    I love this show. I didn’t see it when it first started, but I got caught up on all the shows and was looking forward to the new season. Bring it back on please !!!!!!!

    I have enjoyed watching Longmier, however it it unrealsistic. Being Native American, I cannot imagine a law enforcement officer going on tribal land and talking down to the natives the way Longmier does. He comes off intimidating the tribal law enforcement as well a tribal people. This does not happen in our area and probably not anywhere else. Respect is mutual.

    We looked forward to each and every episode. We are very pleased it renewed for a second season. Great acting and subjects.

    Extraordinarily refreshing break from all the big city CSI and standard fair police shows. Great ensemble cast. Keep it on the air!
