Tonight’s Episode Of Longmire Was Great! The Show Continues To Entertain Me With It’s Western Spice, And Intriguing Cases. The Show Continues To Hint At A Mysterious Backstory For Walt Longmire. The Backstory Is Very Vague, But I Expect It To Be Revealed In Further Episodes. I’ve Been A Fan OF The Show Since The Pilot, And I Continue To Enjoy Each Episode. Overall, I Would Absolutely Recommend Longmire. Watch Longmire Live: Sunday’s At 10/9C. On A&E.
