Longmire is one of the best series broadcast on television today and something of a sleeper. I get the feeling that it is overshadowed by such vastly-popular shows like Big Bang Theory or Sherlock. Still, it obviously has it's share of fans because the third season began only days ago.
The show is based from a series of books known collectively as The Walt Longmire Mysteries by author Craig Johnson and, while I have yet to read them, the TV series is so good that I desperately wish to. The cast, which includes Robert Taylor, Lou Diamond Phillips and Katee Sackhoff, is stellar.
A cross between a western and a police procedural that is nothing like either; Longmire, set in Wyoming, isn't afraid to be different and succeeds in going against the grain. It's a pleasure to watch, completely engrossing and leaves me greatly anticipating each new episode.
