Banshee is a brilliantly thought out dramatic crime series with a little something for everyone, crime, action, sex you name it, and is a great believable story line and plot set in the Amish town of Banshee, Pennsylvania on Cinemax TV which aired in 2013.
Actor Antony Starr, who assumes the identity of Lucas Hood, the town's murdered sheriff, to hide from powerful crime lord Rabbit played by Ben Cross, his partners father, goes on the rampage as he attempts to restore all he has lost, during a 15 year sentence, fights against unforeseen forces
Starr plays an ex con recently released after his vengeful father in law sets out to destroy him and goes in search of his pre sentence partner Anastasia played by Ivana Miličević, but in doing so enters a whole world of hurt.
What transpires as Hood attempts to reclaim his life is an Orgy of sex, violence and crime as the reformed criminal fights to become a better person than the one that recently left prison.
Taking on the Amish mafia boss and local kingpin Kai Proctor played by Ulrich Thomsen, Hood enters a dark and dangerous world of intimidation, violence and crime which he is all too familiar with.
Hood doesn't waste a second in establishing his authority as sheriff and immediately sets his sights on taking down those most powerful elements in the community, while building a network of loyal associates that will help him achieve his ultimate goals.
Banshee is a refreshing take on what can be achieved if one man chooses to turn his life around and fight the powers that be with the help of some rather technologically knowledgealbe friends.
A great underdog story or modern times.

From Presearch: Banshee Synopsis
Banshee is a highly entertaining series, that seems to create an enticing atmosphere that draws you seamlessly into the storyline, the narration and character
performances are executed superbly in a manner that is quite convincing, so much so that you find yourself empathetic of Hoods endeavours as he attempts to turn his back on crime and stop others using criminal means to impact the community he has now vowed to protect.
A really enjoyable watch for anyone that like the crime drama and action genres, definitely not a series you will forget easily.
A banshee is a female spirit in Irish folklore who heralds the death of a family member, usually by wailing, shrieking, or keening. Her name is connected to the mythologically important tumuli or "mounds" that dot the Irish countryside, which are known as síde in Old Irish.
