A&E premieres new drama "Longmire" starring Bailey Chase tonight at 10/9c. This is a contemporary crime thriller set in Big Sky country, based on the Walt Longmire Mystery novels by Craig Johnson, Chase plays Branch, an ambitious, young deputy who decides to run for sheriff. It also stars Robert Taylor, Katee Sackhoff, Lou Diamond Phillips and Cassidy Freeman.

Might want to make a note of the Whedon connection? I had to IMDB it to look it up, as this is a pretty obscure one (Riley's friend Graham from Buffy for those wondering). Now I'm just disappointed they never followed up with the potential Graham as a werewolf storyline after being attacked by Oz.
Anyone else wish he would've come back on Castle? Also, it's good to have more Katee Sackhoff on TV.
Thanks for the link. I've been jonesing for some Katee Sackoff and I think this is a good fit for her.
Good news for Bailey, he's improved his acting a lot since he was on Buffy.

I don't think Graham was ever attacked by Oz though? He was attacked by a hairy demon that was wrongly assumed to be a werewolf.
I'm glad Bailey has a new show. I loved him in Saving Grace.
Thank you for the clarification Tumnus, I hadn't realized what the Whedon connection was.
He was terrific in Saving Grace. Agree with Leaf, and LadyJay here. He has improved a lot since Buffy. Gonna check this show out. And who doesn't love Katee?
His character on "Longmire" is a jerk. He grated on me (which I acknowledge he's supposed to do). I was surprised that Katee didn't have very much screen time. That really needs to be rectified, it's a waste of her talent otherwise.
I thought the pilot was not bad, but not a knockout. It looks to me like a decent second tier entertainment, something to watch if you like cop shows with a Western element, but not really breaking new ground. If the writers flesh out Sackhoff's character more, it might be worth watching regularly.
