Chuck Norris' extreme right wing politics, including his condemnation of homosexuality, haven't helped either.

And then came Chuck Norris' horrifically homophobic comments that pretty much killed any chance of the show getting any kind of respect again.

* CompleteMonster: Victor [=LaRue=] is the worst in a show that did not believe in giving villains subtlety. A lunatic who kidnaps and kills others seemingly at random, when [=LaRue=] captured Alexander Cahill amongst other hostages, he attempted to rape her. In his second episode, [=LaRue=] is released from prison and begins stalking Alex to drive her insane. He attempts to rape Alex again before he is arrested. In his third and final episode, [=LaRue=] gets a gun at his trial and murders his own lawyer, the judge and the bailiff, taking the courtroom hostage. While waiting for Walker to arrive, he presides over the court as a “judge.” In his insane whims, he orders a divorced couple to get back together for their child, but when the child contradicts [=LaRue=], he decides to “reopen” the hearing, planning to [[WouldHurtAChild murder the kid]]. [=LaRue=] kills his other ally when the man [[EvenEvilHasStandards is disgusted by this]]. Finally, he attempts to rape Alex for the third time before Walker busts in and guns him down.

** The hate groups, especially in "Soldiers of Hate", where the group planned to bomb an entire community center full of men, women, and children because they are "a bunch of inferiors and traitors who dare to associate with said inferiors". Luckily, Walker and company beat their asses down before they could murder the whole community.
** Three spoiled rich guys who beat up homeless people and record it commit arson on a building full of families, why? Because they were '''bored'''. Walker managed to help rescue a child in the burning building before hunting down the arsonists and beating their asses in.

* {{Anvilicious}}: We get it. Criminals are scum. That's no excuse for thinking we won't know it unless they are [[CompleteMonster Complete Monsters]] or at least KickTheDog in every other scene.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: All the BulletTime scenes in "The Final Showdown" (a missile hitting a Huntsville Prison watchtower, a bullet felling a Texas Ranger, Walker's bullet hitting Lavocat's gun scope) because they were made with crude CGI effects from the time, which may have looked good back then, but stick out like a sore thumb now. Plus, the finale aired around the time ''Film/TheMatrix'' had just debuted in theaters and people were trying to play copycat all over.
