Anyone watching? We watched the first 3. The last hour was really dull. The actor is creepy but really effective in the role. It reminds me of Homeland that way. Jury still out on this one.

I haven't started on it yet, but I've read good things about it.

It has been renewed for a second season.

The creator of this, remember, is Ray McKinnon, who played Linc Potter on Sons of Anarchy and Rev. Smith on Deadwood.

Aden Young -- Daniel Holden
Abigail Spencer -- Amantha Holden
J. Smith-Cameron -- Janet Talbot
Adelaide Clemens -- Tawney Talbot
Clayne Crawford -- Ted Talbot Jr.
Luke Kirby -- Jon Stern

Love Michael O'Neill as the villainous senator, and it's fun to see creator Ray McKinnon's Deadwood co-star Sean Bridgers as one of the murder suspects (and then W. Earl Brown as the 'Goat Man' in Episode 5)...

Enjoyed this a lot. I didn't think any of the episodes were dull.

Several unanswered questions in the finale... What did Daniel wrap up in the Christmas paper, and did he mean to leave it for Amantha in the back seat of the car? What did Daniel buy at the book store, and for whom? (Tawney, presumably) Did Teddy REALLY take the coffee grounds he woke up with around his ass, and put it back in the container? Ew.

Glad there will be a second season... definitely an unsatisfying ending if there wasn't going to be more...

Ha, got you there, Dax! I read it somewhere, but have to say she looked familiar. But then I couldn't place her from TB....

Rectify made me nostalgic enough to play some early-90s Sega Genesis Sonic the Hedgehog...

I didn't pick it up when it started but today, there is a marathon. I missed the first episode and may try to catch it again.

I actually really like it. I enjoy the slow pace. I feel like I know these people. Very good cast.

This show is very thoughtful and depressing. I didn't think it would get renewed. Off to a good start.
