Banshee... Skip to season 3?
The thought of getting caught up is daunting with everything else on tv... Is it worth skipping to the current season, which seems to have generated way more buzz?
S1 and S2 are definitely worth it.
Yeah, Season 3 is in the books now, I'd set up Banshee as a Friday night treat, and take it slow. Watch one every Friday night (or whatever your fun/movie night is)... I suspect that eventually you'll want to start watching them in sprints, haha. It took me 3-4 episodes, until the first really epic brawl in the casino, to get "hooked". Then I was watching 2-3 a night as time permits. I didn't intend to get caught up for season 3, since I knew we weren't doing anything "professional" with it, and then I got sucked in.

Whatever you do dont skip anything. It's not that kind of show. Really, don't.
You've gotta watch it all. It's too fun. I actually find myself looking at my phone or searching the internet while watching something heavy like the Wire but for some reason I catch myself rewinding scenes in Banshee just because they are so over the top hilariously extreme. Banshee and Strike Back are by far the most fun watching experience I think I have ever had out of any show...and I watch a lot of TV.
