"It's so odd to see that the final season of Walker, Texas Ranger, especially with Walker, Trivette, Gage, Sydney and Alex rather than seeing C.D. Parker in early seasons. But anyway, here are the episodes that are on the 9th and final seaosn. (The show debuted in the spring of 1993 so it technically has aired as a mid-season replacement before being ordered a full season that fall.)
1.) Home of the Brave 2.) Deadly Situation 3.) White Buffalo 4.) The Avenging Angel 5.) The Winds of Change 6.) Lazurus 7.) Turning Point 8.) Retribution 9.) Child of Hope 10.) Faith 11.) Golden Boy 12.) Desperate Measures 13.) Division Street 14.) Saturday Night 15.) Justice for All 16.) 6 Hours 17.) Medieval Crimes 18.) Legends 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."

"I am like many people who have been waiting for this series to come out onto DVD - excited that it is finally happening, but also a bit perplexed as to why the last season and not the first. The only thing I can think of is that this season is being released first to pay tribute to Noble Willingham who played CD Parker. CD Parker dies in the last season (He's never seen again after mid-Season 8 but the Rangers are informed of his death and CD's funeral is shown in the fourth episode of this season - and then the nature of his death is revealed in the series finale). Noble Willingham died January 2004. He left the series to run for a political office (and lost).
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."
People trump the critics

"The Amazon review/description shows the gap that exists between "critics" and the media elite on the one hand, versus the viewing public on the other. CBS did nothing to promote this show, whose traditional values (as recounted with disdain by Amazon) did not jell with trendy executive values. But Walker's consistently high ratings over nine seasons meant the network could not afford to cancel it. I plan to buy this DVD the first day it is out."
So when do we get the other seasons :(

"I'll be completely honest that I never watched Walker: Texas Ranger while it was airing new episodes. I've caught a few here and there of course, but never took the show seriously. I had 2 weeks of vacation, and for some reason my mother had this collection sitting in with her dvd collection. She said that she never watched it. I was at a loss as to why she'd spend money on it. Then I put in the first disc. 3 days later I had watched them all. I was honestly moved by a few episodes. This series was entirely overlooked, and thanks to this collection, I am a Walker fan. I seriously hope that the previous seasons are all released in the near future."

"I watch the reruns of this show every morning while I am getting ready for work. I even tape it so I can watch it again that evening in case I missed something. I have been searching for the DVD sets of these series. I just purchased The Final Season. You must bring out all nine seasons for purchase. This is a must for my collection. I absolutely love Walker, Texas Ranger, the characters, the story lines, the message that it sends on how to live your life. It's was a wonderful series and we need more like this on TV today.
