Season 2 premiers Monday on A&E. One of the best series on TV, I was glad they ordered more than 10 shows for season 2.  Based on a series of mystery novels... the cast and the acting is very good.

 A recent interview with the author of the books:

I, like you Rapunzel, am a big fan of this show. Taylor is outstanding as Longmire and this is the best work Lou Diamond Phillips has done in years, maybe ever.

I do wonder, though, why they film it in NM instead of WY itself. Not that I have anything against NM, it just strikes me as somewhat odd.

Any of you who haven't seen this series, give it a shot. It's really is good and the character Longmire will remind you of the kind of person Gary Cooper played in many a movie, manly, heroic, but not without flaw.

I came back to this to ask a question: Rapunzel have you ever watched "Southland" on TNT but in very limited episodes (about 10 or less per season)? That is another show I think very highly of and wondered what, if anything, you thought.

Back again: how amusing. I was just reading up on this show on Wikipedia and discovered, On May 10, 2013, TNT announced that Southland had been cancelled. Lol.

No, I watched it on CBS before they cancelled it....I did know TNT picked it up, but just so much time to get involved in different series.  It was a good series, though.  Actually my husband was who started watching it first because one of the main actors had been in The OC when it was on and we liked him in that program.

I started watching Longmier last year because the subject matter interested me, anything set in the west with real men attracts me ~LOL~ (I love John Wayne types)... and I was pleased to find the writing as well as the acting is superb.  I did notice the scenery seemed more New Mexico./Southern Coloradoish..... probably because they film in the winter to show in the summer and Wyoming would be too cold - plus there is so much filming these days in NM probably have more equipment available and not have to be transported up to Wyoming.  Vegas - for instance - was filmed in NM.

Cinc.. did you watch this last night?  Curious what you think the previews were showing us for next week - which I think will be the season finale???

Negative. I have this feature with my cable service called "On Demand" which provides me with rebroadcasts of a number of shows from a large variety of different networks, including the Big 3 and several of the cable networks. I usually catch up with "Longmire" a day or two after its original showing because I tend to watch most TV late in the evening (I am a night owl). As soon as the latest Longmire is available I shall address the matter of the preview, assuming I get it. Sometimes "On Demand" provides only the show itself.

Looked like he's doing a version of the Sun Dance - a purification ceremony.

Lot of discussion about last nights episode on FB.  I watched it twice last night and picked up on a few things the second time through I missed the first go-round.... next week should be very interesting as speculation is Cady was already in the grass when her car was hit and the guy hitting it and calling 911 saved her life.... remember he said he didn't see her until he saw her in the grass.  Whoever slashed her tire could have been the real person to injure her.    Probably the guy running Branch's election campaign???

Just an update Rapunzel. The episode of Longmire I missed has yet to be added to "On Demand", a matter of some disappointment to me, so I have no comment as yet, or maybe ever, on your question. I did watch last night's episode, however, and at the risk of being ostracized, must admit I found the ending, the Purification Ceremony, more than a bit hokey.

That's my opinion and I am sticking to it.

Okay, but what about what happened to Cady?  I think the bartender at the party stuck her tire... I do think it is also probably she was attacked when she got out to change her tire and wasn't hit by the car that did end up hitting her car....

Honestly that is an angle which completely escaped me, but now that you mention it it makes sense.

I'm thinking you hang around a much more cynical crowd than I do.  :silly:

I tend to agree, especially when they showed someone watching her when she was dropping off the Indian voters.

and when I watched the encore showing I was looking closer at more details and noticed the evil/angry look on that bartenders face at the party and then they showed a close-up of the ice-pick in the block of ice.  He looks like the type the guy who was running Branch's campaign would hire to do the dirty deed....   so I wonder will Cady wake up next week and clue us in or will Branch redeem himself and solve it?  He's definitely putting pieces together.

BTW the heavy-set cop having a crush on Cady was a shock (to me)

Darned if I didn't notice that when I watched it but failed to make the connection until you posted what you did about the possibility of an earlier attack on Cady.

As to this, the heavy-set cop having a crush on Cady, I thought that was kinda cute (oh, hell, I'm secure in my masculinity) and did you notice how well he could dance?

Rapunzel, at long last I got to see the episode I missed. It was entitled "Tuscan Red". That was all that was shown but as to your original question, Curious what you think the previews were showing us for next week - which I think will be the season finale???, that, obviously , has been answered as the episode from this Monday we now know is a two parter. After that, who knows?

No, sadly, did not. Was out most of the evening for an RLC meeting. Hopefully it will be "On Demand" soon (or I may go into withdrawal).

Taylor is appealing, I think, because first and foremost he is a man who behaves like one.

I do mean the black cop.  To me it was just a bit over the top.

Everyone else does a bang up job of acting.
