BREAKING IN “Tis Better to Have Loved and Flossed” Review

BREAKING IN (FOX) Tis Better to Have Loved and Flossed

BREAKING IN “Tis Better to Have Loved and Flossed” Season 1 Episode 2 – I took a peek at the advance review for this show and I have to agree with Dani that this show is perfect for Christian Slater. He’s always had a kind of frenetic energy about him and I think that is being utilized to a tee in his role as Oz. He bounces around from scene to scene and character to character, dropping a witty line here and a bit of wisdom there and all without getting even the list bit tiring. In fact I found myself missing him whenever he’s not on screen, and that’s saying something considering he’s in most of the scenes.

This show is off to a great start and in this episode we find that Cameron is still pining for Melanie. But both Oz and Cash convince him it’s time to get his mind off the one he can’t have, so he actually goes out and finds himself someone super-nice. Well, that is until she turns out to be Oz’s ex who is just going out with him so that she can find out all about his plan to have the team break into her house and steal dangerous secrets out of the safe.

In the end, Oz and his ex make up (twice apparently) and it looks like we might be seeing more of Amy in the future. But it also means that Cameron is now free to go back to pursuing Melanie. Now I’m of two hearts on that because I like Cameron and think it would be cute if he and Melanie got together, but I also LOVE Michael Rosenbaum as her wacky boyfriend and kinda don’t want those two to break up if that means he’ll be going away anytime soon.

My favorite bits..

Oz describing the shenanigans his team got into that day as “fiddling your diddles.”

Finding out that Oz once played beer pong…erm scotch rifles with Sean Connery. Nice little nod to the fact that Christian once co-starred with Connery.

The fact that Oz was able to have an entire conversation with Cameron using nothing but a flat screen. Now that is a talent.

Cameron describing Melanie’s boyfriend as a sketchy mega-douche. Yep that sounds about right. Is it wrong that I love him anyway?

Cash’s shock when Cameron actually suggested that (gasp!) he go talk to the cute woman at the other table.

Cash not only using the term “tapping the grave”, but also having a dance for it.

Appreciating the colorful way that Oz had of saying big boobs.

The entire team getting their asses handed to them by a “geriatric Fort Knox.”

Barely being able to look at Josh after he lost his eyebrows in the line of duty.

Dutch giving Josh eyebrows. (Okay now I REALLY can’t look at the guy.)

The entire hand-over-the-mouth conversation.

A thumb drive that’s actually a thumb. Brilliant.

Finding out that Dutch thinks that Jason Mraz stole his songs. Ha!
