Rectify (2013-2016), 4 seasons, 30 episodes

“I’m not sure what to make of this drastic change of course in my life. I’m certainly not against it”

Rectify has consistently been one of the best shows on TV since it began airing in April 2013. It is also a show with ratings so small that finding other people who watch is always a struggle. Yet those who have given their time to seek out this series know how special it is. This is not a show based on big action scenes or twists intended to lure in audiences. This is a story about one man, one night 19 years previously and the ongoing repercussions. It is about moving on and finding purpose. It is about faith, forgiveness, justice, humanity, the very nature of who we are.  It is truly an unique show. I am going to miss it so much.

person: the perfect guy doesn’t exist.

me: *breaks out a list of band members.* Austin, Vic, Mike, Andy, Tony, Jaime, Jeremey, Ashley, Oli, Alan, Chris, Ronnie, Jinxx, Danny, Ben, Kellin… (the list continues)

person:

me:

person: you need help.

me: i would get the therapy, but i’m saving for merch and Warped Tour.

It’s so weird that half the time I can’t even remember what I went into the bathroom for but I can remember the birthdays and life stories of people that don’t even know I exist.

All these men have fucking saved my live! When I was depressed, I couldn’t laugh about anything but these heroes let me feel I am important for the people around me. I hope these guys will always continue making music and make their fans proud. I know I won’t meet all of you but I hope you guys know that we, your fans, will always support you! love you guys <3 and I still hope that MCR will get together again

REASONS THAT THIS WAS THE BEST SNL OF THE SEASON

1) Cecily’s ‘trademark Carly fiorina smile’ in the cold open
2) Tina and Amy’s monologue song
3) Literally everything about the Clinton/Clinton/Palin sketch, like Amy’s 2008 Clinton wanting to leave to send a bunch of emails and Kate’s 2015 Clinton smacking the phone out of her hand and screaming “NO” and Kate saying 'benghazi’ and Amy being like 'who is that’ and then you could see Kate’s Clinton’s soul being destroyed. And when Tina showed up as Palin and sassed everyone into oblivion.
4) Flaming hoverboards
5) TINA AND AMY AS 1940s LESBIANS
6) Tina and Amy doing the last update jokes of the year
7) DOPE SQUAD
8) Bruce Springsteen every time he was on stage
9) The video collection when MAYA FRICKIN RUDOLPH SHOWED UP and Amy did cocaine with a vacuum
10) BRONX BEAT. NOW INCLUDING TINA FEY AS COUSIN KAREN FROM PHILLY.
11) Bruce Springsteen singing 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town’ and PAUL MCCARTNEY just randomly showing up and everyone singing along

Another Rectify Q&A hosted by Matt Zoller-Seitz (he jokes in the video that he’s just following the cast around), this time with Adelaide Clemens, J. Smith-Cameron and Bruce McKinnon. Among other things, they discuss how they got involved with the show, its authentic Southern feel and their experiences with shooting in Griffin, Georgia.
