    'Walker, Texas Ranger' gets woke reboot, to star 'gay, conservative' character

    Fans of the original may be less than thrilled

    Beloved CBS show "Walker, Texas Ranger" is set for a reboot, but some fans may be less than thrilled to hear that the show is also slated to undergo a couple of woke changes.


    For instance, Sgt. Cordell Walker's new partner will be a woman and his younger brother will be gay.

    I don't think I'd be going out on a limb to say that the main reason the original show was successful was due to Chuck Norris.
    I don't think bringing the show back with a bunch of gimmicks is going to be an improvement.

    All these woke shows fail miserably.

    Gees! This Gay thing has become popular. Mrs. Buttgieg would be President? His husband would be first "Guy". Buttgieg would be President and first Lady?
    No the Founding Fathers did not see this coming.

    How did this warrant a re-boot? “Woke”
    or not.

    If it was not for Chuck Norris it would have fizzled after the first episode.

    Never liked the original, thought it was stupid. Maybe this one will be better.

    Never cared for the show myself, but it did go for 9 seasons. That's pretty a respectable run, so apparently it was quite popular.

    I just find it disappointing how often Hollywood and the TV industry try to reboot popular old movies/TV shows - usually with less than stellar success. It seems creativity is dying quickly in those industries.

    Just amazes me how the .1 percent of the population has such a big voice.

    Signed up for CBS all access so I could watch the new series Picard, and Star Trek Discovery. Discovery couldn't make more than a few episodes without the ghey coming out.

    I want my phasers, Klingon battles, and the captain putting the wood to green alien ladies. Not the doctor and some other "scotty" type kissing on my 50" hi def flat screen. Please stop it.

    just like Hollywood to take something good and F. It up. Getting very tired of agenda shows.

    If Chuck Norris hadn't starred in the original series, it wouldn't have had anything to attract audiences. His name, and his fans of Lone Wolf McQuade, is what kept it running.

    If there's enough Millennial viewers who aren't Chuck Norris fans, and who want to see a cop show originally based upon a well known and loved action star, but without a well known and loved action star, it might have a chance.

    What's next, reboot Hunter and call it Gilmore Girls with a Badge? :p

    Personally, I thought the original Walker was a pablum laden, watered down vehicle for Norris to have a TV series. I tried watching it a few times, but realized it was basically TJ Hooker with kicks and a western hat.

    The original featured a "person of color" as a co-star.
