Phoenix

Prisoner of Entertainment

So, I got a set of The Prisoner on DVD during Amazon's Black Friday sales, and am finally getting around to watching them.

I was familiar enough with the show, through cultural osmosis, but had never really seen any of it, no more than clips and chunks.

I'll say, I am definitely enjoying it.  I love the 1960s vibe, the at-the-time subversiveness of it.  I can see why it's a cult fave.

The more I watch, the more infuriated I become at just how terrible the 'remake' was a few years ago.  Ugh, that had no right even calling itself The Prisoner. =P
