Re: Banshee is hard, even for HBO.

I am reanimating this thread instead of starting a new one, as it is fit for purpose.

Just a reminder, for Americans Banshee returns tomorrow night, which means for me it returns Saturday morning with a nice cup of tea. Can't wait!

About to start watching the new episode. I'm gonna be disappointed if Lucas Hood doesn't hit someone within the first five minutes

Re: Banshee is hard, even for HBO.

Does Hitting that girl with his penis count?

Odd that it seems that Odette Annbelle is doing this and Two and Half Men simultaneously.

(Shooting dates are very different to air dates, but I get this feeling that Kutcher might ask for an introduction to the Banshee producers, so that he can out Die Hard Bruce and get Demi back... Although he did refrain from cameoing on Glee when he was dating Lea Michelle. Maybe in real life he's not so A.D.D.)

The armoured car robbery had some incredible stunt work.

Those interviews were hilarious and tense.

Poor little gangster's moll wants her family back.

I do like this show. Amazing how the criminal steps right into the lawman's shoes and nobody can tell.

Re: Banshee is hard, even for HBO.

There are 8 of those webisodes, as well as a first season I missed, how about you? And y'all should try to lock them down because one of them changes entirely how we should interpret this season.

Re: Banshee is hard, even for HBO.

I've always loved good Noir, so imagine my surprise when watching what I thought was typical procedural fare:

http://www.hbo.com/true-detective/talk/index.html#/

Until I saw this word written in the diary of the primary victim.

CARCOSA http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carcosa
More...
http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/01/12/tr...tive-premiere/
http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2014/...ings-tv-recap/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_King_in_Yellow

I think True Detective may have used this just as a throw-away--but if they really keep the tradition of Hastur--i.e. a dismal atmosphere, then even Banshee will pale in comparison.

On an unrelated subject, I also watched PBS's program on Salinger

Re: Banshee is hard, even for HBO.

I like where this is going.

I do question whether somebody as careful, smart and informed as Proctor would risk wounding the sheriff like this without delivering a knockout blow, but it should make for some good entertainment for the end of the season.

Re: Banshee is hard, even for HBO.

Proctor didn't know that that was Hood's son.

And to be fair, he isn't.

What really stood out for me recently was the sniper in the cornfield.

They're all crawling on their hands and knees at great velocity towards murdering each other.

It kinda looked like the 80s arcade game dig dug.



Fun times.

Re: Banshee is hard, even for HBO.

Shit just got real. I've been waiting to see Hood take down Proctor's psycho henchman in the suit for a long time, and things seem to be angling toward that confrontation happening soon. I have a feeling Proctor is going to go all Lethal Weapon 2 on the cops, though.

Good episode all around. It had a lot of humor in between the serious stuff, and we got to see some neo-Nazis get their asses kicked, which is always a plus.
