Banshee is one of my favorite random shows. Insanely violent. Good heist scenes. Had it all. 

And yeah, why would you stop? It’s only 3 or 4 total seasons!

Noticed HBO Max added Banshee a few weeks ago. Old Cinemax show from 2014-2016. I started watching it last week. I like it. It has a very Justified vibe to it, only add in more cursing, more blood, and a lot of tits. 

Also, noticed the guy that plays Homelander in the Boys is the main character. 


I loved Banshee. It was over-the-top as hell, but that was part of its charm. Implausible as hell, but wildly entertaining.

It was seven years ago so I don’t remember exactly why. Season 4 dropped in 2016 so I’m guessing I watched all that had been released and forgot about it after that.

I’m getting ready to watch the series finale of Friday Night Lights. Clear eyes, full hearts...

Looks like I started it back on July 19th according to this thread. Five seasons in 8ish months. I don’t make a good binge watcher. But it’s been a really great show.

Oh yeah. I'm near the end of season 2.  There are several times I just laughed and said no way, but this is awesome. It is like an R rated version of Justified.

I've been watching "Resident Alien".  Took an episode or two to get into, but I'm really enjoying the offbeat, deadpan humor.

The end of Season 3 and into Season 4 go hard science fiction at the end. Season 4 was fine, but the most recent season, 5, was awesome. Season 4 and Season 5 is where Amazon picked it up and it shows in the budget and dialogue.

Just finished Farscape.  First two seasons are rough on cinematography and effects, but it definitely scratched that Stargate itch (and not just because the two leads later joined SG1 in its last few seasons).

Continuing on my Syfy kick.  Might do Firefly because it's only one season, and then probably BSG.

Im halfway through Warrior in HBO Max. Very Banshee feel to it, for those that watched Banshee. I think the creator has a producer/writer/some role on Warrior.

Yeah, I meant SG1.  Did a re-watch last year, and it's held up.  Did not enjoy SG Atlantis nearly as much on re-watch.  SGU wasn't very good, and canceled prematurely.

Anyway, Amazon just bought the franchise and apparently the show creator has been trying to get a new series for years.  Also, Ben Browder (Cam Mitchell) is shopping a series involving Cam Mitchell and as much of the old band as will agree.  Fingers crossed, but good luck with that.

Been watching Loki.  Pretty good.  I'm a Marvel fanboy, so it goes without saying.

Also been watching "Kevin Can F*** Himself" on AMC.  Really cool concept.  Pretty dark and and a comedy mixed together.

Not sure if you know, but the spinoff is going to be on IMDBtv. Not everyone is going to be in it, but decent amount of the cast has signed on. Same creator.

I started watching Clarkson's Farm on Amazon. I never watched any of his car shows, but I'm enjoying the farming show.
