Globe TV critic Matthew Gilbert chatted with readers Friday on Boston.com. Here are excerpts.
Q. Do you like “Rectify”?
A. YES! It’s the new Sundance series about a guy who gets off of Death Row after 19 years, thanks to DNA evidence. But he’s not exonerated, so people in his family and his small hometown still wonder if he’s guilty. It’s from the producers of “Breaking Bad,” and it has the same deliberate (i.e. slowish) pace. The show is flawed at points, but it takes on a lot of really compelling ideas about guilt and loneliness and fear and what freedom means. Sundance has already renewed it for a second round. The first season is six episodes, which is just right. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
