In Plain Sight 2008-2012

     US Marshal Mary Shannon provides new identities and places to live for people under the witness protection program.  She is based in Albuquerque, New Mexico and she works with her partner Marshall Mann.  Mary has a dysfunctional family with an overly dependent mother.  She has a younger sister Brandi and both women live with Mary.  Raphael Ramirez is Mary’s boyfriend but she has little time for him and he plays minor league baseball.
     This series had potential but there is a lot of over acting.  Scenes in Mary’s home have the same weight as the scenes with criminals trying to avoid any punishment for their crimes?  2 ½* (This series is so-so)

60 min each TV episode, Crime created by David Maples with Marry McCormack, Frederick Weller, Paul Ben-Victor, Nichole Hiltz, Lesley Ann Warren, Cristian de la Fuente, Victoria Murphy, Joshua Malina.

Note:  Imdb 7.3 out of 10, 50% audience on Rotten Tomatoes,
Special Note:  Filmed in Albuquerque and Albuquerque Studios, New Mexico.  The police cars have the same color and graphics as the real police cars in Albuquerque but the seal on the rear fender is fictitious.  The building used for the US Marshal’s office is the historic Sunshine Building in downtown Albuquerque.
