Trivia

Bagwell introduced himself as Brett/Brad Benson- either a reference to the Pro Football player (who sells cars in East Brunswick, NJ) or the guard/accomplice Brad Bellick from Prison Break.(Brett Bellick has a similar alliteratory quality to Brad Bellick.) Furthermore, while he drove her car, she called him "Brad". Either or both would make sense here, and be appropriate in this scene, as he's at a sales conference AND escaping prison. See more »

Captivating show!!
28 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

Breakout Kings has to be one of the most well-written shows in past years. The depth of each character is played out with flawless precision. I was a bit skeptical of the show at first, but once I started watching, there was no turning back. Each episode is purely original without any repeating plot structure. Being someone with an interest in neuroscience and psychology, I find the concept of appointing Cons to catch Cons extremely intriguing. Add on the psychological expertise of one of the team members, it becomes gripping to delve into the minds of not only escaped cons, but convicts in general.

I have not seen a show like this on-air since Prison Break, which really was one-dimensional and drew a single story in its multiple seasons on air. Breakout Kings on the other hand is more Prison Break squeezed into each single episode with the story concluding.

Definitely worth a watch!!
