Saw and Thought was awful
27 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the Sons of Thunder promo TV movie years ago and thought it was absolutely awful. Completely over acted and predictable. Reminded me of a bad 70's Television night time drama like MacMillan and Wife or Sheriff Lobo. I'm so glad this never was made into a series. Awful!!!! What Does Jimmy Wlcek do for a living now. I see he's done very little acting since SOT. Why no picture on the website for IMDb? I like Wlcek as an actor anyone know why he never made it big? Could it be just no luck or bad choices. Is there going to be another Walker Texas Ranger series? Chuck Norris was exceptional and seems like a good person. I see him hawking these work out machines on paid advertising lately. Is that all he does today?
