Did You Know?


CBS had plans for movie sequels, but those got scrapped after Trial By Fire received poor ratings. See more »


After fighting the Asians for the first time, Walker briefs his subordinate Rangers that the criminals are Korean. There's no way he could know that for sure, and it's also questionable whether his subordinates will be able to tell the difference between a (North or South) Korean and an Asian of another nationality, or even ethnicity.

Love the show except for the end
16 October 2005 | by peggy_03037See all my reviews

This has a two great story lines and the only thing I can object to is the Koreans' stunts. They seemed UNREAL. Looks like this is either the total end of the shows or perhaps an attempt at a comeback. I sure hope it's the comeback because 1) you can't us wondering and 2) the story isn't done yet please! Walker is the same great man we've always known. I missed Tirvette, Alex is wonderful as usual and the Walker's little daughter is adorable. The boy whose father was murdered was an excellent character and he was certainly brave. The young boys were both good, believable actors. I just couldn't believe the Koreans. They were totally evil and their energy was unreal. They were impossible to contain. The one person I missed the most was CJ. He played such a part in the story. I did enjoy the show. It had all the old elements and the light touch of forensics was delightful. I like the fact that its story line wasn't just like all the other forensic shows. Walker, we really miss you.
