In Plain Sight

"In Plain Sight" isn't going to go down as the longest running show in USA Network history, but let's face it, there's absolutely nothing embarrassing about going five seasons. As with any series, the show has had its ups and downs, but we tend to think its been more up than down. We do like Mary McCormack and she has proven here, as if she needed to do so again, that she is a compelling actress. Even if you haven't been a faithful fan through the years, you probably ought to tune in tonight for the series finale. This is the end of the show after all and we're all curious to know how it ends.

For its fifth and final season, "In Plain Sight" has been given an eight episode order. That means that we won't get that weird cable thing where they show a couple of episodes and declare half the season over. They then, typically, have the show disappear for something like six months or a year before having the show return to finish the season. We lose track of what season it is when that sort of thing happens. As we watch Mary Shannon struggle with work and motherhood we're quite happy that we get to see her all work it out at one moment rather than being forced to try and remember what happens while the show is off the air.

Will season four of "In Plain Sight" end with some sort of a bang? "In Plain Sight" will be returning for a fifth season next year, but for some reason we still think it distinctly possible for the show to close out with some monumentally staggering cliffhanger. For instance, what if our favorite U.S. Marshal turns out to be dirty? What if Mary Shannon has been working for the mafia all along, just waiting for the city of Albuquerque to hit critical mass in terms of witnesses present. Tonight then it could get to that point, thereby activating Shannon from her sleeper status. Now that would be a season finale we could get on board.

Ah, it is apparently time to return to Albuquerque, the city which is entirely full of folks who have relocated their for their stint in the Witness Protection Program. You might think that a horrible fate, but the truth is that if you have someone like Mary McCormack around to show you the city and all that it offers, you might not mind it so much. Her character here can be a little touchy, so we advise that you not get on her bad side. We're not complaining that she's touchy, that's what keeps everyone safe in the city, we're just advising you to watch your step once you've relocated to the big A.

Okay... everyone hide! No you fools not under the desk, that's not a good place to hide. You know where the best place to hide is, don't you? That's right, the best place to hide is in plain sight. It is our personal opinion then that sitting on your couch watching this season finale is just about the best place you can hide tonight - you'll be hiding in plain sight watching "In Plain Sight." That's double the in plain sight and if one in plain sight hiding location is good, two must be better. Or something like that.

We firmly believe that if the Witness Protection Program sent as many people to Albuquerque, New Mexico as they seem to do on this show, it would be pretty easy to figure out where to go to rub out the guy who is informing on you. Fewer than a million people live in the metropolitan area (just over a half-million in the city itself), and yet according to this series Mary Shannon has a case load which features no fewer than a half billion witnesses. The numbers just don't add up - how can Mary watch a half billion people if there are fewer than a million in the area? Guess we'll just have to tune in for the season premiere and try to figure it out.
