I like Longmire, I hope it gets picked up by somebody else.

It ended with one of the best cliff-hangers since Farscape. Even if Netflicks takes it I may have to spend some money to find out what happened.

Longmire has been picked up for a fourth season by Netflix!

Quote :
Once again, Netflix is the fairy godmother to canceled shows: “Longmire,” formerly of A&E, has officially been renewed for a fourth season and has a new home.

Netflix ordered 10 episodes of the Western drama, which was scrapped by the cable network this summer after three years. However, when one of the actors tweeted that the cast was still under contract until February, the rabid “Longmire” fanbase held its breath the show could go the “Community” route and get picked up by an online provider.

The show’s initial cancellation by A&E was a surprise to many, given that it was the most-watched scripted drama on the channel, pulling in around 5.6 million viewers a week. However, as the Wall Street Journal pointed out in a detailed story about its demise, it mostly boiled down to one fact: “Longmire” viewers were too old. With an average age of around 60 — well outside of the age that A&E covets for advertisers.

But guess who doesn’t care about advertisers and the appealing 18-to-49-year-old demographic? Netflix!

“When Warner Horizon Television came to us with the idea for a new season of ‘Longmire,’ we were intrigued because the series is so unique, and consistently great,” Cindy Holland, Netflix’s VP of original content, said in the announcement. “We are thrilled to help continue Walt Longmire’s story for his large and passionate following.”

Based on the Walt Longmire mystery novels by Craig Johnson, Aussie actor Robert Taylor stars as the title character: The “charismatic, dedicated and unflappable” Wyoming small town sheriff. The cast also includes Katee Sackhoff, Lou Diamond Phillips and Bailey Chase.

Spoiler alert: No word on a premiere date, but Netflix confirms that Season 4 picks up right after last season’s finale, when — seriously, spoiler alert! — Walt finally finds out who murdered his wife.

just don't sign up right away if this show is all you want it for. They haven't said when the show will be available to view yet.

When you do get it, check out some of the other Netflix originals available for streaming; like "House of Cards": pretty good political show starring Kevin Spacey, "Lillyhammer": New York mobster enters witness protection and goes to live in Norway, "Hemlock Grove": pretty good horror drama series with vampires, werewolves and even a female version of a Frankensteins monster. "Orange Is the New Black": drama about convics in a female prison.

I've watched and enjoyed them all and the good thing is that once Netflix puts a season of a show up, the whole thing is available at the same time so you can watch the eps at your own pace.

I have been thinking about this for a while. I very rarely watch TV shows when they air anyway because of my work schedule and then binge watch to get caught up using the on-demand from the cable company. Just saw tonight that Supernatural is being offered on demand,but only two episodes.

Since we've been talking about Netflix picking up shows, thought I'd talk about what I saw just today in the news. The show "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" produced by Tina Fey and starring Ellie Kemper (late of The Office) was supposed to be new mid-season show for NBC later this season. Well NBC dumped it before it even started to air and Netflix picked it up.

Shows how much NBC sucks, they had exactly three new shows I wanted to see for this season; Constantine: which is airing but I'm disappointed in, Emerald City: A really cool looking show based off the original OZ books that they dumped, and now this show that sounds like a good comedy and has two very talented and funny women attached to it.

Thinking about it, NBC has to be my least favorite channel out of the big four. There are only three shows I watch on it, Grimm, The Blacklist, and Constantine. And Constantine I don't think is very good and I'd probably have already stopped watching if it wasn't on right after Grimm.

NBC is definitely my least watched network but so far I've been pleased with Constantine. I have yet to read but a portion of the Hellblazer comics so I'm no expert on the subject.

Yeah, I'm not saying Constantine is horrible, I just expected more out of it... probably because of the comics. That said it is still new, maybe it will get better at meeting my expectations.

That was an oft-repeated phrase when I was growing up; that children were to be seen and not heard. Nowadays, the only people the media cater to is an increasingly whiny bunch of children 'cause they're still naive enough to buy whatever nonsense they want to advertise, whereas the mature viewer can make his purchasing decision on their own using their own intelligence and reasoning skills.
