My does time fly when you’re busy working on a film. Tomorrow is the premier of Paul Ben-Victor’s new series In Plain Sight! Not long ago it seemed so far off, and now it’s already here. Funny how that happens.
So I’ve been checking out the reviews and the critics run the range from like it to hate it. Jonathan Storm from Philly.com describes the show as “formulaic, but it works” and manages to insult and compliment Paul all in one sentence:
Mary’s boss is Stan McQueen, which, I guess, is funny because he’s played by schlumpy, shrimpy Paul Ben-Victor, a great character actor last seen as henchman to The Greek, the all-powerful crime boss in The Wire.
Here are some more reviews to check out if you wish:
Crime Spree Cinema
The San Francisco Chronicle
Here’s an interesting press release that talks about USA’s interactive marketing campaign for In Plain Sight.
TV.com has a whole bunch of photos from the show that you can check out.
Fanbolt has a great interview with Paul about his new series and he does mention Invisible Man in it, more than once.
So be sure to check out Paul’s new series, In Plain Sight, tomorrow night, June 1, 2008, at 10:00 p.m. (9:00 p.m. Central) on USA.
That show looks pretty amusing. Especially if his is a Hobbesian character. And I like the way USA does cop/detective shows. Looks like I’ll have to find a way to check it out.
