Premise

Eagleheart follows US Marshal Chris Monsanto as he fights crime with his two partners: the slow-witted Brett and by-the-book Susie. They take on drug smugglers, art thieves, kidnappers, and con artists with bloody violence and gruesome deaths ensuing. The Marshals report to The Chief who gives them their assignments. There is little continuity between episodes in the first two seasons, with no running storylines. The third season features an extended season-long storyline entitled Paradise Rising.

Eagleheart parodies many cop shows, most notably Walker, Texas Ranger. It portrays a great deal of graphic violence.[1]
