    Default Rectify on Sundance Channel

    Anyone else watching this? We liked the mood of it, to start with, and it stars a couple of actors I love. Now, after the 4th episode, we are hooked. It's getting very creepy and subtly shocking.

    The show tells the tale of a fellow who is released from death row, has the verdict vacated, because of new DNA evidence. After being in solitary for 20 years, he finds a whole new town and society around him. He lives on the edge, psychologically, and one can't quite tell if everything he experiences is real or not. Nor can you tell if he is innocent of the original murder or not. The DA is determined to retry him without the DNA.

    The acting is fantastic. The tension that the town is dying, economically, is always lurking. I like the fact that there are no cheap shots about the South in it (one of the reasons I quit watching Justified.) Religion is one angle of many in this town and isn't treated dismissively. It's from the same producers as Breaking Bad, so the local environment is just as important as in BB and beautifully filmed.

    It's really good.

    Are they gonna show this on AMC, as well? I have heard it is excellent.

    I think it's on the AMC schedule. Thursday nights maybe? Yeah, it's very good. After last weeks episode, my husband and I can't stop talking about what might happen next. It was pretty jolting.

    Thank you for this. I don't think I'd have found or watched it otherwise. His acclimation is poignant.
