Show Summary

This show follows Matt Passmore as Jim Longworth, a Chicago homicide detective who gets 'kicked' off the force after being shot and wrongfully accused by his ex-captain of having an affair with his wife. After receiving his payout, Jim decides to moves to the sleepy, middle-of-nowhere town of Palm Glade, outside of the Florida Everglades, where sunshine and golf are plentiful and crime is seemingly at a minimum. He joins the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) but finds that the town is far from idyllic when murders keep piling up.

  • Show was ok but too many problems

    Ok, some people here need to expand their tv horizons if you think Glades is so great with writing, acting, plots, etc. go watch Wire, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, Ray Donovan, Mentalist, The Shield, et al if you want true greatness. I started watching on Netflix and I'm about to quit on it season 2 ep 05ish. I think Jim is decent enough but I just cannot stand Callie and her being crow barred into every even working cases with Jim as a forensic nurse?! She tells him she wants time away from him when her husband returns then berates him the next episode when his partner from Chicago comes down. On like her first day as a a low level asst she is somehow responsible for telling a mom her baby is missing but "not to worry cuz WE are looking for him"... Bad actress, bad character--no wonder she was killed off Lost due to fans hating her character. Jim is a pussyfoot around her; Carlo is weak and is anyone really buying the woman who plays the police Chief?! Check out Life, Following or Guardian on Netflix for better quality. Her husband is actually one of the better characters and actors. And what's with the sons hair loaf??

    I was so looking forward to THE GLADES this summer. I was devasted that it was cancelled. I have watched Matt's new show and I hate it. I will not be following it. I loved him as Jim in THE GLADES.

    I am really disappointed with A&E. I also really enjoyed ALL the other characters. You had such a winning team there. How could you cancel it?

    I realise I am a little late to the party but I only just started watching Glades this year, after it was cancelled. I have really enjoyed the show and can't believe it ended like that. At least give us a Glades Special just to wrap things up. Callie and Carlos save Jim. FDLE catches the shooter. Jim and Callie get their wedding and most importantly all the Glades fans live happily ever after!!!!

    (worst series ending since Sledge Hammer)



    One of the few shows I watched in real time (most get recorded for later binge-watching IF they survive a season). Not too deep or dark - it would have been a perfect fit on USA (and maybe still could be - Satisfaction and several other USA shows are clearly "on the cusp" so could be some holes to fill)...

    With all the junk reality shows, I can't believe you would cancel a really good show like The Glades. Excellent plots, clever writing, super chemistry between characters. Who is making these stupid choices?
  • LOTS MORE REALITY, FOR ONE THING

    In the Wake of Longmire's Cancellation, What's Next for A&E?

    Ever since reality megahit Duck Dynasty began losing viewers, the cable network has been dodging bullets.
