Thursday TV: Rectify Finale, Simpsons Marathon

Rectify

The upcoming fall season will be lucky to generate even a fraction as many hits as this unusually busy TV summer produced, a list of keepers that includes Outlander, The Strain, The Knick, The Last Ship, Undateable, to name just a few. (Even something as underwhelming as AMC's Halt and Catch Fire, which didn't, has been renewed by its increasingly desperate network, and I'm hoping for good news about the future of WGN America's Manhattan and WE's The Divide.)

Thursday Review: SundanceTV's The Honorable Woman and Rectify

Maggie Gyllenhaal

If SundanceTV's The Honorable Woman were any timelier in its geopolitical drama, most specifically of the Israeli-Palestinian variety, it would bleed newsprint. But it's the emotional intricacies of this rewardingly complex and brilliantly acted eight-part miniseries (Thursdays, 10/9c) that resonate timelessly, grounded by Maggie Gyllenhaal's impassioned, extraordinary performance as the title character, idealistic Anglo-Israeli philanthropist and newly appointed Baroness Nessa Stein.

Gyllenhaal brings layers upon layers of crisp elegance, prideful steel, profound sorrow and ultimately an aching vulnerability to Nessa. We share her angry despair as her lofty goals — most notably, wiring the West Bank in a lucrative but controversial contract for high-speed Internet as part of her family foundation's crusade for reconciliation — are steadily shattered by shady compromises and sinister secrets stemming from her mysterious abduction in Gaza eight years earlier.

Critic's Notebook: Summer TV Comings and Goings

Tatiana Maslany

Forget the old Rodgers & Hammerstein song about June. TV is busting out all over, and what a remarkable week it has been. Starting with HBO's Game of Thrones wrapping another astounding season last Sunday — this run of episodes blessed by being able to dramatize so many, though not all, of the climactic events of book 3, A Storm of Swords, the best in George R.R. Martin's "Song of Ice & Fire" series — ending with a... read more

Our top moments of the week:

12. Worst He Said, He Said: On The Bachelorette, the group's resident instigator J.J. tells Marquel that when he received the rose on the very first night, Andrew whispered to him that Andi kept the two "blackies," referring to Marquel and Ron. Marquel confronts Andrew about the comment, which he of course denies. (J.J. maintains he wasn't lying.) Regardless, both Andrew and Marquel are eliminated.

I can't believe they killed President Heller on 24: Live Another Day! What does this mean for Jack? — Jackie
It's safe to assume that Jack's role in Heller's death will mean major drama between Jack and Heller's daughter Audrey. But even though you'd think Audrey could never forgive Jack's betrayal, there may be a glimmer of hope (especially since Audrey's husband also played along with Heller's death wish.) "Jack's question when this is all over is, 'Can he go back with Audrey? Is there a chance for the two of them?'"executive producer Evan Katz says. "In Episode 5, it was pretty clear that the two of them still love each other."

Now that Hank is back in the Hamptons on Royal Pains, does that mean that he and Boris are done? — Deb

Why Everyone Should Watch Rectify, TV's Most Devastatingly Poignant Drama

Aden Young

A lot of you probably don't have the Sundance Channel. A lot of you probably do and don't even know it. Either way, that's no longer an excuse not to watch one of the most captivating and poignant TV series in recent memory. The entire six-episode first season of the network's first scripted series Rectify is available to stream on Netflix, and I can promise you it's worth your time.

A masterfully calibrated meditation on doubt, loss and change, Rectify is about Daniel Holden (Aden Young), a man who is unexpectedly released from prison after spending 19 years on death row. Holden was convicted as a teenager of the rape and murder of his high school girlfriend and his release reopens old wounds in the small Georgia town where his family still resides. While law enforcement works on building a new case, many of the residents lack the patience for modern justice to run its course.
