DRAMA

Playing a U.S. marshal whose job is to keep people in the Witness Protection Program squirreled away from criminals, Mary McCormack (The West Wing) looks authentically hardened, stressed and sleep-deprived. As would you if you were Mary Shannon: Any given day brings corpses, overwrought families and her own annoyingly twittering mother (Lesley Ann Warren). The show is a solid, unadorned piece of work—I like that the marshal hasn’t been made softer or more sympathetic by being saddled with neuroses. Special note to Cristián de la Fuente fans: He can be found here, only not doing the samba, as McCormack’s boyfriend.
