Goofs

Liz is absolved of all federal charges except for ganking the AG, for which she is given probation. No mention is made of her shooting the local law enforcement officer. It could and would be tried under state law, where the corrupt federal government could not influence the charges being filed. See more »

The urban dictionary defines "ballsy" as

... an Adjective for someone willing to take risks.

My many reviews of this series already indicate it is one of my favorite shows and Spader's performance is a classic, in the same category for example as Falk in Columbo.

But what I especially like about the 2-part Director set is that it solves the ongoing problem of the "dual story arcs" in a novel way -- by scrapping the usual formula and going full out Mission Impossible.

Are there flaws? Only in terms of plausibility. The two ballsiest shows on the air now are Blacklist and Banshee and, as crazy as the writers in Blacklist are, the writers in Banshee are crazier.

However the Bankshee team manage to be crazier and yet more plausible at the same time. That is my only critical comment.

As pure entertainment, this two parter was a 10.

But plausibility is an issue.
