    Banshee contains elements for fans of drama, action, horror and romance films and shows all in one. Like no other it seems while keeping a DIY, independent quality that keeps the atmosphere realistic almost and so down to earth. Feels more like you're almost in it as opposed to just watching it.

Like no other it seems while keeping a DIY, independent quality that keeps the atmosphere realistic almost and so down to earth. Feels more like you're almost in it as opposed to just watching it. Seriously intense visuals that you would expect only in movies or, european films that are not as censored overall compared to most major tv shows. It gives you elements you won't see in most popular tv shows with detail both in sex, violence and more. For true fans of something intense in all aspects! Expand

    Season 2 is even better than season 1, Now that Dexter has ended this is now my new favourite show. The characters are interesting and so are the villians. This season shows the vulnerablity of the protagonist Lucas Hood. While there is sex and violence there is also a really good story and unlike other shows it doesn't seem to be hold much back. Fantastic and funny characters, great storySeason 2 is even better than season 1, Now that Dexter has ended this is now my new favourite show. The characters are interesting and so are the villians.

Fantastic and funny characters, great story and possible the best action scenes on tv right now. A really good Must watch program. Expand

    Banshee isn’t reinventing the wheel. But unlike, say, Homeland, which no longer makes much sense as a show given the departure of its finest asset (Damian Lewis), this Cinemax series knows it’s crazy. It delights in its trashiness, its pulpiness.

    A taut, enjoyable second season.

    The problem is, Banshee is turning into just another show about a lawman with a colorful past that may not do everything by the book, but--he gets results!
