Longmire: Season 1 (2012)



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

Critic Reviews for Longmire Season 1

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (15)

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.

I'd like to see the mysteries grow more engaging as the series moves along, but "Longmire" at least starts with a good foundation in Walt, his sidekicks, and the wide, open spaces they travel.

The series has plenty of room to grow; I left the pilot wanting to know more about all the characters, but especially about Longmire.

... it's a dwelling kind of show, and one worth checking out.

Jan 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Longmire's characters are recognizably human: sometimes noble, sometimes petty, sometimes just doing the best they can in a bad situation.

Jan 23, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.
