Audience Reviews for The Ranch: Season 1

    The Ranch Season 1 Short Review By JZ The Ranch Cast: Danny Masterson as Rooster Bennett Ashton Kutcher as Cole Bennett Sam Elliot as Beau Bennett Elisha Cuthbert Abby Season 1 is about Cole Bennett Ashton Kutcher returning to the Iron River ranch after leaving home 15 years prior to being a Football player who threw out his knee and had to retire. The premise of season 1 is Cole returning home to a failing ranch and all the drama that comes with it. The first season is full of laughter, Drama, Nut punching, Gut Wrenching fun. You will laugh, You will Cry, You will want to hit your TV at times due to how realistic and believable the characters are. If you are a fan of That 70's Show or a fan of Ashton Kutcher in general you will love this show. You will love this show, For fans of Danny Masterson you will love his character of Rooster. Sadly Rooster's character was written out later in the show due to Danny Masterson having been found guilty of a crime back in the late 90's. I hope she gets justice but I'm upset that she waited over 20 years to come forward.

    77/100 i watched till 5, its a good show

    It might have lasted 8 seasons, but it lost me after eight minutes of lame jokes and canned laughter. If they had opened the show ON THE RANCH as the title implies, instead of inside, it might have had a chance. But by opening as a typical indoor formulaic sitcom it was DOA with me.

    It stared boring but... it also ended boring.

    Kelso and Hyde are all grow'd up (sort of) and live on a cattle ranch with Sam Elliot who portrays a cowboy version of Red Forman, and predictable hilarity ensues. The End.

    Your show is not enhanced by laugh tracks. It's insulting. If your jokes aren't carried by their inherent or situational humor, we shouldn't be subjected to contrived cues to laugh at them. It's a decent series, but the laugh tracks detract from the timing of the show being believable which detracts from the situation being believable. This is not That 70s Show. The actors are not assault-y scientologists. Don't try and force it to be so. e: I know you guys think that most people are dipshits, and they are. But You really don't need to spam laugh tracks to tell us when to laugh. If it's funny, let it be funny without subjecting us to the same contrived laughs over and over.

    One thing that bothered me the most from the show is the inconsistency. One day they're doing really good the next day the most trivial thing becomes the worse fight in the relationship, be it father-son or husband-wife. I can't find the logic in most of the fights at all. It's funny because a lot of TV shows are unrealistic because of plot armor or how positive everything is compared to real life, this is the first show that I find unrealistic because of the opposite: how absurdly negative it is compared to real life.

    Sam Elliot is a comedy star in this sitcom! Towards Part 5 things get at their best! I loved Danny Masterson and Ashton Kutcher's characters and stories! 🙌🏼

    "SIMPLE Y ENCANTADORA" Tal vez "The Ranch" no sea la Sitcom favorita, pero es una que se agradece, no exige mucho para verla y a su vez se desfruta por su sencillez, con un gran reparto que ya trabajaba juntos antes, pero la joya aparte del ambiente que en lo personal me encanta, Sam Elliot hace un papel increíble, sin duda lo mas notable de la serie.

    Love the show but Abby and Maggie are written as biches, selfish shrewd all the female character write a female that's not a drug addict, selfish bisexuals who ruin the family WTF WITH women on the show
