My throbbing show, I love you so

RECTIFY isn't for everybody The pace is slow, there's little action...

But I do love that little show and I'm so glad it exists, and that it has so many Deadwood alumni!

"Sleeping Giants" was another fine installment, even though Daniel took the backseat again, and even more than in the first episode. The Amantha scenes were well done (and gorgeously filmed), I love the way the Ted Jr/Tawney marriage is written, and Teddy, who wasn't very likeable in season 1 (besides he had one of those faces you want to punch) and might still be an asshole, is quickly becoming my favourite character -- I should call it the Pete Campbell syndrome!



There are all so human in all their strength, flaws, weaknesses, pettiness and lightness.

RECTIFY is a show about the throbbing human heart.

I bought S1 on your rec. D hated it. But I'm going to watch it alone and then see how I feel about S2. I was hooked by the end of the first episode.

RECTIFY is a show that I want to fiercely protect and help through the ordeals of television business!

It's turning me into a mix of Amantha and Tawney...

Also, when I watch it I can't help thinking of Deadwood and of Reverend Smith's storyline. It makes sense that the man who played the ailing minister also created RECTIFY.

You have only seen the first episode of S1?

Yeah. I've got some alone time this week and it's on my list.

Ohoh!

I look forward to seeing your reaction to a certain storyline involving a Deadwood alumn, towards the end of S1...
