I just watched the first 1.5 episodes. I've liked it a lot so far. I've been disappointed with Prime original content lately, but this seems to be as good as anything put out by Netflix or HBO.

Bumping this one because I just finished it as well. I thought it was great. I was a little disappointed in the level of violence - I think some of you guys oversold it. The Homelander character was possibly my favorite among all the shows that I've watched in the recent past.

I'll go against the grain a bit. I watched it and thought it was okay, but it didn't wow me. Maybe I've been oversaturated on super hero stuff.

What's it about?
A man is released from prison after serving 15 years for stealing $15 million in diamonds on behalf of his employer, a Ukrainian mob boss named Rabbit. He and his former lover and accomplice, Rabbit's daughter Anastasia (Ana), had already decided to keep the loot for themselves. Anastasia got away with the diamonds and Rabbit is after the man, thinking he will lead him to his daughter and the diamonds. The man flees to the small fictional Pennsylvanian town of Banshee, where Ana has been living under the alias of Carrie Hopewell, mother of two and wife of the DA. Lucas Hood, the new sheriff, arrives in a bar at the entrance to the town and is immediately killed when he intervenes in a dispute between local criminals and the bar owner. The man takes Hood's identity and has to impersonate the sheriff and deal with ex-Amish crime lord Kai Proctor, sort things out with "Carrie" and get his share of the diamonds while evading Rabbit.[3][4]

Season 1 focuses on Hood's attempts to restore his relationship with Carrie under the looming threat of Rabbit finding them. Hood completely disregards the law while clashing with Proctor and pursuing his often criminal activities, alienating his own deputies. Rabbit eventually tracks him down and Hood surrenders to spare Carrie. Carrie leads some criminal accomplices and the deputies in a raid to free Hood and shoots Rabbit.

Season 2 deals with tribal chief Alex Longshadow's attempt to build a casino on the reservation which places Sheriff Hood in the middle of a violent struggle between Longshadow and Proctor. Carrie must face up to her past when she is imprisoned for her part in the raid against her father. With Carrie trying to fix her marriage, Hood enters into a relationship with his deputy Siobhan.[5] He must deal with the real Hood's son when he comes to Banshee looking for his father.[6] Hood and Carrie are forced to track down and confront Rabbit and settle things once and for all when they learn he survived being shot.[7]

I also loved it.
I’m also enjoying The Umbrella Academy, recommended by Matt.

Banshee was an awesome show. The fighting was some of the most hard hitting stuff I've seen in years when it was on the air.

I just started watching it. I'm three episodes in (the one where he fights the MMA guy) and it's fucking great. Homelander is really good in it.

Ohhh shit! I watched The Boys and then jumped into Banshee after the recommendation by Dave. Never put together that Hood is Homelander! Love Banshee it’s great. Only problem is Netflix only has seasons 1 and 2. I’m too cheap to
