"There's not been another series quite like the peculiarly plotted and sinisterly oppressive world of The Prisoner. The hero Patrick McGooghan's backstory is almost as impenetrable as the reasons behind his kidnapping and relocation to 'The Village.' As such, we're kept guessing with each tantalizing morsel of new information."

"Patrick McGoohan as Number Six This great show was the brainchild of genius Patrick McGoohan. Many great writers and an excellent cast helped to make this a memorable limited series."

"A great show. Patrick McGoohan took his "Secret Agent Man" character and placed him is a classic late-60s psychedelic trip. Poked fun at a lot of British mores and late-60s Western society in general."

"S03-E01: Olivia In the alternate universe, we see an old-fashioned penny-farthing bicycle, the kind with a big front wheel and a small back wheel. These bicycles were used as a symbol in the British TV series The Prisoner. That series also featured several episodes where the Prisoner, Number Six, is brainwashed and reprogrammed, and where he encounters counterparts to people that he knows. "

Escape is nearly impossible as "The Village" has amazing but deadly weapons to use if a"

Come in No.6, your time is up! (13 tv items)

"McGoohan not only produced 'The Prisoner', he also wrote, directed and starred in that show.
