Dino Ranch

TV Series Review

Some kids grow up on a dude ranch, riding horses and wrangling cattle. But siblings Jon, Min and Miguel live on a dino ranch, riding dinosaurs and wrangling…er, other dinosaurs.

Theirs may not be the most traditional of farms or families, but Ma and Pa have created a happy and loving home for their three adoptive youngsters and the multitude of domesticated dinos living on their land.

Jurassic Farm

Each 12-minute episode has Jon, Min and Miguel going on a new adventure. And each adventure teaches something new, whether it’s how to be brave even when you’re scared or knowing when it’s OK to ask for help.

And parents worried about big and scary dinosaurs can rest easy. The creatures on this show aren’t scary—or even big, really. Pa rides a T-Rex that’s roughly the size of a horse. And even the grumpiest dino, a triceratops named Angus, is easily placated with turnips.

With its positive messages and friendly dinosaurs, Dino Ranch is a show that even the most sensitive of kiddos can enjoy without fear.

Jan. 18, 2021: “Big Jon Big Trouble”

When the Dino Ranch gets a new dinosaur that likes to literally bop heads with other dinos, the ranchers have to teach him how to behave so he won’t upset the other animals.

Angus gets angry when he’s woken up from his naps twice. He storms through the farm, knocking down everything in his path (though the ranchers are able to calm him down and restore the property later).

Someone tells a fib.

Latest Reviews


Punky Brewster

Punky Brewster isn’t a reboot. And it’s not quite the same family-friendly sitcom older fans might remember, either.


Ginny & Georgia

Ginny & Georgia is, at best, trashy escapism not fit for the teens it’s aimed at. At worst, it’s just plain trash.


Superman & Lois

While Superman will always be there to save the world, he needs to be present for Lois and his sons now.
