Philosophising about the 'S'-word: Watch… and learn

Banshee

the-series-philosopher-banshee-wikiBanshee is an American drama television series created by Jonathan Tropper and David Schickler which originally appeared on the Cinemax network beginning on January 11, 2013. The series is set in a small town in Pennsylvania Amish country and features an enigmatic ex-con who has assumed the identity of a murdered sheriff. He imposes his own brand of justice while also cooking up plans that serve his own interests.

Banshee takes place in the fictional small town of Banshee, Pennsylvania. After serving 15 years in prison for stealing diamonds from a Ukrainian gangster called Rabbit (Ben Cross, Dark Shadows), the unnamed protagonist (Antony Starr, Mercy Peak, Outrageous Fortune) travels to Banshee to find his heist accomplice and former lover, Anastasia (Ivana Miličević, Dark Shadows, Chuck). When he finds her, the protagonist learns that she is now a married mother of two living under the assumed identity of Carrie Hopewell. Later, when the incoming Sheriff is killed, the protagonist takes on his identity as Lucas Hood, becoming the town’s new Sheriff. Banshee sees Hood struggle with adapting to his new identity while dealing with the machinations of local crime lord Kai Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen), and remaining hidden from Rabbit.
