Suspenseful storylines and fascinating characters drive this riveting new series from the creators of Prison Break. To help capture dangerous fugitives, two veteran federal marshals, Duchamp and his volatile Partner Zancanelli, recruit three convicts who are master escape artists themselves. Lloyd leads the way as the genius with a wickedly sarcastic sense of humor and a talent for predicting behavior. Joined by street-smart "entrepreneur" Shea, and sexy, expert tracker Erica, these Breakout Kings are out to prove it takes a con to catch a con.

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 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.
