Agree about Henry. The TV character ought to be Henry Teddy Bear.

Kassidy Freeman acts about as well as Costner (wooden) and has crazy eyes.... creeps me out.

Sheriff Longmire is a great character, well written and well acted. Especially since it's an Australian actor doing a damn good American accent
Barry Sloane (sp?) is also Australian . Pretty thick accent.
Couldn’t stand Cassidy Freeman’s character….not at all.

We really enjoyed the series. They left it open for Walt’s daughter to take over his job.

One of the episodes Walt was being shot at long range with a Ruger No 1. He would run and drop after counting to four, the time it would take the shooter to reload and get back on target.

Walt grabbed a Win lever from his truck and nailed the guy driving away. With open sights.

Where do you see good action like that on Woke TV?

Show was pretty good. Books are simple, and a good time filler but nothing outstanding.

Yep. Phillips is a good actor, but he’s a pipsqueak.
Guess there’s not a lot of great Native American actors to choose from.
And of course,Phillips is not a Indian / Native American anyhow. His mother is Filipino and supposedly his dad had a smidgen of Cherokee DNA.

And the midget man, Tom Cruise just about ruined the first Jack Reacher flic for me. 🤪

The guy playing Reacher on the Amazon series did a great job, and is much more believable than Cruise, as Reacher.

Fairly typical of a lot of small town or backwoods LEO Departments.

Kinda like Uvalde. 🤪

I like it! I record the three shows every week on the Outdoor Channel and watch over the weekend.


If we live long enough, we all have regrets. But the ones that nag at us the most are the ones in which we know we had a choice.

I would say he should've just banged the blonde deputy in the first season and gotten it over with, but......

Wifey got me the complete series on DVD last year for my Birthday.
We watched it together the whole way through. Both of us really enjoyed it.
Like that old Chevy pickup of Standing Bears and Ferg’s T/A too.
Very good series, IMHO.
