Trivia

When Walker is bitten by the rattler he makes several mistakes. First he jumps out of the truck, where he has just thrown the snake, increasing his blood pressure. 2nd He is holding his arm up and then cuts into it. Third He holds his arm further up while a wraps a tourniquet round the wound area and pulls it tight with his teeth, instead of further up his arm to halt the poison. How did he survive. See more »

Goofs

This episode was the first appearance of 19th century Texas Ranger Ace Cooper. In his episode we learn that Cooper was killed in the line of duty while trying to recover a cash of gold stolen by a ruthless gang. However in the last season of the show we learn that Cooper not only survived but took over as the sheriff of a small town and has a family (this family will eventually lead to a Great Great Grandson that Walker helps at the beginning of the season). Along with that is two different tellings of how Cooper became a ranger. In the first version he was avenging the murder of his parents and was offered the badge. In the second he was a bounty hunter that took over for a ranger that was killed by outlaws. See more »

Worst Episode of the Series
7 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen all 182 episodes of "Walker, Texas Ranger" (182 counting 2-parters as 1 episode and counting the 4-part episode with Michael Ironside as the Chairman as 1 episode), and I can honestly say that this is the worst episode. The plot is bland and the poor pacing does not help anything. I would rank it slightly higher if it was only a regular hour-long episode, but a 2-part episode for the bland plot only made the episode worse than it had to be. The episode just drags on and on.

The only memorable aspect of this episode was Walker getting bit by a rattlesnake. Apparently, the Hayes Cooper debut episode was so horrible that it was written out of the series' continuity, and subsequent Hays Cooper episodes ignored this episode.
