Jumping into Banshee without seeing the first season is somewhat of a baptism of fire but it was something I found myself doing so I could do my Banshee: The Complete Second Season review. Watching the recap that comes on the first disc though I was able to catch up with the main plot and have an idea of what’s happened so far and by the final episode I may just have found one of my new favourite shows (to add to an ever-growing list).
With Lucas (Antony Starr) having survived the confrontation with Rabbit (Ben Cross) all of Banshee have to deal with the fallout, especially Carrie (Ivana Milicevic) who finds her past revealed and jail time on the cards. With Rabbit’s body »

The intensely violent Cinemax drama series Banshee is promising a bolder and even more ambitious third season. With the aftermath of the events of last season still looming over them, and an even more dangerous threat in town with Chayton Littlestone (Geno Segers) hell-bent on righteousness, ex-con and master thief Lucas Hood (Antony Starr) discovers the possibility of a huge but highly risky big-money heist and must re-enlist Carrie (Ivana Milicevic), Job (Hoon Lee) and Sugar (Frankie Faison) to help him pull it off. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actor Antony Starr talked about how the third season of the always ambitious show is maybe the most ambitious yet, the great response they’ve gotten for the previous seasons, the team dynamic, what sort of trouble Chayton Littlestone will be causing, maintaining the anchor of the show around the drama and characters, and where things are at with Lucas’ n love life this season. »

As a drama, "Banshee" is preposterous. It is ludicrous. It regularly defies laws of both plausibility and physics, and there's usually at least one moment per episode where I have to pause the action because I can't stop laughing at how ridiculous it all is. And that is why I've come to love it. "Banshee" is a show that should have no business working at all, let alone returning for an incredibly strong third season Friday night at 10 on Cinemax(*). At first glance, the premise — ex-con assumes the identity of a small-town Pennsylvania sheriff — feels extremely limited, like something better-suited to a straight-to-Netflix movie than an ongoing cable drama, even on HBO's pulpier sister channel. The amount of mayhem visited on this small burg in the middle of Amish country, and the colorful nature of the people perpetrating said mayhem, makes the place often seem a closer approximation of Gotham »
