Critic Reviews for Longmire Season 1

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (16)

It's about the best combination of substance and style. And when it comes to entertainment, you can't get much cooler than that.

A good plot or interesting characters can be enough for a drama series. Unfortunately, Longmire lacks both.

Top Critic

Longmire is an entirely respectable alternative for anyone who'd rather not spend Monday morning rehashing the latest outrage on Mad Men.

Jun 3, 2012 | Full Review…

Unassuming Longmire doesn't shout LOVE ME! but instead works its charms subtly, quietly. There's promise here.

Top Critic

Longmire makes a solid overall first impression without rising to the level of critical huzzahs.

Top Critic

It's nicely crafted, as well, with a slower pace than the average police procedural, but more than enough character intrigue to compensate.

Jun 3, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

What makes Sheriff Longmire so much fun to watch is that he uses his book smarts and cowboy training instead of the latest tech to help him solve crimes.

May 30, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Jan 23, 2018 | Full Review…

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

Jan 24, 2018 | Full Review…

... 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.

Audience Reviews for Longmire: Season 1

  • Jan 25, 2020
    From A&E comes the modern western Longmire. Season 1 follow a Wyoming sheriff named Walt Longmire as he faces re-election running against one of his own deputies and attempts to keep the peace with the neighboring Cheyenne reservation. Starring Robert Taylor, Katee Sackhoff, and Lou Diamond Phillips the show has a solid cast that gives good performances. And there are several interesting guest stars featured, including Peter Weller, John Pyper-Ferguson, and Charles S. Dutton. Additionally, the writers do a good job at developing the characters and at putting a western spin on the crimes. Bold and provocative, Longmire delivers an incredibly strong first season.

    We absolutely love this series and are hooked! Sheriff / Western series with realistic tie-in of Indian reservation (life, people, story lines) ... so much appeals to us!
