The best show not to appear in the fall lineup.
20 October 1999 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

After watching the "Sons Of Thunder" on Walker, Texas Ranger for close to two seasons, I was looking forward to finally seeing them on their own. The six show teaser CBS put out was fantastic, and a sure hit for the fall line up. The show did not appear in the line up, though.

This show was great, and had all the elements of an enjoyable family show. Sure, it was a little violent at times, but then again so are afternoon cartoons. Sons Of Thunder showed that friendship counts more than getting ahead in the world, and good guys always win. It never preached like some other shows did.

All and all, a great show.....greatly deserving of a place in any lineup.
