She looks like Clay Matthews of the Green Bay Packers. There isn't a person working at the office except the secretary that can follow an order and isn't running some one man crime busting plan of their own. And Longmire won't own a cell phone, and never calls for back up?


It's a small town, not Chicago. Most of
the time back up is not needed. And
on a small town police forces you learn
to think for yourself because there isn't
a squad of people back at the station
doing the small stuff. You have to be
everybody all rolled into one deputy.
I have no cell phone and totally understand
Longmire.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

I have lived in many small towns, and familiar with the cops. I'm talking about the situations where he is going in with gun drawn, and expecting to be in a gunfight. This ain't marshall Dillon times. How many on his small force have been shot, and not wearing a bulletproof vest? One deputy killed, him and Vic have both been shot. You are being a bit unrealistic.

I don't think realism is particularly important in story telling. Our oldest stories from the Epic of Gilgamesh, to Illiad and the Odyssey , to Beowulf, to Cervantes and Shakespeare have had little realism.

I haven't seen this show, but the charge of being unrealistic is meaningless to me. I just saw Lucy, and my problem with the movie was not so much that it was unrealistic as that it was not very cohesive.

Godless, Nflix series. I made it thru a 1 hour
ep that felt like 2 hours. Very slow moving
and poor character development. I read
some reviews and it gets really strange later
with interracial couples and Gay women,
something that got you put in prison
in the 1880's in the West. And the ending sucks,
apparently. No thanks.

I've been seeing lots of good things about this show, but EB doesn't like it.

Must be the next Stranger Things! I will have to check it out...

Longmire. 3rd ep of the 4th season,
Longmire confronts the Gerald McRaney
character. The final 15 min of the show
is compelling TV, best I've seen in awhile.
Had me holding my breath at times, the
acting was that riveting. McRaney never
disappoints, he was wonderful as Hearst
in Deadwood, and even in House Of Cards
he was spot on great. He steals every
scene he's in, reminds me of Sterling
Hayden in his older years, he did the same thing.

Nflix is hitting the bigtime. Will Smith is
starring in a major production of theirs.
Looks like big bucks to me.

Netflix as already been making some pretty expensive productions.

810. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage $40 million/season
7. Hemlock Grove $40 million/season
6. Orange Is the New Black $50 million/season
5. House of Cards $60 million/season
4. Marco Polo $90 million/season
3. Sense8 $108 million/season
2. The Get Down $120 million/season
1. The Crown $130 million/season

Will Smith doesn't just make 9 figure production budget films. He sprinkles in some mid size budget films

Collateral Beauty Release Date: December 16, 2016 Production Budget: $36 million
Concussion (2015) Release Date: December 25, 2015 Production Budget: $35 million
Focus (2015) Release Date: February 27, 2015 Production Budget: $50.1 million
Seven Pounds Release Date: December 19, 2008 Production Budget: $55 million
The Pursuit of Happyness Release Date: December 15, 2006 Production Budget: $55 million
Hitch Release Date: February 11, 2005 Production Budget: $70 million

After Will Smith's massive success in the mid 1990s, he ended up making three turkeys in a row. I guess every movie star figures out that if he only make s very expensive movies, he will be remembered for his failures as well as for his successes. He should mix in some films with more modest goals.
