Storyline

Mary tries to cajole a reluctant marijuana grower (and user) to testify against his former partners who are being prosecuted for the murder of a DEA agent six months earlier -- or else he and his family will be dropped from the WITSEC program and he'll be prosecuted for the murder. In the meantime, in the continuing fallout from the investigation of Brandi's possible drug possession and Mary's kidnapping, Mary is shadowed by a psychologist who will determine whether Mary can be returned to full status with the Marshal's Office.

Trivia

This episode features a fast food establishment called "Bob's Burgers". The dialogue implies that its a national (or at least regional) chain, when one person said "I didn't know New Mexico had Bob's Burgers." In reality, there really is a chain of fast food restaurants called "Bob's Burgers" and in fact, that shot was filmed at one of their locations (with the corporate logos and menu boards changed), however, its a purely local chain of restaurant, with all of their locations in Albuquerque, or the surrounding area. So, any other restaurant named "Bob's Burgers" outside of New Mexico is not the same chain as portrayed in the episode. See more »

Goofs

The giant seal behind the judge in the court proceeding in Denver says "State of Colorado," and depicts the Colorado State Seal. The prosecution for the murder of the DEA agent, however, is in federal court, which would not use a state seal. On a separate note, because the agent's murder is depicted as having taken place in Humboldt County, California, whether it is prosecuted in state or federal court, it should have been in a California state or federal court, not in Denver.

Quotes

Mary Shannon: [Jerry has been admitted to the hospital] What the hell happened?
Marshall Mann: Well, according to the cropduster who happened to be flying by at the time, "The dang fool just tumbled ass-over-teakettle out of his cotton-picking, cherry-picker for no good reason." Which isn't a huge surprise, since Jerry reeked of pot when they brought him in.
Mary Shannon: I thought you were going to get rid of his stash.
Marshall Mann: [sarcastically] I did. However, in the limited time afforded me, I wasn't able to get rid of all the pot in Albuquerque.

In Plain Sight 'In My Humboldt Opinion' Review
10 May 2009 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Consistency,

this is exactly the type of material I appreciate in a series and it is most often rarely seen.

In Plain Sight manages to pull off a consistent 'Wow' of a Season 2! Giving us as viewers two consecutive installments, In My Humboldt Opinion, included.

Mary is now finding her way around her old job and she has 'The Newbie' Eleanor to deal with. As Mary tried to adapt to her surroundings and deal with her past struggles, Eleanor's new furniture arrangement wasn't cutting it. Good Mary was gone and Bi**** Mary was back, giving Eleanor competition for the 'bossy' title she wanted to claim. I smiled when Eleanor confronted Mary about her bossiness, saying that Mary cannot intimidate her, which is funny because by her saying that, Mary probably does intimidate her... as she did everyone. Everyone loves Mary, despite her ways and Eleanor had to earn her stripes, being the 'Newbie' and all!

In this week's case, Mary had to deal with a typical hypochondriac (Jerry); an owner of a marijuana plant testifying against his buyers. I found it surprising that he had a family; a wife and two children. I didn't really understand how his family put up with his drug-use; taking marijuana to stay sane, especially around the children. Was he always high on marijuana when he met his wife, how far did his condition date back? Was it his personality on or off marijuana she fell in love with?

None-the-less, Jerry is afraid to speak on the witness stand... off the marijuana , and decides to take his life to prevent himself from testifying. So how much did he love his family if he was willing to take his own life and fake Amnesia?

Mary, Mary, Mary, she sure brought out the real Jerry. Giving him petty threats and then babying him in the end; attaching what appeared to be a smiley face on his microphone in court. At least she got him in court.

While he was on the stand, Jerry took a little while to give his name on introduction, he also looked like a child. On a real note, given "Boston Legal" Knowledge of a typical case in court, wouldn't the opposing party be aware of his marijuana usage. Prosecution could prosecute Jerry, someone with his mental state would say anything anyone told him to say... like Mary perhaps. "Psst Jerry make sure and point out the guys that look the most guilty *wink*"

Anyway, we didn't really get to see the prosecuting side and it was cool watching a frailly Jerry in court. I give credit to the scene where Mary placed the smiley sticker on his microphone and the point where he didn't need the smiley anymore.

The scenes with Mary and her analyst were well played; another intrusion into Mary's lifestyle which Mary took on surprisingly better than Eleanor. It was fun watching her analyst always writing in her note pad.

Mary - "What could you possibly be writing"

They actually formed a brief friendship-I guess; in the end. Then again if you look at the other side of the coin, Mary had to be nice to her, she held Mary's continuation at work in the palm of her hands, which encouraged Mary to behave a bit better to everyone. I loved how Mary fancied up her words when she was talking to Jerry.

Mary - "Just giving you something to write" :D

As for Mary's family, Jinx was back to her old crazy self- well alcoholic that is and Brandi was well changing her life, trying to go to school again, trying to become more civilized like Mary - a bit.

Eleanor sort of earned her stripes as well, breaking up the argument in the office, McQueen actually acted like a boss and who saw that Eleanor and McQueen thing coming?

Finally we get to see Ralph and their relationship has picked up heat again. Hmm, asking Mary to pass him a towel!
