  • Bobby sends Reno out to capture a Police Officer accused of murder – only for Reno to find himself and the suspect hunted down by a group of Salvadorian assassins. Not the classic that some may consider it to be, but a good enough episode...moreless

    8.5
    "La Mala Sombra" is not one of my all-time favourite episodes of 'Renegade' (well, not from the selection of episodes I've currently seen at time of writing), but it is a very decent episode in itself, and I enjoyed it more than the previous instalment, "Final Judgement".



    Reno must capture a (Hispanic) Police Officer who has been accused of murder after daring to testify against corrupt colleagues... sound familiar?!

    There are many nice parallels between his case and that of Reno, but I did feel that these could have been made even stronger in places.



    I enjoyed the plot of this one, and felt that the guest performers were cast well. There are also some decent action sequences.



    Not much more to say on this one. The episode currently holds a 9.8 rating on TV.com at time of writing (February 2011); I wouldn't rate it that high – it may have a good plot, but it does sag a bit in places, and maybe could have been a bit sharper in a couple of spots. But I like it enough to still give it a very reasonable 8.5 out of 10.moreless
