Rectify: Season 4 (The Final Season)

What to say about Rectify after all these seasons? Certainly it continues to be a sleeper hit. Thanks to SundanceTV, it made it through four glorious seasons. Rectify certainly isn’t a series for everyone. It can be hard to watch. It’s neither light nor escapist. Rectify pulls you in with  atmosphere, despair, and outstanding acting. Nothing goes unexamined. Eventually everything is spoken but most of the time it is what is left unsaid that fuels Rectify‘s excellence. This final season in particular, the mood is more ensemble. We see each character making the first apprehensive steps towards life post-Daniel’s incarceration. The cast is outstanding. Not a weak performance in the bunch. Thank you Aden Young, Abigail Spencer, J. Smith-Cameron, Adelaide Clemens, Clayne Crawford, Luke Kirby, Jake Austin Walker, J.D. Evermore, and Bruce McKinnon for four excellent years. Rectify is the kind of show you sit back, watch a scene and then catch your breath wondering what just happened? How did they create beauty out of so much sorrow? This is my kind of intense television show. Congrats to creator Ray McKinnon, the cast and crew for a spectacular look into the destruction and collateral damage of a wrongful conviction. 5 out of 5.
