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.

  • 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.
  • Someguy Rudy Ramos

    I worked for the walker family off the 71 freeway at hamptons hotel. I have 2 certifications for Industrial Electrical with GPA 3.00 plus, and I am the only one in 20 years to pass the refegerator, and I was told by Jeff Shipley at 1442 north san antonio in upland CA that no one will ever score higher, but I put the 3 story of lights up all the time constantly because the sheriff are at work from the Donald Trump Show, and I see them disconnecting my lights and ruining my work, but I did nothing wrong. I don't appreciate walkers brother attacking Rudy Ramos with 30 men when I did nothing wrong, so I don't like your family telling Rudy Ramos that can't have the gifts on . that y I can't pay for CA because jokers like you are not suppose to be up here. I don't think walker can take zodiac or kimbo slice or floyd mayweater in the ring. I don't want to hear your brothers crap. Arnold is not zodiac at the la vern theatre your brother ain't going to show up either, and I am suppose to have all the gifts because Rudy Ramos is friends with Jeff not Zodiac, and I don't like your family telling Rudy Ramos anything its not your place becaue walker family don't know the difference of the 2. I am waiting to drive up the street and fight zodiac for a gift but coward keep saying this and that still won't fight zodiac. I don't want to hear your familys jokes cross the street or beat it.moreless
