Where the Wild West Still Lives

The Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo is an event every Texan or “wanna be” Texan should attend at least once. It’s been an annual fixture on the Houston calendar since 1932.

Now I could bounce all over the map and find movies and TV series to fit the criteria. But I’m going to stick close to home and talk about films and series where the action is set in Texas.
