Favorite Episode Quote(s):

1) “It’s Illegal, Remember?”    – Longmire



Tonight’s Episode Was Great! Tonight’s Episode Focused On An Individual Case, Much Like Law And Order Does. The Show Has Been Able To Keep Me Interested Since The Pilot Episode. I Love How The Show Focuses On Individual Cases, While Also Focusing On Longmire’s Progression/Experiences. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Longmire. Watch Longmire Live: Sunday’s At 10/9C. On A&E.
