Lose the laugh track
14 May 2017 | by gillian-felixSee all my reviews

The Characters... I loved that the characters are not as shallow as they appear, for example, the chemistry between Colt and Heather and how a possibly good thing can develop from a hookup.

I loved that Maggie (the mom) is woman enough to know when something is not working and she is not afraid to step out on her own. Even unlikable dad, Beau, is growing on me.

I loved Rooster's dry humor and there are times Colt really tug at my heart strings. Kutcher does serious and funny in the same scene and makes it work.

The show deals with how f*ed up family can be and shows that you can find humor in any situation.

Lose the laugh track

I wish the laugh track would go, it takes me out of the world these characters live in. The F-bombs are really not necessary because they feel fake and doesn't add anything to its delivery.

Looking ahead...

The final episode ends with a major character leaving, I am looking forward to seeing what happens there. I am rooting for Colt and Heather. Beer-bong Billy is interesting and hilarious, I hope they do more with his character.

Overall, I loved The Ranch, I binge watched all 10 episodes in less than two days.
