Review – Breaking In – Pilot (S01Ep01)


 

We get paid to be bad... I'll allow it.

Synopsis:
Cameron Price (Bret Harrison – V, Reaper, The Loop) has Uni all figured out. After hacking the computer system, he has made it his bitch. Along comes ¬†Oz (Christian Slater) and his team at Contra Security (a company that is hired to put security to the test), and Cameron’s life will never be the same again.

This week:
Pilot so a lot of introductions and scene setting. Cameron has to steal an expensive car as his first case while getting constantly harassed about office birthdays and pranked as the newbie. What could possibly go wrong?

Pluses:
OMG LEX LUTHER IN UGG BOOTS!!
Boom goes the dynamite. Awesome pranking.
I’ll allow it.
Sky Mall.
Snappy dialogue.
Heaps of fun.
Good running gags that didn’t lose their impact.
Slater gets to continue his love of all things Star Trek.

Minuses:
A little stereotypical.
Lot of pressure on the case of the week scenario to keep it so engaging.

This was a remarkably enjoyable romp. I will certainly be continuing to catch this. It reminds me a little of Better Off Ted in its style and dialogue.
