Conclusion: Don't let Banshee 's rough and tough exterior fool you. At least not too much. There's enough going on beneath all the gratuitous sex and violence to warrant the attention of action-starved TV junkies. Flawed as its first season can be, firm groundwork has been laid for its upcoming sophomore season. Here's hoping the series' showrunners are able to refine their established formula further and deliver an even more satisfying ten episodes in 2014.
Conclusion: Boy was I glad that this wasn't another vampire show! After I realized that was the case, 'Banshee' became pretty easy to enjoy. It's surprisingly effective in its storytelling even though it has to take time out for blatantly silly sex scenes which are there because, well, it's Cinemax folks. With some great video and extremely well done audio, 'Banshee' delivers. It's recommended viewing for sure.
