It wasn't bad... a bit on the cheesy side, but it IS television...  Looking forward to seeing what changes.  (I have season one ripped to dvd)

Yeah, will be interesting regardless. Whatever article I read said Fox ordered 13 episodes.

Re: "Breaking In" Pentest Sitcom

IMDB shows the 13 slots / dates, and episode names for the first 5:

Interesting. I'll give it another shot. At least it was entertaining and did not contain CSI anywhere in the title.

me too, as long as you dont expect heavy "geektalk" and see it as "mindless entertainment" you should be able to enjoy it...

Re: "Breaking In" Pentest Sitcom

I was a bit skeptical about the series when I first heard about it, but I really enjoyed the series and can't wait for season 2 :)

The only downside I can see is that I can't watch it online or on tv here in the UK.

Re: "Breaking In" Pentest Sitcom

I started watching "Breaking In" on Hulu this season and I think it's pretty good.  Definitely not my fave show, but I've faved it on Hulu to know when new eps are released.

But it looks like the show is in danger again...

Re: "Breaking In" Pentest Sitcom

Season 2 is definitely not as awesome as Season 1, it's like it has lost a lot of its magic :-/ Furthermore, it's almost as if they don't want the viewers to keep their hopes up for better episodes, as it seems to be going downwards. It's less and less about actual jobs they're going to do, and more and more, about the problems internally at the office which is in my humble opinion, a bit boring in the long run.

On occasion I think it's fine, but the last couple of episodes if not all of Season 2, has so far been about internal problems at the office instead of some of the great jobs / gigs featured in Season 1.

I hoped for a better (or great) episode a couple of days ago, only to see that they're having a shorter break :-/ Out with the new boss, in with the old, the new boss's assistant should be moved to the team imho, that would improve things a bit.

Re: "Breaking In" Pentest Sitcom

They've definitely jumped the shark with the second season. The first season was moderately clever and hackerish, the second is just a stupid office sitcom. It also appears to have indeed been canceled again:

The series wasn't as bad, the first season, but they dumbed it down too much, now, and it's just doesn't have enough "broad" appeal.  (Both seriously, and as a play of words, on the female role  :P )

Re: "Breaking In" Pentest Sitcom

That sucks, at least they could finish second season and make it more hackerish like the first season :-)

Re: "Breaking In" Pentest Sitcom

Well its Fox, it took them 3 cancellations of Family Guy before they realized they had a gold mine.  Maybe if SyFy (I hate writing it like that it seems... wrong...) picked it up and added more geek to it, it might do well.  Maybe they are just not throwing in enough buzz words :D  They need to use APT or Cyberwar more often.  That is sure to sell it!
