    Okay, so I've never actually seen any episodes, but I watched Trent and Carlos on Walker, Texas Ranger.  I've never really though anything about the name of the show, except that Trent was Thunder Malloy's son. 

    Then, I heard my pastor preaching on the apostles, James and John, and he mentioned their nickname were "The Sons of Thunder"*.  I had forgotten that, but now I'm thinking--do you think that's where the name for the show came from?

    I've never seen the show either and I've seen them on Walker. I thought the name came from the two boys, Trent & Tommy Malloy, since I seen the younger brother was on there too. But the episode on Walker that introduced them was named 'Sons of Thunder' and that was supposed to be like a pre-pilot type of thing. So maybe they just took it from that.

    I'm sure the phrase "Sons of Thunder" is a reference to the Bible, especially given that Thunder Malloy was a preacher. However it kind of takes on a new context with Carlos and Trent opening Thunder Investigations. By the by, there are actually THREE Malloy boys; Trent and Tommy have two little siblings, Taylor and Tandy.

    And that concludes my useless thoughts for the day.
