Contra Security, a high-tech security firm that takes extreme - and often questionable - measures to sell its protection services is corporate America's answer to "The A-Team," giving clients a sense of security by first ripping it away. In the opener, Contra's man of mystery owner, Oz, blackmails his newest recruit, computer hacker Cameron, to join his team. Cameron quickly learns that cracking into state-of-the-art security systems is a lot easier than dealing with his co-workers, including the alluring Melanie, prank-pulling Cash and competitive Josh.

Decent first installment (System requirements : Idle-minded, not so serious, techaholic)
7 April 2011 | by igoatabaseSee all my reviews

A weekly dose of humor for geeks. That's how Breaking In could be defined considering its pilot. Approximately 13 reasons to give it a chance. First Christian Slater's performance was good, cool and (Warning : Girls only) xoxo. The boss has it all ! From useless sunglasses to collective rare stuff fans would die hard to get their hands on. Second Odette Yustman, Annable since 2010 but let's pretend she's single and addicted to hardcore gaming, is a pretty face and her character has a wild ulala attitude. Moreover her crazy boyfriend is portrayed by none other than Michael Rosenbaum ! Third even if the format is short (20 minutes) the episode was filled with jokes and even if a running gag felt flat you should laugh at least half of the time. Star Wars impersonation ? Hot schoolgirls by the pool ? Exotic cars ? Password hacking ? The list is not supernatural but I'm sure the writers have plenty of powder under their magic carpet for the upcoming episodes. The fourth excuse to watch it would be the secondary characters. I really liked the creepy crunchy antagonist for example. Fifth and not least element the story was not original but entertaining enough and you should appreciate the way it's slightly twisted to increase the episode rewatchability. All in all it's not a bricks smasher but if you're into oiled gladiators && Sara Tancredi && (mouse head shooting || StarCraft tapping) then sharing a cold glass of lemonade with Breaking In could be the geekotherapy you need.
