How the hell did Walker Texas Ranger last for 9+ seasons?
Being home during the day allows you to accomplish many unimportant and menial tasks. I can catch up on my reading, lay by the pool, yada yada yada… and oh, yeah: catch fascinating daytime television marathons like….Walker Texas Ranger?
The Chuck Norris jokes are fantastic. And yes, Walker is entertaining in a B-movie type of way. Over the top, unintentionally funny, and absolutely insane. Because its absolutely insane that a network would let this show run for 9+ seasons! (The “+” indicated the TV movie made after the show’s final season, just in case you were wondering!).
A reviewer on Amazon writes: “In the world of Walker, Texas Ranger, there’s no problem that can’t be solved with a big truck, a few roundhouse kicks, and the unflappable-bordering-on-comatose cool of martial-arts-champion-turned-B-movie-star Chuck Norris”. How many CBS heads ALLOWED this to go on for so long?
Watching the show now, I just don’t understand it! I’m racking my brain to try to summon up the answers I’m looking for, and as I do, Walker is staring me in the face: morals ablaze, face as stern as ever. But hey, at least someone will help find the mother who abandoned her baby with Walker’s girlfriend DA in the supermarket. Yes, that was seriously an entire episode.
No one ever sat around a huge corporate CBS table and said, “Yanno, this Walker Texas Ranger show is kind of crazy, no? Just a little…out there?” Really? Really?!?!?!
I don’t really know how to end this, so here are a few related tidbits about everyone’s favorite (apparently!) kung fu cowboy ranger. (See! It’s asinine!)
Proof that I’ve been watching this all morning:
Proof that I’m not the only skeptic:
Chuck Norris is suing MySpace for taking the name of what he calls everything around you.
