Sons of Thunder was a spin-off of popular CBS action series "Walker, Texas Ranger." After having appeared in multiple episodes over a few year span, the characters got their own show. Though it was highly rated, CBS decided not to renew it for fear of budget issues. It was one of the highest rated shows not picked up that season, but gained quite the cult following while it was on the air.
The team is hired by a sleazy mob boss who is claiming to try to find his "wife." Understanding that he just wants Thunder Investigations to bring the girl to him, the guys take the job as they are still financially in trouble. After taking the case, they turn their backs on the mob boss and must help the woman before she is found by one of the boss' henchman.
