The Prisoner

The Prisoner was one of those shows that totally messed me up when I was a kid. I wasn’t sure if I understood it-but then I don’t think Anyone ever really understood it. And that was it’s draw and charm. Well, The Prisoner is getting a “reboot”. It’s been updated and Jim Cavieziel and Ian McKellan starring. I think I will be hooked!

    Hi. I only just joined WordPress today. Saw your blog on The Prisoner new series. I’m a big fan of the old one and can’t wait for the new. Of course I have some reservations about various changes but the series has to be brought up to date, I guess. One thing I wanted to ask you is; I want to view the old episodes from amctv.com but, living in England, I don’t think its poss. U know any ways round this? BTW, I live about an hour’s drive from Portmerion where the 60s series was filmed and have visited a few times. U ever get there?

    I was hugely disappointed by the reboot & I desperately wanted it to be good since I’m a such a fan of the original, I go on about it in the following
