Banshee - any of yas watching that?

Postby undercover » Fri Feb 01, 2013 9:30 pm

Pretty graphic and rough in places and plenty of bits you kids wanna see. Good plot and sub-plots an alla that, shaping up well....

that lot wot do reviews and stuff wrote:Lucas Hood (Antony Starr [NZ bloke - http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1102278/?ref_=tt_ov_st]), 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...

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2017109/

Shit's gettin real messed up and it's only at ep.03

Can't be assed ripping the series, but enjoying it week to week so far - might get impatient to see it all already tho....

Yeah this show has been great so far. Thought it would be average but its shaping up to be one of the better shows of the year along with The Following.

It's only up to ep 4 in the states so it's not to far behind over here.

Yeah it's basically another FBI show but I don't know I'm diggin' it. It's a bit more of an interesting concept at least. I'm hoping it'll explode into something crazy by the end.

I'm giving it time anyway, two episodes in it's hard to tell. I thought the newsroom was up its own arse to start with, which it still was at the end, but in a great way.

You kind have to expect that from any Sorkin show, sports night was the worst though...how he managed to make a sport show seem important was beyond me, but he did it.

Yeah totally, got what I paid for so to speak. Since they were up their own arse about things I agree with, it's a lot more palatable.

I watched 2 eps of banshee the other day, not sure about it yet.
really confused as to why hes not willing to take money from the rich dude and be a bad cop, its not like he is actually a cop rather than a crim?

yeah, I get that I guess, but it looks to me like he's totally in his own game and just doesn't wanna be in anyone's pocket

I like how he goes all Punchmaster on shit. I like the bad guy, and the valet. Still no sign of his motivation but I hope it's not emo. Ep04 then...

I *really* liked that punch-up with the bitch and the Ukranian. Fucked each other up, maaaan. When he slapped her, and she's all, like, "FUCK?!", classic.

The creepy butler looks like old Portlandia :P

Thank you for watching, goodnight.
