  • Son of Mann

    In Plain Sight needs to start living in the present. A few weeks ago we saw what happened when Mary met Marshall and now we are seeing Marshall's father. The show needs to focus on progressing forward and not just providing more backstory for these characters. We like these characters, that is why we watch the show, but the cases have to start getting more interesting or people will lose interest.

    USA has Burn Notice and Psych, but In Plain Sight could be that third great show for the network. But this new direction, the overly serious family arguments, and the stupid narrating, is preventing IPS from achieving that goal.moreless
  • Meet Marshall's Dad..........

    In this episode of In Plain Sight, the following happens. Marshall's father comes into town to work on a case, which makes Mary very happy. She tries to find out more about Marshall's past before they met, but she doesn't have much luck. His father makes him feel as though he is inadequate. Plus Brandi also returned in this episode and brought home someone with her, her and Mary's half brother. This of course, does not go down well with Mary. Overall this was a really interesting episode. It was really nice to see Marshall's father and the relationship that they share.moreless

    • Seth Mann: (to Marshall) I, um... worried about you growing up. It's a rough world. You're not a rough guy. But I think maybe that's a good thing. A real good thing.

    • Marshall: With all the hullabaloo, I forgot to acknowledge the fact that you probably saved my dad's life.
      Mary: Come on... We both know he could have caught that bullet in his teeth. How does a guy like that have a son who says "hullabaloo", anyway?

    • Mary: (to Marshall's dad) There's so much I want to know. Who was Marshall's first celebrity crush? How old was he when he went to his first Star Trek convention? And when did he start using a curling iron?
      Marshall: Fortunately, you're dealing with a man of few words.
      Mary: Uh-huh. Give my best to your wishful thinking.

    • Seth Mann: Marshall.
      Marshall: Dad.
      Mary: (to herself) Heaven.
