[Archived] The Prisoner

Eeeh that takes me back Yoda. Bloody great series till McGoohan fell out with the director, wrote the last 4 episodes himself and left us all completely befuddled. Lots of weird stuff including surrealism, mind control, who is Number 1 and the sinister and shadowy community enforcer with the BRFC connection...... 'Rover'.

Great stuff for anybody with imagination ..... but thats not something that was shared by all. 40 years on it's just the same with 'muggles' and Harry Potter stories.

It amazed me that it was always sunny in Portmerion where the series was filmed yet everyone knows it rains in Wales for 365 days of the year.

I loved the Prisoner and other series such as the Avengers. Britain still had the confidence to produce classy stuff like that back in the 1960s.

Althought the Simpsons Spoof was spot on. "I told you it was a stupid idea to use a balloon"

A great series and also a great advert on why you shouldn't take LSD

you mean like, don't eat cheese before going to sleep because it gives you nightmares?

Bring it on!

Portmerion is definitely worth a visit , though - very unusual place .

Agree. Very unusual & very beautiful


It's a bit commercialised on this web site, but it's well worth a visit.
