Haiku: Rectify, Season 4, Episodes 1 and 2

rectify_series_logo_svg-svg

If you’ve never heard of Rectify, it’s not too late to start.  It won’t take long to catch up, either — the first three seasons is 22 episodes altogether.  My favorite character is Amantha, played by Abigail Spencer, who now stars in the NBC show Timeless.  Somewhere in the second season, the showrunner realized her comic chops and she’s been killing it ever since, delivering her dry sarcasm like it’s no one’s business.

It’s a slow show, but the best kind of slow.  Even in the era of Peak TV, there just aren’t many series like this that takes time with its characters.  This fourth season will be its last and I’m already grieving the finale.
