Rectify

Rectify

  • I highly recommend this. One of the best shows I have ever seen and it now has all four seasons available on Netflix Details. It was originally a Sundance TV creation.

    Just a deep drama and character development type of show that keeps you on edge the entire time.

  • I watched it all and really liked it. Sometimes it's slow where you just watch people living their lives, but overall enjoyable.

  • Really depressing show really.
    Acting is outstanding, story is really a downer. The step brother is one real m-fer

    Did you watch all four seasons? The step brother (Teddy) was one of myfavorite characters. I thought the writers did a great job of turning him into a likable guy by show's end after starting off as someone you wanted to punch in the nuts. He clearly grew up -- even to the point of becoming a bit of a sympathetic character.

    That is probably what I liked about the show the most -- the character development. That, and the lingering "whodunnit" question helps during the slow periods. The hypnotism is also pretty realistic rather than the usual stupid portrayal of it inmovies and TV.

    I also thought the relationship with the parents was good stuff.

    I thought they did a good job of showing what it would be like for someone in Daniel's shoes trying to assimilate back into society.



  • Yup.
    Watched it. Didn't care for the ending but it provided some closure.
    Acting was outstanding.
    It was an odd show but I appreciated it.
    I actually started a thread about his show a while back - but no one watched it - lol

    Missed your original post about it. Great show although I have noticed a trend lately of Netflix originals going to shit. This was a Sundance original but the Netflix originals are starting to resemble Hollyweird.


  • Netflix has some different shows.
    Marvel ones are outstanding
    Stranger things was lights out.
    But they seem to have this liking for those supernatural/mystical/sci fi types.
    Hated oA, hated it.
    Loved sens8
    Then the show with time travel with will from will and grace was really cool.
    I like Netflix show as a whole.
    Hulu has some too.
