    Okay, I tried to get back into this show, but I think I am done trying. In Plain Sight, this is not the same show. I thought I hated the family members being there, but now, this new IPS without them, it has no perspective, it is just a generic procedural. If I wanted to watch that, I'd watch a far superior NCIS and its many reruns on USA Network.

    In Plain Sight used to be funny too, but that aspect of the show is gone. This is just a really mediocre television show, no other way to spin it.moreless
