BREAKING IN “21.0 Jump Street” (Season Finale) Review

BREAKING IN (FOX) 21.0 Jump Street

BREAKING IN “21.0 Jump Street” Episode 7 (Season Finale) – Earlier this week I reviewed another TV show that had already been cancelled and felt a little sad. I’m doing my best not to even go there when I think about Breaking In, because I love it too much and truly think my life will end if it doesn’t come back.

Okay, maybe I’m stretching that a bit, but I will be really, really upset.

In tonight’s episode the team gets a case that sends them all back to high school to help a dweeb who is the victim of cyber-bullying. It gives everyone a chance to briefly re-write their own high school history – Dutch tries not to be a bully, Mel gets to be a popular cheerleader, Cam overcomes his nerd status, Cash doesn’t show up in a Transformers costume, and Josh doesn’t wear eyeliner. Overall it was a bang-up job by everyone.

Cam even runs into an old high school classmate who still has a crush on him and gets asked out to Prom. In the end he feels better about the whole Mel business and ready to move on. That was Oz’s plan all along of course (nothing happens by chance with that man around), but seeing the looks that Mel was giving Cam and his new squeeze on the dance floor, I’m not so sure she felt as happy for him.

So here’s hoping we get more Breaking In. At this point I’d be willing to watch it as a web series, anything, just so long as I get to see Oz and the gang again.

My favorite bits..

Dutch freaking out like a complete fanboy at the sight of Mike Tyson.

Tyson holding off from hitting Dutch because he needed every brain cell. Har.

Finding out that a human centipede was part of Oz’s evil plans to keep his team in line.

Cash making Cam’s confession his ring tone…..and wondering where I can get it.

*WHEN* Breaking In comes back (because there is no *if* in my vocabulary when it comes to this show) I vote for Dutch to be sweaty and shirtless at least once per episode. I’m just sayin’.

Oz claiming that ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ was based on his life.

Cam took care of one of those Nigerian scammers? I love him even more now than I did before.

Cash showing up to his first day of high school in a Transformers costume.

Wait. Everyone is surprised that Dutch was a bully? I do like that he didn’t realize it though and thought everyone was laughing at his jokes. Aw.

Oh no…..please no……Cam did not say “Wazzuuuupp!” – did he? Okay he lost a few points from the Nigerian thing. I still love him though, just maybe not quite as much.

“What’s he doing with that tushy paddle?”

AHHHH!!! Oh sorry, the close-up of that butt in those shorts caught me a little off guard, that’s all. *composes self*

Dutch fighting his inner-bully.

Is it wrong that I totally want a Contra Security Snuggie now?

“That’s not menacing, you look constipated.”

“Dammit! I just bought this trapper keeper.”

Why does it not surprise me that Dutch knows how to break dance?

“Focus Lesley! She’s talking about making sexy!”

Aw, Cam got asked out to Prom.

Cash’s brain practically shutting down when Dutch asked what about him was duche-y.

“This is a mistake! You can’t make me Prom King. That can is loaded with three weeks of my pee!”

Okay now I want “It’s my weiner!” as my ringtone too.

Dutch asking Cam if he felt his junk during their manly hug. SOOO many dirty jokes, so little time.

Uh..oh. Melanie did not look pleased about Cam’s kiss on the dance floor.

Oz (and me) finding it adorable that Cam still asks how Oz does things like get his high school yearbook.

Dammit! DVR cut out right then. Oh well, I hope nothing huge happened in the last few seconds. If it did, y’all would tell me, right? RIGHT??

What did you think of this episode of Breaking In? Will your life be over if it never comes back, too? Do you think I’m a little too obsessed with this show? It’s okay, you can tell me, I can take it.

      Again, let me apologize profusely for my error and not recognizing a character I’ve never actually seen before. I offered up another commenter my blood so…hmmm…..would you like my head on a pike? I think I can do that. Just gimme a second to get the axe….  *runs off*

    man it looks like the move to tuesday was to sudden for people to care watching it. only got around 3.2 million viewers. which means most likely that Fox won’t give it a 2nd chance after all =(

       Oh no, really? I actually had heard that but I was still really hoping they might still do it. Did they really think that moving it would HELP the situation? Because it looks like it only hindered it. Sigh. 

      • Frederik

        i think the reason they moved it was they wanted to see if it had as many viewers if it was not behind American Idol (or whatever crappy reality show it comes after)

    • Pat

      Frankly, I think people did not know it had been moved! I found out by accident, so was able to tape it, but I think others were not so fortunate. Fox is in the doghouse with me over canceling this show. My life will not be over, but I am very sad.

    VOLTRON. Know what you’re writing about.

      Wow, you guys really take my mistake ultra seriously. Okay, okay, I’ll go sacrifice myself to the geek gods now. Will my blood be enough of an apology? No? Darn, I’m kinda all out of ideas….

        Well Moki, I thought it was a Transformers thing too and I’m not even sure what Voltron is so there. If you’re watching Breaking In, I don’t think you’re expected to know all the pop culture references, that’s what discussions of the show are for :)

    I really like the show too and I’m sad it’s chances are so grim. I wish TNT had picked it up because it would be a great companion show for Leverage.

    +1 on the Voltron thing…… awesome show….hate to see it go….. Fox is retarded…. i also miss my own worst enemy :(  

  • http://www.daemonstv.com/ Sandie

     Ok so I looked into it, because after all why stay ignorant and according to Wikipedia, “Voltron is the titular super robot of an anime series that features a team of young pilots, known as the Voltron Force.” 

    Bonus: Voltron Force is coming to Nicktoons in June 2011.

    So now we know :)

      Thank you Sandie! Now we know, and that’s just another notch I can add to my geek belt.  ;o)

    I loved Cam’s look – can I call it Goth? And, the reaction from Patty when she saw him like that! So funny!

    So love this show, crying that it is gone…..
