The USMC Marines from Camp Genoa are seen in town in their digital (deployment) uniforms. Marines cannot wear those off base other than being in actual field training or combat. For the bar and town scenes, they would be in some combination of the Alpha or Bravo uniform, the dress green blouse and trousers with the Khaki shirt and tie. Or at more formal events, in their blues. See more »

During the first season, the opening credits show a safe being unlocked. The numbers shown are 42-15-68, and these numbers have meaning. 42 is the amount of deaths that occur during the first season, 15 is the number of years Hood spent in prison, and 68 is a reference to Revelations 6:8 which was spoken by Kai Proctor in episode 1.7, 'Behold a Pale Rider'.

I don't agree with some of the negative reviews. After watching the pilot I didn't know what to think of the show. After looking for some shows to watch as I was bored, I came across Banshee. After seeing the first series. I can definitely say, I'm hooked.
At first it was kinda slow and left you wondering what was happening but as the series progressed, I started to enjoy it a lot more.
Now that I have caught up with the show I'll be watching series 2 :D
Seriously give this show a chance. At first I was a little sceptical of banshee. The trailer didn't reveal much and the logo looks like a cartoon but once you start watching it you will be hooked...
