What to Watch Wednesday: Rectify's final season

Plus: Geeeeeear!

Posted on

Jackson Lee Davis/Sundance TV

Your daily guide to the most interesting stuff happening on TV and streaming. All times Eastern.

PICK OF THE NIGHT

Rectify

SundanceTV, 10 p.m.

Daniel (Aden Young) is technically free, but that doesn’t mean life from here on out is going to be easy. The gentle Georgia native has to start over in Nashville, where he continues to grapple with whether he’s guilty or innocent of the crime for which he spent 19 years on death row. There’s still plenty to rectify in this slow-burning drama’s final season.

SERIES DEBUT

Jon Glaser Loves Gear

TruTV, 10 p.m.

Jon Glaser is best known as Councilman Jamm from Parks and Rec, but he’s made alt-comedy gold for years. (See: Adult Swim’s Delocated.) His latest is a concept-y parody show: Glaser plays the host of an outdoorsy docuseries about gadgets that goes hilariously off the rails. It’s basically like Comedy Central’s excellent Review — the fourth wall falls as Glaser’s personal issues and emotions get in the way of the show’s production. Bonus: Glaser yells “Geeeeeaaaarrrr!” a whole lot.

PURGE NIGHT

black-ish

ABC, 9:30 p.m.

Things get out of hand when the neighborhood agrees to a Purge-like “mischief night” for the Halloween season, with petty crimes becoming legal for one evening only. Scary!
