Walker: Season Two DVD review

Oct 06, 2022- Permalink

Jared Padalecki stars in Walker, a reboot of the popular Chuck Norris show Walker, Texas Ranger which aired in the 1990s. Padalecki plays Cordell Walker, a legendary officer in Texas’ investigative law enforcement agency. He’s a widower and a father of two. In the show’s second season, Walker finds himself having to deal with new neighbours, the Davidsons, who have moved back to the ranch next store. This development dredges up a childhood trauma shared between the two families. Series regulars include Lindsey Morgan, Ashley Reyes, Molly Hagan, Keegan Allen, Violet Brinson, Kale Culley, Coby Bell, Jeff Pierre, Odette Annable and Mitch Pileggi. Paramount is releasing Walker: Season Two on DVD and I had an early look.

The first season was initially released on DVD but later on Blu-ray so there’s a chance that Paramount will do that again but just wanted to cover both bases in the market. The DVD video is in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio. It’s quite a good looking DVD transfer with a pleasing colour palette and as much detail as the DVD format can offer.

On the audio side, the release comes with an English Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack and English SDH subtitles. Dialogue is clear and centred and though not totally immersive, the surrounds do provide some extra spacing during action sequences.

The twenty episodes of season two are spread over five discs. The extras consist of some deleted scenes and a gag reel.

As mentioned, Season One was recently released on Blu-ray, so you might want to wait and see if that happens here. If you’re a fan of the show and still on the DVD format, then the Walker: Season Two DVD is a good buy.
