Critic Reviews for Rectify Season 2

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (14)

Rectify isn't a whodunit, and that frees it up to explore all kinds of big questions about redemption, forgiveness, the double-edged sword that is freedom, the reach of maternal love, the subjectivities of time, and the purpose of religious belief.

We're often accustomed to programs that leap forward through large chunks of time but Rectify is a methodical piece about conversations and moments more than a sprawling narrative.

Few shows are so grounded. And, if you have a little patience, few shows are so worth watching.

The show that returns tonight is better than ever; its slowness and care strike me as even more distinctive and refreshing than they were a year ago.

An extremely ungenerous feeling came over me as I watched the first three episodes of the second. It was that itch of impatience you get when you would like someone to get over something horrible already, but only because you, anyway, are exhausted by it.

The joy of last season's discovery has given way to a hope that Rectify's continued strong performances won't be snuffed out by a steady downbeat of characters' lives further unraveling.

It will be interesting to see what Rectify does with an extended ten-episode season, but if the first three are any indication, it will continue to be a profoundly engrossing character study, brimming with lyrical beauty.

This wonderful, resonant show clearly has a deep belief in the power of redemption and connection. If you don't believe me, see for yourself. Please.

There is nothing else on television quite like it, and for those who have the patience to sit through Daniel's still, slow journey, the emotional rewards are enormous.

Rectify [is] a show willing to make us wait: for action, for answers, for the revealing of character at the speed of actual life.
