Does Banshee have a genre?
To list some of the more wide and loose:
- Wikipedia: Action Drama, Crime Thriller
- IMDb: Action, Crime, Drama
- Rotten Tomatoes: Drama
For some reason it reminds me of a feel from some comic books like Agent X9, Punisher etc. that I regularly read growing up. Likely more to some of the side additions in series within the magazines. (And a touch of No country for old men (Scenery, perhaps in particular), Pulp Fiction (Mood perhaps) etc. in a somewhat loose mix. – These are personal floating connections ;P if you get what I mean.)
It is kind of a modern Wild-West with (anti)heroes, drama, action, sex, violence, etc.
I like the consistent feel one get with old Ford's, dust, shacks, raw ext–/interior and even though one have a super hacker the digitized world is kept at a arms length. One have a character unwrapping for some, (rather static personas), in line with character development with others – giving a interesting mix of the two.
My question is however if there is a more specific sub-genre on the series. (Beside the ones mentioned above.)
From comment and answer I realize my intention was lost. “Genre” was wrong word. I was more thinking of style, theme, (visual and otherwise), or something in that direction. Examples of “styles” in that regard is e.g. Dark City, Tron, Pi or Saving Private Ryan, Braveheart for that matter.
Anyhow; as it was asked as is I'll leave it.
