99 Words About … The dusty misfire of A&E’s ‘Longmire’

Sheriff Walt Longmire makes Tommy Lee Jones look like a dozen-Red-Bulls-a-day chatterbox.

Friend: “What happened to your (heavily bandaged) hand?” Walt: “Hurt it.”

OK, then.

There must be plenty of interesting stories in rural Absaroka County, Wyo., but “Longmire” (10 p.m. Sunday, A&E) couldn’t find them with a search party, GPS and co-star Katee Sackhoff’s (“Battlestar Gallactica”) brilliant smile leading the way.

At least it’s giving viewers a break from “Storage Wars” reruns, even if it feels like something unearthed from a cobwebby, long-abandoned locker by one of that show’s scavengers.

Most likely Barry. He never finds anything good.
