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.)

Geez, just when I said I liked Nola, then they kill her off!

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.

Last week was only under the wheels, so I'm looking forward to over the top!
