    I am still angry that the glades was cancelled. Now ur trying to cancel Longmire. What is wrong with h people. The only really good shows that have been on v in years and u want to cancel them. What are u thinking. Do u not like having anot one but two hit shows. Get real u dim wits. Put these two shoes back on tv.

    I do not read books, but watch a lot of series on TV. Love Longmire. The Glades was good for a while but that romance between him and the doctor just didn’t fit in. A&E puts out some very good series. Keep up the good work!

    love the Longmire series, have read all of the books…Really liked the first couple of seasns of The Glades but something happened to the last one, just didnt seem like the original feeling in the writing or cast interaction. it was like they were just walking through reading their lines off of posterboard.

    ADMIN. I owe you an apology. Seems the article the poster was referring to was an old one but just published. i found it by a quote from the article. matt gives an early description of the show and i believe the back foot comment was about Callie. My apologies. i really find your message board and 1 other to be the best. THX

    It didn’t seem to be about the show’s future. As I wrote it was vague and seemed to be some personal comments. No real details, so perhaps i shouldn’t take it too seriously. THX for taking time to answer.

    Question for ADMIN. This am , on another message board, fans were discussing an interview given by Matt Passmore. Some quoted him a few times. They were vague and somewhat mysterious. No info on how to find it. Anyone know. THX

        Sorry seems I posted in the wrong area, It was described as a lengthy article. Not wanting to quote out of context. One statement he made was he met someone who knocks him on his back foot. if this is personal who cares. If its about the show i am interested.
