It’s been nearly 18 years since Walker Texas Ranger went off the air. The reruns have sustained me, during the interim and, as I watch an episode I have saved on DVR, I cannot help but won’t why they don’t pull this out of mothballs and do it all over again.
I realize that Chuck Norris is nearing 80 and that his best days are behind him. I wonder why C.D.’s bar and grill couldn’t remain the Ranger hangout, with Walker running the place. They could have some of the cops … Glen Cooper could be a Ranger and, provided they could arrange it, Trivette could be brought back in the position that was Walker’s, previously.
I recall that at the end of the final movie, Alex had been shot. She could be brought back in a wheelchair and Angela Walker, who was born during the final season, could become a character as well.
The possibilities are numerous! I’d love to tune in, once again. Also, I recall that, when they brought the old Dallas program back to life, they made it a twice-yearly program, where they filmed six episodes and those were shown in the spring, while another six were shown in the fall. This format kept the program on air until Larry Hagman died, although I originally thought they were planning to kill of Bobby AND J.R. and let the next generation take over.
In my imagination, I keep hoping WTR will return, with the next generation having taken over and the old pro’s being their mentors.
It’s good to have dreams….RIGHT?
