And one more gem that I discovered "Longmire"

I may have read about it here actually, but I'm not sure. It is a made for cable show (think it was A&E) and the first season has ten episodes. Hoping the 2nd season will show up soon, can't find the reruns on TV yet.

From Netflix:

"Based on the Walt Longmire mystery novels by Craig Johnson, this contemporary crime thriller focuses on a Wyoming sheriff who's rebuilding his life and career following the death of his wife."

Katee Sackhoff from Battlestar Galactica is in it. She is one of a kind and gives a great performance.

1. I love it

Longmire is not 'showy' or overly dramatic and plays out slowly IMO, but I think the stories it has are interesting and well done. And the characters are not all black and white. For what is basically a crime show, I really enjoy it and am looking forward to the next season. I hope it comes back early in 2014 so we don't have to wait too long.

2. It appears that season two

was playing on A&E over the summer, so there's a good chance they will play the reruns before they air season three. According to IMDB, season two is 13 episodes.

I love the main character, Walt Longmire - quiet, understated, but complex.

Okay, I just checked A&E's website and season two will be rerun on November 15th. Looks like a marathon.

3. Thanks for that scheduling info

I'll check it out and make sure I didn't miss any, or just re-watch as a refresher before next season gets going.

4. You're welcome

I just finished watching season one about a week ago on Netflix, so it is still fresh for me. Really looking forward to season two, which included the sheriff's election.

5. There are some really good episodes in Season 2

And the upcoming election adds a little suspense to the story line.

I mentioned this in an earlier discussion of Longmire, but I was shocked to learn that Robert Taylor--Walt--is Australian. He really does a good job of speaking with an American accent.....or hiding his native accent, which ever way you would describe it. I am impressed with that in addition to his acting.

6. It could have been that earlier discussion of Longmire

that caused me to put it in my Netflix queue. Its been there a long time, so wasn't sure where I'd heard of it.

I was really impressed with Robert Taylor as well. I couldn't remember seeing him in anything, so I looked him up at IMDB. He definitely is convincing as an American. He has that slow, western drawl down!

7. I really like Longmire.

I wish the next season would come along faster.

I'm enjoying Continuum right now. That's a good show.

8. I have Continuum in my list now

but haven't gotten into it yet.

I hadn't seen the 2nd season of Longmire, so I'll have eight or nine episodes just from today to watch.

Meanwhile, I discovered "The Returned" on the Sundance Channel. Its a French series that just started a few weeks ago. Really good television. It has subtitles, but you forget that after a very short time. They do creepy suspense so much better than American television.
