    Longmire is a GREAT show! My family will be glad to know it’s been renewed for a 2 nd season!

    What a great show is this Longmire! It’s kind of a Western that people that don’t like Westerns would like, and for us that love Westerns it’s a great story that takes place out West in present day with a sheriff and all. The personal dynamics interwoven in this drama are awesome, and at times makes me nervous. I hope this is a show that A&E realizes they have an awesome hit and I hope the writers don’t start going off the ranch!

    I love the Longmire books by Craig Johnson. They are centered around both the friendship between Walt and Henry and the influence of the Indian culture on the small community. Vic – who should have been flamboyant and Italian – and Cady – who has a history of individualism and rough edges – are forces that balance the frustrations of the crimes Walt (and Henry) must solve. SOME of this is true in the TV scripts, much is given a brief wave of a hand, and that weakens the show. But the main problem is that the scripts are too simple. The settings are too simple. And there does not need to be complete solutions every single episode. In fact, stronger serial shows have a lingering personality, question, or associated crime at the end of a show, even if the single crime has been solved. Think Suits, think White Collar, think an AM soap opera ever made! The forthcoming election of a new sheriff is not enough to tie one episode to another. We need layers of complexity not only in character and use of the northern scenery and small towns, but also in the PLOTS. When a crowd is 14 people, it screams “Low Budget”. Stop the 3 minute story segments and 5 minutesadvertising segments and give us something to sink into, to become stongly invested in. I’m glad it’s been renewed. Now can we hire Aaron Sorkin?

    Renew, please! I think that if this show can establish itself, and get back to some of the stories that come out of the Johnson novels, themselves, it will be a hit for a number of years.

    This is the best show I have seen the whole summer. Superb acting and well developed scripts and great casting. We have watched it from the very beginning we hope it stays & they order more episodes than just 10.
