  • Longmire And Vic Find The Trailer That Hannah Was Living In. When They Enter The Trailer They Find 3 “Pennsylvania Dutch” Speaking Individuals. Apparently Hannah Was A Mennonite. (Very Similar To Being Amish)

Favorite Episode Quote(s):

1) “A Stripper Makes More In Two Months Than I Do In An Entire Year!”   – Vic

2) “Pay Up, Bitch.”   – Vic

3) “I Can’t Comment On An On-Going Investigation.”    – Walt   (Longmire)

Tonight’s Episode Of Longmire Was Magnificent! The Show Is Vaguely Similar To The Andy Griffith Show. The Show Focuses On A Small Town Wyoming Cop, And The Day To Day Cases That He Handles. Tonight’s Episode Hinted At A Major Secret That Longmire (The Man Character/Sheriff) Is Keeping From His Friends And Family. So Far, The Show Has Caught My Interest,  And I Expect It To Have A Promising Future. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend This Show. Watch Longmire Live: Sunday’s At 10/9C. On A&E.
