Good concept well-executed for the most part
18 March 2014 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed Bret Harrison's last outing in Reaper, and so wanted to see if he could make this enjoyable as well. It didn't hurt that Christian Slater also had a major role as well.

Slater is the boss of a company that specialises in breaking into secure systems and locations to test out security systems and protocols. Bret Harrison is the young computer genius who is recruited into the company. The show is fun because the many oddballs who work in the company, or rather, the characters who have quirky habits. It's fun, and funny, to see how they break into companies, computer systems, and sometimes act as 'security escorts' for all manner of items.

There are few serious moments - this is a comedy after all. But they do add gravitas to a series that depend on madcap capers on its success. And some of those capers are really ingenious.

For the tech-oriented, or even those who are not but are not totally tech-clueless, this is a very enjoyable series. It's just too bad it was cancelled after just 2 seasons. There seemed more fun ahead with new characters brought onboard.
