, I kind of got bored with what it was doing after awhile. I'm not saying it was a bad show, because it was groundbreaking in so many ways with the mockumentary presentation and extensive ad-libbing by the brilliantly talented cast.
What will you miss most in a world without the Reno Sheriff's Department to protect and serve?
