Banshee Review: “Armies of One” (Season 2, Episode 6)

14 February 2014 7:00 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s nearly two weeks late, didn’t air on a Sunday, and certainly wouldn’t pass network FCC regulations, but all the same, this week’s Banshee was 100% what you’d call a post-Super Bowl episode of TV. If you were a New Girl or Brooklyn Nine-Nine fan who suffered (or celebrated, if you’re from Seattle) through the big game just to watch the new episodes airing immediately after, you might have noticed how slightly “off” each show was from its established rhythm. When not cashing in on guest stars like Prince and Adam Sandler, both New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine were serving up simplified, easily accessible versions of themselves, downplaying the idiosyncrasies of the characters and comedy that won them devoted fans, instead emphasizing loud, easy gags, like a 2-minute riff on the proper pronunciation of “panties.”
