On an OG recommendation I decided to watch banshee, halfway through the first season.  So far it’s great.  

 

My question is, does it fall off at some point?  And I am kinda getting a monster of the week vibe here, or is that a false assumption?

Just like any other show, it does fall off.

 

It is a bit of a ridiculous show to begin with, so if you like it to begin with, you should be able to see it through until the end.

 

That being said, some of the sex scenes were better than porn.

Dude some of the sex scenes are nuts.  This dude gets more strange than vinny chase.

 

but yes, it is a ridiculous show absolutely and it’s over the top masculine shit is a bit much at times.  

But it’s fucking entertaining, it kinda reminds me of how Jessie Custer should have been portrayed in the preacher.

Actually the entire show seems like an adaptation of the preacher... but it’s better than the preacher TV show on AMC.

One of my favorite shows ever. And yes the 4th season is a little rough but ends great.

I always thought the dude who plays Lucas hood would make a great batman but now hes in the boys on prime

The boys thread, and everyone being like “holy shit homelander is Lucas hood” is what brought me to banshee.

Banshee is great, but it does tend to get quite absurd. Remember in the last indiana jones when indy survived a nuke by climbing in a refrigerator? Like that. But with more martial arts.

I mean if the opening scene of the series with the car chase scene shoot out didn’t tip you off that it was over the top, then idk what to tell you.

It's an entertaining show for sure. You do have to suspend disbelief at times but that's true for 99% of TV shows.

Just let yourself be entertained and enjoy. Some pretty girls in this series to look at.

I heard great things about it but didn't get past the first episode unfortunately.

It wasn't a terrible pilot but a little too comic bookish for me (shootout with a tattooed Euro Trash in downtown New York, kills a guy in a bar and the owner - a complete stranger - agrees to help him cover it up, psycho bad guy runs the town).

And yeah, he walks into the police station after all that - minor spoiler here - and instantly they buy that he's the new sheriff. Bit of a stretch that they wouldn't figure that out pretty quickly given he has exactly zero experience being a cop.

She could be the hottest girl I've ever seen in my life.

She cant keep her clothes on in all the series shes been in.....season one of true detective, ray donovan ect. Always naked and absolutely gorgeous. Her ass is the second coming of christ.

I fucking love Banshee.

Job, Kai Proctor, and Proctor's right hand man (dude with the glasses) are three of the most underrated characters ever.

Not many bad guys on any show ever as good as Proctor.
