A stunning and carefully crafted story, superbly and respectfully acted/directed by a relatively little known cast together with a sublime visual feast. I truly believe this is at the peak of television even with such competition in this so called golden age of the craft. a slow burn certainly which appeals to me between episodes of GOT for example. this should be the water cooler subject of the moment and deserves much more love. a truly emotional, at times even heartbreaking journey but one with much to love.

2 episodes in and I have to say I'm pretty damn impressed. This show's charm lies in its slow and methodical approach and also its absolutely stunning visual. Granted not many people would be hooked because this show seems purposely set in real time while also in slow motion. But goddamnit it works. People should at least try to see the pilot. It's pretty damn good. P.S.: Aden Young is fantastic - his portrayal as a distorted man is on point, at certain moments very serene, but also brutally dark when provoked. Very praise worthy performance.

Just made my fave shows library. Excellently done. The acting, direction, the story, the whole tone of the show. It's heavy stuff and has a slow pace, but at a level that is not too overwhelming. Definitely one of the great dramas on TV today.

Now i've managed to see the finale and say goodbye to one of the best shows i've ever lived through, i can gather my thoughts: I said lived through and i really mean it, as I saw myself in Amantha a lot of times and wished for more of her strength and heroism. Amantha's role in the show always resembled a strong link that binds the story together. One thing was perfectly highlighted this season, is the clinically depressed mother and how it was affecting her children all along and how they can never unburden themselves from it. Another thing worth mentioning here is the soft jokes that slipped in this season and drew a smile on our faces without any forcing. All in all, we leave the characters at a good place despite all the hurt they've endured and all the subtle farewells in their last lines. So Farewell Rectify i hope TV will create something like you one day.

Great show.

Great, slow-burn series about a man readjusting to life after spending 20 years in prison. With visuals often reminding of Malicks style it's certainly unique next to the other shows airing.

What an amazing TV Series. The cast is amazing. We enjoyed this a lot.

"Niente di quanto è successo può essere rettificato (rectified)". L'ingiusta condanna di Daniel, quella mezza vita rubata, non si cancella: il lato crime della serie può anche essere risolto, ma non c'è sentenza che guarisca un'anima.

I watched 2 episodes, nothing kept me wanting to watch more and it soon became a distant memory and ended after 4 seasons. No plan to continue it, it seemed quite depressing.

@kizzh Well said. Love this show :-)
