Review - Breaking In Season 1 Epiosde 7 21.0 Jump Street

There it is, the series finale of Breaking In. After only seven episodes the show is gone forever (unless those rumors floating around at correct, though I surely wouldn't hold out hope), and I'll miss it. Breaking In is unique and very, very weird in self-acknowledging sort of way. "21.0 Jump Street" is a perfect example of how the show operates. It takes a situation, high school cyber-bullying, and spins it into something really silly, overblown, and ultimately, funny. There are exaggerated high school stereotypes, the nerd jokes, and a wrong but somehow right handling of the bully, humiliating him more than the bullied kid. There's some unrealistic about the show, with Dutch still acting crazy and Oz with God-like abilities, but there is always something relatable under there.

Score: 8.8/10
