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.
