Good action show!
19 September 2005 | by (Marlow, England) – See all my reviews

From Stephan J Cannell, creator of shows like The A Team and Greatest American Hero, comes Renegade. Cannell is widely experienced in TV, with countless production credits and many creative credits too. Renegade is a good standard action series, with decent production values and has a simple premise, and is easy to get into. It's not too fantastical for those who never got into shows like Buffy or Xena, it's just good repetitious fun like A-Team, Incredible Hulk and Knight Rider. You have a scenario that is always repeated. In Renegade, Lorenzo Lamas is a bounty hunter and ex-cop on the run from the law. He was set up by his old boss, his wife shot and left for dead, and Lorenzo was framed for the murder of a cop. Now he must get try to prove his innocence but for the time being he collects bounty's to pay for the hospital bills for is vegetative girl, who is only alive through life support, she will never regain consciousness. So each episode follows the pattern of Lorenzo collecting bounties, coming into contact with people who aren't what the seem. It is not a cohesive show running on an interconnected story like say 24, there is no real continuity, except mentions back to the hospitalised bird, so if you watch episode 6 before 3 for example it's not going to cause problems. It's a new story for each episode entirely separate from the last, like David Banner or the A -Team who roam place to place, Reno Raines is also a drifter moving through the USA helping people.

This show was very successful, in fact one of Cannell's most successful, and although not as iconic or worldwide famous as A- Team, it actually ran longer. The show had a 5 year run which isn't bad going in this day and age, where a second season is almost a godsend for some network shows. Renegade is a well made action series. Each episode will treat you to some action, while the acting is quite good. Lorenzo makes a good lead. He has a movie star quality and it is a surprise that he has never made it bigger in the movie world, particularly as an action star. He has more acting ability than many fellow action men, yet of course starring in low budget Z-movies doesn't have the same inspiration as he got from his hit shows like Renegade, Falcon Crest and currently with The Bold and The Beautiful. Lamas after all is a Golden Globe nominee. Lamas is of course a capable action man with his martial arts background, and most who have seen his shows or movies will know, he loves to pose for the camera, and clearly loves himself, he has a cocky, showy air of the Hoff (Dave Hasselhoff!) about him. Branscombe Richmond offers excellent support as Lama's helper Bobby Sixkiller, while Kathleen Kinmont is stunning to behold. She really is fine, and the show takes delight in milking that fact with her wearing an array of revealing outfits.

Overall a good show that from the episodes I have seen is blessed with some capable guest stars and proudly allows Lamas and is perfect pantene hair to get into many a good scrape.
