If you like great dramas that are a mix of family dysfunction and a classic procedural then I recommend In Plain Sight highly.

'In Plain Sight', Season 2, is as captivating and fun as Season 1. Mary McCormack continues to be the tough, sarcastic U.S. Marshall, advocating for her clients in Witness Protection. She still has her on and off romance with her hunky Dominican ball player. There's a surprise in this arena for all you fans. She has a bit of post-traumatic stress disorder from the last episode of season one when she was held hostage by drug thieves connected to her screw-up sister, Brandy. Brandy is still a mess but she is at least dating a decent guy she met at A.A. when she went to a meeting pretending to be her mother. Mom is in rehab but I wouldn't place any bets on how long that will last. There is a new office administrator and she and Mary are at each other's throats. The boss and the office administrator are getting on VERY well. Oh, by the way, Mary's house is still torn up and the feds don't seem in a rush to fix it up. From time to time people wonder where Brandy stashed the drugs. If you watched Season 1, you know what happened.

The episodes are as fun and as exciting as always and this is one of the better shows on TV this season. I highly recommend it.

unlike the previous rater who is complaining about the price of the item (if the price bothers you that bad....DON'T BUY IT!), that has nothing to do with the quality of the show. this is a great show! I particularly enjoy seeing a strong female lead who is slowly learning that she has to be vunerable at some point, that she can't be everything to everyone. Watching Mary evolve into a better person and woman is one of the more compelling parts to this show. and the chemistry among the actors is amazing. I can't wait for this to be released to add to my library.

In Plain Sight is the most dramatic show on USA network, and it shines because of it. The depth of character in this show is something that Burn Notice and Psych should really admire. Mary's family gives you the drama that you need and the WITSEC witnesses give you the regular procedural case. Mary is a Marshal for the US government and her duty is to protect witnesses and assign them new identities. She is partnered up with Marshal, yes a Marshall named Marshal. Their jabs at each other are always enjoyable to watch, but at all times you can see there is a deep layer of trust between them. Their boss is Stan and he helps keep the "maverick" Mary in line, or at least he tries. Both Stan and Marshal get center screen once during the season. This was a great move by the writers because these actors were well up to the task and those two episodes were some of the best in the season. I hope they do that again in season 3 to flesh out these characters even more. Eleanor was added this season as a new character in the WITSEC office. Her banter with Mary is quite enjoyable. I hope that they flesh out her character as the show progresses, because I think she has some skeletons in her closet. Mary's mother and sister add some great plotlines to help develop Mary's personal life. I think that her mother Jinx gets to be a little annoying as the season progresses, but her episodes in the beginning of the season make up for her late season antics. Brandi's boyfriend was a nice addition as well as you finally see some redemption in her future. I do have a small complaint this season. Mary's anxiety over killing the drug dealer at the end of last season was tied up way too quickly. I feel like they could have expanded on that more.Read more ›

This show is really great for one major reason - Mary McCormack. She plays her part as tough and smart and really fragile. PLEAE SOMEONE NOMINATE HER FOR SOME AWARD. The supporting players are equally wonderful - Frederick Willer and Lesley Ann Warren and Nichole Hitlz - supporting players you can't help but notice and embrace. But again - it's all about Mary - a truly gifted actress. Buy this DVD - one of my very very favorites. You won't be sorry.

This is truely a great show! Watching the reaction of the cast (especially Mary's partner) after Mary is shot is truely gut-wrenching. In fact, I was so totally envolved watching season 1&2 for 2 stright days I did not realize that they were over! Hopefully, Season 3 will come out soon. I sincerely hope that I am not the only one who appreciates this show!

In Plain Sight si smart and funny and tragic. Wonderful drama, especially when you can watch without commercials. Marshall Marshall is the perfect foil for Mary. The family dynamics are realistic and even those who are falling apart are loveable despite their dysfunction.

I still enjoy this show and the great characters. Season 2 had a nice progression from season 1 and had many great episodes. Great cinematography, great acting.

However, for me, some of the stories (scripts) didn't "sizzle" like in season 1. What I mean by that is that too many scripts deal with Mary and her inner circle drama, (mother, sister, boyfriend issues) and not on the individual cases she is working on, and the state / problems of the people she is trying to protect.

I hope the producers can bring some new writers on board and continue to make this a great series, while shaking things up a bit and trying new plot threads.

For example, instead of Mary and Marshall always being in Albuerquerque (I probably mis-spelled that)....have them fly all over the U.S., being in different states, with different shot locations, working on separate cases sometimes, with multiple plot threads. Some episodes I would leave un-solved, or unsolvable...because that is reality in law enforcement. Have a few "cold cases" that aren't resolved until the end of the season, for example.

Can't wait for season 3 in summer 2010! This show remains one of the best on tv.
