Banshee: Opening Credits Photo Descriptions for Not Actors Ever Released?

[ After I scanned MAXGO, Welcome to Banshee, Season 1 DVD Extras and Cinemax / HBO sites I found no information on photos for not actors. There must be a why, who, and what links the person to a photo. Example: Created by credits (frame by frame).  ]

[ We, rather, I am intrigued. ]

[Test Day] Embed Google+ Shared Post Containing Video

[ With all the speak-the-text technology a bot cannot read with emotion of a good narrator.  I can't say it any better than Lauren. ]

[ Embedded G+ post in all its simplicity. ]

[ Maybe, just maybe, "The Man" will leave this be. ]

Banshee: Carrie (Ivana Milicevic) Should be on - Top 10: Female Action Stars

[Top 10 Lists like this are pretty much the opinion of the maker. This list from 2 years ago by Watch Mojo is pretty good but dated. Naturally I have a different opinion of who belongs on the list and ranking; that will come later.  Number 10, Lucy Lawless - Xena Warrior Princess? Jeez are you 12yro.]

 [ The Current List by Watch Mojo
  1. Sigourney Weaver (IMDb)
  2. Uma Thurman (IMDb)
  3. Michelle Yeoh (Wikipedia)
  4. Angelina Jolie (IMDb)
  5. Linda Hamilton (IMDb)
  6. Milla Jovovich (Official)
  7. Kate Beckinsale (IMDb)
  8. Carrie-Anne Moss (IMDb)
  9. Michelle Rodriguez (Official)

The 10th of entry in this list is open, Lucy Lawless (Xena) moved to teen swoon area. Musical chairs I'm ADDING: Ivana Milicevic (IMDb) [Cinemax Banshee's Carrie Hopewell is not a soccer mom. Number 9 moves to 10. Number 3 moves 9. Numbers 4,5 move up one. Numbers 6,7 swap positions and move up one. Ivana Milicevic is inserted into Number 7.

New List the way I think it should be
  1. Sigourney Weaver (IMDb)
  2. Uma Thurman (IMDb)
  3. Angelina Jolie (IMDb)
  4. Linda Hamilton (IMDb)
  5. Kate Beckinsale (IMDb)
  6. Milla Jovovich (Official)
  7.  Ivana Milicevic (IMDb)  NEW
  8. Carrie-Anne Moss (IMDb)
  9. Michelle Yeoh (Wikipedia)
  10. Michelle Rodriguez (Official)
There it is -- #7 is hot stuff. ]

[ Carrie Hopewell 15 years ago - her man is in prison, she is knocked up, along comes Gordon and she sees a safe future for kids. ]

[Eleven years ago.]

[ Fast forward to today. Carrie has to put Rabbit down for endangering, well, everyone. ]

[ Good bye daddy.] ( Longer Unofficial Metalworks Video ) ]



[Carrie is not really a team player. Sometimes she makes exceptions.]

[ Just do what I do. ]

[Carrie is more than enough bad ass for a 7 slot. In season 1 -- 30 minute fight to the death when Rabbit's right hand man tried to stuff her in a car's trunk. Care to guess who died?]

[ Just in case there are doubts about Carrie's "Bad Ass Cred" here is clip where both female leads in the show take care of those foolish enough to cross them. Carrie, in prison, gets the n00b treatment from current "boss" and then .... ouch. At the same time Deputy Siobhan puts her abusive ex-husband away for good. Yippie kai yah ... Oops wrong quote. ]

[ Damn good action by the director. ]

[ (note: Some of the oddness of the playback is do to me dicking FR on purpose. I may replace clip with a normal one.)]

[Brought 2 U By] I'm Listening to Soviet Radio (Apologies to Stan Ridgway)

[ The one thing you can bet the farm on is adverting and sports have a symbiotic relationship. EVERY square inch of viewable space is covered in logos and posters. The talking heads who help us follow the game or race or activity spew Brought 2 U By on nearly every camera redirect.

I don't mind this kind of sponsorship, it's useful, until it sounds like a never ending interruption to, in this case, Sebring 12 Hour race. The veteran sports car guys on FOX's coverage are good guys that I have listened to for years. Today they sound like someone gave them a radio format from space; I could say "Alien Muddy Channel". I am picking on the suits not the on air talent. Got that?

[ Sometimes Boredom wins: Today I give you Soviet FOX sports]

Well, the quick break took forever ]

Banshee -- Season 1 & 2 -- Origins (@Cinemax)

Update: March 9, 2014 16:16 EDT (20:16Z) -- add: 17 track Banshee Soundtrack info. add: @cinemax MaxGo and DVD info. add: cryptic personal opinion or 2.

AND LASTLY - Thanks to all who have put together the best series on TV.  I have understood the show from the first episode; think about what that means; sometimes, somewhere, Real Life is a bit like an episode of Banshee. You don't want to know so don't ask me the obvious question. May my "spook" father RIP.
I was going to write a bunch of words about how the Origins helped characters. A character does something that seems out of context in the weekly episode. Your brain recoiled and WTFk is spoken loudly. The Origin clip provides context (we are the sum of our trip down the road of life). Shit!
Bunch of words!
--- Just follow Carrie's locket necklace (15 years ago).

[ How about 17 tracks of show tunes? Yes, please but what is it?

Has soundCloud player so you can check it out [opens new window]. Hollywood Reporter - Banshee Official Soundtrack (details & stream)

As for my opinion you can read Amazon comment I wrote [opens new window]. My review of Amazon MP3 album - Banshee (Music From The Cinemax® Original Series) [Explicit]

[How did Banshee "do it"? It isn't your fathers style of action series is it? Lucky you!
From a year ago -- just listen.


[ How about DVD info? When I get to it ]

[end is never the inception]
