10/10: It's the time between the seconds
Saturday, August 16, 2014

I discovered this on Netflix and knew nothing about it when I began watching it. It is a brilliant piece of television. The story is gripping and this caliber of work is very rare. The writing is the best you'll find and the cast is powerful. This is not a chest thumping, triumphant, primal scream of a story. This is a walk through fear, uncertainty, and madness, that is at times almost too painful to watch. But you will watch it. I've read a few reviews here and one stood out for its criticism of the pace of the action and the "laconic" depiction of the lead character played by Aden Young. To that critique I would offer this: Daniel, who at the age of 18 was sent to death row for rape and murder, is now free after 19 years. In the second episode of season 1 he is describing his time there, and what was "real...

10/10: Aden Young is mesmerising in this thoughtful compelling show about how a crime affects a family and community
Saturday, April 20, 2013

This is a review for the first 3 episodes of Rectify.The recently concluded and utterly superb Top of the Lake has a partner well in crime in the form of Rectify. Like Top of the Lake, Rectify is magnificently acted and directed and both concern how crime can affect a community. Rectify deals with an issue I have been fascinated with for some time and that is people being wrongly accused of a crime and sent to prison. Only instead of showing us the legal wrangles the family and lawyer would have to go through Rectify picks up when Daniel Holden (Aden Young) is released after new DNA evidence throws his case out. Daniel has served 19 years on Death Row for rape and murder and now has to adjust to coming up and living with his family again.One of the genius things about the show is whilst the evidence gets Daniel out of jail it doesn't...

10/10: 10/10 All the Way
Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Well, after the first episode of watching Aden Young embody the character of Daniel Holden, I'm hooked. Daniel Holden was arrested for the rape and murder of his girlfriend at the age of 16, convicted and sent to live on death row at the age of 18, and 20 years later after living on death row in a cell by himself, preparing himself to die and be forever gone from this earth, has survived 5 stays of execution long enough for technology to catch up with forensic science and, unbelievably, Daniel Holden is released to his family because it is determined that his DNA was not found at the scene of the crime. So now the big question is: Will the current prosecutor re-try a 20 year old case? The whole town has an opinion, and while Daniel Holden walks around like a man in his own dream, quietly and painfully processing freedom, relating to a family that...

10/10: Unique, haunting and just a great show all around
Monday, February 13, 2017

Greetings from Lithuania."Rectify" is definitely one of the most unique, meditative, amazingly acted and written series I've ever seen, and i saw more, more then a few actually. What got me hooked for the series in a first place back in 2013 was its premise and that it was "from creators of Braking Bad". After seeing it all, i can safely say it is a moons away from "Breaking Bad" for a couple of things - "Breaking Bad" was better show overall but the most important thing of how different it is from "BB" on its core. The main character is nothing like Walter White, opposite he approaches life, even knowing of how unfair it was to him gently in a first place. "Rectify" is definitely is a show like i haven't seen it before. It is very slow paced drama down to its core - there is no action, no thrills. Basically what we see is an aftermath...

8/10: Best new drama of 2013
Tuesday, May 7, 2013

This is un doutably the best new drama of 2013, I know the year isn't even half over as yet, but I really doubt any other show can beat this, in fact I'm not even sure if returning series could compete with this.In 6 episodes this show manages to take you to a depth which a lot of others fail to achieve in their entire run. The show is just so amazingly well done that 1 is almost tempted to label it as "flawless", although I understand that that might be a bit much.Right from the 1st episode you realise that each scene, each dialogue and each silence, is pregnant with meaning, a meaning that slowly takes you deeper into this word and these characters. Most of the episodes are written by creator Ray McKinnon and that in itself is win situation in my book, whenever you have a show runner that's also handling the...
