Breakout Kings (Season 1) DVD



Now renewed for its second season, “BREAKOUT KINGS” follows some unconventional partners working to catch convicts on the run. Driven by the fact that there are few things more dangerous than a prisoner who has just escaped and tired of following protocol, veteran U.S. Marshals Charlie DuChamp (Laz Alonso) and Ray Zancanelli (Domenick Lombardozzi) are taking an unorthodox approach to their work: using former fugitives to catch fugitives. If they agree to help, the fugitives’ sentences will be reduced for each escaped convict they bring in. However, if any of them should try to escape themselves their sentences will be doubled. Will the “BREAKOUT KINGS” wait for their freedom, or will they go on the run themselves? 

Without ever seeing this television show before I thought it would be similar to Prision Break but much to my surprise they werent actually trying to break out, instead they are working to help capture criminals in order to get time knocked off their sentence.  Each episode keeps you wondering what will happen next and really leaves you in suspense.  I would have to say my favorite episode is the third one on the first disc because it features a character from Prision Break (Robert Kneeper) and guess who he stars as?  Yept, the one and only Theodore "T Bag" Bagwell(just like on Prision Break)!  

So far I have watched the first two discs,  so I still have two more discs left to watch because the set comes with four DVD's. The Breakout Kings Season 1 DVD's contain a total of 572 minutes of entertainment,  so they will keep you entertained for quite a while!  

Special Features:
  • Audio Commentaries
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Good Cons, Bad Cons
  • Bullpen Sessions
  • T Bag: Dealt a Bad Hand
The second season of Breakout Kings began on March 3rd so be sure to tune in to see the rest of the second season.

Sounds like this might be worth watching. I never seen the show Prison Break so I would have nothing to compare it to.
