Prisoner, The (1967)

Prisoner_smWatch this one while you can. Crackle is expiring it December 1. The Prisoner remains unique in the world of television: a taut psycho-thriller about a secret agent who retires and finds himself thrown into a Kafka-esque world of mindplay and enigma – a man known only as No. 6. A major cult following has built up around this extraordinary series one of the most inventive and ground-breaking ever produced. Multi-talented and twice winner of an Emmy, Patrick McGoohan who stars, also created and produced the series and wrote and directed many of the episodes.

One thought on “Prisoner, The (1967)”

  1. GREAT description of “The Prisoner”. ~This was one of my most favorite shows when I was exactly eight years old, (1968). I knew I was watching something so strange and utterly weird. It was like “PeeWee’s Playhouse” must have been in the 90’s for a some young kids, but with a bit more English polish to it, to understate it.
    Bravo! for summing an almost unexplainable, inexplicable show.
