I have talked, at length, about the new drama, “Rectify,” a six-episode series currently airing on Sundance, which was also recently renewed for a second season. I called it the Best New Drama of the year, and I stand by that. I want you to watch it. I want everyone to watch it, because it is amazing, and soulful, and heartbreaking.
But I understand the reality of the Internet. Sometimes, words just can’t do the heavy lifting that pictures can. If my enthusiasm and praise for “Rectify” hasn’t rubbed off yet, maybe I can encourage you to check the series out by appealing to your, uh, baser instincts.
Here’s a young Aiden Young (“Rectifiy’s” lead, Daniel Holden) in between a young Russell Crowe and Simon Baker.
Here’s Aiden Young from a movie called Shotgun Wedding.
Here’s Aiden Young looking like a Mainer.
Here’s Abigail Spencer, who plays Daniel Holden’s sister, Amantha, hanging out with Katee Sackhoff.
You may known Spencer from “Mad Men,” “Suits,” or “Burning Love.”
Clayne Crawfold plays Daniel’s step brother, Ted, Jr.. who is a clean-cut and smarmy, Southern douche.
You might know him from “24,” or “Jericho,” or as Lance from “Justified.”
He has remarkable range of facial hair.
Here’s Luke Kirby, who you may know from Take This Waltz with Michelle Williams.
He was also in the greatest Canadian television series of all time, “Slings and Arrows.”
He’s responsible for many a lady boner.
Finally, here’s Adelaide Clemens. She plays Tawney, who is Ted Jr.s’ wife, a straight-laced Christian woman who also may have a crush on Daniel.
You may have seen her recently in The Great Gatsby.
Here she is with Jon Snow in Silent Hill: Revelation.
She looks good with a gun, or in a dress.
How’d I do? You’re going to watch now, right? “Rectify” is on the Sundance channel, and re-airs on AMC after “Mad Men.”
