In Banshee, PA, it's a fine line that separates the cops from the crooks...especially when the town's sheriff is actually a master thief. From Alan Ball, the creator of 'True Blood,' comes Season 1 of this thrilling Cinemax action series that charts the twists and turns of Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), a recently paroled ex-con who assumes the identity of the town's new sheriff thanks to a bizarre twist of fate. In town to find his former partner and lover Carrie (Ivana Milicevic), whom he hasn't seen since a heist 15 years earlier, Hood settles into his role as lawman in a corrupt town controlled by Amish overlord Kai Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen)--even as his appetite for both crime and Carrie pulls him into a dangerous cauldron of duplicity. Ben Cross co-stars as a New York mobster they once ripped off who arrives on a mission of revenge.
|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoPilot||Series Premiere. In a bizarre twist of fate, a recently paroled master thief assumes the identity of Lucas Hood, sheriff-in-waiting of Banshee, PA--the same town where his former partner and lover, who changed her name to Carrie, relocated and remarried years ago. Keeping his history a secret as he awaits forged papers, Lucas befriends boxer-turned-bartender Sugar Bates, and settles into his new life as Banshee's sheriff. Itching for the thrill of thievery and yearning for Carrie, who is now the wife of attorney Gordon Hopewell and mother of two, Lucas inadvertently gets tangled up in the rampant corruption of shunned Amish gangster Kai Proctor, while keeping a vigilant eye out for Mr. Rabbit, the New York-based mob boss who wants revenge against Lucas and Carrie for the jewel heist that landed Lucas in prison. A party thrown by Proctor for the new sheriff is spoiled by a crasher--a member of the redneck Moody clan who despise Amish people in general and Kai in particular.||59:31||$2.99||View in iTunes|

A great show to watch after the kids are in bed!
This show has great writing, acting, action, drama, violence, sex, topics and story lines that we haven't seen before - especially in a hour long show. I just wish the season could be longer! My hope is for the series to keep on going, for the story lines to continue to be shocking, suspenseful and looking forward to the next episode.
This show gives Strike Back a run for its money.
You will be hooked by the end of "Meet the new boss".
Awesome show under the radar
It will get much more recondition now its been released on bluray and iTunes -- is a cross of strike back and justified - with full on late night Cinemax gratuitous violence and sex - plus a great story and tons of action
