Critic Consensus: A deliberately paced police procedural, Longmire sometimes lumbers aimlessly but mostly rewards viewer patience with its charming cast and distinctive locale.

News & Interviews for Longmire: Season 1
A good plot or interesting characters can be enough for a drama series. Unfortunately, Longmire lacks both.
Longmire is an entirely respectable alternative for anyone who'd rather not spend Monday morning rehashing the latest outrage on Mad Men.
Unassuming Longmire doesn't shout LOVE ME! but instead works its charms subtly, quietly. There's promise here.
Longmire makes a solid overall first impression without rising to the level of critical huzzahs.
It's nicely crafted, as well, with a slower pace than the average police procedural, but more than enough character intrigue to compensate.
It's certainly not bad, I'm all for slow-building character studies, but none of the storylines that played out on the premiere, nor any of the arcs teased for future episodes, made me scurry to my remote and set my DVR for Series Recording.
