I wish they'd cleaned up the prints

by Stuart on 8/2/2012

This is completely watchable, but I wish for the Collector's Edition they'd cleaned up the prints a little better. The special features are OK, nothing special. All in all, this is a decent edition of "The Prisoner," but it could have been a lot better. Read More

Editors Note
Note So far as its legions of fans are concerned, THE PRISONER was the most fascinating and intellectually challenging sci-fi/fantasy program ever put on the air. Produced in England, the series was the brainchild of actor Patrick McGoohan, who also played the central character. During the opening credits, an unidentified McGoohan is seen angrily resigning his unspecified high-level government job, only to be promptly drugged, kidnapped, and spirited off to a mysterious, Orwellian community known only as The Village. Though allowed to freely roam the colorful grounds of his new home (which resembled a lavish seaside resort, coupled with a garish amusement pier), the protagonist--now referred to only as "Number Six"--could not escape, lest he be chased down and killed by a huge, balloonlike sphere known as a Rover. In each 60-minute episode, Number Six was confronted by "the new Number Two," whose job it was to extract vital information from our hero (though just what sort of information was never explained). Defiantly shouting "I am not a number! I am a free man!", Number Six succeeded in confounding the efforts by Number Two--and the never-seen Number One--to break him down. Throughout his bizarre and often hallucinatory adventures, Number Six learned two valuable lessons: to stubbornly maintain his individuality at all times and all costs, and to trust absolutely no one. This collection includes every episode from the entire series.
