Can we please get Chuck Norris a new facial expression?
Seriously, this guy has the same self-satisfied countenance whether he's being coy with his wife or committing acts of police brutality on what have to be the world's most stereotypical criminals, whether he's at a big ol' Texas barbeque or watching the state execute a mentally retarded prisoner convicted despite the flimsy evidence against him.
Not that this is the worst flaw of the show. That honor would probably go to the way it patronizes women, children, the elderly, crime victims, members of any non-Caucasian ethnic group, and anybody else who doesn't routinely commit acts of gratuitous violence. Frankly, I'm getting so sick of Norris's holier-than-thou attitude that I want him to get run over by an ice cream truck or die in a horrible cow tipping accident to wipe that smug expression off his face.
The really sad part of "Walker" is that it's creator Paul Haggis's only show to really have any sort of life. While "Due South" lasted only three years and "EZ Streets" lasted only three episodes, this dumb brute of a show keeps on living in syndication. It's just another example of the symbiosis between network television and pure junk.
