Breakout Kings is a new series on A&E.

I’ve come to it lately. The basic premise is two US Marshals, put a task force together to track down escape convicts, using convicts. The premise: it takes a con to catch a con.

And a very interesting perspective, by pairing law enforcement with convicts to catch other convicts. The trust needed among the team to catch the bad guys is lacking and is something that is grown as the series develops.

I need to go back and watch it from the beginning, but starting midway in the season has been good. It has caused me to process the actions of the Breakout Kings without knowing their story. Piecing together the how and the why of their lives makes this interesting TV.

Do you watch Breakout Kings? If so, what do you think?

BTW, the show is on A&E in Sundays at 11 pm Eastern, immediately repeated at midnight.
