    I’ve been watching Longmire on A&E. I better check out the books.

  • Angela Anderson

    Loved the Longmire Mysteries Series on TV. What is the matter with these producers and TV moguls. Don’t they know a good thing when they see it. Why the concentration on the young. We want Walt Back. Look at your comments and listen to the people who pay the bills in the household.

      Did you hear that Netflix has picked up Longmire for season 4?

    They would rather keep showing reruns of 48hours over and over and over, Storage (staged) Wars.
