‘Banshee,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ and the Problems With Serial-Killer Plots

20 May 2016 9:41 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

I very much wanted to write a glowing tribute to “Banshee” today, the day of its series finale. And yet despite having loved its first three seasons, I can’t do that, in part because the Cinemax drama got tripped up by a device that also marred at least a couple otherwise interesting shows this season.

Banshee” could have spent the majority of its final season showcasing its wonderful cast, it could have told more enjoyably pulpy stories with rural-noir flair, and it could have left fans slack-jawed with glee after giving them a swan song full of fantastic action scenes and creatively staged fistfights.

Instead, it gave us a serial killer. An incredibly boring serial killer who led a Satanist cult. Believe it or not, that whole storyline was dumber than it sounds. 

The character and his preposterous coven felt as though they’d been borrowed from the most predictable procedurals on TV. »

Banshee Season 4 Episode 1 Review – ‘Something Out of the Bible’

Kris Wall reviews the first episode of Banshee season 4…

Warning : Full spoilers to follow.

I love Banshee, I just had to get that out there immediately !

As Banshee begins its fourth and final season, lets recap the events of season three that have lead up to now. The season opened with Lucas Hood leading deputies Brock and Siobhan on a quest of violent revenge to avenge the murder of Deputy Yawners  by white supremacists at the climax of season two, an act that Frank Castle would have applauded, but immediately put him even more at odds with a concerned Brock than he ever was before. Meanwhile Carrie’s criminal past came to light and completely exiled her from her husband, Gordon, and her children, Deva and Max. The hulking warchief, Chayton Littlestone, and the Redbones returned, laying waste to the Banshee P.D in retaliation for the death of his brother, »
