If this happens, I hope its one season and done! - Best thing about the original was its theme song.

No, the best thing to come out of the show was The Lever.

There was nothing good about that show.

How it lasted 9 seasons is beyond me.

And for whatever reason I keep hearing the theme to "Psycho Dad" from Married w Children when I think of Walker

My father watched the original show, and I absolutely hated it. I do like Chuck Norris as a movie star, but that show was horrible.

The only thing I liked was the theme song. It was kind of corny-cool.

If someone like Stephen J. Cannell had created and produced the show, it might have worked as he had the sensibilities to make concepts work with his tongue-in-cheek approach (The Rockford Files, The A-Team and The Greatest American Hero).

As it was, it was treated as highly serious drama by all involved and was just laughable and cliché filled throughout.

Conan O'Brien was the best thing to happen to the show.

This is the gold standard of starting a thread just to
bash.
