This is the best show you’re not watching. The season finale is tonight and I cannot believe the ride is over for the year. Already renewed for a second season, Banshee has quickly become one of my favorite shows. Headlined by standouts Antony Starr (A New Zealand TV Legend, apparently) and Ulrich Thomsen (The Thing). Banshee started off with a gimmicky premise (sort of like the equally awesome Suits); wherein a recently released crook, due to an unfortunate incident, becomes the sheriff of a sleepy small town. This show’s first season has been one helluva ride, somehow unfolded into an epic love story about lovers forced apart because of circumstance. Throw in Amish gangsters, White supremacists, a sneaky First Nation tribe, and an Asian transvestite hacker named Job — and my god this show is good.
This is a show that you need to watch and luckily for you, you’ll be able to marathon the first season now. Honestly, this show should be on HBO not Cinemax — it is that good. Definitely worth the time and energy to watch. (Also, Odette Annable shows up as an aboriginal hitwoman, that’s how crazy this show truly is).
Catch the new episode of Banshee at 10:00pm on Cinemax.
