Great plot Action packed
4 February 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Banshee is packed full of action twist and holds the attention of the viewer no matter was seems to happen next. Banshee is a show I will be continuously be watching for those very reasons. The plot is incredibly interesting for a action television show, which I have to admit are not my first choice. I tend to stray away from action more or less because I feel the majority of them is mindless killing and weak plot lines. Even though the sex scenes are profound they are extremely…real, and shouldn't be taken lightly they may be hard to watch at times but if you keep a open mind you should have no problem. the story is the best part of this show and they leave out just enough information to keep you guessing, not as good as breaking bad but a close second or third. enjoy the action and don't miss the bonus scenes after the credits.
