    I didn’t look through all the posts to see if anyone has mentioned it yet, but as someone else that is just so upset with A&E and how they cancel things after a cliffhanger (The Glades, Longmire and countless others over the years) I thought everyone would like to hear that they said that the new season of Longmire will start on Netflix in November!!!!! Yes, they were able to pick the show up on Netflix and seeing how many people were so mad , like me, I am sure everyone will eventually cancel their cable and start watching everything on NetFlix lol! All of the cable channels want loyal viewers but, for them, it is a one way street…no loyalty in return. I would much rather pay 7 bucks a month for Netflix and 6 bucks for Hulu than paying the stupid amount for cable who has lost concern about the viewers and only care about getting the next show up in running. The way the do it is the worst! I am pretty sure they know what will get the ax and what will stay long before we are ever told however, they keep it to themselves until it is a done deal and allow the show to exit while in the middle of a story. I would hate to think about how things would have gone if some of the really popular shows were canceled in the middle of a run…Breaking Bad had a horrible reception at first and ended up being called one of the best dramas on TV EVER! Could you have seen them canceling the show before Walter’s story was over? Maybe ending before season 4 started? Yeah, me either. A&E and Lifetime are the worst about this, they will cancel anything!!!!
