After 19 years on Georgia's death row, DNA evidence gets Daniel Holden released. He's survived by reading books and meditation (doing time by escaping time), and he's ill-prepared for life on the outside: he's diffident, self-contained, nearly catatonic. His sister, especially, and his mother have stuck by him. He meets new family (his mother is remarried, his new step-brother is wary that Daniel will take his job at the family tire store). Can Daniel adjust? His prosecutor, now a state senator, stays in the news by insisting on Daniel's guilt, and the senator has an ally in the local sheriff. George and Trey meet in secret in the woods. Later, there's gunplay. Written by <>

The role of Daniel was originally written for Walton Goggins, who turned it down. See more »


On the way to the prison, when Janet says that Ted Jr. is calling, Amantha jokes, "Does he want to stop at 7-Eleven for a Ding Dong?" 7-Eleven does not have any locations in Georgia, so it's unlikely that would be the store on her mind when cracking the joke. See more »

Better Than "Breaking Bad" (which I loved)
22 September 2015 | by taratree123See all my reviews

This is one of the TV best series I have ever watched. I have seen some good ones lately--even a few great ones (House of Cards, Spiral, Mad Men) however Rectify takes the biggest prize--for its excellent story, genius acting, great directing, beautiful cinematography, and powerful (and clever) writing. I love ensemble casts and the cast of Rectify is put together with great integrity--the acting and character chemistry is sheer magic!

Kudos to everyone who had a part in this excellent series that explores the very difficult subject of long term incarceration and a politicized judicial system. Aden Young is superb as Daniel Holden! You won't be disappointed.
