Breakout Kings

Breakout Kings

It takes a con to catch a con - Driven by the fact that there are few things more dangerous than a prisoner who has just escaped, and tired of following protocol and resorting to outdated methods of law enforcement, veteran U.S. Marshals Charlie Duchamp (Laz Alonso) and Ray Zancanelli (Domenick Lombardozzi) are taking an unorthodox approach to their work: using former fugitives (Jimmi Simpson, Malcolm Goodwin & Serinda Swan) to catch fugitives.

a really great showRating: 2 likes, 0 dislikes

I saw this show listed here on this site, and I was wondering what it was. The first episode I saw was episode 10. And it has got me hooked to the point that I downloaded all previous episodes and don't want to look at all one tome because I'm waiting for episode 11. It's one of the best new shows on tv and the originality of it is great. And the characters are also good. they mesh well together, it's very real. Nuf respect to the creator and A&E for the show.

Breakout Kings provides nice action and a good thrill, but 5 episodes in, it seems like every episode is build about the same. I hope they evolve the back story or bring some differently motivated escapees (not motivated always by revenge). Read more

Breakout Kings has maybe one of the worst casts of any semi-popular tv series out there. Laz Alonso's character is played so generically you'd think it was CGI instead of a human being. Jimmi Simpson is also miscast into this series as the 'board certified psychiatrist'. He's barely 30 years old and claims to be this genious doctor, meanwhile he's only been cast into two bit comedies and bad movies. Every episode is essentially the same as the last. If you were to watch episode 7 before episode 1 or 2 it wouldn't really matter. They should have cancelled the series after episode 6. Read more

2x10: Served Cold recap: The episode begins, and a worried Ray is on the phone, placing orders that he wants the NYPD, the FBI, and all the forces to search for his daughter as Damien has kidnapped her. Max is still in the office. Ray is pissed at Lloyd as Lloyd lured Damien so close, that Damien kidnapped his daughter. Lloyd asks Ray to be calm as his reactions would determine the fate of this case. Erica finds a note in Theresa’s id. There are some co-ordinates written on it and its in Damien’s handwriting. Just then Jules informs ray that the cops are on their way to take Max. But Ray doesn’t want Max to go, because if Max leaves then the trio will go back to prison; and he needs them now. They hide Max in the bathroom... read more.

2x9: Freakshow recap: The episode begins at the Souza –Baranowski correctional center, where a reporter is reporting about an interview with Max Morris, the famous escape artist, who is serving his sentence for setting fire to a circus in Pittsville. After escaping from two other centers, Max was finally brought this one. Max is considered to be the most violent and uncontainable inmate in the State’s history; but now after two decades of silence, Max has agreed for his first interview. Chained and masked, Max is brought into the room, but as soon as the reporter asks the first question as to why didn’t he defend himself against the charges, Max pulls out something from his sleeves and connects a small wire to it; sort of like completing a circuit... read more.

2x8: Seald Fate recap: The episode begins at Wabash River Parkway, where an inmate is complaining that he has to cut dry weed for no pay.

The prisoner swims across to the opposite bank and the officers open fire at him; but he escape. The trio arrives at the office. Lloyd tells Jules that her pen gesture was a tad cryptic. She tells him that she does have feelings for him but not the way he thinks; she considers him as a friend. Lloyd is upset.
