Before the television networks abandoned Saturday night as a lost cause, Walker, Texas Ranger was a welcome oasis of karate chops, comfortably predictable plots, and the steely-eyed glare of Mr. Chuck Norris. This seven disc set from the debut season has 26 episodes (3 additional eps were previewed midweek during the spring before the full season aired later that year) and includes the pilot introducing Cordell Walker (Norris), a Texas Ranger in Dallas who kicks butt and barely takes names. Walker is joined by a rag tag group of law enforcement pals — and surprising guest stars (Tobey Maguire!) — to help hunt down the criminals, but Norris is the only draw here, despite his automaton line delivery, because of the collection’s total blank on EXTRAS. Nonetheless, Walker remains a tasty bit of Grade A prime Chuck.
