Banshee - Cinemax's New Original Action Series | CinemaxFrom the creator of 'True Blood,' 'Banshee' stars Antony Starr as Lucas Hood, an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Pennsylvania, where he continues his criminal activities, even as he’s hunted by the shadowy gangsters he betrayed years earlier.
Has anyone gotten into Banshee? I just watched the entire first season in a binge on Comcast because of the Watchathon - all the premium channel series are available free OnDemand until the end of the day on the 31st (tomorrow).
I spent 10 hours watching the show and now I'm obsessed!
The write up from the site makes it sound like Alan Ball is super-involved, but I could only see his name as exec producer. There are other exec producers and it's created, written and directed by other people.....just in case anyone is wary of the show because of how he ran True Blood into the ground.
It's definitely not for kids. Lots of sex and VIOLENCE and not like on True Blood. These are all real people and they tend to beat the crap out of each other. Still, it's really compelling. It's got a little Sons of Anarchy feel to it. Lots of bad guys and not a lot of black and white and lots of eye candy....like on True Blood. Plus, a bada$$ transvestite Asian computer hacker with a Southern accent that would put Lafayette to shame!
Any other fans of the show?
