Breakout Kings is set in the same continuity as Prison Break, even going so far as to feature an episode in which T-Bag (Robert Knepper) escapes from Fox River to exact revenge on people who assaulted his ailing mother.
This show is perfect for fans of shows like "Prison Break", "White Collar" and "Leverage".
The show is surprisingly intelligent - following a group of US Marshals that through a new program enlist the help of several convicts who are very good at breaking out of jail. They leverage their abilities and the Marshal Service's tech and resources to catch the bad guys. For each bad guy they help catch, they get a month off of their sentence - so the harder the work and the faster they catch them, the better off they are.
However, being on the outside has its temptations - any one of them could make a break for it - but if they do, they all will go down to maximum security facilities with full sentences reinstated. So they have a reason to keep each other honest - or as honest as any convict can be.
The dynamic between the cops and cons is great, particularly Jimmi Simpson who portrays Dr. Lloyd Lowery, a former child prodigy and a behaviorist with a bachelor's degree and M.D. from Harvard. He provides in-depth psychological evaluations of escaped convicts, which allow him to predict the movements and actions that an escaped convict may undertake before they get away. And he provides an element of humor that keeps this show just this side of serious - he's a pleasure to watch and my favorite character.
Check it out if you haven't - I bet you'll be pleasantly surprised!
I would love another season of this great program, but television networks seem intent on canceling the best shows. Thank goodness for DVD.
The Breakout King is a show about cons and cops being brought together to find fugitives. It has a lot of twists and turns burired in it, and it has been a really insightful program into the heart of stereotypes, felons, and more. You have a brain that has a little problem with the money, some brawn that has problems with a few things, and you have a con artist that has a silver tongue and an inability to get away from all those pretty opprotunities. On top of that you have the two guys that head up the organization and you have the computer lady that heads it up. It sounds like it wouldn't be the grand thing it is but, honestly, it caught me by surprise. A lot of that has to do with the hunted and not just the hunters, too.
As far as the hunted, these are the Mcbaddies that run and not some jokes. That means you see depravity on the screen and see the people that truly need to be hunted. I was glad about that because I did not my time wasted. That, and I could not understand why these guys would be needed if someone simply skipped bail and ran for the border.
Another thing about the show is the writing. While you have a lot of shows that rely on some little jokes and a few twists, this keeps you coming back.Read more ›
