Didn't see a thread for this show, but I can't be the only one watching it...

It's INCREDIBLY ridiculous and far-fetched but it can be fun at times... Anyone else???

I've been enjoying it. Still need to watch the last episode. It's not groundbreaking by any means, but it's good, dirty, fun TV.

glad to see I'm not the only one...

I like the show, but it seems insane that this guy can basically do whatever he wants and no one even bats an eye.

A bit enjoyable but not a great show. Cinemax did hit it out of the park with Hunted though.

I'll have to check out Hunted. Was that the show that premiered some time last year?

Latest episode was pretty good. Glad to see more back story. I still don't see how Hood can keep this up though for very much longer.

I liked the premiere, but I feel like a S1 rewatch is in order... or at least a detailed recap of each episode. I feel like I can't remember some of the things that I should.

Well, I mean basically you can describe the events of season 1 in a few sentences.

Unnamed con man/thief comes to town, a fight breaks out in Sugar's bar, new guy takes over Hood's identity. With his new found role, he has to juggle between finding Ana/diamonds, and keeping up with the con he's pulling on the whole town.

Proctor tries to get Hood in his pocket, but doesn't work, the back and forth between these guys through the season was pretty good, and violent towards the end. Proctor runs his own shady business and has at least some of the local Native American's in his pocket, until the old Chief dies, and the new Chief decides he won't allow Proctor to run things any longer. The new Chief's sister comes to town, who happens to be one of the better looking girls on TV at the moment, and also a badass.

Hood is still running jobs, at least one that we were shown, but he talks about doing others. Job finally comes to town and reluctantly helps Hood, and later Ana joins in on the fun, along with Sugar.

Rabbit (Ana's dad) gets into town, along with an old acquaintance of Hood/Ana (don't remember his name). A bunch of violence ensues, people die, Ana and the Ukrainian dude have an epic fight, Ana wins.

Season wraps up with the FBI finding the body of the real Hood, Proctor deciding that he wants to get back at the new Chief by blowing up their new casino while in mid construction, and killing the Mayor by accident. Rabbit escapes at the last minute after all of his crew is killed. Ana is now pretty much part of the crew, along with Job and Sugar.


Thanks. That synopsis should help. It just seemed like when I was talking to you before about this show, I was missing some stuff. It's not the most complex show, so I'm sure as this season progresses, everything will fall in place. I just watch way to much stuff and hardly ever binge watch anything (I watch a lot of stuff as it airs) so it's difficult sometimes when shows take a full year to come back.

I wouldn't say the first season had any "filler" episodes, but a lot of the episodes revolved around the bad buy of the week type situation. The biker gang, the MMA dude, etc. None of those things had to do with the overall plot, it's almost as if there are stories within the overall story, which is kind of cool since I don't know of other shows doing this.

Yeah. I think that's part of the reason that I feel like I am forgetting things. The parts I remember are the MMA guy, the bikers, etc... which aren't all that central to the plot, but still fun/great episodes.

Anything with Job is fucking fantastic as well. Especially now that he seems to have dropped the whole cross dressing thing.
I thought the crossdressing thing was kinda of interesting - Set the character apart from most other similar TV characters #nohomo

...but I agree Job is great.

It hasn't been said within the show, but I THINK he only did it to run that salon, and he is gay, so it's not like he was dressing that way just to do it. Once he got to Banshee, though, he went somewhat normal for some reason. I love the relationship he and Sugar have, though. There was a joke in an earlier episode where Sugar says "I ain't got any of this little umbrellas", when Job asked for a drink. Then in this last episode, you see a little umbrella in Job's drink, he picks it up and tosses it and gives Sugar a dirty look. I lol'd.

I wouldn't have caught that, but that's pretty good. The rapport they have is pretty great. Sugar is a great character too.

If anything, I don't like Ana, the driving segment was really cheesy.
Yeah, I mean a lot of the show is kind of cheesy but it's usually fun. I thought the driving scene was ridiculous but at the same time it was entertaining (Hood just having to go back and grab another bag or two; the car flipping around at the last second)

Ana is probably the weakest character, but I don't particularly mind her.

It waaaaas awesome. I fucking love the way they shoot this damn show. Fucking and fighting, that's what it's all about.
Hahaha. It's a lot of fun. I just remember stumbling across this show on accident when it first premiered. I watched the pilot and I was like "Holy shit that was awesome. I can't wait for more of this" and it's kept up its reputation.
