Michael Scofield is long dead, but his legacy lives on. A new generation of criminals are routinely thinking up ways of breaking out of Prison. To catch these dangerous criminals, US Marshal Charlie Duchamp (formerly of the Marshal's CPA, a desk job due to a congenital heart defect) resurrects an idea put in place by disgraced former Marshal Ray Zancanelli, using cons adept at escape to catch other cons. They bring in Shea Daniels, a former gang leader and smuggler, Lloyd Lowery a former child prodigy and criminal behaviorist and Erica Reed an expert tracker who learned everything she knows from her late Bounty Hunter father. Joining the team is Julianne Simms a former student at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center who excelled until she washed out due to various psychological disorders. Two other cons were chosen (Philly a con woman and Gunderson an expert tracker) but they were sent back to Prison after attempting escapes.

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".

In the third eoipsode of this new show Breakout Kings, we are re-introduced to T-Bag--the most notorious character from a show that ended a few seasons ago called Prison Break. He has once again escaped from prison and the Breakout Kings are called upon to bring him back home, not before he has gone on a killing spree with shades of his criminal past exacting retribution for a crime that will begin to bring light to his upbringing. Overall another very solid episode and I am hoping that they continue to bring in characters from previous complementary shows as it is quite additive and exciting. The show continued to improve and will be interesting to see what they have next for us.

I was skeptical when I first caught Breakout Kings - it had Dominic Lombardozzi, a hero of mine who played Herc on The Wire (perhaps the greatest police procedural ever made), but not that much else. I was in for a real surprise.

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!

Breakout Kings is a flawed but fun show with some witty dialogue (mostly Lloyd based). While the show will never win any Emmy's (especially with the announcement that A&E is cancelling the show), it's worth following for the evolution of the characters. Season One of Breakout Kings is good, but season 2 is where the characters really begin to flourish. Unfortunately, the show will not get the chance to finish telling their tales since Season 3 was now renewed. However, we can always revisit the beginning and watch the journey of each character with fresh eyes thank to the DVD set.

The show gets 5 starts for the casting of Jimmi Simpson as Dr. Lloyd Lowery, as he is one of the best characters that A&E has ever had the privilege to host. Simpson does a wonderful job of making the Lowery character that juxtaposition between socially awkward and perfectly lovable. He bring humor to a character who lives with a dark burden. So 5 starts to breakout Kings for this one character alone.

That being said, the DVD set review almost lost a star because it could *always* use more Jimmi Simpson. But I would say that there is a fair amount of deleted and extended scenes and featurettes that make buying the boxed set worth the money to anyone who enjoyed the show enough to own it and explore it a bit further. Or for anyone who wants more Teabag. At the Amazon.com price, the boxed set comes with extras and is the same price - or cheaper - than paying per digital episode.

I've never seen Prison Break, but that does not lesson my enjoyment of this show. Not all of the characters are really strong, but for me Lloyd makes up for all of them. The show is serious and deals with difficult subject matters but does have some humor. The one thing that makes it sometimes hard to watch is that some of the convicts they are hunting down have sympathetic stories, makes you hope they get away.
