Didn't find a thread on this show either. Anyhow watching "Banshee?" It's another show from Alan Bell so....there is at LEAST one graphic sex scene per episode and lots of people get the snot beat out of them.

Fun show!
When Harmony Jane Jones loses her cat, her car, her job and her boyfriend, all within the space of a week, she does what any 20-something woman would do. She runs away and joins the circus.

I'm watching it and can't tell you why. I like anti-heroes.

Resurrecting this old thread because we just got three free months of HBO/Showtime/Cinemax and, having caught up on Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire, I decided to binge this.

I'm up to episode 5 and not sure I'll keep at it. The sex and violence (especially the violence, amazingly) is so over-the-top as to be almost cartoonish. And the town of Banshee seems to exist in some parallel universe without any notion of an outside world. It's like a very dark version of The Librarians or Leverage without the humor.

Anyone know, is it worth it to keep going? Is there a nice payoff?
"C'mon o'er here, sweetums. Get down on your knees and--yeah, just shove them old magazines aside--get down there and lick my--no, them ain't nothing but cans I ain't yet took to the recycling. Here, how's about you put this blindfold on and stop with all the questions?"

"Oh, my!" said Annamae.
