‘Rectify’ Earns Its Critical Love Letters With Lyrical Finale (Spoilers)

13 August 2015 8:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At a time when more TV dramas feel like the great American novel, “Rectify” is something of a marvel, playing like a little haiku. Lyrical and hypnotic, the SundanceTV series concluded its six-episode third season Thursday, advancing the ball on a variety of fronts, with fractured relationships and new beginnings. While the plot was set in motion by a murder, the program is defined by its personal drama. Although series creator Ray McKinnon and his cast haven’t received enough accolades beyond love letters from critics, unlike the show’s fictional characters, they have nothing for which to atone.

It’s been a slow road to possible redemption for Daniel (Aden Young, simply splendid), who spent 19 years on death row for a rape and murder. Now, exoneration appears to be within his grasp, although the damage his time in prison inflicted on him suggests there might be no getting back »

Ray McKinnon, Abigail Spencer and Aden Young Preview the 'Rectify' Season 3 Finale, How and When the Show Might End

13 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Season 3 of "Rectify" has felt a lot like saying goodbye. After Daniel Holden's ordered banishment from his hometown of Paulie, the former inmate and his family have been forced to face the future. Daniel (Aden Young) has to decide where he's going to go and what he'll do when he gets there. Amantha (Abigail Spencer), his sister, has to figure out what her life will be like without Daniel at the center of it, and the show as a whole is honing in on who actually killed Hanna oh-so-many years ago. With all that in mind, "Rectify" isn't ending; at least, not yet. Showrunner Ray McKinnon has voiced his aims to end the series sooner rather than later, possibly within the next few years, but first fans are ready to savor the Season 3 finale. Airing Thursday night on SundanceTV, "The Source" will address many of the questions opened up throughout the first five episodes. »

True Detective, Ep. 2.06, “Church in Ruins” throws a party, and everyone’s invited

26 July 2015 8:54 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

True Detective, Season 2, Episode 6, “Church in Ruins”

Written by Nic Pizzolatto

Directed by Miguel Sapochnik

Airs Sundays at 9pm (Et) on HBO

The good news is that the so-called “orgy episode” of this season is not nearly as gratuitous and exploitative of women as it could have been in a worst case scenario. The bad news is that it is still pretty gratuitous and unnecessary once it is made clear what exactly the show is trying to accomplish throughout the party. Ani could have still been drugged, accosted, nearly killed, and then saved the day without dozens of female bodies gyrating in the background for no real reason other than that the show wants them to be there. The last quarter of “Church in Ruins”  is filled with moments of entertaining action and solid acting, but it is all undercut by the fact that the show can’t help itself »

"True Detective" Recap & Review: Season 2, Episode 6 "Church in Ruins"

26 July 2015 8:45 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Season two of "True Detective" has been an exercise in patience. Last week was a let down because it completely sidestepped dealing with the emotional state of the participants of the shootout. For a series that has always been just as interested in exploring the inner lives of its characters as it has been in solving a murder, it was a strange choice. Flashing forward 66 days but having no new information concerning the case may have been the biggest misstep of all. Of course the case would have to be shut down following such massive bloodshed, but the entire affair seems pointless if absolutely nothing was learned. Seeing Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams) going undercover at this point in the season seems like a tale of "too little too late", and for that reason, "Church In Ruins" finds itself awkwardly placed as the sixth episode in the season. Tipping off the final three hours of the season, »

True Detective, Ep. 2.05, “Other Lives”: Let ‘Er Rip, Let It Fly

20 July 2015 8:13 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

True Detective, Season 2, Episode 5, “Other Lives”

Written by Nic Pizzolatto

Directed by John Crowley

Airs Sundays at 9pm (Et) on HBO

The only truly frustrating part about “Other Lives” is that if the entire season to this point had been even a fraction as good, so many of the acting missteps and story misjudgments could have been more easily forgiven. Much of what works in this fifth installment of the season are things that could have been easily fixed before filming a second episode after the premiere, which is all the more infuriating now that things are even marginally smoothed out. This episode prioritizes the emotional journeys of the characters above everything else which places them on the background of the larger Vinci conspiracy instead of vice versa. If only this realization occurred to the show before midway through the season it could have salvaged so much of the muddled »

‘True Detective’ Recap: ’Other Lives’

19 July 2015 9:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With only a few more episodes to go in “True Detective” season two, here’s where “Other Lives” — which fast forwards through time after last week’s big shootout — leaves the four main characters:

Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell)

The man who raped Ray’s ex-wife, Alicia (Abigail Spencer), wasn’t actually killed like Ray believed. State Attorney Davis (Michael Hyatt) informs Ray they picked up someone whose DNA can be linked to the assault on Alicia (and on several others), and now he’s in jail.

The news disturbs Alicia, not because she’s upset that Ray didn’t avenge her attack, but because he told her he did, and in the process destroyed their relationship. The news also sends Ray straight to Frank (Vince Vaughn), looking for answers about who he really killed, and packing heat.

Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch)

He informs his trailer-trash mother (Lolita Davidovich) that he’s marrying his pregnant girlfriend. »

‘Rectify’ Season 3: Ray McKinnon On Why Six Episodes Is Just Right

9 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

SundanceTV’s “Rectify” has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal cult following over two seasons, and fans of the unique drama will be pleased to discover the first two episodes of season three are as strong as ever.

In the show’s timeline it’s only been a few weeks since Daniel Holden (Aden Young) was released from death row after almost two decades in prison, though the question of whether or not he killed his high school sweetheart remains up for debate. At the end of last season, he re-confessed to committing the crime, under pressure from the zealous politician (Michael O’Neill) who originally prosecuted him.

That turn of events has left his family, including mother Janet (J. Smith-Cameron) and sister Amantha (Abigail Spencer) reeling. While his antagonistic step-brother Teddy (Clayne Crawford), is deciding whether to press charges against Daniel for a separate assault — a matter complicated by »

The SundanceTV series Rectify is back for Season 3 (and has already been renewed for a fourth season, to air in 2016), as it follows the life of Daniel Holden (Aden Young) who must navigate what it means to establish his life again in his small hometown in Georgia, after serving 19 years on death row.

Smith Cameron) prepares for his looming banishment and his sister Amantha (Abigail Spencer) tries to build a life around something other than her brother’s innocence, until a body turns up that raises new and troubling questions about the night that everything changed.

Review: In praise of Sundance's miraculous drama 'Rectify' as it begins season 3

9 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

At one point in the third season of "Rectify," Amantha Holden is floundering her way through a team-building exercise at a management training seminar for her job. To help her out, the moderator suggests, "Why don't you tell us a story that only you can tell us?" Her story — about how older brother Daniel wound up on Death Row as a teenager, how she devoted her entire adult life to getting him released, succeeded through DNA evidence, and then saw him confess to the murder a second time to cut a plea deal, making her efforts and years into a joke — fits the letter of the suggestion, if not the spirit of the exercise, and it leaves the entire room speechless. "Rectify" itself doesn't exactly tell a story no one else on television could. Almost from the moment TV was born, the medium's been filled with stories of crimes, cops, »

SundanceTV renews 'Rectify' for Season 4 - Here Are 5 Reasons You Should Watch

8 July 2015 1:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On the eve of its third season premiere, SundanceTV has renewed "Rectify" for Season 4. With Season 3 premiering on Thursday (July 9) night, Season 4 will air in 2016 and, fittingly, SundanceTV said that an official episode count has yet to be announced, which makes sense for a show that has had six, 10 and six episodes in its first three seasons. "Even in an increasingly crowded field of dramas on television, ‘Rectify’ has established itself as something special," blurbs Charlie Collier, president of AMC and SundanceTV. "What Ray McKinnon, this incredible cast and everyone associated with the show have been able to achieve is remarkable, and we are so pleased to usher in this third season with an order for a fourth. ‘Rectify’ has had such a huge impact in establishing SundanceTV as a home for high-quality, intelligent drama. We are excited to continue this important partnership with Ray and the entire team." "Rectify »
