Yes, the show is unrealistic. Obviously it is unrealistic. Nobody could drive like Walker does and survive, nor could he have such cowboy law enforcement attitude.
I am often considered a stodgy intellectual who can't have some fun by my fellow college students, so I can't believe I am the one saying this.....but to those people saying the show is excessive and unrealistic, making the show bad because of that, I say: LIGHTEN UP!!!
Man you people have no lives. Is criticizing movies all you have in your boring, pathetic lives?
Walker is unrealistic. However, it has redeeming value in highlighting good vs. evil, the spiritual side of people, human struggles (those with disease on the show who Walker shows compassion on etc.), and the infamous end of the show at CD's when they always end with some feel-good, cheesy moment. It has redeeming value in trying to go beyond just a cop show, to showing relationships between people and what people go through in this world.
For this, it is a worthy show to watch despite its excessive inaccuracies.
