Read on for more:

• Forbes interviews Ray McKinnon about going from actor to showrunner, discussing his work on Deadwood as an inspiration and an influence.

• The A.V. Club examines the series’ mise-en-scene, writing, “The spell cast by the show is at least partially tied to the way it’s never quite clear what’s been constructed for the purpose of RECTIFY, and what was found.”

Entertainment Weekly calls last week’s relatively relaxed episode welcome because “RECTIFY is such a tautly performed show, and every moment is so tightly packed with emotional consequence, that at times it’s hard to breath through all the tension.”

Paste considers Ray McKinnon’s Deadwood days too, pointing out the steadily increasing crossover between the series’ casts.
