Longmire picked up by Netflix for season 4

Posted on Updated on

Awesome news from Variety (yeah like more than a month ago I know!).  Longmire has been picked up by Netflix.  Shame on A&E for dropping their #1 show.  Sorry I haven’t reviewed this series yet.  I’m waiting to watch Season 3 before I get a more thorough 6-pack rating completed.

Q:  Who needs to be worried on A&E about #1 Longmire being cancelled?

A:   Whoever is #2.

So yeah, Longmire has some shortcomings, like some middling writing but the setup for a terrific long-running series is there in spades.  The actor that plays Sheriff Longmire (Robert Taylor) is excellent.  The whining Katee Sackhoff (from Battlestar fame) has promise but needs some heavy character work and to STOP LOOKING LIKE SHE IS ALWAYS GOING TO CRY!

Thanks Netflix for saving another good show!

Cheers!

      Me too! Taylor plays an awesome old-school sheriff.

      No kidding! Netflix is doing a pretty good job with the production value of their shows. They could easily carry Firefly. If only!
