Like something out of Texas Chainsaw

Lots of really good TV these days and it is hard to pick the best show.

OK, I lied. Not that hard. Banshee.

In prior reviews of individual episodes, I pointed out that the two guys behind this show do not merely "break the mold" they break it before anyone else in the industry even gets a chance to use it.

And they are still at it. Doing things with cinematography, music, flashbacks, pretty ladies, and violence that no one else dares.

The opening scene in this episode was one of the most shocking ever aired on mainstream TV.

The scene in the backwoods makes Texas Chainsaw Massacre looking like an ad for a fast food outlet.

The current game in Hollywood is to see who can mesmerize and bedazzle the viewer more than any other show. Banshee has the "burden of setting the bar" for this much like the character in this episode had the burden of beauty.

And no else comes close.
