  • Incredibly intense

    This show doesn't hold your hand. Doesn't babysit neither.

    I am absolutely stunned by some of the fighting scenes. Unlike the typical quick messy half sec edits where you don't even have any idea who is punching who, we get to see a masterfully orchestrated choreography in many of the key fights.

    Some of the scenes are so intense that I don't remember watching anything at that level in neither movies or tv. And that apply to both fighting or non fighting scenes.

    This is triple A show, even underlined by the fact that key actors do come from many different places of the world.
  • Titles = pressure.

    Today, you can tell the quality of a program by its kill scenes, lol. The fight scenes, kills, and general action on Banshee is superior to most TV programs and Movies. Excellent.
  • Entertaining, Great Acting and Intense Action

    I just can't stop watching this show. The locations, actors, is great. The plot is a good one and the action is really intense, while not overdone. I am amazed with how they keep coming up with great plot twists without making the show hard to follow or enjoy. Not really another show like it on TV.
  • my favorite show period!!!

    this show gives the fans what we want week in and week out. the story lines keep progressing at a great pace, I hope the writers can keep it up. my tv experience is ruined by banshee because nothing comes close it, especially from an entertainment aspect . its just on another level. lucas hood is the coolest character on tv today and his enemies are some of the best villains tv has to offer from proctor to chayton to albino to just name a few. the action and fight sequences are top notch stuff I hope this show can go for a long time!!!
  • oh my god!



  • awesome show

    love the show has really good violence in it makes it interesting hope it keeps going and doesn't get cancelled so they can put some stupid lame sitcom

  • Lot of Blood & Sex - Great Direction

    Although Lot of Blood & Sex but the story is strangely amazing and different and the director did a great job.
  • boom!!!wow!!!boom!!!

    So sad to see the path of alan ball. Its pretty much simple, he traded great quality/no shiny action in six feet under for the exact opposite in banshee. Already true blood was a good indicator of the downward line he chose to take in terms of quality. But in the end it probably works out for him, wanted a larger audience and what a better way to do it, than a primitive action series with mediocre acting and dumbed down script. Sooooooo kudos to him, i guess.

    Btw creators should really learn how human muscles work and what kind of effect a sharp object tearing them, does on the human ability to control certain actions. But yeah follow the motto - doesnt matter how *** shit is, if it brings me da moneyh, riiiiiight?
  • Madness Banshee

    Wow... What amazing show, non stop madness. This is just awesome. Getting better and better

    Can't wait for next episode. Excellent work from everyone, great plot, great acting and awesome madness situations. Renew from now for season 4 and 5 please. Keep on going...
  • WOW Awesome Show

    Never saw a show like this. It is OUTSTANDING, great actors, explicit language, violent action and drama, lots of blood and guts, raw sex. Much better than Breaking Bad or 24 and they were excellent. The writers are doing a great job on this show. I love it. KEEP IT UP!!!!!!!!
  • Something for everyone!

    This show has an atmosphere about it thats independant, DIY feeling yet suberb acting and seriously intense visuals. The quality of that alone keeps me captivated. Fans of drama, romance, action and horror films and shows can all appreciate elements of this series. It feels so down to earth and real though at the same time.
  • BANSHEE knows no chancy...

    It's an action-drama and it delivers all that it promises! Violence, sex, complicated relationships, plotting, scheming, everything is there! Everything along with many "did that just happen?", "Is that possible?", "You gotta be kidding me!!!", etc

    It's plot driven and Starr (playing the anti-hero role model) serves it well! He, along with rest of the cast, make Banshee a unique show.

    Great scenario, strong acting, captivating camera work, exceptional show!

    Can't wait for the new season!

  • Awesome!

    A masterpiece.
  • Not for me

    Everyone their joy I would say And I see this show is wildly embraced by a lot of you but I am at episode 6 and I will lay it to rest I started watching it cause someone said about Ray Donovan that that series was a "Banshee light " Since I loved Ray Donovan I was full of anticipation but..... this is not good enough for me. The acting is rather bad Every episode must have one or two fight scenes He pulls through cause of memories of prison ( homeland ) Needless to say everyone wants to get laid No not for me
  • when is it comming back?

    Seriously when, i was [as Eliseer said in his comment] "jonesing" after seasons 2 i knew i had to wait, you can't rush perfection).

    (i write this at October first '14) iI can't wait anymore, I watched and re-watched the season "binge style" like you do.

    Can anyone tell me any information on dates of 3rd season. or if is any new content in "welcome to banshee" site [looked up

  • Couldn't even make it through the first season.

    It is probably one of the most pointless and shallow television shows I have ever attempted to watch.

    My only other experience with Cinemax was "Strike Back".

    As abysmal as the writing is on that show; it was mostly like a really long softcore call of duty cut scene -once I accepted what it was, I was able to not hate it.

    However with Banshee I can not find any redeeming qualities, it is like they gave up on even the pretense of quality and just decided to throw as much gun play, cars, boobs and general violence/aggressiveness at the camera as they could.

    As best as I can surmise Cinemax is Bravo for guys.
  • Damn, Cinemax

    Just finished rewatching both seasons. Mainlined that shiz and got it done in less than a week. Now I'm jonesing for more... Anyone that hasn't seen it is doing themselves a real disservice. I love all the major characters so much, but Job- oh, Job- has got to be one of the best characters ever. Hoon Lee, I love ya man!
  • Whose side are we supposed too be on?

    Thing about Banshee is that the good guys were bad guys and the bad guys are even worse that the good guys were when they were bad. But sometimes the good guys who were bad become bad again.

    We were also Dexter Fans and really miss that show!! Banshee doesn't replace Dexter, (No One Could),

    but Banshee gave us great suspense! It is very thrilling to watch and always made us look forward to the next week!
  • CAD 1

    Darn! Missed last episode of second season. Can you tell me if there was anymore of Amish people/family introduced into the last episode that were intriguing?
  • Hoon Lee fan

    Hoon Lee is the best actor on television today. Brilliant character week after week. Dame Maggie Smith on Downton Abbey is his only rival.

    This was the best episode, not that the other ones aren't. I'm now on pins and needles for season 3. When will you be showing those episodes? By the way from the beginning of the season 1, I was kind of lost as to what was going on, but this last episode explains a lot.
  • Shoot me now plz

    I love this show so much..... I'm going to miss it while I wait till January 15th for the next season. *tears* You will be missed, and I hope the 10 months go by quickly.
  • Yes sir/madame

    Love this show, Is it me? or Hoon Lee (jobs) is funny as hell. What White knuckle ride this show keeps you

    On the edge of your seat from start to finish
  • Can't ask more..

    Deep,dark,addictive,reflection of subconscious ,bold, cant ask more though i want more.
  • Best Show On TV NOW!!!!

    It's worth getting cinemax just to watch. Anthony Starr is the best. Proctor, Job, and the whole cast is amazing. There is sex, violence, romance, and just an amazing plot. I hope it stays on for years!
  • Bleeding Banshee

    I love how this show keeps me on my toes at every turn. I wish for something and it delivers but never in the way any other show might. No, no easy solutions unless its someone strangling someone during sex (not the good kind) I am always satisfied but always wanting more at the same time. Frustrated and sedated. Nervous but calm. This show has it and I think that as long as it keeps this up I will have to give up my day job to sit down and re watch it again and again
  • Kai Proctor is BOSS!

    last season was a beast. Carrie is going to tear her family up. Kai Proctor is Boss! I love Sugar and Job. They are But oh so fabulous!
