    I am surprised that someone hasn't started a thread on this show. I love westerns, including modern westerns. The show was introductory so we saw a lot of Longmire feeling sorry for himself but by the end he was more enthusiastic about running against his more modern but less experienced deputy.

    The characters are good, especially the bartender at the Red Pony. I think I am going to learn a lot about relations between the larger community and the people who live in the reservation.

    I liked the Pilot but I hope the next episodes are better.

    Thought it was OK. As I said in the other thread, it was very predictable. Hope future episodes are more creative.

    Good to see Lou Diamond Phillips again. :)

    I enjoyed this. I hope Longmire kicks his deputy's butt in the election.

    Nice to see Katee Sackhoff get some more series work. She was ready to go all Starbuck on those tribal cops. Whee!

    I kept thinking that was Grant Show as the deputy, but it's Bailey Chase. I had to go look him up in IMDB before I remembered where I saw him last -- in Saving Grace on TNT.

    I saw the pilot episode. I know a CA deputy sheriff who works in an area with Indian reservations and their relationship is nothing like the ones between the reservation cops and the deputy sheriffs. In fact, he often takes his meal break at their casino (not to gamble, but at their restaurant). Some reservation police departments have <gasp> WHITE police officers too.

    I don't know about the laws for WY, but I know that just because the reservation is there does not mean the local and state cops don't have jurisdiction, at least as far as the highways are concerned. I know that WA state route 20 which runs through an Indian reservation on its way to Anacortes and Whidbey Island is heavily patrolled by the Washington State Police. There are many similar examples in CA and I know the CHP still patrols those routes.

    Despite this, I still liked the pilot. I've got a season pass set up.

    State Police and State Highway Patrols have different jurisdictions than say County Sheriffs Officers or City Police, but you likely know that. What you may not know is tribal laws on the reservations can be very different than our laws. It's not like just another jurisdiction, it's a "Nation" in and of itself.

    I am aware that tribal laws are often different from the laws outside the reservation. I am also aware that Tribal Police do NOT have jurisdiction over non-Indians, even within the reservation (Oliphant v. Suquamish Indian Tribe, 1978). A non-Indian committing a crime within the reservation has to be turned over to the Federal government, or in some states (CA being one of them) to the local police/sheriff or state police.

    Tribal Sovereignty is not as clear cut as that of say our neighbors Mexico and Canada. The courts have gone back and forth on it. About a decade or so ago, this became an issue in CA when many tribes wanted to institute gambling on their lands. It ultimately went before a voter referendum.

    I was a little bored, hope it improves. That entire scene when Longmire takes the Sharp and proves it won't fire is a bit crazy. Even if you are 110% (thanks Lou Ferrigno) sure that the rifle won't fire you still don't insert a live round and pull the trigger while in the police station.

    I liked it. Sort of a Justified Lite. I did keep thinking Starbuck when Katee Sackhoff was onscreen.

    I enjoyed the first episode. I will stick with it. I am sure it will get better now that the setup is out of the way.

    I enjoyed it. Seemed a little dry in some places but it's a pilot so I expect it to find its legs soon.

    I watched a reality series titled "Navaho Cops" and there was a white cop who had become more or less part of the tribe. He had been married to a Navaho woman and even though divorced he was welcome. He knew the culture and the language. The relations between the cops and white people whether just tourists or other cops seemed to be very professional.

    It was said that Starbuck's character had only been there 6 months. No real backstory on why she left Philadelphia but I thought it a little weird she was so loyal to the sheriff. Like when he was punched she jumped on the native american.

    When he told her that Grant (I think that was his name) was running for sheriff she said she wanted to be there when he was confronted.

    I was expecting her to be his daughter that moved home after the wife/mother died. But it doesn't look like that's the case.

    Early in the show Longmire asked a deputy to get a list of registered rifles in the area. Do they really require long guns to be registered in Wyoming?

    Likely, I live 2 states below Wyoming (NM) the Brady Bill (and other legislation) changed things considerably for all firearms purchases, I bought a rifle last month and had to register... but that is only for sales from dealers, not private individuals so chances of one actually showing up in a "list", not that great imho.
