TV show description:      
Set in Big Sky country, this thriller TV show is based on the Walt Longmire Mystery novels by best-selling author Craig Johnson.

Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) is the charismatic, dedicated and unflappable sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming. Recently widowed, Longmire is a man in psychic repair that buries his pain behind a brave face and dry wit. He’s known for his manners, strength, and old fashioned approach. His dedication to the law and his passion for the great West make him a desirable lawman.

Victoria ‘Vic’ Moretti (Katee Sackhoff) is the newest addition to the sheriff’s office. Leaving the homicide division in Philadelphia after five years, Vic is still adjusting to dealing with the locals in her new town. Her playful relationship with Longmire holds a deeper connection that allows her to be his most trusted deputy. Vic is out to prove she isn’t a rookie and to show she is capable and loyal.

Henry Standing Bear (Lou Diamond Phillips) is Walt’s lifelong best friend and a local bar owner. Henry is a handsome and charming Cheyenne who is fiercely protective of his tribe and serves as Walt’s go-between with the reservation. Being a business owner, he is comfortable with progress and modernity while maintaining a connection with his past, unlike his close friend.

Deputy Branch Connally (Bailey Chase) is a go-getter with blind confidence. He has political aspirations that often motivate him more than solving cases. His resentment toward Walt’s outdated approach further inspire him to run for sheriff, especially after feeling that he is picking up his boss’s slack. He wants to bring Absaroka County into the 21st century, and he longs to update the sheriff’s station with the technology that other law enforcement agencies use.

Another deputy, The Ferg (Adam Bartley), is a big guy with the heart of a puppy dog. He is loyal, sweet, well-meaning and eager to please. A gifted fly-fisherman who knows how to hunt and fix things, The Ferg has a long way to go as an investigator. Even though he may not be a perfect fit for the job, he is no coward.

Cady Longmire (Cassidy Freeman) is Walt’s only child and an attorney with dreams of the big city. After the death of her mother, Cady has taken it upon herself to help her father get his life back together. She is keenly aware of his imperfections and is the only one not afraid to point them out. Her straight talk and sense of humor connect this father-daughter duo even though they both tend to drive the other crazy.

    SO glad Longmire is back! Love this show, think it’s one the best on tv. Never miss an episode. I hope this show gets a long run, the characters are unique & there’s room for further development for all of them. One of my favorite episodes last year was “Dog Soldier”. This year w/ Vic’s past coming back to haunt her looks promising.
    Message to the network suits: PLEASE don’t cancel Longmire!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the show! My husband and I look forward to this show every week when it is on. Could use more Lou Diamond Phillips, they are a great best buds team!
    Keep em coming!

    Great show! Beautiful scenery! Punch the deputy trying to take Longmire’s job, because he’s getting into bed with bad guys! Longmire needs to win the election. Like the female deputy, really enjoy Lou Diamond Phillips. He needs to be in more episodes! This show is a keeper! Thanks for putting it on the air.

    Good show. Good support actors, beautiful scenery. The lead character played by Robert Taylor appears to be a little weak. His acting ability appears to be limited. The realism needs a little work too. No computers or laptops on any of the Sheriff’s desk or staff. I know this nit picking, but anyone who carries a single action 1911 pistol in a holster, carries it with a round in the chamber, hammer cocked, and thumb safety engaged. Walt Longmire in the show carries with apparently a round and in the chamber and hammer down and not cocked. This is an unsafe method. Like I said nit picky but true. I wish there was a little more action, and more involvement of Katee Saackoff’s character, and who is too good an actress to be just window dressing in the background. Good, but could be better.

    We like the show but there is no need to use the lords name in vein. It adds nothing to the stories. We stop watching shows that have no class.
    We will be watching a few more show’s and will stop watching if you can’t change.

    Thanks Sue

    Love Longmire but I’m a little disturbed at weird plot points as in “Carcasses”, a woman running a composting business using roadkill carcasses – completely unrealistic since compost is made with vegetation, not animal matter. In the first episode this season, Longmire falls down a hillside, gets hurt, falls into a mountain stream (snow all around), gets soaked through and stumbles freezing into a deserted cabin – at some interminable time later, he manages to light the wood stove to get warmer, and presto, he’s back out on the mountain chasing the bad guy. Sure he’s a tough Westerner, but I thought it was unrealistic.

    This show is a great change from all the other cop shows. It has a taste of country which I prefer in real life. I’m Burned out with these big city cop shows. Would enjoy seeing more story’s involving the reservation.

    Great Show! I check every week to see if it coming back. Good characters and story line. Please hurry and bring it back.

    Ok…So is this show a “goner”?…I hope not…have you watched Dallas?…good grief there’s more character development in one episode of Longmire than all the years of Dallas past and present…& Dallas (As the World Turns in 1000 boats) is still running… and running… and running…like a drippy nose in hay fever season….Just send me the time and day and when it starts in 2013…”come on man”…don’t blow us off…and leave us with another knock off of NCIS Whoseville…If you show it they’ll come…or maybe Obama will give you a handout..he likes gun shows.

  11. Dan Crowder says

    Please do not throw this show out Its Good , better than all so called Reality shows If given a chance, it will last as long as NCIS Or Gunsmoke which it has elements of both And Could Spawn several spin offs If the Hog & Swamp Jockeys can keep there Hands off.
