'Breaking In's' back from the dead

After Fox canceled "Breaking In" last May, entertainment president Kevin Reilly almost immediately started talking about how maybe the show would come back. Fast forward 10 months, and an unlikely second season of the Christian Slater comedy is here!

Tuesday night's premiere introduced Megan Mullally into the mix (sort of a deja vu on how she replaced Jane Lynch in the second season of "Party Down").

Mullally's already brought her special brand of scene-stealing to "Breaking In," and it's basically the same show, minus a few cast members from last year (we'll miss you, Michael Rosenbaum!) and what seems to be more of a focus on the office than the client of the week for Contra Security.

The core trio of Cameron, Melanie (Odette Annable, pulling double duty with "House") and Cash were suspicious of Mullally's new receptionist, Veronica. They thought Oz must be preparing to sell the company.

When it turns out they're right, and Veronica may be their new boss, it's too late for Cash's exercise ball prank: "I rigged her damn hippity-hop!"

The three of them didn't exactly take to the idea, and when Cameron hacked into Veronica's computer, they found themselves potentially out of a job. So this time, the group had to break into the company that was going to buy the firm to prove they were worth buying.

So, they saved their job, but were stuck with Veronica as the boss. It will be interesting to see how Oz reacts to having to answer to someone, but more than anything else, I'm looking for episodes spotlighting Cash. He's still our beloved geek (things like the "Tron" arcade game still permeate the show), and this week's references included "Transformers" and "Harry Potter." Let's hope he gets the chance to shine again soon.

In short, now that we've established Veronica as being in charge, let's get back to (more or less) the show we remember from last year.

    Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. You don't need to set aside large chunks of time for exercise to reap weight-loss benefits. If you can't do an actual workout, get more active throughout the day in simple ways.'::*

  2. Love love LOVE the show!!

    I was livid when the show was canceled! Couldn't figure out why it was canceled. Not at all happy that Megan is now on the show. Her personality doesn't mix well with the others. I'm thrilled!

    No, No. No. Big fan of Megan. Get her her own show. She does not belong in Christians venue. He is really bringing the best of his past characters, Season 1. Megan pushes him to the background. Stop! Stop! Stop!

    It was my favorite show! So incredibly glad it was resurrected! It's still my favorite show! The characters ROCK! Yeah, bummer Michael Rosenbaum is gone because he brought in different and additionally positive dynamic for the show.

    Love the show but not crazy about Megan Mullally character hoping she doesn't last too long. I thought Michael Rosenbaum's character was hilarious too bad he is no longer with the show. Glad it's back not much elese to watch on TV these days.

    So glad they brought it back, but I am sad they didnt include Michael Rosenbaum cause his character was one of the best things apart of this show. If they can find a good time slot for this show, it could and should take off

    Thank God it's back! This show is amazing and totally deserves to be on TV. Let's hope it can get more viewers so we don't have to suffer the cancellation heartbreak again.
