    There's a hole in my head where I have no regrets. Prestigious

    Final season starts tonight. Such a fun, underrated show. Hopefully it goes out with a bang.

    I need to get back on board with this show. I think I made it through S2, but still need to watch S3.

    I'm sure the final season will be nuts.

    One of the best shows on TV! It will be missed, but I'm glad that they're trying to end things on a high note.

    There's nothing worse than a TV show that continues past its expiration date. The last few seasons of Dexter--I'm looking at you.

    we've seen the shadow of the axe before Prestigious

    This show absolutely gets better with each season, not unlike Black Sails.

    It sucks that this is the last season, but no doubt they are going to go out with a bang.

    What sucks even worse is I have no idea when I'll even be able to watch this new season. Not until I get a new computer anyhow. I've been looking forward to the premiere tonight for months.

    I watched the pilot a few years ago and just didn't go back to it because I didn't have Cinemax. Now that it's on Amazon Prime, I can check it out this weekend.

    Oh boy, you're in for a real treat! I wish I could erase my memory and watch the first three seasons again with fresh eyes.

    Is is comparable to any other series?

    My favorite shows over the past few years have been Breaking Bad, The Leftovers, and Justified.

    I can't compare it to anything really. It's a high action show with tons of sex and nudity (in the first season), but the characters will keep you watching. All of them are memorable and fully fleshed out. I think you'll like it if you enjoyed Breking Bad and The Leftovers. Banshee is completely different, but all of them have their fair share of "what the fuck" moments.

    It's definitely worth watching.

    So pumped this is a back. Not the best start to the season, but interested to see where it is gonna go. I believe this season is shortened, but not completely sure. Sad to see it leave, because its definitely the show I look forward to watching more than any other on any network.

    I hated last night's episode. Felt like a Twin Peaks ripoff or something. The mystery isn't interesting, Job deserves more attention than Rebbeca.

    I'm rewatching it now, but it feels choppy. Not sure I love the time jump. Scared they can't find a new baddie as good as those in the past.

    added Cinemax through Sling TV and this is a series I'm excited to watch

    I liked the season premiere, but they might shoot themselves in the foot with the whole murder mystery thing. It's usually hard to make it work.

    If Young Metro Don't Trust You... Prestigious

    Yeah, it just feels so forced, almost like the show did a genre hop. I hope it's quickly dropped.

    I'm afraid it will drag on whole season. Still excited though, Banshee helps to fill the void left by Justified.

    You're probably right, but I hope we get some more crazy action sequences and crazy villains, the racist dude/cop's brother is kinda boring.

    This is my design

    I have a feeling the whole mystery aspect will play a larger role. Just not sure how yet.

    There better be more than Nazi bro bro
     
  21. dash64

    This is my design

    But which Nazi bro will win?
     
  22. Jusscali

    A(RI)P.net Prestigious

    I love cop Nazi, but as this is the last season I don't think that whole story line was given the opportunity to be completed or handled correctly. They are just a sidebar to the bigger picture and I wish they'd just go away for now.
     
  23. dash64

    This is my design

    Agreed. I don't mind him as a side character but to give him a prominent storyline in the last 8 episodes....

    I still haven't decided if I like Proctor as Mayor yet or not.

    Proctor as mayor seems really convenient for the writers.

    What would the incentive for him to become Mayor anyhow? Wasn't the whole point that he was de facto Mayor regardless of his official title in town? Seems redundant and unnecessary.
