Banshee Season Two Cements the Action Series as the Most Badass Show on TV [Review - ★★★★]

16 March 2014 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

Showrunner Greg Yaitanes has elevated the Cinemax series Banshee to an entirely new level of awesome by turning it into an action ensemble for the ages. Season two introduced new characters, killed old ones and whipped its legion of fans (aka Fanshees) into a frenzy with a great, weekly social media promotion spearheaded by its cast. The second season kicks off directly after the bloodbath that left villainous Rabbit on the run and the small town of Banshee riddled with bullets. An investigator comes to town to interview everyone who was involved in the mess and we as viewers begin to see real consequences of the actions these people took last season. Carrie (Ivana Miličević) heads to prison for her vigilante rescue efforts while her husband Gordon (Rus Blackwell) descends into a drunken »

Banshee, Ep. 2.10: “Bullets and Tears” is a smart, forward-thinking season finale

15 March 2014 4:54 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Banshee, Season 2: Episode 10 – “Bullets and Tears”

Written by Jonathan Tropper

Directed by Greg Yaitanes

Renewed for a third season to premiere in 2015

In last week’s review, I talked a little bit about how the decision to keep Rabbit around for another season might have been an understandable misstep for the freshman series, Banshee. “Bullets and Tears” makes the best case possible for why Rabbit’s presence this season has at least been important in helping develop the relationship between the man known as Lucas Hood (or Tom Palmer, as he would have been known in another life) and Anastasia. And even though I would have liked to have seen more Proctor or Chayton in the main antagonist roles this season (more on that below), “Bullets and Tears” is about as perfect of an ending to the Rabbit years of Banshee as you could get.

Part of that comes »

Ivana Milicevic Talks Banshee, Comparing the Seasons, Getting Fan Feedback, Her Character’s Complicated Relationships & Shooting Prison Scenes

13 March 2014 11:46 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Cinemax drama series Banshee is wrapping up its second season (and thankfully has already been picked up for a third), as Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-con and master thief who has assumed the identity of the town sheriff, continues to attempt to find a balance between his own criminal activities and solving crimes in a town with more bad elements than any one person can keep track of.  It’s intense, violent and bad-ass, but it’s also one of the most fun roller-coaster rides on television.  The show also stars Ivana Milicevic, Ulrich Thomsen, Frankie Faison, Hoon Lee, Rus Blackwell, Matt Servitto, Demetrius Grosse, Trieste Kelly Dunn, Lili Simmons, Antony Ruivivar and Odette Annable. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actress Ivana Milicevic talked about how tough this show was to shoot, how she feels Season 2 compared to Season 1, what it’s been like to hear feedback from fans, »

Banshee, Ep. 2.07: There are many “Ways to Bury a Man”

22 February 2014 3:23 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Banshee, Season 2: Episode 7 – “Ways to Bury a Man”

Written by Doug Jung

Directed by Loni Peristere

Airs Friday nights at 10 on Cinemax

With so many different directions to go and so few episodes left in its second season, Banshee surprises in “Ways to Bury a Man” by sticking to a plot it could have easily moved on from and by bringing back an essential dynamic of the series to the forefront. That plot and dynamic center around Jason Hood and Kai Proctor, respectively. In last week’s episode, Burton killed Jason and cleaned up the murder scene to give off the impression that the kid skipped town without saying goodbye to Hood. You’d be justified in wondering how Burton and Proctor would have missed something like that huge bag of cash in the bathroom, but for narrative purposes, it’s essential to tipping off Hood that there’s foul play involved. »

Banshee, Ep. 2.06: “Armies of One” – lightning strikes twice

15 February 2014 4:10 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Banshee, Season 2: Episode 6 – “Armies of One”

Written by John Romano

Directed by Babak Najafi

Airs Friday nights at 10 on Cinemax

“I don’t know if anyone ever changes, really. But we can evolve, right? I mean, that’s what we’re trying to do, isn’t it, just become better versions of ourselves?”

Babak Najafi and John Romano absolutely killed it in last week’s episode of Banshee, which is easily - easily – in the running for best television episode of the year. The director-writer pair returns this week in “Armies of One” and delivers something just as powerful and engaging, but in an entirely different way. If “The Truth About Unicorns” felt a lot like a Sofia Coppola film, “Armies of One” finds a home next to the works of Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Amores perros and 21 Grams). Its narrative is much more disjointed than the average Banshee entry, »

How Banshee Became One of Television’s Best Series

30 January 2014 7:07 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Opening remarks

It’s not even February and, already, 2014 is shaping up to be a massive year for television. True Detective announced itself as the year’s first new stand-out series. Against all odds, Dan Harmon and Community returned and are putting together a respectable comeback season. FX’s fantastic and hard-working Justified continues to solidify its place among the greats of the past decade. And Girls‘ unique blend of comedy and drama is once again pushing the narrative boundaries of the half-hour series in its third season.

One series, though, is leading the charge at the beginning of the year. The most unlikely of heroes, Cinemax’s Banshee, in just a matter of three weeks, has matured into something truly special – something a lot of TV writers refer to as “appointment viewing” when describing other series. With limited experience dabbling in co-produced original programming, Cinemax released Banshee – its first »

Banshee Season Two Review: Cinemax’s Rich, Violent Drama Returns Strong

10 January 2014 8:48 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last year, Banshee -- created by Alan Ball (and much closer to Six Feet Under than True Blood) -- quickly established itself as a hidden gem in its inaugural season.  Mixing visceral violence with beautiful cinematography, and a number of fun and emotional arcs, Banshee provided an intense experience that continues in its second season.  The past haunting Sheriff Lucas Hood (played by Antony Starr, whose character's real name is still unknown) as well as Ana/Carrie (Ivana Millicevic) can never really be put away, even after such a bloody finale.  New complications mix with old ones to create a rich and often difficult tapestry of problems for the town and Hood, with once again engaging results.  Hit the jump for more. For those who haven't watched the first season since last year, the second season premiere does a nice job catching viewers up on where the characters left off »

Pull Some Strings and Go Behind the Scenes of Cassadaga

6 January 2014 10:00 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Anthony DeBlasi's new film Cassadaga (review) is available now on DVD, and in case you need some added incentive to see it, how about digging on a brand new making-of featurette that goes behind the scenes?

The film stars Kevin Alejandro, Kelen Coleman, Louise Fletcher, Rus Blackwell, Hank Stone, J Larose, and Amy LoCicero.

Synopsis

Cassadaga tells the story of Lily Morel (Kelen Coleman), a post-lingually deaf artist, who participates in a séance in the spiritualist community of Cassadaga. But instead of getting closure with her recently departed sister, Lily contacts the vengeful ghost of a murdered woman. As the ghost becomes increasingly angry and violent, Lily rushes to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding the woman’s death – a task that will bring her face-to-face with a sadistic serial killer who turns his victims into human marionette dolls.
