Breakout Kings: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Breakout Kings: Season 1 (2011)




Critic Consensus: Breakout Kings is a show that likes to take risks, but the execution is flat and other elements don't stand out from the rest of the procedural pack.

An exciting crime drama that adds to its appeal with some character types we don't often see.

A&E's Breakout Kings is a terrific log-line in search of an actual premise.

Silly? Yes. Intensely watchable? Also yes.

Breakout Kings is distinctly average fare, quickly smothering the fun from its alluring premise.
