Popcorn & Coffee: Banshee: Season 4 Digital HD


Now available to purchase on Digital HD from HBODigitalHD.com is Banshee: Season 4, the final season of the hit Cinemax action/crime series.

The series centers on an ex-con (played by Antony Starr), who had spent the last fifteen-years in prison for apparently stealing $15 million in diamonds. Now as a free man, he sets out to locate his ex-lover Anastasia Rabitov (played by Ivana Miličević) as she was the one in possession of diamonds before he went to prison. Anastasia is now living in Banshee, Pennsylvania (Amish country) under the name Carrie Hopewell, where she married and raised two children during the last fifteen-years.

With a ruthless crime boss, Rabbit' Rabitov (played by Ben Cross), hot on his trail, he takes the identity of the Banshee's newly-appointed sheriff, Lucas Hood, who was killed in a bar fight. Though the town is part of the Amish country, there is plenty of murders & crimes to keep Lucas busy.

The official "Season 4" description:

This MAX action drama charts the final twists and turns that follow Lucas Hood, an ex-convict who assumed the identity of sheriff in the Amish-area town Banshee, where his former lover and partner-in-crime was living under her own alias, Carrie Hopewell. The final season takes place two years after Lucas gave up his badge after a bloody, multimillion-dollar heist at the Camp Genoa Marine Base which proved costly: Carrie's husband Gordon was killed, and Lucas's longtime computer-hacker partner, Job, was abducted by a shady criminal ring. After settling a score with a "recruiter" from Lucas's past whom he hoped would have intel on Job, Lucas went on a bender before being rescued by an unlikely savior, Proctor's niece.
Emerging from a self-imposed exile, Lucas returns to Banshee to find it a changed town. Brock Lotus is now sheriff, Kai Proctor is the mayor, and the old "Cadi" police station has been replaced by a state-of the-art facility. A new deputy with ties to Proctor, Nina Cruz, has joined Brock's team, along with Kurt Bunker, the skinhead-turned-deputy who continues to make amends for his dark past while fighting the racist overtures of the group led by his younger brother Calvin. After reuniting with Carrie, their daughter Deva, and ex-boxer Sugar Bates, Lucas becomes immersed in a new Banshee crisis: rooting out a vicious serial murderer whose latest victim is someone near and dear to his heart.

Final Thoughts: I only recently became a fan of Banshee by watching the first three seasons on DVD. When I first saw an advertisement for the series, I thought it was a supernatural show, but I only realized it was a crime drama until I started watching the first season. I missed out on the original broadcast of the final season, so naturally I was excited to hear that the fourth season would be made available on Digital HD so quickly.

Overall, I have enjoyed watching the Banshee: Season 4 Digital HD and I recommend the final season (and the entire series) to others.
