    Anyone looking for some over the top TV entertainment after the end of Spartacus should check out Banshee. The violence is brutal, the nudity frequent, and the plot is entertainingly silly and fast paced.

    Oh, and it has Amish gangsters.

    Yeah, soft porn, lots of ultra-violence, and complicated back stories. It's ok, but very trashy in a similar vein to Alan Ball's True Blood. It's almost a non-supernatural spiritual successor.

    They even have a gay dude who's almost an exact rip-off of Lafayette.

    Could have sworn there was already a thread on this, but it's excellent stylish trashy entertainment. I loved it.

    I thought it was great fun. I particular liked the ex Amish bad guy. Saying that all the cast are good with the possible exception of the gay guy who does come across as Lafayette V.2

    I enjoyed Banshee but I got really sick of all time spent on sex scenes and who was screwing who. I really do not see the fascination with showing all that crap in so much detail and so regularly. It's just boring...

    It's a Cinemax series so it has to have the rumpy pumpy, it's the law or something.

    The more scenes of that nature with Rebecca in is fine with me anyway. Oh my.

    The show is really rather good though.

    Just started watching this last week. 2 episodes to go of season 1. It certainly is brutal in parts.

    The fight he has with the mma fighter was pretty violent and this was heavily topped by his prison fight with the Albino guy.

    Fucking hell there's a bit of rumpy-pumpy in this show. In episode 4, one woman diddles herself in the bath while thinking of the main character, then demands her husband bang her to relieve her frustration. She then goes to the main character's house, presumably for more sex, only to find that he has just finished rodgering a woman whose husband he killed. Even Spartacus wasn't quite this randy.

    It amazes me that (midway through s2 at least) nobody seems to have picked up that Hood doesn't appear to know anything about policework. He just does whatever he wants, and nobody really cares aside from a bit of grumbling.

    Really liking the show btw. It's like a trashier version of Justified.

    This has to be one of the silliest series ever made, I love it. It's like the long big punch up from the Fast Show.

    God damn, was the fight through the vintage Rolls Royce the bloodiest yet?

    Just seen the first episode of this. A trannie, a dirty backroom fumble and a double decker bus skidding along the road sideways, all in the first 4 minutes.
    Then it dies down a little until three men are dead, some lady has enjoyed cunnilingus very loudly and a bloke gets shot next to a pool.

    An office might have exploded at some point, I'm not sure.

    Looking forward to ep 2.

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    Just bought the blu ray of this. Read some reviews and Google imaged the lead actress.
    Bought.

    Our anti-hero seems to have the healing powers of the Wolverine. Ffter that MMA fight left him with a buggered hand, ribs and an eye that looked like Sauron's, I thouhgt he'd be a bit rough the next day. Nope.

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    Wow. Couple of amazing episodes, and now we get a great homage to Assault on Precinct 13. This show just keeps on giving.

    Just about to start watching season 3.
    The first two were great.
    The fights scenes were brutal.
