I Hope i have done the right move by buying this series , however i have just seen the first one in the series and just could not keep up with the story line , it seems all over the place with coming and going with the story line very thin , i have read other reviews on this series and the first two of the series are a bit ??? but then it picks up [ i hope ] i will come back later as i watch more to see if the story lines get any better , if you were thinking of buying season 1 maybe it would pay you just to buy episode one to see how you find it .

I had never heard of this series when it was recommended to me, so I wasn't sure what to expect. It focuses on Mary, a tough talking US Marshall responsible for people in the Witness Protection Programme. Each episode deals with a different criminal or witness and the complications that arise from being in the programme. However, there is also the long-running storyline of Mary and her partner, Mary and her on/off baseball playing boyfriend and Mary and her flighty mother and sister. Mary and her family also have some backstory relating to her father who has been missing for most of her life and is wanted by the FBI.

The pilot episode and the follow up were a little dreary, I found, and I was a little disappointed. However, after that it really picks up and I started to be much more interested in what was going on. The relationships between the characters became clearer, rather than foggy mess that they seemed at first. The longer running storylines are more compelling than the "new each week" ones and that's what holds the interest. The acting is pretty good but there is still some work to do. Mary's sister, in particular, can be a little one-dimensional, so I hope that will improve in further seasons. I think it could be funnier too. There's room for a little more humour in there.

It's worth a try if you have liked other American crime shows but it's not up there with the likes of Criminal Minds or CSI or The Mentalist for example. I'm going to stick with it for season 2 and see how it improves.

Well, I took the plunge and ordered the series and to be honest I'm impressed. In a nut shell the show is just another TV detective story. The difference being that rather than chasing criminals , the story lines are based on hiding them. The reason I headlined with the adjective 'different' is that instead of presenting us with a Gung-ho macho central character, the producers give us Mary. Who while she can give as good as she gets in a bun fight, presents the viewers with a female perspective of police work. So instead of using the brute strength of other police type stories,she uses her feminine intuition (which while not as visually effective as explosions,guns and anger does get the job done.Note there are explosions,guns and anger. Just not as many as usual)

Also and the reason why I only gave this 4 stars, is because I do believe that this series is aimed at the female market. So we have extremely handsome men as boyfriends,detectives and such,while the female characters while pretty are more your next door neighbor type. We have emotion, solitary crying and a few group hugs. Don't get me wrong this isn't a show based on Sex in City,Ugly Betty or Desperate Housewives.

What the producers have managed to come up with is a series which can be enjoyed by both sexes. Which is why I will be ordering the second series.

In my opinion this appears to be a very underrated series.
In Plain Sight centres on Mary Shannon, a U.S. Marshall based in New Mexico and specialising
in the U.S. witness protection program.
There is a vast number of different people needing protection for various reasons and this gives us a
lot of opportunity for interesting stories to unfold.
As well as the thriller aspect, stopping the bad guys from killing their witnesses, Mary has to deal with their personal issues whilst balancing her home life at the same time.
Mary McCormack plays Shannon as both incredibly tough but also really vulnerable at the same time.
her partner in the service is a Marshall called Marshall Mann (Yes Marshall, Marshall) and is an excellent foil for Mary's biting sarcasm and wit that brings a nice dose of humour to the show.
Try the first series, I bet most people will soon be hooked.

Mary Shannon (Mary McCormack) is a Federal Marshal with the Witness Protection Program. Working along side her partner Marshall Mann (Fred Weller), she helps witnesses adjust to their new life in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Since most of these people are criminals who agreed to testify against other criminals, that isn't always easy. For example, there's the con artist who may or may not have set her sights on a new mark, yet gets her picture in the paper. There's the man who brings his wife and mistress into the program only to decide it was time to break up with his mistress. And even when the witnesses are innocent, their lack of desire to leave their old life behind them can lead to problems, too.

If all that weren't enough, Mary's personal life is far from calm. She is supporting her dead beat mother (Lesley Ann Warren) and her sister Brandi (Nichole Hiltz). Not only has Brandi fallen for Mary's sometimes boyfriend Raphael (Cristian de la Fuente), but she is also hiding methamphetamine until her boyfriend can arrange the sale. What will happen when that little bombshell comes out?

Personally, I'm still not quite sure what to make of this show. At times, I am quite interested in seeing how things turn out. Then I get fed up with the soap opera nature of Mary's personal life. More often then not, Mary comes across as smug and condescending instead of human and funny, which I have a feeling is what they are aiming for. And the way she lets herself get manipulated by her family drives me crazy. And yet I keep watching because I need to know what will happen next. And I will tune in when the second season starts.

I certainly can't fault the acting in any of this. The actors all do an impeccable job of bringing their characters to life, flaws and all.
