DVD Review: Second Season of USA Network’s ‘In Plain Sight’

In Plain Sight: Season Two

CHICAGO – “In Plain Sight” has not really built the loyal following of other basic cable shows like “Burn Notice” or “The Closer” and I wish the show would try harder to live up to its potential but it’s still wildy entertaining and features one of the better TV actress performances from Mary McCormack.

CHICAGOUSA Network’s “In Plain Sight” was one of the best new shows of 2008, another hit for the highest-rated network on cable, USA.
