I know it's just TV…
Monday, August 10th, 2009

But I’m worried about Mary Shannon.

You know, the U.S. Marshall in In Plain Sight. The woman’s got big problems, many of them caused by her own bad attitude, but she’s lying in a hospital bed with the doctor’s waiting for her to get strong enough so they can perform the surgery to save her life. Last night she was shot in the series season finale, and the bastards at USA are going to make me wait until Spring to find out whether she makes it.

Okay, so I know it’s just TV and if they renew the show, she has to live, but there are sooooo many other plot threads left dangling after that wacky season that I don’t want to wait until freaking Spring!

Let’s talk about her family. Her mom’s an alcoholic who went through rehab this season, and I can only hope she falls off the wagon again because Leslie Ann Warren was delightful as a lush. Her sister escaped the federal drug charges against her…or has she? The relentless FBI guy wants sis as much as he’s gunning for Mary now for aiding and abetting.

Mary’s adorable Latino boyfriend, Raphael, proposed and moved in with Mary. And anyone watching the two of them together knows they will never make it to the alter. He’s a nurturer and she can’t stand being taken care of. Rafe and the sis however… I think we see that coming!

Her partner is my favorite part of the show. We’ve had hints all along how much he’s into Mary. This season, while toasting her engagement to Rafe, he said he loved her, but everyone listening assumed…love like a friend. We, the audience, knew he’s nuts about her. Mary hasn’t a clue and treats him like an annoying flea.

Then there’s Stan her boss, the adorably sexy little Jack Russell who’s wonderful to watch when he’s laying into guys heads taller than he is. He’s sexy when he gets all riled up and his new admimistrative worker, Mary’s estrogen rival in the office, can’t resist his appeal from time to time.

Then there’s the tantalizing thread of her missing father who’s on the run from the law—see why I love her? Her life’s a complete mess.

Mary, Mary, Mary….what will I do until Spring?

    I love this show too!

    And I agree, it sucks having to wait until spring to find out what happens!

    Do you watch Burn Notice on USA too? If not you should check it out, you’d like it.

    Megan! I LOVE Burn Notice. It’s one of the smartest shows on TV. And they have the king of smarmy charm, Bruce Campbell!!

    I haven’t seen the show. I think I tried watching the first episode but I have noticed lately that getting through 1st shows has been kinda hard for me.

    I wonder if Blockbuster has the full season for me to see.

    Psych is back and that’s what I’ll be watching and maybe Monk since its the final season. By daughter is a fiend for that show.

    I TIVO Psych and Monk as well. Psych is just goofy fun. Monk got annoying to me last season, but I won’t miss the final season!

    I love “In Plain Sight,” too. I was sad when they said the next season won’t be begin until next spring. I can’t wait that long. I need to know who shot Mary. I thought it was that Mario guy, but now I’m wondering who did it.

    We just started watching this show this season and OMG, it’s SO GOOD. Husband started yelling at the TV last night when he was left hanging. AND SPRING? Are you freaking kidding me? I don’t want to wait that long!

    So many shows… So much good writing… I really need a DVR because they’re never on when I can or want to watch them.

    Not at night because that’s when others hog the TV. I want to OVERDOSE on shows.

    Blockbuster? That may be the solution. But I have a problem with returning borrowed/rented things…

    So I got True Blood season 1 for my birthday. Do the kids know me or what??

    Jane! Yeah, Mario looked sinister, but that was too obvious, wasn’t it? But we didn’t see anyone else other than the gang leader, so who else could it be?

    Cyndi! If you can get the first season on DVD, you will understand some of the family problems that were defined last year. The show’s great. I love Marshall and watching him unravel last night—wow!

    Masha! I haven’t seen True Blood yet because I don’t have Showtime, but it’s on my TBB list!
