A master thief, fresh out of prison after 15 years, assumes the identity of a dead sheriff in Banshee, PA after tracking down the woman he loves, while trying to avoid detection from her father, a Ukrainian mobster that is looking for the two is them in order to kill them for double crossing him.
Due to a political conspiracy, an innocent man is sent to death row and his only hope is his brother, who makes it his mission to deliberately get himself sent to the same prison in order to break the both of them out, from the inside.
Lucas Hood, an ex-con and master thief, assumes the identity of a murdered sheriff where he continues his criminal activities. His past seems to haunt him by those he betrayed years earlier. This ex-con imposes his own brand of justice where violence erupts at every turn in the not so quiet Amish town of Banshee, Pennsylvania.Written by
Trieste Kelly Dunn said that Antony Starr whispered "Gaaaary" in her ear when her character asked what Hood's real name is. See more »
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 started watching this by chance. I was scrolling through what downloads had popped up, films etc, and I seen this. At first I thought it was a cartoon due to the strange picture it has for the series. Anyways thought I'd give it a shot and download it. The first episode was a little over the top, what with all the shooting and chases etc, but the story was more than enough to make me want to watch another episode. I thought nothing could top Game Of Thrones or Dexter as my all time favorite TV shows, but this has. The acting from the lead guy Antony Starr is just phenomenal, he really makes you believe it. The fight scenes are really something else. I grew up in a bit of a rough area and was constantly getting into one fight or another, and the fight scenes in this are more than believable. The sex scenes are a bit more explicit than they need to be, but other than that I am well pleased with this so far.
