Banshee: Season Three Thread (2015)

Not usually much to discuss on an individual episode basis...

Two episodes in, and it's just as entertaining as always. One of the fastest hours on TV. Reminds me of Justified in its approach to plot--move fast, and keep moving. I like how, even though there is often a season long arc (probably the big cash takedown this year?), each episode flies along. When a problem arises, they don't take 2-3 weeks to resolve it. Heck, it's usually done & gone by hour's end.

Love the addition of Chayton this year, he's a great bad guy. And the Colonel. I also like the dead chief's sister. Quiet danger there!

And now that crazy niece is moving more into operations...

I was disappointed Rebecca did not say anything to that obnoxious drug dealer before she killed him. Something like, "look scary now?" She's certainly well endowed in the crazy department, but she is lacking in the quip department.

Rebecca needs to start screwing that crazy military guy now that Carrie dumped him. He and Rebecca seem perfectly suited for each other.

I like Nola. But I've never much liked Carrie. So I'm not sure what to think about them apparently becoming friends.

I think everyone's afraid to say they like this show. My wife and I enjoy it together, but she won't let me recommend or even admit that we watch it. (I couldn't post this if she knew my TC handle.)

When the fight started, I knew somebody had to die; and I was in great pain because I didn't want to lose either of these two great characters. Nola, you should have had a long arc and created great jealousy and destruction this season before your glorious death. But sadly it was not to be. Our consolation is the most over-the-top fight yet in a series filled with over-the-top fights.

Rest in peace, dusky Indian native American maiden.

Not even gratuitous nudity before killing off Nola?

this show is slipping. I am outraged.

I don't think Odette Annable does nudity. Maybe that is why they killed her character off?

I just binge watched the opening 3 and the fight scene with Nola and Mr Burton was epic. The finishing move was something I don't believe that I have even seen done that graphically.

And, so my wife tells me, TV Guide is saying the next episode is even more over-the-top than this one. I find that hard to believe.

Banshee Renewed for Season 4

Cinemax has ordered a fourth, eight-episode season of the small-town crime drama.

Let the mayhem continue: Cinemax has ordered a fourth season of "Banshee."

The current third season has been perhaps the best yet for the pulpy action drama, which somehow had its craziest fight scene yet, as well as last week's wall-to-wall suspense episode, with the Banshee precinct under siege by Chayton's gang of Native American thugs. There are five more episodes in this season, with the next one due tomorrow night at 10.

Two notable changes were announced with this renewal: 1)The new season will have 8 episodes instead of 10, and 2)Production will relocate from North Carolina to Pittsburgh. Both these shifts should make the show cheaper to produce (Pittsburgh has various production tax incentives), and every bit helps when it comes to a niche show like this. And while the show has never really had filler episodes, I also don't know that it's seasonal arcs require 10 episodes to tell.

First, last night was an amazing episode. "You Can't Hide From the Dead". Just excellent from start to finish. And the heist was great, loved the body cam POV. Doom!

But I do have one little nit. Last week Hood had Chayton down on the ground, in his teepee, holding a gun to his head. The usual trope where you talk to your victim instead of just killing him. Then of course mayhem breaks out. Chayton escapes, Aimee has him in her sights, can't pull the trigger either, almost gets killed in exchange, yada yada.

So this week Aimee brings Chayton's location to Hood. Asks what he's going to do. "Finish what you couldn't" he says. But he couldn't either. Hood could have shot him point blank last week, but didn't. So I thought that was a bit petty on his part to say, after he did the exact same thing. [/nit]

Any chance the Colonel will know who pulled the heist? A face, or a voice?

And WTF was that horse lady thinking? While the neighbor deserved better, she got exactly what she had coming. (Ok, that's a little brutal, but my point stands--why TF didn't she go for help when he first collapsed? Stupid stupid stupid)

Line of the week:

Sugar: "Do you wanna know what I think?"
Job: "You know my answer to that question never changes."

I could watch a spinoff where Job & Sugar just exchange witticisms all day.

Hood was not just talking to Chayton. He was torturing him. I expect he was planning to kill him eventually, but he got interrupted.

I was surprised when Hood only stabbed him in the leg. Just before he stabbed him, I thought he was aiming for the groin...

If the Colonel does not at least know Carrie and Sugar were involved, then he is stupid as well as crazy. And from those two to Hood is a small step.

No no no, she CHOSE not to kill him. Hood was only prevented from killing him by a bad case of the tropes.

Just watched all three seasons over the last 4 weeks, it's a great show and I am so sad to have no more to watch.

I love that, in a 24 kind of way, the show can be full of plot holes but for some reason the style of the show makes them not matter. Chayton is one of the best bad guys I've seen in TV (as is Kai) and I'm sad he's gone.

Nola's departure was very odd to me, she was a building character who hadn't really done that much, I wonder if she got a new show or some other form of enforced reason for leaving ?

Sexist as it may be (we can include the men), I'd love a poll in regards to the hottest female on this show, even the bit part owner of the diner is hot

Now onto something else.

Ivana Milicevic for me on the gal side.

Geno Segers on the male side.
