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

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'.

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.
