REC­TIFY

SBS ONE, 9.35pm

If there’s any­thing that’s go­ing to pique view­ers’ in­ter­est, it’s the fact this se­ries is from the producers of Break­ing Bad. But even if you didn’t know that en­tic­ing lit­tle tit­bit, this is so beau­ti­fully shot, emo­tion­ally com­pelling and ut­terly in­trigu­ing that it’s a must- see. Rather than set­ting a thrilling fast pace, Rec­tify care­fully treads, re­veal­ing much in its quiet mo­ments. Lit­tle- known Aussie ac­tor Aden Young ( pic­tured) is en­tranc­ing as Daniel, a man who has spent 19 years on death row, but is sud­denly re­leased from prison thanks to new DNA ev­i­dence, re­turn­ing to his fam­ily and the watch­ful eyes of his small town. There are six episodes, each de­tail­ing one day of his life af­ter time be­hind bars. fod­der in movies ( think I Love You, Man, The Hang­over, Wayne’s World ), while on TV we have had Alan and Denny’s tough love in Bos­ton Le­gal and Troy and Abed’s close bond in Com­mu­nity. Less suc­cess­fully in Part­ners, we have best friends and part­ners in a new ar­chi­tec­tural firm, Louis ( Michael Urie) and Joe ( David Krumholtz). Stick­ing to the stereo­type that op­po­sites at­tract, Joe is or­gan­ised and busi­ness- like while Louis has a knack for screw­ing things up. Tonight, the pair ea­gerly wait to find out if they have been nom­i­nated for a pres­ti­gious “Archie” award.
