“You haven’t given this a chance!”
Sundance’s beautiful and meditative Rectify was reduced to its original 6 episode season this year, which is not a bad thing at all. The showrunners have proven before that they know how to make the most out of very little. It’s a philosophy the show’s characters seem to share with them. Still, something has changed in the dynamics of TV’s sweetest, broken little family.
The consequences of Daniel Holden’s actions in the season 2 finale are felt throughout this third season, by all of his family and friends. As it turns out, Daniel (Aden Young) is most involved when he’s not present. More than ever, the relationship between Teddy Jr. and Amantha is explored, and even Ted Sr. gets to speak his mind about the uncomfortable new situation.
Even in its third season, Rectify remains as beautiful as ever, as it finds the small, thought-provoking details in the lives of its characters. Though it still moves at its usual slow pace, it’s always a pleasure to watch and never fails to satisfy.
