    the pilot was great, so very happy to hear it’s growing

  • Jase

    ^^Agreed. It’s a pretty good show overall.

  • Bill

    Glad the young viewers are watching. Got worried from the comments last week.

  • Olivia

    Good stories and good acting often win out over the usual schlock. I am mesmerized by it. Makes me want to read the books, too.

  • Chris

    Superb show (happen to like A&E’s Glades too). Excellent acting, good storyline (be fitting for a younger Clint Eastwood), and the locations are some kind of great aesthetics. Look forward to every new episode! Great job A&E!!

  • Peggy

    A very good show and cast, hope it goes on for a long time. I love the books!

  • lpurcell

    Great show but it needs a black person in it. Yep a strong Black woman defense atty or some type of govt position. It would add that little spark, because Longmire would have a strong friend with whom he could build a relationship with. It would be cool. Peace.
