TV show description:
A sitcom set in Garrison, Colorado, The Ranch follows the dysfunctional Bennett family on their Iron River Ranch. Each season of 20 episodes is split into two 10-episode parts, and Netflix primarily ignores season numbering entirely, by using the sequential “part” numbers, instead.
The multi-camera comedy centers Colt (Kutcher). After a fifteen-year absence, including a short, failed semi-pro football career, Colt returns home to help his big brother Jameson “Rooster” (Masterson) and father Beau (Elliott) run the ranch.
Maggie (Winger) is Colt and Rooster’s mother and owns the local bar. A free-spirit who also grows weed, Maggie is separated from Beau and lives in a trailer behind her business.
Rooster is the son who remained home and worked the family business, while his big shot brother was off living it up, so there is tension between them, when Colt returns. The two do have some things in common — particularly drinking and womanizing.
A prickly, Vietnam Vet, Beau has run the ranch since the death of his own father. Politicians aggravate him just about as much as his sons’ irresponsible tendencies.
The series highlights these flawed people’s relationships with one another as well as with the other people in their lives.
Episode #80 — Take Me Home, Country Roads
In the series finale, Luke opens up about his struggles, Maggie throws one last Christmas party at the bar, and Colt gives Beau a heartwarming gift.
First aired: January 24, 2020.
