Longmire, is another Columbo/ Sherlock Holmes! He always gets his man/woman. Netflix, has a hit here. To bad they are giving it the ax after 6 seasons. Contact Netflix, and give Your opinion on their cancellation. But sadly, it happens to all great epics!If You haven't seen this series, do yourself a favor, and give it a view. You won't be disappointed! My only beef is they only around12 episodes per season.

{{{{If You buy this series, buy it from Amazon.
Stay away from eBay, Pirated DVD's of this show, is everywhere on there. I got stuck with one of their sellers bootlegged season! the picture quality is terrible! An You can't look at it's casing an tell it's a bootleg. The disks are 4gb, The True DVD's are 7 to 8gb. As I said, if you are smart, never buy a DVD series from eBay, or any other DVD for that matter.Always buy them from Amazon.}}}} Regards!

The absolute best western crime drama ever!
Verified purchase
Watch this one! You will get hooked! Walt Longmire, played with perfection by rugged Australian Robert Taylor, is an honorable, somewhat spiritual man, filling the difficult job of policing a large, rural county. He is a lonely soul, shattered by the death of his wife, holding together mainly for the sake of his daughter (Cassidy Freeman) and out of a sense of responsibility. He gets through it all by re-reading the classics, drinking beer, and clashing with his loud-mouthed, hot-tempered, female Deputy (Katee Sackoff), his up-and-coming Deputy and competitor (Bailey Chase), and untried young Ferg (Adam Bartley). Ruby (Louanne Stephens) is the mother figure, running the office, and trying to keep everyone organized. Walt cares deeply about all of the members of his team, but would never admit it. Longmire is not a shoot-first type of cop, and is quite likely to use his fists in the process of keeping order in Absaroka County. His best friend, Northern Cheyenne tribal member, Henry Standing Bear, (Lou Diamond Phillips), helps to keep Walt centered, and acts as liaison with the Cheyenne culture encompassed by Walt's county. Zahn McClarnon plays the Cheyenne police chief, often in conflict with Walt, and A. Martinez, Gerald McRaney and Graham Greene are the very fascinating and complex bad guys. Many fine Native American and Latino actors guest star.The story lines deal with realistic problems in thoughtful ways, and the writing is outstanding. The directing, cinematography and score are terrific. Beautiful New Mexico mountains and prairie substitute for rural Wyoming, the setting of Craig Johnson's very popular books, upon which the series is based.

I bought the series cuz I am a fan of Lou Diamond Phillips. I don't usually watch western type movies. But this isn't a western. It's filmed in New Mexico you'll see incredibly beautiful scenery. It's a story about a small town sheriff in wyoming who without resources big city police depts has solves crimes. Living with the pain of his wife's murder his deputy is using that he's seems to not be giving the job everything he has & he's running to replace him while also dating his daughter. Lou Diamond Phillips is a tavern owner & is the sheriff's friend. He acts as a go between with the sheriff and the reservation & even helps when where he can. I have really enjoyed watching this series

Intriguing, Compelling, Entertaining & Believable Storyline,With In-depth Characters Development and Exceptional Cinematography!

Recently my cyber-friend, NyiNya a top amazon.com reviewer, introduced me to Walter Longmire, an A&E television series in its 3rd season based on author, Craig Johnson's mystery novel series that begins with "The Cold Dish."

After reading "The Cold Dish," I decided to purchase the first season DVD. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the series and book have many of the same characters, but the stories are significantly different. Nevertheless, I enjoyed both the first novel and the complete first season of Longmire.

Robert Taylor, stars as Absaroka County, Wyoming even keeled, former Marine Corps Vietnam veteran, common sensed and laid-back Sheriff Walt Longmire noted for his stubborn disposition with reliable instincts in this 2 disc, ten episode season while Cassidy Freeman portrays his attorney daughter, Cady who is concerned about his mental well-being following the death of her mother, Martha a year earlier.

Lou Diamond Phillips plays Henry Standing Bear, Walt's oldest and most influential friend and connection to the local Northern Cheyenne Reservation, as well as the uncle of Melissa Little Bird, a victim of fetal alcohol syndrome who was raped by four local white affluent high school students who received minimal punishment for their crime. One of which was discovered murdered by an unknown assailant with a bullet from a rare Sharps .45-70 buffalo rifle.

Katee Sackhoff plays Walt's choice as his heir apparent replacement; the foul-mouthed yet experienced transplanted South Philadelphia cop from a family of cops, Victoria "Vic" Moretti as a result of her husband, Glen, a field engineer working for Consolidated Coal who was transferred to work at a mine about halfway between Durrant, Wyoming and the Montana county line.

Adam Bartley plays the long part-time deputy, Jim Ferguson, "The Ferg," and head of Search and Rescue.

Bailey Chase plays the handsome, backstabbing wannabe Sherriff, Deputy Branch Connally, nephew of the still sharp former Sherriff who made sure Walt was his replacement, now residing in a nursing home, Lucian Connally.

This addictive modern day "Big Sky" Western will keep the viewer glued to the tube for 443 minutes of stunning views, intriguing relationships and spellbinding storylines.

The intriguing, compelling, entertaining and believable storyline, in-depth characters development and exceptional cinematography make this a series that addicted my wife and me to the point that we wanted to view one after the other non-stop from beginning to end.

Enjoy!

...peacekeeping in the wide, open spaces...

In today's frazzled, frenzied world Sheriff Walt Longmire slows his roll. He takes his time. His bailiwick lies under the open skies of Absaroka, Wyoming. Adapting author Craig Johnson's Western mystery novels, LONGMIRE charts a more leisurely course, far removed from the hi-tech hustle and bustle of them CSI shows. It celebrates the stillness of a man, the grace of listening and of paying attention. Walt Longmire is very much a product of his environs, patient and a man of few words and keenly observant. But he's had a year's worth of awful, his wife dyin', his subsequent fall from grace, his descent into dark depression. At last he pulls himself up, begins again to take an interest in keeping the peace and mending fences with his attorney daughter Katie (Cassidy Freeman). And it's good timing. Murder and other sorts of unkindness have breached Absaroka.

I was appalled when AMC started halfassing it as a classic film network, and now here's A&E subverting its original mission statement. I had no idea that A&E programming had branched out from producing biographies and prestigious British dramas. But while I condemn the network for selling out and dipping into the realm of reality shows, it keeps a sliver of its soul by broadcasting LONGMIRE, this compelling contemporary western detective series.

I won't lie. Katee Sackhoff brung me here. But it's Robert Taylor's impeccable, world-weary performance that keeps me coming back. Robert Taylor looks like John Schneider's tougher, more careworn brother. His role calls for a laconic approach but also a certain soulfulness. Longmire is a broken, devastated person, still reeling from his wife's passing. This sense of loss colors everything he does. Longmire embodies that aphorism, "Still waters run deep." When you least expect it, he'll break down a Latin phrase for you.

The cases the sheriff's office investigates aren't the big draw, although there's fun in watching Longmire and his staff work under the constraints of limited, outdated resources (Longmire himself doesn't own a cell phone). But it's all about the examination of character and the interplay among the cast. The complex relationships keep it interesting. Before Longmire's rededication to his craft, when he was wallowing in grief, his slick, ambitious deputy, Branch Connally (Bailey Chase), decided to run against him for reelection. Deputy Connally smirks: "Given the choice between some fresh thinkin' and a tired absentee sheriff drivin' around with empty beer cans all over the floor of his truck, I like my odds." It makes for good water cooler talk, having a smug snake in the grass.

I love Katee Sackhoff's take on whatever role she's playing. She always puts her own distinctive spin on it. You can't take your eyes off her, not only because she's very easy on the eyes, but because she's always doing something interesting when she acts, a look, a mannerism, that big smile. Her Victoria "Vic" Moretti - former Philly homicide detective, now six months in as sheriff's deputy in Absaroka - is a sexy, take-no-crap sort of woman who is endlessly loyal to Longmire. And so what if maybe the dress code doesn't seem to apply to her? In big, open-skied Wyoming, you're surely allowed a few buttons unbuttoned.

YOUNG GUNS 2 and, don't judge me, THE POWER will always be my two favorite Lou Diamond Phillips pictures. But you can't deny that he lends tremendous depth as Henry Standing Bear, Longmire's wise and capable Cheyenne best friend. One of the show's thru arcs revolves around whatever shady skullduggery Longmire and Standing Bear got up to in Denver a year back. Standing Bear's signature flourish is that he talks like he's got a grudge against contractions. Meanwhile, Adam Bartley as "The Ferg" Ferguson, a well-meaning but bumbling sheriff's deputy whom Walt hired to do a solid for Ferg's pops, serves as the Enos Strate of the series. The Ferg provides laughs and earnestness and a big heart. Okay, I realize I'd just gone three paragraphs breaking down the cast, but they mean that much to the show.

Stetsons and jeans and guzzling Rainier beer and navigating a beat-up Ford Bronco, that's how it's done in Absaroka if you've got the big badge. The series opens just as Walt Longmire reckons it's time he gets back in the mix: mend some fences, solve some crimes, maybe take down his ambitious deputy a peg or three. Is Longmire an old relic? Or does he still have game? He's grown odd. He compulsively picks up litter. He keeps his wife's ashes in a tea box in the kitchen. Can he keep the peace, never mind his office's infighting and the surge in murders and that the Cheyenne reservation's territorial tribal police often gets in the way? Set in a rugged, unspoiled landscape, where man and nature commune, is he the lawman to take on murderous Mennonites and mobile brothels and fearsome dog soldiers? And just what the he11 happened in Denver? Mister, you just got to tune in.

LONGMIRE - THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON has its ten episodes on two discs. The bonus stuff consist of two featurettes:

- "The Camera's Eye: Realizing the World of Longmire - Set against the backdrop of the West, the world of the cowboy detective is revealed" (00:18:53 minutes)
- "Longmire Justice: Exploring the Cowboy Detective - We see how the American tradition of the cowboy and the detective genre blend so well together" (00:28:57 minutes)

Good Quality DVD, Arrived Fast! This Series was SO GOOD! Well Acted by Excellent Cast, and well written fast paced with good direction. There is some cussing but within acceptable limits and without the excessive filthy language of some new shows which makes them far less enjoyable and definitely inferior. Wish they would bring this great series back with this SAME Cast! Make some more, we need more shows like LONGMIRE! Robert Taylor, Lou Diamond Phillips, Katie Sackhoff and Peter Weller are Awesome!

Huge fan of the Walt Longmire Mystery Series Books

I LOVE the books and just learned about the TV series so had to buy the Season 1 since it was already done for this year (will DVR next season now that I know) So having read the books and become so familiar with the characters, I was skeptical about the translation onto this medium. After having an idea of Walt and Henry being just a bit older than Robert Taylor and Lou Diamond Phillips, I had to make that adjustment, but then settled in to watch.After making that adjustment, I'm thinking there couldn't have been a better selection for Walt than Robert Taylor. Two episodes in and I'm giving it a two-thumbs up. Film and TV can never be exactly like the books and once we get past that, this is a damn fine series with really interesting characters that aren't so Hollywood as all the plastic pretty perfect people on so many series. This has really good acting and little details that make them the guy down the street at the cafe or in the hardware store. The blending of the Native community with the area seems fairly close - we live near several Native communities and the "Rez" comparisons with some portions of both communities being completely separate and some just living together seem true to life. The scenary inside and out and also familiar small town with great little touches to stay authentic.

Obviously plot writers have to fit everything into episodes but it wouldn't hurt them to string a meatier plot into more than one episode and have smaller neatly tied side plot lines for each episode. There's sure enough material in the Craig Johnson books for that and those are such good mysteries. The story lines are good enough but really it's these really interesting, down to earth characters without too much over the top drama that catch and hold the attention. DON'T JUMP THE SHARK ON THIS - stay true and you will please so many people!

"Longmire" is already well into its second season on A&E, but it's not too late to catch up on Season One, available on DVD. The show follows the compelling adventures of Walt Longmire, the grizzled Sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming. As the series opens, Walt has just come back to full-time work after a lost year mourning the death of his wife. And there is plenty of work to do. In ten well-executed episodes, Longmire will battle killers, drug-runners, sex offenders, revenge-seekers, and corrupt politicians, while walking a difficult law enforcement line between the Feds and the local Cheyenne reservation police.

The show offers plenty of sub-plots. Walt has difficulties with his daughter, a local attorney with a big secret. Walt's contentious deputy Branch Connally is running for Walt's job as sheriff. New deputy Victoria "Vic" Moretti is a tough-minded former Philly homicide detective with a troubled marriage. Junior deputy Ferg Ferguson seems to have no business being a deputy in the first place. Walt and best friend Henry Standing Bear share a secret about the death of Walt's wife, an incident in Denver for which the audience gets an occasional clue and Walt gets a visit from a Denver FBI agent. Walt himself is overdue to get over his wife's death and move on in his personal life.

This is an entertaining series. The producers take full advantage of their western setting. The characters are fully developed, interesting human beings with real problems. The plots are challenging and meant to be solved by old-fashioned detective work. Walt's stubbornly old-fashioned values and ways of doing business are a key element of the stories. Highly recommended.
