We finished the first season and started the second. There is no gap between the two. I like when shows literally pick up right where they left off.

I'm not sure. We are watching it "on demand" through our provider.

Do you need a Cinemax subscription, I presume to watch it on demand?

We've starting watching Banshee. I like the story line and that it's action packed. That was a crazy fight scene in Episode 3. The funny thing was that the crowd just stood and watched the entire "anything goes" fight scene. Too much lol. I do like the characters in Banshee. No one is annoying compared to Walking Dead annoying characters. I'm hooked on this one.

Just finished Season 1 of The Killing last night. I was really hoping to be able to stop after the first season, but now I feel inclined to keep going... Ugh tv shows suck out my soul and leave me with time for nothing...

We've got AT&T Uverse and to watch "premium channels" On Demand you do have to be subscribed to that specific movie channel. We're currently on a 3 month free preview for HBO/Cinemax. I'll promptly cancel once our free 90 days are over. Not sure about your TV set up in terms of service, but often you can get between 30 -90 days free for premium movie channels or packages. With On Demand services like they are now you can binge watch a lot of stuff during that time.

Yeah, there's a lot of fighting in the show. I'm glad they filled in the back story some to help the audience understand how and why he had to learn to fight and how he did it. In season 2 there's a good line where someone says "you don't fight like a small town sheriff"

I know I posted this before, but I just finished season 2 of Newsroom. What a great show. Incredible acting and writing; just a pleasure to watch. Also Mac is definitely my favorite character. The ensemble cast really feed off each other and that gives the show a synergistic feel in my opinion.

Thanks for the info. I looked at Banshee viewing options and opted out of paying $1.99 an episode. They (subscription movie channels) were smart regarding their channel specific programming. If it were not for things like Homeland, Game of thrones and a long list of shows before them, we would have dumped them a long time ago. With its wealth of TV programming, Netflix at $8 for streaming is a bargain.

They did a good job wrapping up the show and I must say it is one of my favorites as well. The writing was excellent and the characters were both believable and endearing. The banter, wit, and sarcasm were just so enjoyable.

I just finished finished watching BBC's "The Missing" and was trying to find a good, new show to watch over the break.

I've always wanted to watch this, but just never got around to it. I may start it up this weekend. A coworker also mention Banshee, but The Killing seems more like my thing.
