Well after seeing episode 3 and the return of T-Bag I think they just made a bleep on a lot of people's radar... but can the show retain people?
This is obviously no "Prison Break" or any where near that level. I think getting rid of that girl from the pilot was a great move, she didn't really fit.
Favorite character: Lloyd Lowery (the "child prodigy"). For one the actor is good and the character is cool. He really stands out amongst a bunch of so-so characters.
Least favorite: Sean "Shea" Daniels (The ciminal black guy)... "da gangsta"... I guess I can't really believe this character... he seems like 1 in a million, why did they need him on the special team of talented crooks working for the law? They need to write him out and replace him with someone else with "unique skills". The actor is just not very interesting either.
The rest of the cast is ok. I like that the bosses have these flaws like one who's got a heart condition and the other who also happens to be prisoner on parole but the team doesn't know about it. The girl being the daughter of a U.S. Marshal with "tracking skills" but with a bad temper is kinda far fetched but I guess it can be worked with.
Something that is going to get old real fast is the whole dynamic of the team members stepping on each others toes and trying to prove they belong on the team to each other. They need to figure out their fields of expertise and shine at it real fast... and be recognized for it by the team and the bosses. The petty bickering over who made the right guess is not making the characters likeable. The skillsets need to become clearer, Lloyd is the psychology guy, Erica is the tracker... Sean needs to get lost and replaced by someone more specialized.
Overall I think the show's concept has potential... establishing it as being in the "Prison Break" universe continuity is very cool. I'd just love to see C-Note or Linc again.
