Product Description

Mary McCormack returns as tough and sexy U.S. Marshal Mary Shannon in the fifth and final season of this critically acclaimed hit series. Back from maternity leave, Mary rejoins her job at the Witness Protection Program (WITSEC) and must quickly find a way to balance motherhood and her job protecting both innocent people and cold-blooded killers on a daily basis. If that didn’t complicate things enough, her fugitive father suddenly returns, her ex-fiancé pops back into her life and her longtime partner, Marshall, is getting engaged! Guest starring Tia Carrere (True Lies), Lesley Ann Warren (Desperate Housewives), Aaron Ashmore (Smallville), Stephen Lang (Avatar), Julia Jones (Twilight), Madchen Amick (Twin Peaks), Josh Hopkins (Cougar Town), Eric Lynch (Howard Stern on Demand) and Bryan Callen (The Hangover), watch the final episodes of the unique and riveting series that made hiding In Plain Sight so much fun.

Amazon.com

The action-drama In Plain Sight ends its five-season run with an eight-episode arc that brings together its array of storylines in a manner befitting its main character, Deputy Marshal Mary Shannon (Mary McCormack): equal parts tough and tender, with a decidedly quirky sense of humor, and a soft spot for the family unit, no matter how diverse (or dysfunctional). Mary's family essentially takes top priority throughout the final season, with the arrival of her wayward, bank-robbing father (Stephen Lang) sending the entire Shannon clan into protective custody and forcing Mary to choose between her profession and her chaotic but loving extended relations. Frederick Weller's Marshall Mann also has some choices to make, specifically in regard to his allegiance to Mary and impending marriage to Rachel Boston's Detective Abigail Chaffee. With so many interpersonal issues at stake, the witness-protection cases seem secondary, and indeed, the subjects here, including a drag queen and a hoarder, lack the grit or vulnerability seen in previous seasons. But true to fashion, In Plain Sight wraps up with a satisfying finale for both Mary and (most likely) the viewer. Though it was never a headline-grabber like some major network shows, In Plain Sight's eclectic tone and smart dialogue earned the admiration of its loyal fan base, which will undoubtedly increase via the DVD releases. The two-disc season-five set includes no extras. --Paul Gaita

By HMS Warspite TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 18, 2012
In the episode "All's Well that Ends", the fifth season and the series "In Plain Sight" wrap it all up. U.S. Marshall Mary Shannon must contend with the protection of one last WITSEC person, a comely young model adjusting poorly to hiding out in New Mexico. Mary must also deal with the consequences of her long-missing criminal father's intrusion into her life. Finally, Mary must make serious plans for her own future with her baby as her office is threatened with closure. And, her long-time office partner Marshall needs to talks to her about something...

This is perhaps too much burden for one episode. The witsec issue gets resolved in the usual timeline. The issues created by Mary's father are untidy and their resolution is also less than tidy, even if there is a measure of redemption for both father and daughter. Mary comes to terms with her disfunctional family, after a fashion, and there are indications at the end that Mary intends to press on with her life as it is. There is an effort to wrap up the stories of the leading characters.

The least satisfying aspect of the episode, for this reviewer, was Mary's fateful conversation with longtime office partner and virtual soulmate Marshall. Previous episodes this season suggested both Marshal and Mary knew he wasn't entirely free to just ride off into the sunset with his fiancee, due to his attachment to Mary. This could have been a life-changing moment, but instead of champagne, we got warm diet soda and this long-time viewer was disappointed. But you have to see it and draw your own conclusions.

"All's Well that Ends" is highly recommended to fans of the series.

I really enjoyed this whole series. I like series that have strong female leads and this one was great. I am very sorry to see it end.

This may be my all time favorite series. There was not one bad or poorly written episode. Sorry to see it end. Couldn't wait to see how it all wound up, at the same time hated to watch, knowing this would be the last of it. Kind of like reading a wonderful book, you can't put it down, yet you hate to come the the last page because the adventure and your relationship with the characters you've taken in is over.

This series started out on the rocks, in my opinion. The second season was the absolute height, and after that finale I was really looking forward to season three. Boy was I disappointed: The entire dynamic changed, with a larger office, more strangers, the loss of a secretary who was adding a lot to the plot line, and Marshal's new character which I just never liked as much as the original Marshal. The return of Mary's original fiance in this season felt forced, and didn't add a whole lot to the plot. The ending was a surprise for me, but was just barely memorable. I was just happy to see the series put out of its misery after the horrible knee capping done in the third season.

We love this show! My husband and I started the first season on Netflix and ended up having to watch the fourth and fifth season on Amazon. It is a great mixture of drama and suspense. It has the action and suspense from Mary Shannon's job of being a US Marshall and helping relocate witnesses who hand joined the witness protection program along with the drama for her typical dysfunctional family. It is all around a good, clean show.

I did like it, but the main character has lost a lot of her appeal. I don't mean physical appearance; despite her baby weight she's still quite attractive. I mean her quirky nature, such as the Ford Probe that she drove in some of the earlier seasons that barely ran and smoked like crazy. Nothing really major, but just a lot of little quirks that aren't there in the last season.

It is basically a good show, but season 4 was really where they should have ended it, or not taken away her quirky nature.

I really enjoyed this series and was disappointed when I found out it was ending. I watched all of them but this episode because my DVR did not record it due to a storm we had when it was on. I tried to find it for a long time hoping it would replay but finally decided to just rent it. I'm very happy with how they ended the show. It was a fun and enjoyable ending. If you haven't seen this show its a good one to pickup and watch.

A recent trend in TV has been to give shows a limited number of episodes in a final season to wrap things up. That's what happened with In Plain Sight - season 5 was reduced to 8 final episodes. But boy did they cram them full of so much goodness.

This season picks up six months after the end of season 4. Mary Shannon (Mary McCormack) is returning to work at the Albuquerque branch of Witness Protection, aka WITSEC, after six months of maternity leave. And as baby sitting does or doesn't work out, that means that the new baby might be in toe. Meanwhile, Mary's partner Marshall (Frederick Weller) is still living with his girlfriend Abigail (Rachel Boston).

As things get under way, their boss Stan (Paul Ben-Victor) learns that their branch of WITSEC might be closed down. And a face from Mary's past reappears to cause problems.

And there are still witnesses to deal with. A drag queen can't resist going back to the clubs even though he's been warned to leave that life behind. One witness with a secret wife enters the program. And a hoarder with a mental breakdown makes for a hard day on fellow agent Delia (Tangie Ambrose).

With only 8 episodes, there's a lot packed into each one, so none of them are wasted. Most still follow the standard formula of a witness main story with the lives of the characters as a sub-plot, although a couple of times Mary's life completely takes over. People new to the show probably won't get how great the last few episodes are, but fans of the show will relish the closure and character arcs we get.

And the cases of the week? They are still entertaining since the writers manage to find new ways to create suspense.
