    longmire is a great show. it has interesting story lines that can keep you on the edge of your seat trying to figure things out. the actors are convincing in their roles. its a good mixture of old west and modern times. i look forward to each and every show and feel bad when the short season is over. the show can spread in so many directions it could go on for years and still stay fresh. its a great show with great actors in a great location with great storys. its certainly a wonderful change from some of the crap thats on tv these days. please keep it going. hp gregory

    Love the show please don’t cancel. has a great storyline and is one of the best if not the best shows during the summer.

    Best show in a long time. We need a good western without all the blood and gore, sex, and deviousness. There is just enough of each to make for a good story. RENEW IT!!!!

    I completely agree with all the recommendation to renew this unique program. It has excellent actors, beautiful scenery, good plot lines and keeps your interest. I look forward to each new episode. I do think that it has been under advertsed and that more viewers would become addicted to it if there was more publicity given to it. I stumbled across it by accident one night! Good, solid programs like this are few and far in between. RENEW the series!! Please!!!

    Why is that they get a good show and try to end it? Its interesting and develops nicely. I have seen this strange behaviour for many seasons on many shows. Then they replace a unique show with a remake of a rather stupid show. Longmire is unique and has much room for expansion to dump it in now would be rediculous. Do NOT cancel it. If you have bring it back or sell it to a venue that appreciates unique shows.

    Season 3 has been great so far. This is the only show I never miss. Well acted and different than anything else that is on. Ratings do not reflect how well this show is liked. I know a lot of people that watch it on demand, record it via DVR, and watch online. Most people watch the episodes more than once. I hope A&E is smart enough to renew for season 4 and order more episodes than 10. This is the only quality show A&E has in it’s lineup.

    I Love the show! The hour each week goes by too fast. Look forward to each episode . Robert Taylor does a great job of playing Walt Longmire – so much like the book, in my opinion! Love LDP as Standing Bear as well. Please renew the show for the fourth season, and add more episodes . ( I’ve promoted the show to friends who have started watching it.)
