[Jan 2016] What I'm Watching

Summary: "Based on the Walt Longmire mystery novels by best-selling author Craig Johnson, this contemporary crime drama stars Australian actor Robert Taylor in the title role, the charismatic and dedicated sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyo. Longmire patrols the county with a brave face and sense of humor, but deep inside he hides the pain of his wife's recent death. With the urging of his daughter, Cady, and the help of Vic, a new female deputy, Longmire gains a new appreciation of his job and decides to run for re-election. He's committed to putting his life back together, one piece at a time, and he often calls on best friend and confidant Henry Standing Bear for support." -- From Wikipedia

Will you like it?
Anyone who loves cop dramas will love this show.  There is a Cheyenne reservation located in the middle of Absaroka County, and so the majority of the cases explore the relationships between the sheriff's department and the tribal police.  This dynamic creates new cases; cases that make me feel as if I haven't seen them a million times before.

News about the show:

  • Netflix picked up this show after A&E dropped it after season three.  Season five will be available for streaming in September 2016.  Season five has been confirmed as the show's last.

Overall, if you like cop dramas I would enthusiastically recommend this.  This show is different than the same old shows you see on TV.
