    Previously on Longmire Season 1 Episode 7 "8 Seconds", A bronc rider, an affair and a secret about a seemingly worthless painting are only a few of the possible motives for why a wealthy beer distributor is found severely beaten. Vic's husband drops in and she makes a great effort to deal with his jealousy of her bond with Walt. Damaging information comes to light that could ruin Branch's campaign.

    On this week's Episode title "An Incredibly Beautiful Thing", Henry lends his tracking skills to a mazy murder investigation involving a dead gas-station owner, a missing woman and a dangerous cult.

    Widowed only a year, Longmire is man in psychic repair that buries his pain behind a brave face and dry wit. Struggling since his wife's death and at the urging of his daughter, Cady, Longmire knows that the time has come to turn his life around. With the help of Vic, a female deputy new to the department, he becomes reinvigorated about his job and committed to running for re-election.

    When Branch, an ambitious, young deputy decides to run against him for sheriff, Longmire feels betrayed but remains steadfast in his dedication to the community. Longmire often turns to close friend and confidant Henry Standing Bear for support as he sets out to rebuild both his personal and professional life, one step at a time.

    The best thing about “Longmire,” which is based on the mystery novels of Craig Johnson, is that it looks and feels quite different from the urban cop shows that predominate on television. The Western scenery is a character here, and no one seems in a hurry either to solve the crime of the week or to dole out back stories for Walt and his pals.

    They include a city-gal deputy named Victoria (Katee Sackhoff); another deputy named Branch (Bailey Chase), who we learn in the pilot wants Walt’s job; and Walt’s friend Henry Standing Bear (Lou Diamond Phillips in the cast’s most intriguing portrayal).

    The change of pace and place may be enough to bring an audience to this series, whose behind-the-scenes brain trust includes producers from “The Closer,” “Nip/Tuck” and “Southland.” There is something re-energizing about seeing familiar dynamics in a different setting.

    For instance, in an urban show there would be obligatory clashes between the city’s detectives and, say, the F.B.I. Here the feuding agencies are the sheriff’s department and the tribal police, and by the end of the premiere, you’re curious about how that enmity will surface in the future.

    As for the mystery elements, the opening installment feels a bit thin. The discovery of a dead sheep leads to the discovery of a dead man, and Walt’s investigation uncovers a prostitution ring and a not very surprising suspect.

    As the tale unfolds, some lazy choices are in evidence, which is alarming. You’d think that with the telegraph and the Internet and all, word would have reached even Wyoming by now that central figures in criminal investigations should not stand in front of windows during questioning when a sniper is known to be on the loose. Apparently not.

    But if nothing else, the pilot efficiently sets up the series. All the characters who are introduced have plenty of places they could go. The question is whether the show’s creators are willing to take them there.

    Speaking strictly in performance terms, Mr. Taylor is perfectly adequate. His “laconic” is as good as it needs to be for a role that doesn’t demand a lot, at least in the premiere. And he seems able to deepen the portrayal if the writers let him. There’s a lot bothering this guy, and a lot we don’t know about that dead wife by the end of the opening episode.
