Storyline

In this spinoff of Walker: Texas Ranger, Detective Carlos Sandoval resigns from the Dallas Police after his partner is murdered. He then hooks up with childhood chum Trent Malloy, an ex-military martial arts instructor. Together they decide to form a private investigation business. Trent's brother, Tommy, and ex-cop turned bartender Butch McMahon help them out from time to time. The cynical Detective Ryan fills the Inspector Lestrade role. Sometimes this show delves into darker territory than its predecessor. Written by Ronos

This show was the best, why did it have to be taken off?! It was action paked and it talked about real life events and how to help! BRING BACK SOT!

Sons Of Thunder is kind of violent.....so is Walker, Texas Ranger. BIG DEAL! Sons Of Thunder was doing so good and had great ratings and when it didn't come back for the fall line-up I was mad. CBS has taken off GREAT shows and put on some BORING ones. Yes, sons of thunder was a GREAT show and it had no right to be taken off the air JUST like that. It's totally like The Magnificent Seven....heck will you just bring those two shows back. I miss them. VOTE FOR SONS OF THUNDER AND THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN!!!!
