Resident TV Addict: New Show - Rectify

3 replies • Last post

I fell in love with another TV show - this one from Sundance channel, but the first season is on Netflix. The show is called Rectify, and it is different from anything else I have seen on TV. Truly!

The fictional story revolves around Daniel, a man who confessed to raping murdering a 16 year old girl when he was 17 years old. He spent 19 years on death row, when he gets out on a technicality due to new DNA evidence. However, he is not completely cleared of the murder.

Don't go into the show expecting the theme to concentrate on the murder case, though. The story revolves around Daniel and his family, how his release impacts his family and how his release impacts him. He experiences the culture shock anyone who was locked away for twenty years would experience.

Also, do NOT expect a fast-moving show or action of any sort. This is a character study, and the show is slow-moving and mellow, but beautiful all the same. You can almost feel what Daniel must be feeling and how each family member is feeling and how Daniel's release changes those relationships.

Daniel is very "different," and of course emotionally stunted, but the show also makes the viewer wonder if Daniel wasn't that type before he entered prison or if prison is what made him the way he is. We don't have that answer yet - just hints.

The first season is now on Netflix - only six episodes. Season Two just started, and there will be 10 more episodes.

If you decide to check it out - let me know what you think.

You guys from states are pretty lucky i should admit, you always get great shows instantly when it appears, while i should wait about a week when our translators do their job and release show on russian Tongue 95% of all our shows/movies are so terrible, and in most cases it is stupid, not professional rip off from any show that was in USA something like 10 years ago...I think i need to learn english really good and enjoy shows at english, will be really great.

Yes I know several streaming sites for movies and TV but don't think they offer other languages. Movie 4k might, but I am not sure WHAT languages. I know cuz I clicked on one before that wasn't in english nor were the subtitles in english. We are spoiled when it comes to movies and TV, and I love it! Smile

belaff if you google "fansubs" you will probably be able to find subtitles for loads of shows that are done by fans of the shows themselves.
