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!
One of the best shows out there so far. Definitely # 1 on my list. 8 episodes is already making me upset but at least we have season 4 coming. Better be a lot more seasons. Awesome story and awesome cast. Thumbs up to the director. I heard and hope this is just a rumor, but supposedly this is the last season and if it is I will definitely be upset with Cinemax. Best show out there. You also better bring Joe back, he was awesome.
Only on the 1st season.. but I can't seem to stop thinking about the next episode. This show has so many twists and turns and when you think Lucas is going to lose.. He comes out triumphant.. Its like a roller-coaster meets a well written soft core porn... I love it. Keep up the good work Cinemax.
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.
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.
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!!!
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?
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!!!!!!!!
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.
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
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.
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!
