    Did anyone else watch this? I had high hopes, I love the guy that was on Reaper and well I was a Christian Slater fan lol.

    My favorite line from the whole episode was when we first meet Christian Slater's character and he says "Greetings and Salutations......." *Swoon* That was his line from Heathers.

    I have to admit that when he said that I actually squeeled a little bit. Heathers is my favorite movie of all time and where my love for Slater began! Was happy for the shout out. I heard they might do a few Pump Up The Volume ones too. :)

    I am glad I am not the only one. Heathers is in my top 10 movies and I almost died when he said I had to go back just to make sure I heard it right!

    I thought last night's episode was ridiculously predictable but I still enjoyed it.

    I'll definitely keep watching. :up:

    Squeeded? ugh. I don't think I have ever done that in my entire life, including when I was 5 years old.

    Seriously, you just Ugh'd me for that? :rolleyes::rolleyes:
    I'm sorry for you that nothing in life is exciting enough to warrant that reaction. For me this was.

    Yeah, I think someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning! :)

    The line got a laugh out of me... but I have to confess Pump Up the Volume is what came to mind rather than Heathers. Oops!

    I have to admit that the storyline was a tad predictable (who didn't know that Alyssa Milano was a spy) but the cast works well and Slater's bringing good mojo.

    Breaking In scored a 2.8 in 18-49 and while that's 0.1 higher than the premier of Happy Endings, it's one hell of a drop off from Idol's 7.1 rating.

    Maybe this would work better paired with Raising Hope.

    I loved that line. As soon as I heard it (I wasn't really paying attention when it first started) I did a sort of "Wait what" double take. Then I put it up as my facebook status hoping someone would reply to it, either in reference to Heathers or Breaking In. Christian lost a little bit of respect from me when he said Eye-talian though...we're not from Eye-taly.
    God, I haven't watched Heathers in at least 10 years...I'll have to keep an eye out for it to show up on Instant.

    ETA, I kinda wish they would have opened the pilot with the Greetings and Salutations line.

    There isn't much that will retain Idol's audience. I think 2.8 is going to make it a lock for a renewal order.

    I don't necessarily disagree with you but:

    1. we're not network executives.
    2. we're not network executives at Fox.

    Look up what happened to The Single Guy on NBC.

    I fixed it. Sorry, guess I shouldn't try to do two things at once. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Well I guess someone doesn't know how to have fun and enjoy things! Sounds a lot like my sister. Joanna is that you??? lol.

    Hopefully someday something makes sieglinde happy enough to squeel in happiness!

    Yeah, bout...
    Perfect post..


    I liked this show.. I must say that I didn't squeal, but that might be because I have never seen this movie Heathers.

    I'd heard about this show on a SMALLVILLE website, since apparently Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor) is somehow connected to it.

    Is he in every episode, or was it a one-time appearance?

    I think he was a guest star in the pilot episode.

    Edit: nope, he's appeared in both episodes that have aired so far. He's not a member of the main cast, however.
