Banshee on Cinemax
Cinemax has made the first episode available on Youtube. Check it out.
I caught the free premier of this on HBO GO this month. I wasn't expecting much, but it's pretty entertaining. After three eps, it's obvious that the story is a massive clusterf*ck but it's loaded with decent action, T&A and a few cheesy twists so far. And of course there's this...

A couple weeks ago I got a freebie comic called "Banshee: Origins", and decided to watch the show. But I'm going to bank a few more episodes on the DVR before I really tackle the show.
And yeah, Ivana Milicevic is super hot.

And that comic I was talking about kind of fleshes out what happened with "Hood", Carrie/Anastasia, and Rabbit before "Hood" went to prison. But you get the gist by watching the show. "Hood" and Anastasia are in love, Rabbit doesn't know and wouldn't approve, so they decide to pull the diamond job and run away together.
Anyway, I really hope to see a Rabbit vs Proctor showdown.

I agree, though, Voodoo - episode 4's intro was kinda... wtf? And in retrospect for the entire season, that really stands out as a weird moment. And not just the corny action and weird freakout/utter failure, but why on earth was he robbing some painting to begin with? I thought it would be significant later on, but it was really just a poor excuse to break Anna out of her shell.
Anyhow. Who doesn't love punching and f*cking? Stole my heart, they did.

Welp, season two is on now. I was pretty excited for this premier and after watching it, I'm redefining my affection for the series. I think I'm just going to watch it for the f*cking, punching and shooting without placing any expectations on the story. There's another WTF scene in the premier similar to ep 4 in season one and I hope they don't pursue that any further but either way, Odette Annable takes some of the sting off.

Edit - voods - what seen are you referring to?
Edit x2 - seen? Jesus I can't even blame autocorrect for that one.

I think it was the heist directly after all the intense court drama that threw me. It seemed a little odd to be back to business like that so soon after getting sentenced and all the sh*t that went down in the previous season. The casino beatdown in ep 2 was great.

But it's kind of weird how this small town has so many super hot women. The injun chick, the Amish girl, the deputy with the amazing eyes, and of course the Russian (Czech, whatever) mafia boss's daughter. That's got to be like 10% of the women in Banshee between the age of 18 and 40.
I'm not complaining, though. They all get naked sometime.
I've only seen the premiere so far, but really like what I saw, especially from Zeljko Ivanek.

I am enjoying it so far, I don't know how long it can last with a sheriff that knows next to nothing about laws and keeps beating the sh*t out of every criminal he comes across though. Doubt it will make it past a season but so far it is worth the watch.

What a wicked finale. I really dug the storytelling techniques they experimented with this season... Really out of place for a show of this nature but so very welcome.
The season's arc, overall, was a little muddled - it felt much more cohesive in season one. But that finale really pulled all the right punches.

The episode itself was cool, and I normally roll my eyes at deus ex machina, but Job and Fat Au saving them in the church was great. The weird thing is, that most of the flashback stuff, Rabbit killing the guy by the bridge, meeting Agent Racine on the street, the diamond heist, was all in that comic (that I mentioned a few months ago) that was given away for free over a year ago before the first season. It was kind of cool to see it all remade. I think you can still get it for free on Comixology.

Yeah, the finale had all the punches. The flashbacks were rich. What I also liked was that they introduced a new character in the flashbacks and brought him back into the present just after one of the strongest scenes of the series. Job is f*ckin Job.
Rabbit's dialogues on that bench were well written. Poor Agent Racine and Oleg and of course The Thunderman (I thought he was a major character.)
Oh and I forgot to talk about the soundtracks. Good creativity in that department too.

There are better written shows for sure but I can't think of many that have been so satisfying to watch. This show doesn't hold back on the entertainment and I enjoyed this season immensely. Fat Au needs to come back in season 3.
