Texas Ranch House

Last night was the final episode of Texas Ranch House on PBS. Did you see it? Oh, man—don’t you think Mr. and Mrs. Cooke were awful? I can’t believe he tried to rip off his ranch hands by inflating the value of those horses! Why would he try to screw the very people who made the drive a success?

And Mrs. Cooke let the garden bolt, even after the expert explained it needed tending. She also left those disgusting, food-laden, fly-infested dishes to rot in the sun for 8 days! And her excitement when Mr. Cooke threatened to “beat the shit out of” Jared—how fucked up was that?

I don’t watch an awful lot of TV, but I really enjoy these types of shows—so far, my all-time favorite is Manor House. Now that was a power struggle!


Have a great weekend, everyone. See you on Monday.

What I worry about is the state of health care at the hospital where Mr Cooke was the administrator. Yikes, I'd hate to be a patient there.

The judges properly gave the Cookes a failing grade.

How can you be hungry when you have food rotting because you're too lazy to pick it and bitch about the flies when you're too lazy to clean up after your selves.

Exactly, Rick! Mrs. Cooke spent the bulk of her time complaining and scheming instead of actually working. Her getting “sick” just before the party and having another woman come in to do everything was especially telling, I think.

And you raise a good point about Mr. Cooke—he had such a hard time making pretend decisions, it really makes me wonder how well his real-world, life-or-death choices pan out. Yikes!
