Join actor Aden Young and Times staff writer Glenn Whipp at 4 p.m. PDT Thursday for a live video chat about Young's work on "Rectify," the Sundance Channel's acclaimed new television series.

Young plays Daniel Holden, who returns to his small Georgia hometown after spending 19 years in prison for the rape and murder of his girlfriend. Daniel's conviction has been vacated due to new DNA evidence, but the community -- and members of his own family -- remain divided over his guilt.

The show's debut season contained six immaculately constructed episodes that focused on the challenges facing Daniel as he tried to reconnect with his old life and any sense of normalcy after being on death row for nearly two decades.

Times' television critic Mary McNamara called "Rectify" the "genre's "biggest potential game changer since AMC debuted the one-two punch of 'Mad Men' and 'Breaking Bad,'" while in my Gold Standard column, I wrote that a case could easily be made for calling the show the year's best drama.

Young, who McNamara said "delivered an exquisitely textured physical performance," will be joining us to take questions and talk about the haunting, enigmatic character. Just don't expect a definitive answer on Daniel's innocence. Young said he still doesn't know himself.
