    Holy freaking crap this show is unbelievably awesome!!! I can't believe nobody has mentioned it or isn't watching. Easily my favorite show on TV already. Brutal, violent, acting is great, nudity throughout! Good acting and good story! Its on Cinemax if you aint watching you are missing out. Highly suggest going back to episode one somehow.

    Negative. Ray Stevenson was most recently on Dexter.

    The main guy in Banshee is Antony Starr.

    Cinemax has become my favorite pay channel. With The Hunted, Strike Back and Banshee they've become the best channel for quality action shows IMO.

    I loved The Hunted and Strike Back and have been looking forward to Banshee for some time. Definitely going to check it out.

    It feels a lot like the early seasons of Justified, with the added bonus of frequent nudity.

    I dunno Steve this show is about 1000 times more edgy and brutal than Justified. Hell after season and a half i quit watching Justified.

    Well, you're right, it is more brutal. There was more brutality in the casino fight episode than there was in a full season of any other show. I was just thinking it would appeal to the Justified fan.

    Dang good show.

    anyone think the daughter of Carrie is actually the daughter of Lucas. Last episode when Carrie said she was 13, Deva corrected her and claimed 15, Lucas did a double take. He was in jail for 15 years wasn't he? Knocks Anastasia/Carrie up goes to prison and doesn't know.

    She is totally his daughter. Drives it home even more that their daughter is healthy and the son she has with the husband has major health issues.

    Actually, I thought that was a given from the first episode. Perhaps I saw something that wasn't there but I really left the pilot believing she was his and he was well aware of it. Which of course explains why he has inserted himself in her life a couple of times.

    No more guessing. Carrie admitted. Brutal show last night. Maybe too much.

    Yeah, I might have to lose this show although I still really like it. It's just a little too brutal for my wife and with so much televised sports I've pretty much allotted all my free wifeless TV time. OTOH, that Amish girl Rebecca never shows up nude on my Suns telecast.
