Show isn't bad. I like the old skill hip hop. Week 1 was Gangstarr...week 2 was Mobb Deep.

Cancelled. Sad. :(

Great show. A real shame it got cancelled. At least it went out on a high!

It is a spinoff from "Prison Break" and it has a basic premise that is actually good as it assigns convicts to catch other escaped convicts making every episode "catch the prison breakers". There is even a guest appearance by Robert Knepper (T-Bag) in the third show of the first season that is easily the best show in the series. The cast is rounded and consist of the "usual suspects" that make the ensemble "rounded". Jason Behr has an intriguing recurring role as a crazy psychopath / serial killer bastard. Surprise death in the cast shakes up the formula a little bit when the show starts to stale. Sadly, every episode are built up the same - a criminal escapes from prison and the group has to catch him and there is some scenes with personal issues with one of the members that has to be sorted out. This make the show feel it has predictable writing for many of it's stand alone episodes. Unresolved open ending too.

I am really disappointed this was cancelled. I have enjoyed the 2 seasons it had.

Not as good as "Prison Break" but still good. "Breakout Kings" renewed for a second season: http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2011/07/06/aes-breakout-kings-renewed-for-a-second-season/97362/

I have to say it's sh!t loads better than Chase; not sure if it'll make an S2 pickup but here's hoping!
