The following is a list of episodes from the American television series Walker, Texas Ranger.
While "Due South" lasted only three years and "EZ Streets" lasted only three episodes, this dumb brute of a show keeps on living in syndication.
It's just another example of the symbiosis between network television and pure junk.
Although some sources identify the first three episodes aired at the end of the 1992–1993 television season, as the first season (making nine seasons in the series overall), This two-hour premiere episode introduces Cordell Walker (Chuck Norris), a contemporary Texas Ranger.
During a bank robbery in Fort Worth, Ranger Cordell Walker's partner Bob Mobley (Steven Ruge) is killed.
After a bomb explodes in a bank across town which has just gotten in a valuable shipment, everyone goes to that bank. In the first regular season, Noble Willingham took over the role starting with the episode, "Bounty." Clarence Gilyard joined the cast, after departing his role on Matlock. But Alex has no proof that Baker is the man who is now stalking her.
When the actual robbery starts at the other four banks, it falls to Walker in an effort to catch the robbers and their leader, former CIA agent Orson Wade (Marshall Teague). That is because Baker is having his former cell mate Duane Hopkins (Mark Walters) do the stalking for him. And as soon as Baker doesn't need Hopkins anymore, he kills Hopkins.
Walker's new partner, Ranger James Trivette (Clarence Gilyard), has a history with one of the suspects in the robbery. Alex Cahill is trying to prosecute cop killer Benny Carl Devlin (Ray Lykins), she gets a veiled threat from former Cuervo County sheriff Dewey Baker (Leon Rippy) – the first person she ever put away.
Trying to solve the case, Walker discovers that the robbery could have been a test for a much bigger goal: simultaneously robbing four banks lying next to each other. Alex had put Baker away because he routinely beat up suspects, and he terrorized anyone who complained about it.
