YMMV / Longmire

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Jacob Nighthorse offers ground for a great deal of it, including in-universe. Is he a basically good person genuinely trying to help his people using unscrupulous and shady methods? A greedy businessman who preys on the Cheyenne Reservation and does more harm than good to its inhabitants? How sincere are radical politics, and how much are they a shield for his ambitions? Is he right to try to invest the money from his projects into infrastructure to help the Rez long-term, or is he demonstrating exactly the kind of arrogant Condescending Compassion that the U. S. Government once did? Even his allies have different opinions on these subjects - and that Walt loathes him and thinks the worst of him in almost every situation doesn't help.
  • Fridge Horror: When Longmire tries to convince Dr. Weston to change the cause of death on Branch's death certificate, the doc says Longmire will need more evidence than dirt in a shotgun shell to convince a court to change it. Considering Longmire is the only one to hear Barlow's confession, and Barlow is now dead, it's likely Branch's cause of death officially remained a suicide. To add insult to injury, the Connallys seem the type to have a family cemetery plot, so it's also likely Barlow is sharing a grave with his murder victim.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Malachi murders one of his own men when he tries to back out on killing Hector.
  • Nightmare Fuel: David Ridges, especially how he methodically breaks down Branch Connally's sanity.
  • Screwed by the Network: Despite being one of their most popular shows, A&E cancelled it after the third season due to being too expensive and having viewers too old for their desired demographic.
    • But it was later renewed on Netflix and ran for three more seasons with the sixth slated to be the final one.
