Storyline

Walt Longmire is the charismatic, dedicated and unflappable sheriff of Absaroka County. Widowed only a year, Longmire is a man in psychic repair that buries his pain behind a brave face and dry wit. Struggling since his wife's death and at the urging of his daughter, Cady, Longmire knows that the time has come to turn his life around. With the help of Vic, a female deputy new to the department, he becomes reinvigorated about his job and committed to running for re-election. When Branch, an ambitious, young deputy decides to run against him for sheriff, Longmire feels betrayed but remains steadfast in his dedication to the community. Longmire often turns to close friend and confidant Henry Standing Bear for support as he sets out to rebuild both his personal and professional life, one step at a time. Written by A&E TV

As a loving fan of the Walt Longmire mystery novels
13 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, I must say this TV series is amazing and I trust it will have a multi-season run and wind up in syndication.

That said, I must confess some of the characterizations are breaking my heart, almost to the point where I have to consider the TV series as a completely separate creature from the novels or it would make me crazy.

Fortunately, the depiction of Walt is the most on target of any of the characters, but so much is still lacking after having seen all ten episodes. I know TV can't satisfactorily afford the viewer Walt's mind's eye perspective, but without that inner dialog his stoicism comes off so one dimensional it hurts. How to convey his lingering trauma as a Viet-Nam vet? What about his spiritual experiences that make him a wonder amongst the Indians? And why are all his relationships being cast as so confrontational? In the pilot he practically accuses Henry of running a brothel, whereas in the books the trust between them is beyond implicit, beyond brotherhood. Why does his daughter, Cady, seem to question his professionalism? Why must he have an adversarial relationship with the Indians on the Res, whereas in the books he enjoys a status of respect and deep significance? Why is his relationship with Lucian, his predecessor as Sheriff, mentor, and continuing friend and confidant in the books, depicted as him enduring the meddling of a cantankerous and resentful retiree? The writers seem to be going out of their way to create plot tensions at the expense of sacrificing relationship intricacies that make Walt's world so endearing in the books.

Lou Diamond Phillips, cast as Henry Standing Bear, will disappoint me as long as he continues slipping contractions into his lines, and as long as he keeps grinning and chatting like some glib casino host. Henry is supposed to be stoic, stone-faced even, and Lou isn't making me a believer... yet.

Regarding Victoria, I understand the network lacks the balls to allow her the same sort of foul language as in the books, but did they have to dial back her brazenness to the point where she comes off more like a sorority girl with a 'tude instead of a gritty, veteran Philly homicide detective? Not all the lines that give The Terror her perverse charm in the books require expletives. So far I get no sense of the edginess that makes the character so daunting and compelling in the novels.

The gripes I have with some of the other characters, like Omar and The Ferg, are trivial in comparison, so I'll spare everyone. All gripes aside, I will be a faithful viewer. I won't be able to stop myself because I love Walt Longmire's world so much.
