    Love this show ALOT! Been waiting and waiting to hear when second season starts.
    Love all the characters in it. PLEASE keep it on.

    This is one of the best new shows on TV. The characters are interesting and realistic and the stories are as good as TV gets. Why do networks always play to the LOWEST common denominator and leave those of us who enjoy gritty drama (instead of the stupid nonsense that dominates most network programming) out in the cold. Hundreds of cable channels to choose from and I spend most evenings reading a book! I hope we get it back on.

    Things is OUR most favorite show in a looooong time….down to earth and believeable.
    The characters were very real and extremely likeable. PLEASE bring it back…….

      Meant to say….THIS is our favorite show not things….oh, well…..if we could not watch it at its scheduled time…it was always recorded and watched later…..Truly miss Longmire……

    This is one of the very best shows ever. I love it as much as NCIS. No sissies on Longmire–maybe that’s why. Please bring it back for those of us who like shows that have heart and depth. Please.

    I think young guys could use a cowboy hero. Young men these days seem to be so weak, feminine, and lost, that it scares me when I think of the future. There is no more draft, so most men nowadays have not been in the military. A good cowboy hero like Longmire will be a good for America.

    I loved this show and was looking forward to the new season. Bring it back. If stations can put crappy shows like Honey Boo Boo and reruns of Roseann, they can put a great show like Longmire back on.
