Love the characters, watched the entire series several times, plus 2 of the books (so far). It's the lifestyle that's the main draw for me. The values. They vary from person to person but they work it out, usually. And as in real life, when Longmire sticks to the truth, sticks to his guns, he draws fire. The many, many murders in a tiny town come mostly from the casino, the opposition to the casino mixed with the support for the casino, plus the moneymaking potential of running crime in and around the casino. Drugs, sex, loan sharking, etc. And the Irish mob shows up. All of that. The series is also about faith -- having faith in honest people. After awhile, no matter how far out a character's behavior seems to be, when you understand him or her, you know they are justified. Just wait to see why or come up with your own theories. I was raised on westerns. I don't object to them. :-D

A friend recommended this to me but I was hesitant because I'm not into westerns. After some assurances, I watched it and got hooked. I marathon watched the first 4 season, which were the only ones out. I recognized Lou Diamond Phillips, Bailey Chase and Katee Sackhoff but none of the other actors but they all did pretty well. Teenagers would be fine, but I would not recommend these for younger children. Definitely looking forward to watching the next season.

LONGMIRE was recommended to me by a coworker. I imagined something more Sam Shepardesque and less contrived, but this a formulaic murder mystery series that requires a huge suspension of disbelief (that such a body count could be produced by a rural Wyoming county; that a sheriff's deputy would be allowed on duty with her blouse unbuttoned, etc.). Lou Diamond Phillips is good though. He delivers the wooden Hollywood Indian with gusto, and the stuff that has to do with the reservation (tribal police, tribal politics) is interesting. Too bad LONGMIRE was not more like a WIRE on the rez. All in all the comments below from daysleeper236 are on the mark.

Typical cop formula set in Wyoming. Relies heavily on tropes and cliché dialogue. Unoriginal, safe and conventional to the point of being boring. Did not finish.

Found this series to be pretty boring. Found myself fast forwarding throughout. Didn't hold my interest. I thought the scene with him crying was a phony scene. Not recommended.

Great series, the plots and the dialogue are often a little sketchy, brief and hard to follow if you don't pay attention, but the action and character development as you watch the episodes comes through very well..... the countryside is beautiful and varied, the American counterpart of the Brit mystery series like Foyle's War which showcase the English pastoral scenery ...... I love this series, highly recommend it.

Very good western mystery series. Great characters. Love the strong friendship between Walt and Henry - both honorable, trustworthy men. Getting ready to start season 4 on Netflix. It has been renewed for a 5th season.

Entertaining series with good acting taking place in a small Wyoming town.

Australian actor (!) Robert Taylor is terrific as Walt Longmire; an old school Western lawman of few words, and high morals. Excellent supporting cast, too, including Katee Sackhoff as his feisty fish-out-of-water deputy, and Lou Diamond Phillips as his wise compatriot and lifeline to the "rez". On to Season Two.

Walt: Are you (Barlow) having an affair with Julia Sublette?
Barlow: (sighs) I wouldn’t classify the emotionally detached sex we enjoy as an ”affair.” ... I tried marriage a few times and it didn’t agree with me. Julia is gorgeous and smart; we have fun and then she goes home. Why would I want to mess with that?

(May not be the exact words but close enough)
Vic: Does the cult have a name? October: Why is there so much ignorance in the world? Look at all the poisons you people consume, and the messiah you worship has been gone for 2000 years. Maybe you are the cult!

Walt Longmire: "We got guns and money, all we need is lawyers."

Henry: According to the internet, it takes three months for a marijuana plant to grow to this height.
Walt: According to the internet, the moon landing was faked.
