There’s so much to like about this series, and now it’s more easily accessible than ever, available on DVD through A&E Home Video. Currently there are four sets available, totalling eight DVDs and 14 episodes. The final set with the remaining episodes will be released in October. The best price available seems to be from DeepDiscountDVD.
There is a “Prisoner Appreciation Society” (linked above) as well as a conference held on the island in North Wales that the show was filmed. There is quite a following for the show; in fact, The Simpsons recently referenced The Prisoner (pretty heavily) in one of their episods, and even got Patrick McGoohan to do a guest voice spot. It would do you good to hunt down some episodes of this incredibly creative show… I’m glad that Dave lent me his videos in college, or else I would have never known anything about “Number Six.”
Be seeing you… -ram
