Colorado: The Ranch

After a failed career as a semi-pro football player, black sheep Colt Bennett returns home to Iron River Ranch in Garrison, Colorado in order to help his father and brother run the family business. It’s not easy for Colt to fit in again, a fact he is reminded of nearly every day.

Garrison may be a fictitious town, but the lifestyle it embraces is very real. The Ranch leans heavily into Colorado culture. It’s clearly a show that is driven by setting, as its characters take on strong Western identities, the sound stage is decorated to small-town perfection and even the storylines focus intensely on big city living versus slow-paced life on a ranch.

And to call this series a successful depiction of Colorado culture would be an understatement. The Ranch’s fans are simply rabid for me.

Not too long ago, the series came under fire after leading man Danny Masterson faced sexaul assault allegations. The future of The Ranch felt sketchy at best; after all, if Netflix fired one of the Bennett brothers, how could this show that is about a family continue to go on?

In response to the madness, The Ranch fans across the nation rallied together to keep the show streaming. They made it clear to Netflix that they would take this series any way they could get it, Masterson or no Masterson. Garrison, Colorado had claimed a special place in their hearts and they weren’t about to give it up.
