Critic Reviews for Longmire Season 4

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

It sometimes sounds like faint praise to describe a series like you would a reliable car but Longmire is just a sturdy show. It is well-constructed all around -- confidently made, well-acted, and the writing is much smarter than many shows like it.

Sep 8, 2015 | Full Review…

Longmire returned with a gripping, confident season that really - considering the shift to Netflix - changed very little.

Nov 19, 2015 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

This series is just different enough to separate it from all the other "debuts" showing up for your viewing pleasure. It is one of a kind and that is rare in what is being offered these days.

Nov 19, 2015 | Full Review…

Longmire's canny mix of stand-alone procedural and long-form Western soap-opera is a sturdily constructed production. I see no reason why Longmire in its new home cannot retain its loyal following and attract a bunch of new viewers.

Sep 11, 2015 | Full Review…

Katee Sackhoff and Lou Diamond Phillips continue to be the series' MVPs when it comes to giving the storylines some emotional weight.

Sep 11, 2015 | Full Review…

We're always pulled back in by the performance of Mr. Taylor, an Australian actor who absolutely aces the laconic American lawman.

Sep 10, 2015 | Full Review…

Longmire is stronger than ever, a startling and highly dramatic collision of the modern and mythic.

    It is an all-too-familiar scenario that just as you get into a television series, deeming it to be one of your favorites, the network cancels it. The last episode may have been the cliffhanger for the character development just reaching a pivotal moment for what happens next will never be revealed. Occasionally, if the series had a large and a cult following, a made-for-TV movie made may be made, but that was also a rare occurrence. Thankfully, television content is now dictated by a brand-new paradigm. In our youth, there are only three major networks and a handful of local syndicated stations. Then cable television came into our homes introducing niche programming rather than appealing to the greatest number of people in the audience. The network would focus on a specific demographic. It also separated control over content from the auspices of the FCC allowing for more mature themes previously impossible to show. Now the paradigm has shifted again as an increasing amount of content is being distributed through online video streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. The early leader among these new sources for television shows is undoubtedly Netflix. Where is it took cable many years to be recognized by awards such as the Emmys, Netflix did it within the first two years of original programming. They are tracking some of the most talented people encompassing every aspect of the artistic process, directors, writers, cinematographers, and actors. Besides original programming methods have distinguished itself in a very important way, continuing shows abandoned by the networks, especially those considered ‘Brilliant but Canceled.' One show that fits into this category is the modern western detective series, ‘Longmire. Three seasons on A&E the impressive quality of the series attracted a contingent of loyal fans. Many of us were greatly disappointed when A&E abandoned the show by declining to produce the fourth season. Fortunately, Netflix stepped in and took over production. Besides continuing the show will deserving of life lack of commercials in streaming video meant that each episode could b extended from approximately 45 minutes to an hour or more. Sheriff Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) had won reelection challenged by his senior deputy, Branch Connally (Cassidy Freeman). His father, Barlow Connally (Gerald McRaney), a real estate developer, was one of the richest and most politically connected people in the State. After losing the election, there is an attempt on Branch’s life leading him to ignore his responsibilities as a deputy to track down the one responsible. The final revelation at the end of season three resulted in a showdown between Branch and his father, Barlow Connally (Gerald McRaney), an exceptionally wealthy real estate developer with powerful political collection making them one of the most powerful people in the region. At the very end of season three branches murdered by his father leaving fans with a significant cliffhanger. Fortunately, Netflix picks up the story shortly afterward. Barlow, the Machiavellian master that he is, leaves a suicide note on his son’s computer, but Walt remains suspicious and refuses to rule the death as a suicide. The main reason for this is a result of Walt Longmire’s is an incredible skill as an investigator in his meticulous attention to detail. He found a shotgun shell with a tiny amount of dirt within it. The only way this could happen is if the shell had been fired and ejected on the ground, subsequently picked up and placed back into the shotgun. In a way similar to Colombo, many people underestimate just how good Walt is that his job. His suspicions immediately focus on Jacob Nighthorse (A Martinez), a ruthless local businessman and owner of a lavish hotel and casino on Cheyenne land. He has been Walt’s constant nemesis for many years. The theory destroyed when in a state of drunken grief Barlow confesses shocks, Walt. As sheriff, Walt’s jurisdiction excludes the Cheyenne reservation, ‘The Rez’ in the local vernacular. When a young Cheyenne woman, Gabriella (Julia Jones), is raped by a group of field workers employed by an oil company, Walt is obligated to refer the matter to tribal police, Mathias (Zahn McClarnon), Mathias (Zahn McClarnon). His full cooperation is not always forthcoming due to the ever present jurisdictional disputes. Walt is forced to continue the investigation without involving the Rez. Walt’s best friend and closest ally, Henry Standing Bear (Lou Diamond Phillips) are trying to get his life together after being framed for murder. Court cost resulted in the loss of his bar to bar to one of the most deplorable crime bosses in the area, Malachi Strand (Graham Greene), disgraced former chief and current head of security in the casino. Driven by his vindictive and sadistic nature he ‘permits’ a desperate Henry to work at the bar. Like so many crimes involving the Oil Company or casino, the company buries the investigation in bureaucratic red tape ultimately dispatching the company’s foreman, Walker (Callum Keith Rennie), to buy off Gabriella's family. There had been a protector of the Cheyenne ignored by the system and denied justice, Hector. In the persona of an avenging spirit warrior, the ex-boxer was the native vigilante. After being killed many were despondent prompting Henry to assume the role. People in need left pleas at Hector’s shrine, now answered by Hector. The sheriff and his deputies, Vic Moretti (Katee Sackhoff), and Jim "The Ferg" Ferguson (Adam Bartley) investigate with the tension in the story constantly growing as they get closer to identifying one of the most admirable characters as the vigilante. Walt’s daughter, Cady (Cassidy Freeman) is an attorney disgusted with the amorality inherent in e Although contextually crafted as a western the series is far deeper than the traditional westerns many of us grew up watching. The simplistic division of ‘good guys ‘and ‘bad guys’ been tossed aside, brought closer to the context of a modern crime series. The standard archetypes easily identified by their hats have supplanted by some morally ambiguous characters obfuscating the intentions of those characters readily identified as inherently evil. Lawyers, public relation executive, and some community lead frequently serve those with duplicitous intentions, but they are nothing but pawns to impede the true bastions of justice. Walt and Henry are anachronistic, men with the unswerving dedication to justice untarnished by the compromises embraced by twenty-first-century practices. They represent reasonable men forced to live and work in an unreasonable set of circumstances. This series is s written with each episode’s script a taut and efficient chapter in a mystery novel. The amount of attention paid to the minutest details is something rarely approached with broadcast or basic cable. The characters, even those with a strongly developed sense of justice and community are flawed. These are not caricatures, perfectly attired riding in on a magnificent white stallion to save the day. Walt’s dilapidated car is a mess covered in dings and dents of previous chases and encounters with the villains. Walt is still grieving his murdered wife but in this season has begun to reenter life by dating Dr. Donna Monaghan (Ally Walker). If this series had been left abandoned to die by A&E not only would the cliffhanger remain frustrating unresolved but so much of the character development would remain explored. Netflix has just released the entire fifth season; whether you choose to binge watch or emulate weekly episodes be glad, they resurrected such an example of quality entertainment
