DVD & Blu-ray review: Banshee: Series 1 (18)
Various directors DVD/Blu-ray (500mins)
Friday 30 August 2013
Everyone's clearly having a blast on this outrageous HBO show. Antony Starr channels Martin Riggs and Jack Reacher as the former jewel thief who, after being released from prison, makes his way to the corrupt Wild West town of Banshee. He's there to seek out his former partner in crime and “true love” (Ivana Milicevic), but once there he assumes the identity of the new sheriff. A thrilling, absurd, graphic, hugely watchable drama with Ulrich Thomsen's terrifically evil Amish villain.
And why are 'southern' ways of speaking spreading north?
