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 (Good Guys Wear Black, Forced Vengeance). As Texas Ranger Cordell "Cord" Walker, Norris helmed this fusion of karate chops and cowboy hats for nine seasons; for some reason, the last season is being released on DVD before any of the earlier ones. By this point, the show's formula--non-stop action and high drama with no concern for common sense or coherent storytelling--has been honed to a science. No opportunity for peril is overlooked, particularly when it affords Walker a heroic moment. In the season's first episode, firemen recoil from a burning building, but Walker strides in without a word (and without any of that cumbersome protective gear) to rescue a cute boy and his loyal dog. This is refined cheese: Bad guys wear evil on their sleeves and criminal masterminds act like morons whenever it's convenient to conclude the episode. Norris wisely keeps his dialogue to a minimum, usually curt commands to his multi-ethnic troupe of high-kicking Rangers (Clarence Gilyard Jr., Judson Mills, and Nia Peeples) or warm endearments to his beloved wife Alex (Sheree Wilson). Most episodes bounce between a couple of overlapping high-tension elements (say, arms dealers and an outbreak of the Ebola virus), though this season also features an epic four-episode arc about a villainous computer genius known as "The Chairman" (Michael Ironside, Scanners, Starship Troopers). The standard two-pronged attack can be amazingly effective; no matter how absurdly the characters may behave, the next stirring scene is underway before anyone has time to notice. It's as addictive as potato chips. Fans will find Walker, Texas Ranger: The Final Season crunchy and completely satisfying. --Bret Fetzer

In the last episode of season 6 of Walker Texas Ranger, the title is
"In Harm's Way - part 1. I thought part 2 would continue in the next
season, which would be season 7. I have season 7 (final season) and it's
not part 2,"In Harm's Way". The first episode in Season 7 should be, "In Harm's Way - part 2. Could you please explain to me what happened. I'm very disappointed in that. Thank you!!!!

As for this season itself, the season starts after the wedding of Alex and Cordell and ends with the birth of their child. It includes many good (perhaps even great) episodes such as:
"Home of the Brave": (the season's first episode) Walker struggles to rescue a boy trapped in the basement of an apartment building after a bomb was detonated.
"White Buffalo": A statue of a white buffalo begins to shed tears at the same time the Texas Rangers are battling a new drug called 'White Buffalo'.
"Faith": Dionne Warwick plays a grandmother raising her granddaughter (who desperately needs an organ transplant to live).
"Desperate Measures": Gage unknowingly travels with two escaped convicts after his motorcycle breaks down.
"Legends": Martial arts legends (such as Bill 'Superfoot' Wallace and Don 'The Dragon' Wilson) make a guest appearance.
"Without a Sound": Gage loses his hearing from a car-jacking gone wrong.
"6 Hours": As known as 'HeatherCam' A young woman is kidnapped and her death is planned to be viewed live from the Internet.
"Division Street": Hulk Hogan plays a former gang member whose life got turned around and now struggles to help rescue the other gang members on the street by opening a community center.
This season also includes a 4 part storyline that I call "The Wizard" ("The Winds of Change"; "Lazarus"; "Turning Point"; "Retribution") in which the Texas Rangers enlist the help of a computer hacker serving time in prison to battle another hacker that's getting undercover law enforcers killed.
These and about a dozen more episodes can be found in this final season. Even if this was to become the only season to be released (which I highly doubt) at least there are some good episodes to watch.
1.) Home of the Brave
2.) Deadly Situation
3.) White Buffalo
4.) The Avenging Angel
5.) The Winds of Change
7.) Turning Point
9.) Child of Hope
11.) Golden Boy
12.) Desperate Measures
13.) Division Street
14.) Saturday Night
15.) Justice for All
16.) 6 Hours
17.) Medieval Crimes
19.) Unsafe Speed
20.) Without a Sound
21.) Blood Diamonds
22.) Reel Rangeers
23/24.) The Final Show/Down (2 hr. series finale)
Great show but next time they should start from the first season. Not the last.
