From the creator of 'True Blood,' 'Banshee' stars Antony Starr as Lucas Hood, an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Pennsylvania, where he continues his criminal activities, even as he’s hunted by the shadowy gangsters he betrayed years earlier.
Banshee is one of the most satisfying shows on TV.
Its no-holds-barred, gratuitous and over-indulged use of violence is second to no show. Since its first season aired 3 years ago, there hasn't been anything like it on TV.
Imagine Jason Statham in the transporter taking down 40 bad guys in one scene with his bare hands. Shrink the scale, replace statham with Lucas Hood (Anthony Starr) and you short of have Banshee in a nutshell.
The season 3 finale was possible the best episode yet. Never seen so many bodies drop on a single episode of a show. All demanding loose-ends were tied with some cliffhangers left for next season. I cant wait.
If youre a hot-blooded man, this is the show for you. Not to be gender discriminatory, but it might be a little over-the-top for the average woman. That being said, I'm sure some women out there will enjoy it. I want to meet them.
If you are a lover of crime thriller shows then its the RIGHT one for you , for sure ....its one of the best on the tv right now . All the characters are up to the mark .well done team BANSHEE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't get enough of this show! A sexy ex con posing as a cop, bad-ass Amish mafia, a NY mob boss, native American assassins, secret identities; I can go on for paragraphs that's how much this show has going on! It's thrilling, interesting, sexy as hell, and extremely addictive. The directing is wicked and whoever writes the stories, I bow to you. What a great f-in show.
Banshee is a fast paced action packed crime drama. The cast is original, the script is original and the actors hit their marks. This backwater town (Banshee) is full of surprises. The show is led by a bad-ass former thief who becomes a law man. I recommend this show... it's ****ing awesome!
Violent yet so human... every emotion, anger, fear, love, compassion, friendship become real and apparent in every action.... they convey the cruel reality and the beauty of being human albeit sometimes they go about it the wrong way but whats more human than making mistakes!!!!! They still try to make a life... Great show... there are no heroes and no villains because we all have light and darkness.
This is one of my favorite action/dramas, I hate to see it go!
This will be the last season, do yourself favor and binge it, if you have time, only 10 episodes a season.
Best production value on the air, great writing, drama and action.
A lot of ass kicking, sub plots, deception and love making :).
OMG this is the best series ever. LOVE the fact that the GALS are nearly, well NEARLY as bad ass as the blokes. Brilliant series. You should watch it, y'all. Loving it, in my favourites. If you haven't watched it before, DO NOW :)
What can I say about this show other that, as absurd as the story, the dialogue and ALL of the characters are; I love it. The fight scenes had me at the edge of my seat, the show showed a real self awareness of it's absurdity sometimes in the form of some quality comic relief; especially in the closing episodes. I don't even really like thrillers/action kind of stuff but I just loved this show. Really really good stuff. Well worth a sesh if you have a weekend spare to smash through a new series.
