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.
