Welcome to your Home from Home.  
AMC has made all 17 episodes of Patrick McGoohan's classic series, The Prisoner, available online.

This series is required viewing for anyone who's ever ...

Well, for anyone.


Especially in this day and age.

I am not a number!
I am a free man!

What about for those of us who have already seen them and can quote the show at some length? Can I get away with a refresher course and just thumb through my copy of GURPS The Prisoner a couple times? :D

Also, um... do I even want to know how the recent remake was? Hit me with the truth, but hit me gently... :/

The recent remake was... well... recently remade.

Ian McKellan put in a stellar performance as #2, but the story itself was kind of lacking.

Besides, what if some of us actually like being a number! _Σ:D

Are you really certain that it has inter-zeitgeist appeal?

I think it's even more relevant now than it was 43 years ago.

Hell, I think it's moved from "surrealist allegory" to "plausible realism" in that time.

There are sixteen more hours of braindancing if you follow the link!

I did indeed, when it came out.

I actually didn't get a chance to see the WHOLE series until a couple of years later.

I can't view the show on the AMC site, but I can view it when you embed it.

That IS interesting. I'd embed the other 16, but I don't know if I should spam my journal like that.
