Crazy Credits

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'.

BANSHEE- The most happening Town at the moment.
14 February 2014 | by (India, Kolkata) – See all my reviews

This is the most talked about TV series at this time, and this is because of its ruthless pace in the storyline. Speaking of the very 1st episode within 5min from the start what we get to see is, an Ex-con, Drugs, sex, nail biting car chase, fraudulent identity and some hand to hand action which make us believe that every object around us is a deadly weapon. Well, now you can make an estimation of the pace of the story telling. Apart from its pace & unique action style, the acting and the making is of descent level, no need to say about the intensity of the thrills.

overall it's an excellent piece of work which will indeed entertain you in every aspects, if you know what I mean ;) Highly recommended!!!
