This action drama follows Lucas Hood, an ex-convict who improbably becomes sheriff of a rural, Amish-area town while searching for a woman he last saw 15 years ago, when he gave himself up to police to let her escape after a jewel heist. Living in Banshee under an assumed name, Carrie Hopewell is now married with kids and is trying to keep a low profile. Lucas not only tries to rekindle things with Carrie but has to deal with a town riddled with drugs, gambling and corruption.

The story/writing is definitely creative. An evil narcissistic ostracized former Mennonite who owns the town. An ex-con with a sheriff position that falls into his lap... and he: Pulls. It. Off. Far fetched? Absolutely. Violent? Yup. Gratuitous sex? Uh-huh. Will I continue on to Season Two? You betcha.

It is just more about sex than anything else.

Extreme, graphic violence and obscenity.

An interesting story. The smartness comes shining through. Negative is the parade of sex scenes, soft-porn variety, whose noisiness is exceeded only by their unconvincingness and violence. the story, littered with intriguingly repellent characters, like Kai Proctorlocal evil tycoon, grows ever more enticing. Lots of tension.

Too many flashbacks and an unbelievable plot, but it holds your interest. Very graphic violence, if that is a concern.

If you like constant gratuitous violence and graphic sex then this is for you. The best thing I can say about it is that the library did not waste too much money by buying more than 8 copies.

Cinemax's latest brutally violent action/adventure TV series is very action packed,but also deeply racist towards 2 of the 12 Tribes Of Israel aka people of color only.Usually the deeply racist executive producer Alan Ball makes sure a black male represents the rainbow flag.In this series,it's an Asian dude this time that looks like their half black actually.Plus,this first season makes the black male as one of the cops looks so weak with his aim on his pistol in some very intense shootouts.Even the Asian fruitcake is more accurate and viciously defensive in one of these intense shootouts along with 2 Hyper-Masculine females with very accurate and deadly aim.I hope season 2 doesn't emasculate people of color in uniform like this one does,but i digress.

Its dark, unrealistic and very violent but somehow if you can get past that it makes a compelling show. I particulary like the lead actor and Hoon Lee's character is hilarious.
