The first season began this series off more politically based and lightly touched on the long running mysteries of the series. It made the first season run a little slow though somewhat compelling as the stories were interesting enough to make you wonder how things would turn out. In the second season and beyond it was evident that the cast had become familiar with each others styles and nuances as they payed more seamlessly as a cast and their characters became solidified and more believable. The dive into the Native American culture drove the stories forward as the stories became more complicated and involved. In the end this series had a great run though it was cut way too short. While I think the viewer gets many of the ideas wrapped up, there was a wide base for the show to continue. It is still worth the watch and you won't walk away feeling dumped. Sadly this show was cut short before its time due to demographic reasons, but maybe there is a smart exec that will pick it up and let it run.

I am tired of being frustrated by the networks... always, when a show has grit, intelligent and not sophomoric seems to be cancelled. I am shocked that A&E is following the same line as our generic networks... come on. Some of us would actually enjoy being challenged. And there is a lot to be said about simplicity. So disappointed to see this show cancelled!

I never expected to like a cowboy cop show, but this WY-based Sheriff Longmire has all the best of a gallant, never outspoken cowboy with his trusted friend Henry to provide wisdom, perspective and a bit of "good medicine" as they fight crime and straddle the border between a cowboy town and the res, strengthening the Native American angle in this show. The explorations of character are what make this show so enticing, because there is something about almost every episode that makes the viewer feel like they are stopping in at the Red Pony for a bit of the upbeat cheer with which Henry answers the phone. Even on the worst, hardest days (and days and times are hard out west) connection with a true friend one can trust in any situation, even the most extreme, might just be found at the Red Pony. Of course, outside all of this are the gorgeous landscape panoramas, the sense of being away from urban American and on the cusp of locating another version of that down home American ideal of an alternative "family", made up of misfit friends and coworkers which, as we see with Brandt and Longmire, don't need to thank each other for saving their lives--that is par for the course--but rather, give thanks instead for saving a hat. Nice little moments of humor thus also dot the landscape of this show and make it an enjoyable watch.

I heard about this show a couple of years ago but never had the time to watch it. WOW! I've just finished the pilot and sorry i didn't watch it sooner. I'm looking forward to catching up with four seasons over the next several months.

Longmire was an instant hit with us! I can NOT wait until the return...so many questions need answering! Such a well done series. From the acting to the cinematography, is FANTASTIC! This series, Hell on Wheels, Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey, and Mr. Selfridge, are at the top of my "Epic List" :-)

It's about a cowboy who lives on the edge of the Earth bordering an Indian Reservation. What I like about this show is that you don't need to watch EVERY.SINGLE.EPISODE to get the gist. Most storylines are wrapped up within the timeslot. The characters are engaging, and though some story lines seem to be beaten like a dead horse....overall, I look forward to each episode.

I' am EXTREMELY happy that Netflix saved Longmire. I thoroughly enjoy the show. Thanks NF! I enjoy a show where men are portrayed as men for a change.
