Stars: Christian Slater, Megan Mullally, Bret Harrison, Alphonso McAuley, Erin Richards, Jennifer Irwin, Odette Annable Writer: Adam F. Goldberg Director: Seth Gordon Network: Fox, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: March 7, 2012 One of the most promising new comedies last Spring was the Christian Slater starrer BREAKING IN on Fox. It’s a series that focused on a security firm run by the brash, unpredictable and enigma-like Oz (Slater) and the wacky employees he has. The series struggled throughout the seven episodes to find the right balance and tone. While I appreciated what the series did, it didn’t bowl me over […]Read On »

When is a show cancelled, but not cancelled? That’s been the mystery behind the Christian Slater comedy BREAKING IN that did pretty good during midseason this year on Fox after AMERICAN IDOL. It wasn’t enough for it to get an official Season 2 renewal, but in recent months, there’s been movement that could bring the series back. Recent extensions on cast contracts have showed that the show has a little bit life left in it, and today at the Summer 2011 Television Critics Association Fox session, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly explained that the show could get an official last […]Read On »

Fox’s half-hour comedy BREAKING IN, trying out a Tuesday slot tonight after a run Wednesdays at 9:30 PM (even though it was canceled last week by Fox), concerns a high-tech security firm that is hired by various companies to evaluate weak points by, per the title, breaking in wherever it can be done. Bret Harrison plays Cameron Price, the firm’s newest hire, who has been more or less blackmailed into taking the gig by the firm’s mysterious boss Oz, played by Christian Slater. In some ways, Cameron and his situation don’t appear too far removed from Portland, Oregon native Harrison’s […]Read On »

Stars: Christian Slater, Bret Harrison, Odette Annable, Alphonso McAuley Writer: Adam F. Goldberg Director: Seth Gordon Network: Fox, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: April 6, 2011 Bret Harrison has been a star in need of an excellent vehicle for his everyman charms and comedic timing. While he was great in the two-season REAPER cult series, it didn’t propel him the way it should have. Throw in a strange stint on the second season of V that was trying to make him the comic relief in a show that was in more need of action, drama and actual sci-fi than comedy, […]Read On »
