* {{Expy}}: Lloyd is basically [[PrisonBreak T-Bag]], taken down a few notches.
** YMMV. T-bag is a egotistical, psychotic rapist and murderer who has no remorse and speaks with a creepy southern drawl. Lloyd is a certified genius with awful social skills, a crushingly guilty conscience, and a habit of rambling into science speak when nervous. The only similarities is that they are both skinny white convicts with a habit of playing mind games (though this is mostly accidental on Lloyds part) and some serious mommy issues.
** Watching their confrontation in 'The Bag Man' really highlights just how different they are. T-bag is a growling, twisted, wild animal with an abusive childhood and a violent disposition. Lloyd is quiet, calm, and in control of himself, has multiple graduate level degrees and a shrew sense of intelligence.

* CharacterOverlap: In the third episode of the first season [[PrisonBreak T-Bag]] breaks out from Fox River, yet again. An unprecedented case of a character crossing over to a show on a completely different network. The show was originally owned by Fox.
** Not to mention, it was unadvertised; only people who had seen ''Series/PrisonBreak'' would know about the crossover.

** The show also has another seeming team-member cut (i.e. sent back to prison) before the end of the first episode, because he pocketed a knife while they were in a restaurant, apparently planning to escape. The guy shows up in a later episode wherein [[ConsultingAConvictedKiller he aids the team from prison]].
