    The original cast are great and funny enough for the show to not deserve its cancellation, but Mulally really does ruin every scene shes in, playing basically the exact same character as Karen but here shes just out of place and annoying. Also she brings with her an assistant who is not as bad but turns half the script into taking the piss out of her accent.

    Breaking in Season One wasn't a stand out program, it offered small laughs and some nice characters at best. In the latter 2 or 3 shows though it began to find some form, the episodes got better and Dutch became a more like-able guy, it was starting to work. ....I was shocked to see Season Two beginning other day and even more shocked to see it was being transformed.

After the first episode i have to wonder why they bothered, what little enjoyability there was looks to be gone for now. Mullally has arrived and instantly made herself incredibly annoying, sticking herself right in your face with her marmite voice and brash dialogue. ....With Dutches dissapearance only slightly explained, the disguise guy completely missing and Melanie being a part time character im not sure where the success can come from, and how we will cope with whats left.....One thing for sure though, Oz will continue to please with Christian Slaters great performance.

    Saddled with stars who neither clash nor click, breaking In appears to be broken. [19 Mar 2012, p.46]

    Mullally is certainly another reason to watch the show, but her presence also works to solve another problem: cast dynamics.

    It doesn't seem to know who it wants to focus on or what it wants to do (the security missions, such as they are, are unexceptional afterthoughts).
