In the first-season finale of LONGMIRE, tonight on A&E at 10 PM, matters reach a boiling point between Absaroka County, Wyoming Sheriff Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) and Deputy Branch Connally (Bailey Chase) over personal and professional matters. Based on the novels by Craig Johnson, LONGMIRE deals with not only criminal investigation in the wide-open spaces, but its characters and the environment they inhabit. Executive producer John Coveny, who is one of LONGMIRE’s show runners with his writing partner Hunt Baldwin, talks about where the show has been in its first season and what we can look forward to in Season […]Read On »

Bailey Chase in LONGMIRE - Season 1 - "8 Seconds" | ©2012 A&E

LONGMIRE is A&E’s new contemporary Western procedural based on the mystery novels by Craig Johnson, airing Sundays at 10 PM. In it, we see that Absaroka County, Wyoming, has a lot of crime for such a sparsely populated expanse. Robert Taylor’s character Sheriff Walt Longmire is in charge of maintaining local law and order with the help of his deputies. Bailey Chase plays Deputy Branch Connally, who hankers after both the boss’ job and the boss’ daughter Cady (Cassidy Freeman). Chase, born in Chicago and educated at Duke University in North Carolina – he attended on a full athletic scholarship […]Read On »

Connolly, Series created by Hunt Baldwin & John Coveny, Based on the novels by Craig Johnson Director: J. Michael Muro   Network: A&E, airs Sunday nights Original Telecast: July 22, 2012 “An Incredibly Beautiful Thing” is yet another episode of LONGMIRE where you really don’t have a specific idea of where the story is going to go. I like the fact that this series, even though it’s set in a small town, has a width and breadth of diversity for the types […]Read On »

This series never ceases to impress with the levels of intrigue for each week’s mystery, and even though I figured this one out – it was only a couple of minutes ahead of the big reveal. So many elements of this […]Read On »

It’d be kind of funny just once to have a wood burned sign with the […]Read On »

I like the fact that it’s not the MURDER SHE WROTE formula, […]Read On »
