Rectify can be both hypnotic and heart-wrenching for viewers who have invested in these characters throughout the first two seasons.
The boldest new injection comes via flashback, a consistently and effectively utilized path into Daniel's headspace.
Thursday's premiere is very good indeed -- picking up days, even hours, after Daniel's plea.
There's enough to the central plot to make for engrossing drama, but Rectify's true power comes from the smaller character moments and its mesmerizing dialogue.
The continuing murder case provides some plot drive, but Rectify's main investigation is spiritual: into forgiveness, grace, the holiness of moments in a finite life.
Anchoring everything is Young's remarkable work in the lead role, playing a man whose impassive demeanor only occasionally hints at his inner turmoil, illustrated in part through the judicious use of flashbacks to his time in prison.
You have to love Daniel's dry humor, whether or not it's always intentional. That's just one of the qualities that makes it easy to forget he has a violent side.
Season 3 keeps Rectify as compelling and challenging as summer TV usually gets.
No series uses quiet to suggest the turbulent depths of unsettled lives with more effectiveness than the subtly affecting and powerful human drama Rectify.
Dang it, Teddy. Just when I want to hit you I want to hug you.
The final scene makes me question what is otherwise the finest season premiere Rectify has done.
Audience Reviews for Rectify: Season 3
May 15, 2020Emotionally exhausting. The acting, especially Aden Young is superb. One of the best shows I've ever seen.
Dec 03, 2018The life of Daniel and those in his life for better or for worse just keeps moving forward. Breaking our hearts on the way in a way which makes me want more.
Dec 30, 2016Perhaps the most richly-drawn and complex characters you'll find in a show.
Jun 04, 2016A wonderful drama that develops characters that are complicated and real.
May 18, 2016Best show ever. Have watched all three seasons three or four times.
Dec 17, 2015Absolutely beautiful. Amazing acting and solid writing. Wonderful use of subtlety and empty space. A perfect example of a show that allows for a complexity of human emotion, and doesn't spoonfeed us a point of view. Admittedly, I'm a very critical tv watcher, and there's not a whole lot of tv out there that I enjoy these days. For this series, I am truly grateful.
Oct 25, 2015What a disturbing and thought-provoking series, so wonderfully acted! Upon finishing the third season, I just feel sad and unsatisfied. I hate lo leave these truer than life characters who have been haunting me for days!
Sep 25, 2015Fantastic, haunting series. Aden Young makes it compelling viewing.
Sep 21, 2015Challenging in the best ways. Deeply felt acting and writing that rewards you with purpose in viewing.
