Show Summary

Cordell Walker is a contemporary Texas Ranger working out of the Dallas office who believed in dealing with criminals the old-fashioned way--by beating them up. Despite the rules that governed the way law-enforcement officers were supposed to act. Walker's approach closely resembled the "eye for an eye" school of crime fighting. His partner is young Jimmy Trivette, who had grown up in the slums of Baltimore and used football as his ticket to a college education and a career with the Dallas Cowboys until he busted his shoulder. Despite Jimmy's belief in computers and scientific criminology, working with Walker, always seemed to leave him bruised and sore--when Walker was trying to get information or take people into custody it was more than likely there would be a fistfight or karate kicks. County Assistant D.A. Alex Cahill, his sometimes girlfriend, frowned on Walker's methods, even if they did get results. When not on duty Walker and the others hung out at C.D.'s, the saloon/restaurant owned by his buddy C.D. Parker, a former Ranger forced into early retirement after taking a bullet in the knee, who still provided help and advice on cases. Uncle Ray was the wise old Native American who had raised Walker. He died at the end of the 3rd season. Star Chuck Norris, former karate champion and movie star, played Walker in the deadpan unemotional style he used in most of his feature films. Nothing ever seemed to excite him, and the violence on the show had a cartoon quality about it. There was a surrealistic efficiency about Walker--he almost never broke sweat, got hurt, or wasted a blow--using violence because it was necessary but never glorying on it. This is Norris' first time in a TV series.

  • Good, but pretty laughable

    8.0
    Why does every Jim, Joe, and Billy Bob know kung fu on this show? And why the heck are people so eager to resist and assault a police officer? It seems like most of the situations could be settled with a little compliance, but for the sake of Chuck Norris having a cool fight scene they're just gonna make all the criminals idiots. And know kung fu.
  • Great Show

    I loved Walker Texas Ranger. Granted it had over the top action but the stories were great. The Walker and Trivette partnership was fantastic cause there was geniune love and respect between them. It was a modern day Lone Ranger and Tonto.

  • Good Clean Entertainment!

    Walker is a perfect example of good entertainment with out sex and extreme violence. He takes us back to when bad guys are bad and good guys are good and get rid of the bad guys. His show is exciting and good for almost all ages. I wish we had more shows like his.
  • Great Action Show

    This has to be the only Crime drama I watch and for good reason. It has Chuck Norris fighting bad guys. Often these villains are pure evil with zero redeemable traits... which makes it all the sweeter when Cordell Walker beats the crap out of them.
