What a winner. Walt Longmire an honorable man with integrity; brilliantly played by Robert Taylor. Love his character,a strong, silent, all around good man. The show features an excellent supporting cast. Characters are strong and well portrayed. Vicky,spunky,loyal,dedicated deputy who sticks by Walt no matter the challenges. Whom is most likely in love with Walt as well.

Lou Diamond Phillips, Walt’s sly Indian best friend does an outstanding job as the bar owner who has genuine native American tracking skill. He also enjoys a special closeness with Cady, Walt’s daughter. The relationships between Longmire’s daughter and a deputy,who wants to be the next sheriff sometimes causes a rocky atmosphere. Gerald McRaney,wealthy obnoxious father of this deputy has a limited role that proves to have a significantly great impact during highly rated High Noon episode. Longmire season 5 lives up to the previous four. Walt continues his fact-finding crusades, mostly with-in the law. His deputies are developing into major story lines. Several bad guys and semi bad guys weave into the story line.

Movie Quality: 9/10

Final Thoughts

The finale suggests enough of a story to continue the series into a sixth season. With Netflix already producing a final season 6, it is sad to see this show come to an end, but I can’t wait for the series finale since this has been one fantastic show from start to finish. If you are a longtime fan, do yourself a favor and add this DVD to your collection.
