S3: Gets the pace and length right, delivering more in plot but not losing the inflection that makes it what it is
1 July 2017 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

Rectify is a show I appreciate, and I use that word on purpose. I don't love it, I don't rave about it, and I don't quite rate it to the same extent as the critics do. However, it is admirable in what it does, how it tries to do it, and the quality and patience it has in all aspects of its delivery. The second season pushed me a bit with just how slow it was, and perhaps I was not alone in that feeling because the third season is noticeable in how different it is in some ways. The most obvious of these is that the season is significantly fewer episodes – 6 in all. On top of this it brings in more movement in regard to the main narrative thread surrounding Daniel, and the suicide of George that feels like it happened ages ago.

These things don't fundamentally change the show though, and it keeps that rewarding sense of being slower and giving the characters time to be real people, and not just figures in a crime drama. In this way they continue to be well written and engaging; I think it is not a change this season so much as me just investing in them, but I did feel more connected to their struggles, and more aware of their nuances. The production standards and performances continue to be of a high standard, and match/set the general tone of the show. Even the moments of fantasy or imagination tend to be a bit more functional than in previous seasons, and there is a greater connection to moving things along. Perhaps others look down on this season for that – but being honest, after a slow second season, I did appreciate it being a bit sharper on its feet.

Rectify remains the responsible, slow, and rewarding experience that I have found it to be so far; the tighter running time, and increased touches of narrative movements don't detract from that, but rather make it that little bit better and more accessible.
