"UPDATE: ▪️A premise that’ll quickly hook you ▪️Endless #plottwists▪️ Incredible, well-developed characters ▪️ High #action ▪️A ridiculous amount of #violence … blood, guts, guns, fists (and every other weapon imaginable), and a serious amount of sex … All of it, constantly on repeat 🔁 ▪️Not to mention: All kinds of mobsters, crime lords & kingpins (Ukrainian ones, Native American ones, twisted & incestuous ex-Amish ones), Neo-Nazi skinheads, drag queens, drug dealers, FBI agents, scary prison inmates (a super-ripped gay albino), priests, strippers, motorcycle gangs, a humongous, hulked-out, 400-lb. prize-fighting Native American gang member, a fight club owner, MMA fighters, a corrupt marine colonel, a hitman, a black ops agent, a serial killer, a sassy cross-dressing computer hacker with some of the wittiest insults & putdowns (a favorite character!), a gorgeous Ukrainian female whose fighting skills rival La Femme Nikita’s (another favorite character!), a friendly retired former boxer & ex-con, a small band of local law enforcement (including a tough, beautiful female deputy), and ONE BADASS FAKE SHERIFF!! ▪️Yep, a whole lot happens in the tiny town of Banshee, PA!!! 😅 … The characters & bloody fight scenes are waaaay over the top & get almost cartoonish by seasons 3 & 4, but, still, I couldn’t look away… ▪️The fake sheriff who defeats & annihilates all the bad guys has incredibly much closer to 90 lives than nine lives, but as ridiculous as this all sounds, the first two seasons of this show are extremely & insanely entertaining!! 🙌🏽 ▪️S3 was okay, but I didn’t much care for S4 (too many hardcore, sadistic freaks…. I only watched S4 to see how it all wraps up). #bingeworthy #action #crime #drama #mystery #thriller Thanks to @Tracey_Newhouse for recommending this one to me! 🙌🏽 Antony Starr is so good in this one! 🤩 And you’re right, it’s got a little bit of everything & great plot twists! 👍🏾 "
"Probably one of my all time favorite series, ranked right up there with The Sopranos and Sons of Anarchy. The amount of crazy **** that happens in this show is insane. It gets better and better with each season. Warning ⚠️: It gets pretty violent at times, so may not be for everyone... But I'm all for it. Highly recommended. 10/10"
"Where has this show been all these years? How did I not know Homelander was a badass before he was Homelander? Halfway through the 1st season and loving it. Violence, sex, great characters, um.....more violence, lol! If the remaining of the show continues to be this satisfying, I may have a contender for a new favorite show in my top 5 of all time...maybe top 3 if it gets exponentially better. 👍👍👍"
