Oh boy… I saw the episode from ‘In Plain Sight’ I had on tape last night. Mother Jinx and Sister Brandi had a field day in one of the most pathos filled episodes of the season. The writers managed to make Mary into a raving lunatic in this episode as she co-opts the US Marshall’s service, belittles and eviscerates her co-workers, cries on her partner’s shoulder because of her treatment of Brandi (huh?), and in the end forgives the whacko FBI agent causing her all the grief. My Lord in heaven, could those two imbeciles Jinx and Brandi be more annoying? If I was Raphael, I’d make Mary get a locked safe for all the cutlery and sharp objects, not to mention guns. If he plans to stay in that house with Mary and her two loons Raph will need to take precautions against the certainty he will maim one of them. If USA Network doesn’t put a choke chain on In Plain Sight’s resident dung beetles, Jinx and Brandi, no amount of superlative acting by the rest of the cast will save this series. I know USA’s slogan is ‘Characters Wanted’ but Jinx and Brandi aren’t ‘Characters’. They’re a ticket to cancellation.
I have a storyline for them if they insist on keeping the ‘Cretins’. Move the new sister in and have her torture Jinx and Brandi every time Mary’s gone. I’m sure Raph can be convinced to keep it a secret. My apologies to any Jinx and Brandi fans out there… oh hell, belay that… I’m not sorry. :)
