I enjoyed season 1 of this US series, but when I reviewed it on here, I hoped for some improvements. Well, I wasn't disappointed. Season 2 continues very quickly on in timescale from the end of season 1. Mary is still coming to terms with what happened to her. The format continues to work with a new story of someone going into Witness Protection and the longer running family stories running alongside. There is more time given to the family plot, which I approve of as it is far more interesting and the pace has really picked up. The missing father story develops nicely, as does Mary's difficult relationship with her mother and sister and the problems with her sister's past. Her on-off relationship with her boyfriend is also dealt with a bit more deeply. My only complaint is that Mary's sister continues to be a little one-dimensional for my liking, although there are occasional flashes of something more and a new love interest for her does help a bit.
I think "In Plain Sight" is one of those series that is going to grow into itself over time, it's almost there. There is just the right mix of action, drama, twists and turns, as well as funny and touching moments. Mary is the character that holds it all together. She has plenty of depth and is well played by the actress. I will definitely stick with it if season 3 comes along. Well worth a watch.
