I seriously need to know Hoon Lee aka Job is THE SCHITTTTT!!!! Seriously it doesn't get anymore bad arse than him. He's brilliant, REAL, & loves Lucas like a brother trying his hardest to keep him out of trouble!!!! I live for Banshee!!! It's honestly the best show on television that you're NOT yet watching!!! & Job is a HUGE part of that!!! I pray we get to see more of Job this season & his interactions with Lucas!!!


This show is perfect. Thinking of everything from the post-credits bonus scene to these awesome mini-episodes complete with the original cast and production value. Love it
