When it comes to under-the-radar TV shows that pack a punch, Banshee tops the list. Starring Antony Starr, known for his role in The Boys, this hidden gem has been hailed as the ‘most underrated’ TV show of all time.

With a gripping narrative and heart-pounding action, Banshee boasts an impressive 90 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes, alongside an 8.4 rating on IMDb.

Running from 2013 to 2016, Banshee spins the tale of an ex-convict who, upon his release, adopts the identity of a murdered sheriff in the small town of Banshee, Pennsylvania.

This thrilling premise sets the stage for a high-octane narrative where the protagonist, Lucas Wood, navigates his new life while dodging a menacing crime boss known as ‘Rabbit,’ portrayed by Ben Cross.

Check out the season 1 trailer:

Sarah Hughes from The Independent describes Banshee as “one of the best TV shows you’ve never seen,” praising its over-the-top plotlines and vividly drawn characters.

“This is pulp television at its best, a fast, furious blast of over-the-top plot lines, scenery-chewing villains and tightly shot action scenes,” she elaborates.

The show’s creators, Jonathan Tropper and David Schickler, have been praised for their skillful blending of pulp fiction elements into a gripping TV narrative.

Social media users are equally enthusiastic about Banshee.

One fan expresses admiration for Antony Starr's performance on Twitter (now known as X): “i don't know who needs to see this but banshee is the most underrated tv series of all time.”

Others recommend the show to fans of Starr’s work in The Boys, with one viewer commenting, “Banshee is the most underrated series of all time. No cap.”

The series has been compared to a blend of small-town crime drama and action-packed sequences reminiscent of John Wick.

I've seen it get some love from a few TV fans I know, but Banshee gets nowhere near enough attention.. Easily one of the best action series ever put out on the small screen,” a viewer shares.

Banshee is not just another action series; it is a well-crafted blend of intense drama, intricate characters, and meticulously choreographed action scenes.

Another fan notes, “Absolutely agree. Banshee was a phenomenal show and when Kurt gave his speech about “I am guys like that” I bawled. Great show, great cast and a show that stays in your mind forever.”

For UK viewers eager to experience this thrilling ride, all four seasons of Banshee are available on Now TV. Whether you're a fan of high-stakes drama, action, or simply looking for a show that has flown under the radar, Banshee is a must-watch series that deserves its due recognition.
