Banshee is my guilty pleasure. Yes, it's gratuitous and hyper violent and sexual. But underneath all that it has some of the best and most complex characters currently on TV period. Combined with a unique setting and storytelling that focuses on the overall story arc, this all comes together for a thrill of a ride. It might be the in your face, gritty action that keeps you on the edge of your seat--but its the nuanced and original storytelling that manages to make very real world emotional connections (despite the admittedly fantastical/not realistic at all backdrop) that actually keeps you coming back to the show.
I wasn't quite sure how they would top season one, but was pleasantly surprised at just how well season 2 flowed from season 1's storyline. The Rabbit plot line comes to a satisfying conclusion, and a whole new world of other drama is set into motion mainly dealing with the local Native tribe and Proctor (the unscrupulous ex-Amish mafia boss). Banshee also didn't...
Consistency of characters, continuity of existing story lines coupled with action, excitement and intrigue are what makes Banshee a great series!
Where can they possibly head next?
Can't wait until next year!!
Banshee - one of the best shows on cable - gets a FIVE STAR rating!
To put it bluntly, I was amazed! Note that I do have cable TV but that I do not subscribe to the titty channels, so that the relatively infrequent nudity and just-below X-rated sex was a delightful surprise, as were the frequent F-bombs that occurred exactly when expected (as they would in a more or less real-life situation, depending on your personal experiences). My partner was offended by the language (and the sex) so I had to watch this all alone but that didn't mean I enjoyed it any less.
You can get the plot anywhere (Wiki is a good place to start) so I'll not go into that. What I will HIGHLY recommend is watching each season's BANSHEE ORIGINS set of clips so you can get a heads up on what you're about to see without having to figure it out piecemeal from the episodes themselves. Note that this is absolutely necessary at the beginning of season four, where a lapse of 18-months has occurred.
The clips were scripted and shot separately from the episodes...
