My wife and I are almost through season 2. Good to great show, well-acted...but, like all crime shows that must me solved in 42-44 minutes, they always have to introduce the culprit or a key clue or two at some point and I'm starting to get really good at spotting them.

I've finished them all. I've tried not to binge when I watched them especially in Season 5 just to make it last longer. It's hard not to just keep on keppin' on but I try to limit binge watching to no more than three but try for two.

How do the books age Walt? What I have read he starts out as a Vietnam vet, so, by now he would be at least pushing 70? I remember reading the John McDonald's "Travis McGee" series, he started out a Koran war vet, but as the books progressed he subtly shifted him into Vietnam to keep him younger.

We are just starting this. That was the biggest negative, otherwise, it seemed like it could be good. Still going to give it a try but it's definitely not NCIS when it comes to processing things - not that it was perfect.

The wife and I have been binging this show. In the middle of season 4. Enjoyed it so far.
I did catch an oopsie, though. While watching the episode with the veteran drug thieves, I just happened to get up and walk by the TV to get something. The scene where the woman is pointing her gun at Walt. I immediately spotted the lack of hole in the gun barrel. Not a big deal. Just found it amusing.

I'm not really into "cop" shows, because I see it live and in person. However, I enjoyed this one mostly because of the location. I fell in love with Wyoming years ago, and hopefully when I retire from this shithole, Wyoming is where I'd like to settle.
I don't know, go be a forest ranger or something...
The only thing that turned me off about the show was that now I'm thinking that there's more murders in Absoroka Co. than in Chicago...
The good news is that at 63 episodes vs 264, fictional Absoroka county is still safer than Cabot Cove...
