Conceptually speaking I find Banshee rewarding. Lucas Hood is drawn as a complex character whose initial motivation strictly lies in survival and reconnecting with his former lady love and partner whom he took the fall for 15 years earlier by allowing himself to be captured by the police thereby facilitating her escape (with the proceeds of their recent score). Lucas saw opportunity in assuming the identity of the sheriff but strictly as a means to an end. What he didn’t expect was his adoption of the people in Banshee as well as the discovery that he had a knack for his new “job”. His particular skill set along with an approach that would be deemed overtly unorthodox for a town sheriff makes for an interesting mix that places him in a rotating love/hate relationship with his staff as well as in the crosshairs of the local crime boss, Kai Proctor who makes for a worthy adversary who makes no bones about his agenda or willingness to squash those that may stand in his way.
