RECTIFY

Anyone watch? Slow but it kind of grows on you. Star is cute. Kind of a cross between Nathan Filion and a young Michael J. Fox.

No one is watching this show? It's quite good.

I'm confused about the episodes. Last week they showed a two-hour episode as the premiere. Presumably it was two one-hour episodes joined together. But then last night there were two episodes, both of which were marked as "new" by my cable guide and by the online guide I use. The description of the first of the two "new" episodes sounded exactly like the second half of the premiere double episode from last week. I recorded both of last night's showings but haven't had a chance to watch yet.

I know there are only six episodes in total, so have we seen three or four of them already?

I do too R3 and found only one was actually new. The other was one of the first two.

Interested to hear what you think.

by Anonymousreply 404/30/2013

Only three one-hour episodes have aired.

I'm liking it. Not as good as Top of the Lake (which, in my head, it's replacing), but still quite good. Great subject matter for a series, and good performances.

I think there are only six episodes total, so if there's going to be some plot -- which there's been little of, and I'm fine with it -- they better getting moving.

I keep wishing the mom was Linda Purl.

Aden Young is a new actor to me. His performance is so good, so understated and so perfect. He's also hot as hell.

by Anonymousreply 604/30/2013

Aden is really hot. He starred opposite Cate Blanchett in Hedda Gabbler when the Sydney Theater Company came to BAM a few years ago. He is a great actor

Renewed for a second season!

Good news! Thanks R8.

It's an incredible show. As a criminal defense lawyer, the attention to detail for prison life is so compelling-the confusion at the beginning when the guard gives Daniel some privacy to change into street clothes (by turning around)-probably the first time that has happened to Daniel in 19 years. And offering him a drink.

I've watched all 6 episodes (you can find them on the web)..Sad that I have to wait a whole year to see the next 10.

Top of the Lake was more of a six-hour* movie (in fact it premiered at Sundance as a whole six-hour showing), whereas Rectify is more of what we think of as a TV series.

I was in tears watching the pilot or Rectify, from start to finish.

*seven hours on US TV, to make room for commercials

Loving this show more every week. Aden is a gem. What a performance!!

by Anonymousreply 1205/07/2013

Watched the first hour when they showed it on AMC right after Mad Men. I have one episode left of Top Of The Lake to watch and then I am going to catch up on this show.

by Anonymousreply 1305/07/2013

I am mystified why no one seems to be watching this gem. It's really, really good and doesn't involve a major time investment.

just found it tonight - thankfully dvr'd the marathon. utterly engrossing, no famous famous, excellent cast.... loving it so far

I think Rectify is the best new show of the 2012/13 TV season.

[quote] the attention to detail for prison life is so compelling-the confusion at the beginning when the guard gives Daniel some privacy to change into street clothes (by turning around)-probably the first time that has happened to Daniel in 19 years. And offering him a drink.

That scene really caught my attention, especially following as it did the scene where the prison guard was strip searching the other prisoner while Daniel was in the holding cell. What a stark contrast when Daniel was treated with basic civility by the guard.

[quote] I am mystified why no one seems to be watching this gem. It's really, really good and doesn't involve a major time investment.

The show's pacing probably puts off a lot of viewers. There's none of Breaking Bad's badassery or The Walking Dead's zombie-killing action.

The critical consensus on this show was virtually unanimous. I don't know if that's enough to get it some Emmy attention which could help boost viewership.

Between this and Top of the Lake which I also liked a lot, I can't wait to see what else Sundance delivers in the future.

by Anonymousreply 1605/14/2013

Does anyone know if it got picked up for more episodes beyond the original six?

Aden Young and Sanaa Lathan need to do a movie together since they both share a name with a major city in Yemen.

by Anonymousreply 1705/14/2013

I watched the first 3 episodes On Demand but when I went to watch the remaining ones it said I had to buy them. WTF? Anyway, I like the lead character and hope he finds some happiness. The sister is kind of goofy, but I like her better than I did on Mad Men.

by Anonymousreply 1805/14/2013

Good show. Glad we will have more episodes.

by Anonymousreply 1905/21/2013

It's very good. Adelaide Clemens, the Australian actress who plays the half brother's religous wife, has a small part in the new version of THE GREAT GATSBY. She plays Catherine, Myrtle Wilson's (Isla Fisher) sister.

RECTIFY is slow and character driven. Not really plot driven. But it's really good. I understand it's renewed for a second season. 10 episodes.

by Anonymousreply 2005/21/2013

It definitely needs more episodes because they sure as hell didn't wrap up any storylines last night. And the black guy who got executed-- how short is he? He looked about a foot shorter than the guards who escorted him to his death.

One thing that bugged me all season: What the hell kind of name is AMANTHA?

by Anonymousreply 2105/22/2013

The ast episode left me with so many questions:

Did Daniel rape his step brother? Was that blood or shit or coffee in his anus ?

Was the guy on the lawn mower the real killer ?

Who was the gift for ?

Excellent cast.

by Anonymousreply 2205/23/2013

Looked like coffee to me also, R22 although that didn't make much sense.

Yes, and that gift...

by Anonymousreply 2305/23/2013

The gift is for the sister in law, isn't it?

I confess I missed some of the middle episodes. So is the lead guy guilty of the murder, or is it still a muddled mystery?

I go back & forth on stuff like this. I put up a front when critics inevitably fall all over themselves for series & movies about downtrodden people leading miserable lives who mumble to each other the whole time. But there is a lot of good stuff in this, I know.

by Anonymousreply 2405/23/2013

There are only 6 episodes, R24. Go back and watch. It's worth it. Aden Young is terrific.

I have no idea what this means.

by Anonymousreply 2505/23/2013

I don't believe Daniel raped Teddy. It was his (admittedly bizarre and illegal) way of teaching Teddy a lesson about how quickly things can happen that are beyond your control. And that was clearly coffee on Teddy. The camera even lingered at the turned over coffee can.

Too bad he has facial warts and a Judd Nelson nose.

by Anonymousreply 2705/24/2013

I only watched the first two episodes and didn't think it worthwhile to continue (especially since I dozed off at one point). There were some good moments, but other than that, I couldn't find any characters that I liked or cared enough to find out what happened to them.

by Anonymousreply 2805/24/2013

The pacing was SUPER slow. Not much happened during this season. He was released on the very first episode.

by Anonymousreply 2905/24/2013

Just watching on Netflix in Canada. It is quite good. Never heard of Aden before, and he's a Canadian actor. He's very cute, but also good in this.

I just watched the first episode and I know I'm going to love this show. It feels very much like an independent film.

by Anonymousreply 3306/15/2014

Season Two (ten more eps) starts this Thursday (6/19) on the Sundance Channel.

by Anonymousreply 3406/15/2014

Is anyone watching this show? I caught up on the first season and the first episode of season two and I'm hooked. It feels very authentic (and it's filmed not far from where I live).

by Anonymousreply 3506/22/2014

I am R35. It was renewed for season #3. It is THE best show on TV. I absolutely love it.

This scene is so amazing.

by Anonymousreply 3709/10/2014

Aden's so classically gorgeous, it feels like he walked straight out of the 50s. Those eyes are such an incredible bright blue. Younger, he practically looked like a Boticelli angel.

His story is that he got attacked by a bunch of very excited Hollywood producers after he starred in Black Robe as a teenager who were trying to make him into the next big thing. He in full seriousness turned it down and went home to Australia!!! Found Hollyweird too weird apparently. He's been giving great, soulful performances in Aus for 25 years.
