DanielSilver11: The Casino fight on Friday's BANSHEE was one of the most brutal sequences I've seen on film...anywhere...ever. Snap, crackle, pop, ouchy!!

 

^made Adam Riff's clips of the week (one of my favorite reads every Sunday morning)

the fight scene is seriously insane towards the end.

 

I have no idea what this show is about

But I've seen a couple clips/.gifs of this show and it is awesome

So whenever this show becomes available, I NEED to see it. To watch this sans context is just ridiculous. I love the horrified people just watching it and letting it go as far as it does.

 

 

 

@danielsilver11: ”Sheriff Hood on BANSHEE is my new favorite TV character. He’s one bad S.O.B. I want to see him and Raylan Givens go at it.”

 

I’m so sold on this show when you put Raylan Givens in the same sentence as any other character really.

just finished season 1 and this show is pretty awesome.

 

If you enjoy STRIKE BACK you'll enjoy this

this is sort of a cousin to JUSTIFIED, in a way.

it's basically just a ridiculous/over-the-top action movie each week. 

Super fun and well done.

 

People got to get on this one.

I'll be fucking damned if that wasn't one of the best TV episodes of the year...and as good/brutal of a fight scene as you'll see all year.

Ho-ly shit.

Adam Riff had it as their clip of the week AND they posted the full video as they always do.

 

...and I guess episode 5 in 2 weeks is said to be the shit too.

this show just did a motherfucking heist scene that was awesome/inventive with the camera direction and very ZERO DARK THIRTY-ish light, in a way. The best scenes from this show would be one of the best scenes of any movie in any year. And this show has, like, 3-5 like that per season...and does so much in each episode.

 

WHY THE FUCK ISN'T ANYBODY WATCHING THIS SHOW YET!?!?!

GODDAMN, WHAT A FUCKING FINALE THAT WAS THAT NONE OF YOU FUCKING SAW!
I HATE YOU ALL AND IF THIS BOARD WERE A PLACE, I WOULD BURN IT DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH ALL YOU IN IT!
YOU DISGUST ME!

 

with that said...

-just an A+ action-packed finale (there were tons of great action scenes all season long)...this and STRIKE BACK tend to bring it with each episode, particularly Strike Back since that's the point of the show. But Banshee can one-up that show with the sheer brutality and violence you don't expect.

-they realigned things in motion for season 4 pretty fast with things I saw coming a bit...but came in absolute full picture for 3 different parties

-anytime you bring in white supremacists into a TV show, we're in GREAT fucking territory...this show taps into all types of shit that is so underutilized in today's shows (the Amish! Native Americans! It's got everything!)

 

Doc Jensen of EW had a write-up on falling in love with the show (started watching FULL episodes only with the 3rd episode of season 3...so only watched from then on, it seemed)

I don't know how you can be a paid TV writer and just fall in watching shows that way.

lol i just checked this thread out for the first time. You are hilarious Marty. Like watching a nervous breakdown forming over the span of several months.

 

 

And like i said before: I don't know anyone in real life who watches this show, which means i don't have anyone to chat with about it, so I won't watch. I'm already watching way too much other shit.

Just wanted to let you know Cassidy that I was sick over the weekend and binged watched the first two seasons of Banshee.  Season 1 is streaming on Amazon Prime right now and I really liked the show so I went and downloaded the next two seasons as well.

Very solid show so far (I'm just starting season 3 today, so no spoilers).  It's a lot of fun and I like that it's not super serious and gritty 100% of the time; I feel like they were kinda going for a more of a "comic-book awesomeness" rather than anything realistic, because there is no way Sheriff Hood wouldn't have been thrown back in jail after that fight with the MMA guy in season 1.  Speaking of which, holy shit, these fight scenes are awesome and so damn brutal; the fight with the MMA guy was hilariously ridiculous, breaking his arms, ripping his fingers apart, jesus.  The Albino fight was awesome too.

And is it me or did the style of the show really begin to change towards the middle of season 2?  I feel like it started in that episode when Lucas and Ana were at the farm house he bought and the sniper was after them.  They started doing all kinds of different things with the cinematography in that episode, lots of close up shots, lots of meandering scenery shots.  Not that it was a bad thing, but the earlier stuff seemed so much more subdued (if that makes sense) and then it's like sensory overload with bright and faded colors and John Woo gun fights in the church.  Just wondering if that stuck out to you as well and if it was intentional by the directors or me just being weird.

Also, I'm not sure if Job is one of the best characters or one of the absolute worst in recent TV history.  He is definitely unique, but I'm glad he's not overused either.  He's like the embodiment of gay stereotypes and a superhero.  Some of his scenes are pure gold and others make me roll my eyes so hard it hurts; but I think that the intention they had for him (I hope).  Either way, he's a fun addition to the show overall I think.

Overall, great show so far.  I'll probably finish season 3 over this week and post my thoughts about it then.

some shit with Job in backstory scenes in season 3 are brutally bad...but I lean towards him being fucking awesome and I do imitate his cursing from time to time with my brother.

The show is the tits. Wait for how season 3 goes: ho-ly shit. There's change towards the end too.
