Brutal TV Scenes

To celebrate the release of new show Banshee, available to own and watch instantly via blinkbox and out on DVD & Blu-ray on 2 September, we take a look at the most brutal scenes to be scripted into HBO’s cinematic TV shows.



GAME OF THRONES – Rains of Castamere
Game of Thrones is one of the most successful shows that HBO has ever produced, principally for its in-depth storyline and bloodcurdling violence. In the episode Rains of Catamere, audiences witnessed a complete onslaught of blood and gore that culminated in the horribly graphic Red Wedding. The amiable Starks were massacred in animalistic, devastatingly brutal scenes. Throats were slits, eyes were gouged and women were stabbed – all while dying direwolves howled in the pouring rain.

BANSHEE – Prison Flashback
Banshee is one of HBO’s latest incarnations, and boy is it an explosive action series that will leave audiences stunned. The story traces a recently paroled master thief, Lucas Hood, who assumes the identity of the Sheriff of Banshee. When a former fellow inmate recognises Lucas from his time in prison, this interaction prompts Lucas to have a series of flashbacks.

It’s revealed that when in prison, Lucas had to fend off the advances and sexual harassment of a gay Albino inmate. Lucas had to regularly thwart the Albino from sexually abusing him and was once nearly killed in the process. During one confrontation, in front of the entire prison population, Lucas defeated the Albino by severing his penis and gouging the Albino’s eyeballs, finally killing the brute.

BOARDWALK EMPIRE – Death of Jimmy Darmody
Charming Jimmy was a fan favourite in Boardwalk Empire and served as Nucky’s talented protégé. However, once Jimmy fell out with conspiring mobster, Nucky, the prospect of his death was on the cards. Jimmy himself eerily predicted Nucky’s callousness when he said that Nucky can’t be ‘half a gangster’. When Nucky chillingly invited Jimmy to a late night reconciliatory meeting at the war memorial, Jimmy’s bloody epitaph may as well have been engraved. Nucky cruelly murdered his one-time protégé, with the fateful shot ringing out in the night’s sky.

SOPRANO’S – Killing Christopher Moltisanti
Mob boss Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) brought a new lease of life to TV. Soprano’s revealed that it was possible to create a cinematic character driven series and Paul Gandolfini personified this in his larger-than-life powerful screen presence. Christopher Moltisanti (Michael Imperioli) depicted the role of the aspiring mobster, who Tony adopted as his contemporary. However, it was not all plain sailing for Christopher in the gangster realm, particularly when he became addicted to intravenous drugs. When Christopher crashed a car, which had Tony in the passenger seat, it materialised that the young gangster was high on heroin. Tony, infuriated with Christopher who put the don’s life in danger, was more worried about his own driving license. As the glaze-eyed addict choked on his own blood, Tony placed a meaty hand over Christopher’s nose and mouth. The harrowing moment concluded with the two mobsters locking eyes as Christopher silently died.

TRUE BLOOD – Sam kills Rosalyn
The phenomenal world depicted in True Blood is premised on the notion that vampires are living among us and need to feed on humans to survive. True Blood also boasts one of the most creative, horrifically gruesome deaths on TV and so it’s unsurprising that shape shifting (inhabiting another body) is the method in question here. In one particular scene, the barman Sam transformed into a spy and flew into Rosalyn’s mouth, who is a politician. Once inside Rosalyn’s body, Sam shifted back to his usual frame, causing her to explode in a splatter of blood and guts. As Rosalyn’s remains scattered across the screen, the amalgamation of CGI and visual effects appears truly outstanding.

Top 10 Sheriffs

Sheriffs have made a come back, ruling our television screens once again with those cowboy hats we all love.

These supposed ‘voices of the people’ embody all of the things we look for in entertainment. We are a world obsessed with action, violence, and all too sweet karma; a concoction that is always guaranteed with every star-shaped badge. To commemorate the release of Banshee, available to own and watch instantly via blinkbox and out on DVD and Blu-Ray on 2nd September, ‘the small town with big secrets’, we are paying homage to the 10 Sheriffs on TV that really dish out the justice – or perpetuate the corruption.

EUREKA: Jack Carter
The everyman of Sheriff’s, Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson) from Eureka is not the sharpest kid on the block, despite his IQ of 111, as his town is full of geniuses. However, time and time again it’s his simplicity and instinct that saves the day. It’s always a glorious moment when normality overrules the supernatural. You have to love him!

BANSHEE: Lucas Hood
Ex-con and thief extraordinaire, Lucas Hood (Antony Starr) from Banshee is the epitome of the good bad guy. Adopting the identity of a dead Sheriff and embracing his dodgy past and criminal values, Hood certainly make for an interesting, if not compelling, Sheriff. His unique take on law enforcement, coupled with his charismatic swagger, sets him up as a Sheriff to watch – literally!

TRUE BLOOD: Eric Northman
Memorable for being more than just immortal, Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård) from True Blood is the handsome, albeit 1,100 years old, Sheriff of a vampire district in Louisiana. An integral part of vampire politics and steamy lover to waitress Sookie, Northman provides love, sex and violence to our screens weekly. What more could you want?

VERONICA MARS: Don Lamb
An ineffectual bureaucrat, Sheriff Don Lamb (Michael Muhney) from Veronica Mars is the ultimate ‘love to hate’ character. He is exactly what’s wrong with the judiciary system: status hungry and egocentric. Corruption, undermining and witty banter are his major traits, and we love it!

LONGMIRE: Walt Longmire
We can all relate to Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) from Longmire in his feelings of solitude and his overly self-judging ways. He is the archetype of the traditional Sheriff as well as an emblem of justice and duty – a figure of inspiration.

THE WALKING DEAD: Rick Grimes
A zombie-fighting Sheriff just says it all! Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) from The Walking Dead really does ‘protect and serve’ as he tries to shield the ones he loves from the living dead that has swamped the world around him. He is the upstanding Sheriff in the middle of utter chaos.

THE DUKES OF HAZZARD: Sheriff Rosco P Coltrane
Corrupt but loveable, Sheriff Rosco P Coltrane (James Best) from The Dukes of Hazzard provides much comedic value. His awkward and child-like characteristics add a bit of fun to the representation of the Law – finally a bit of light relief!

TWIN PEAKS: Harry Truman
Sharing his name with the 33rd president of the United States of America, Harry Truman (Michael Ontkean) from Twin Peaks is a true Western hero in his dedication to honesty and the Law. Whilst at times he is the Dr Watson to Sherlock Holmes, this Sheriff is down to earth and quite frankly knows how to sport a cowboy hat.

THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW: Andy Taylor
Relaxed, efficient and full of moral fibre, Andy Taylor (Andy Griffith) from The Andy Griffith Show is definitively ‘old-school’. Taylor’s quick-witted banter paired with his deputies’ clumsiness provides us with a traditional Sheriff, full of family fun.

ONCE UPON A TIME: Graham Humbert
Graham Humbert (Jamie Dornan) from Once Upon A Time, is literally the fairy tale equivalent of law enforcement. He defies the wishes of the Evil Queen, acts like the Knight in shining armour and in doing so becomes enslaved. Graham is a true martyr to the Sheriff cause.
