Trivia

Protagonist Lorenzo Lamas was not thrilled with the scripts of the series' first season. In a 1993 interview, Lamas also criticized the series' formula for having several notable plot holes: "Reno would just show up to where he needed to be, but how did he get there? Why doesn't he leave the country? Why does he hang around and wait to be picked up by a cop who sees his poster?" See more »

Goofs

California enacted a mandatory helmet law in 1992, after the first season of Renegade, it would be very foolish for a man wanted by the law to ride without a helmet. Reno Raines seldom wears a helmet, and in California would be stopped frequently for the violation. See more »

User Reviews

one of the biggest wastes of tv space ever
12 January 1999 | by gerd-2See all my reviews

i've watched this programme far too often for my own good and must agree with that brit that it's atrocious. I hate lorenzo lamas and the guy that plays bobby sixkiller. the plot is paper thin and steve cannell should stick to typing on and trowing paper in end credits.

the most irritating thing about this irritating programme is the bit at the start, you know the bit, where the voice says "he was a cop and good at his job, but he committed the ultimate sin and testified against other cops......GONE BaaaaaD".

this must be the most hair-tearing, screen punching, vomit inducing, horror filled intro in the history of television itself. i hate this show, please hate it too.
