Banshee is an American drama television series set in a small town in Pennsylvania Amish country and features an enigmatic ex-con posing as a murdered sheriff who imposes his own brand of justice while also cooking up plans that serve his own interests.
Banshee is a glossy Trash Gem with a Budget. One of my all time favourite Shows, because of the violence, the sex and the violence, the story and the violent characters, everything works just fine. I forgot to mention the brainless violence, just for the sake of violence. The show was fun to watch, from the first episode on to the Requiem. Great acting by all of the cast but foremost Ulrich Thomsen who gave me the creeps, not only once. Kai Proctor is the hateable character with a hardcore religious background and Kurt Bunker (an excellent Tom Pelphrey) is the likeable character with a Nazi/Rightwing background. See for yourself, it's so hilarious and surprising in parts. If you are into B-Movies, this is TV adding the gloss and the near perfect acting to stories we love.
