Tonight’s Episode Of Longmire Was Great! Tonight’s Episode Was Able To Mix Drama, Suspense, Mystery, And Humor Together, Which Was Fantastic. Tonight’s Episode Even Had Some Sad/Emotional Sections In It. Longmire Mixes Every Tv Show Genre Into One. I’ve Liked The Series From The Pilot Episode, And As Each New Episode Arrises, I’m Becoming A Bigger Fan. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend This Show. Watch Longmire Live: Sunday’s At 10/9C. On A&E.
