Critic Reviews for Walker, Texas Ranger Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

If the purpose of drama is to provoke terror and pity in order to relieve those emotions in the audience, then Walker provided the ultimate catharsis for our band of fragile male egos.

The worst violence of all, however, might be against the Constitution.

The rangers frequently took part in community service and would never do drugs in any form. While this is respectable, it doesn't make for very compelling TV.

The individual moments are so incredible that it's not even necessary to watch the episodes.

[Norris] also sang the theme song, proving he really is the greatest human.

An ambitious undertaking that succeeds on several levels, most notably the writing and acting.

Walker, Texas Ranger would have been retrograde in 1972... I'm not even going to start to talk about how it handles racial stereotypes.

A hefty dose of cheesiness accompanies the characters' strengths and uncanny knack for exploiting criminals' routine incompetence.

Walker is the same tight-lipped, martial-arts-adept good guy he is in all his movies.

Sep 26, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Pilot is much more talk than action - did producers really believe that audiences pay to watch action stars, even one with Norris's appeal, develop as sensitive characters?
