Maybe it's me, but when I discovered the Longmire series, back I guess, halfway through season one, I was intrigued. I was already a fan of the Jesse Stone series, but I'm a big fan of Selleck so there's that. What I enjoyed most in the Stone series was the interaction among the charactors more than the plots - the deadpan humor especially. The only one I didn't like was a recent episode where Jesse was bent on inflicting psychological punishment on the high school pricipal for demanding to look at the underwear of girls attending the prom. She wasn't charged, but that had more to do with politics than anything else. The whole episode was kind of disgusting. She should have been fired. Longmire reminds me of that series. Same mix of drama and humor, but there did seem to be a lot more humor during the 1st season. People teased each other and cracked wise - now not so much. The 3rd season, at least so far, seems pretty grim. I think the story lines are getting too complicated for the area. I mean this is Wyoming, not Miami. Everyone is going around with clenched jaws, especially Branch. I find it kind of tiresome - no comic relief. I guess I'll watch it a couple of times more and if it doesn't move back toward the writing of the 1st season, I'll just vote with my remote. I hate to see a show I previously enjoyed go South. And speaking of South, whatever happened to Southland? What a shame that's gone and Prime Suspect with Maria bello, gone as well. There's not nearly enough good stuff out there that I can afford to lose even one. If its not vampires, its zombies, etc., etc. Thank God for Hell on Wheels which starts 1st week in August. And I'm not sure Shameless will be back next season. It looked like they had conveniently solved everyone's particular problem with the finale, amazing or impossible as that might seem. I guess I'll just have to dust off the complete set of Homicde: Life on the Street yet again.
