The Prisoner series

This is the series that was preceded by the Danger Man/Secret Agent Man series of shows. The Prisoner was a relatively short series that followed the story of one man who was captured in order to find out "information." That man became known as #6 and spent the series trying to escape and outwit those who ran The Village.

Although the technology is dated now, the show is still of excellent quality, interesting and intense. What I will be doing here is writing reviews, sometime with spoilers (so be warned!) about each of the episodes.
