    Product Description

    Since 1970, the Federal Witness Protection Program has relocated thousands of witnesses - some criminal, some not – to neighborhoods all across the country. Every one of those individuals shares a unique attribute, distinguishing them from the rest of the general population. And that is, somebody wants them dead. Get lost with Mary McCormack as the compelling and quirky hit USA series In Plain Sight comes to DVD! U.S. Marshal Mary Shannon (McCormack) works for the Federal Witness Protection Program (WITSEC) relocating and protecting career criminals, compulsive liars, thieves, murderers, and the occasional innocent bystander. With the help of her partner Marshall Mann (yes, Marshal Marshall) and her beat-up but beloved car, she just may get through her workday in time to deal with her sort-of boyfriend, her flaky sister, and her ne’er-do-well mother. Featuring an impressive cast, including Fred Weller, Nichole Hiltz, Todd Williams, and Lesley Ann Warren, In Plain Sight is the funny, suspenseful drama that critics are calling “hugely entertaining!” (Hal Boedeker, Orlando Sentinel).


    An amusing blend of cop show action and dysfunctional family fireworks, the comedy-drama In Plain Sight benefits greatly from the charisma of its lead, Mary McCormack, as well as some promising episodes in this first-season set. TV and film vet McCormack (The West Wing, Murder One) finally gets a lead as Mary Shannon, a U.S. Marshal working in the Albuquerque office of the Witness Protection Program. The array of offbeat characters that fall under Mary’s jurisdiction--everyone from innocent witnesses of terrible crimes to less scrupulous types like Dave Foley’s obnoxious mob squealer (“Trojan Horst”) to a diamond smuggler (Missi Pyle) with wedding fever (“Never the Bride”)--present less problems for her than her family, which includes her overly dramatic mom (Lesley Ann Warren) and troublemaking sister (Nichole Hiltz), who has designs on Mary's on-again-off-again boyfriend (Cristian de la Fuente). Frederick Weller (as her quirky partner) and Paul Ben-Victor as her boss offer solid support, but In Plain Sight is McCormack’s showcase, and she shines in both the comic moments and more serious elements, most notably a confessional monologue in “High Priced Spread.” One wishes the scripts lived up to the performances--too often, the program coasts on glib dialogue, or worse, heavy-handed voice-overs--but these are fixable problems in the face of considerable potential. All 12 episodes of the first season are included in the three-disc set, as well as brief deleted scenes from each episode. --Paul Gaita

    This crime drama has a lot of wit and humor.
    Love to laugh
    Got to get the morons out of traffic so the bad guys can hassle them, but it makes Mary and Marshall complete idiots.

    I will buy and watch every episode, this is going to be a great series.

    Hopefully, Mary McCormack reads her Amazon.com reviews. IN PLAIN SIGHT is the kind of intelligent comedy-drama that commercial TV should be producing, but can't or won't.

    The life story of U.S. Marshal Mary Shannon who works for the U.S. Witness Protection Program (WITSEC), as told through her encounters with her colleagues and various "clients," IN PLAIN SIGHT's storylines are multidimensional and complex. So are the characters.

    Mary is a tough, competent, and sharp-witted woman with ice in her professional veins. She's also nostalgic, emotional and warm, dedicated to friernds, family and the witnesses under her charge, and is committment-phobic. She drives a junkbox. She has a non-boyfriend who loves her. She may or may not love him, but she sleeps with him. She has a brilliant partner named Marshall Mann who loves her. She clearly loves him. They'd each take a bullet for the other. She doesn't sleep with him, but she's apparently jealous of his involvements with other women.

    Mary has a mother (named Jinx) and a sister (named Brandi) with a combined bimbo quotient of over 250 and revolving doors on their bedrooms, who are both likeable and surprisingly innocent, and deeply wounded, and love her very much. They live with her. They don't work. She supports them. For their protection she has a cover as a low-level courier. They can't understand why she's wasting her life, and criticize her for not meeting a man as they leaf through this month's issue of Cosmo.

    At work she's barbed and her emotions and moods change faster than the tides. She has a boss. He respects her. Despite titles, she's very definitely in charge.

    I didn't catch onto this series until the first season was already over, but have been enjoying reruns on the USA network and Sleuth. And I have been anticipating the release of this series on DVD ever since. The characters are well developed, full of the flaws which accompany us all on life's path, and for the most part are very likable. That said, the over-the-top dysfunctional antics of Mom and Sis DO get old, and I find Jinx's character to be a waste of the talents of Leslie Ann Warren. She is absolutely the queen of quirky, but of all the characters, her storylines are the least entertaining, and in fact, bring down the entire show a notch. If I get tired of this series, this will be the reason for it. Mary certainly has dysfunctions of her own, but she at least, appears to be able to learn along the way. I'd like to see the dysfunction toned down. If these characters can all grow a bit, then I believe this series could have a long and successful run.

    The interaction between Mary McCormack and Fred Weller's characters is especially delightful; it's the jewel of this series, and without it, I'm not sure how successful this show would be. What with his encyclopaedic knowledge of all things arcane and quirky, and his perfectly dry, straight-man delivery, he and Mary have a delightful kind of chemistry you don't see too often. In fact, I feel he really should have equal billing to Mary McCormack.

    The Witness Protection aspect of the story makes for somewhat unusual storylines, which are MORE than welcome, and the show is well written. All in all, it adds up to a lot of fun. And as an extra bonus for me, it's filmed in Northern New Mexico, my favorite place in the world. What more could I ask for?

    I'm not really into "cop" shows or "detective" shows that dominate network t.v. because they are usually dull, predictable, depressing, and totally lacking any humor. "In Plain Sight" doesn't suffer from these problems.

    Luckily, I stumbled across this series last summer. The main character is a Federal Marshall who is involved in the Witness Protection program. She has to keep her clients safe and solve murders based upon her client's testimony. She and her partner Marshall have great chemistry together on-screen.

    If you're a fan of "Burn Notice" you will enjoy this series as well; although they are different shows, what they share in common is humor, action, and great characters which are well written. The writers also explore the personal dramas of the main characters which makes for an interesting back-story.

    Season 2 premieres April 2009 on USA network for existing fans of the show- for those that are curious and have never watched the show, rent/buy season 1 on dvd and you'll be up to speed when season 2 starts.

    ** highly recommended **

    This is a fun, action packed show with excellent acting. The plots are decent too - good really for that type of genre. I love this show actually.

    I am hooked on this show after one viewing - I record & keep watching: the characters are bright, articulate, and funny, the writing is bright, articulate, & funny, & the plots are believable, concise, & fast-paced. USA, please keep this show going - too many good ones have disappeared too quickly, at least from the major networks. I hope you've got it together to keep Mary, Marshall, & their cohorts with us for a long time. I will be buying the box sets, no doubt!
