TV Shows - Walker, Texas Ranger

Walker, Texas Ranger is an American television western/police drama/Action series, created by Lesie Grief and Paul Haggis. It aired on CBS with three pilot episodes followed by nine full seasons, from April 21, 1993 to May 19, 2001, was broadcast in over 100 countries, and has since spawned at least one made-for-television movie. It was originally conceived on August 6, 1987. The show was known for its moral values. For example, the characters refrained from the use of drugs, and they participated in community service. Martial arts were shown prominently as the primary tool of law enforcement and occasionally as a tool for Walker and company to reach out to the community. The show has gained a following for its camp appeal, thanks largely to its improbable combination of martial arts and modern Western genres, and to the resurgent popularity of its star, Chuck Norris.

1 I think Norris knew the show was about to go on life support when he unleashed those 'backdoor pilot' episodes for 'Sons of Thunder.' -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 30, 2014, 12:49 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I didn't expect his character to be such a touchy feely, sensitive 90's man. It did start out decent enough, but it became a cartoon eventually. Really over the top. -- Submitted By: (Bryan527) on May 23, 2012, 1:21 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 It's just silly fluff, like the A-Team. Hell, even series like NCIS which take themselves way more seriously are rife with factual inaccuracies and implausible situations. Norris is smart enough to know his limitations; he wasn't out to create high art here. His goal was a workmanlike series that would generate decent ratings for several years and make him alot of money. Mission accomplished. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 4, 2011, 2:40 am - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Seeing what Norris is about, I would tend to bet on the latter. He is not like Steven Segal or such who has such a gigantic ego, and seems well grounded, so unless something else is up, I think he is in on the joke, and uses it so he can get himself work. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 9, 2010, 8:38 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I've never been certain as to whether Norris is actually so pathologically narcissistic as to actually have believed this series was good, or if he's really much cooler than any of us realized and has been on to the joke of his film/tv persona for years. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on December 9, 2010, 5:11 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 "... so bad, that its good." Absolutely. The 'badness' of that show was 'water cooler talk' at the office for awhile for us. We laughed about how horribly over-the-top the villains were portrayed (seriously, I almost expected to see Mr. Freeze or The Penguin show up on an episode) and how virtually every episode featured an explosion somewhere. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 20, 2010, 12:52 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Yes, it was stupid, but I think it was one of those shows that it is so bad, that its good. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 18, 2010, 4:24 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I love how this show is so freaking horrible! Its great to rip on while its on, and just when you thought you saw the worst one, an even worse one follows. Its also amazing that in almost every episode, the victim of the crime they are trying to solve is associated with one of the rangers or the d.a. in some way. Knowing Walker is hazardous to your health.I also have to dig the casting directors (probably Chuck or one of his other "talented" brothers) picks for the generic bad guys. There was a Christmas episode on once that I saw, though, that made the rest of the episodes look like runaway emmy winners. -- Submitted By: (ScottHochlander) on September 17, 2010, 1:55 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Stephanie, be it Dallas or Austin, the facts remain the same for the state of Texas. All I can say about this show is that "This is bullshi.... Boned Day 1. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 10, 2010, 4:04 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Well, sometimes they were in Fort Worth too. My wife used to watch this show every week and I'd sit next to her and (as previously suggested) MST3K it at every opportunity. She was never amused. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 14, 2010, 10:53 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Bobsuruncle, "Walker, Texas Ranger" took place in Dallas, not Austin. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on December 23, 2009, 3:50 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Every word in the first comment is true. I'd add that very few people start brawling with the cops upon arrest, and if they do, they get tased and/or thrown to the grown and cuffed violently, 20 cops show up, and it's a massive incident. Whereas on this show, every single person he tries to arrest fights him until he KOs them then he just puts them in his truck and drives off. I'm waiting for him to have to arrest and old lady and she starts swinging her walker at him in a carefully choreographed scene. Still, it's one of those shows that is so bad it's enjoyable to watch. I shudder when I think of the person who takes this show seriously as a realistic example of law enforcement, but if you just want to see relatively well-done fight scenes and laughably bad plots, this show always delivers. Watch it with friends and MST3k it. It's great. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on November 10, 2009, 10:18 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
13 This show was stupid from day one. The DA and a ranger? I am a Texas cop and this would be considered a conflict of interest. Second, the rangers don't get involved that often. There is only one assigned to an area, not fifty per square foot. On the show they got involved in everything that would have been the responsibility of the Travis County SO or the Austin PD. Most rangers don't have black belts, old rangers don't run bars and still have authority, and the DA has never been kidnapped, in this show it happens once a month. About the only truth in the whole show is that nobody loves Norris more than he does. -- Submitted By: (Bobsuruncle) on June 9, 2009, 12:05 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
