  • Part 2.

    Part 2 of The Prisoner (episodes 3 and 4) transforms from a series with an eerie, science fiction feel to a largely political-based ideology and is nothing more than anti-communistic propaganda at its finest. The Prisoner tries to disguise its intention with Lost-esque flashbacks and time jumps, but the viewers sees right through these illusions and realizes the true meaning of the show.

    Our hero Number 6 has gone from a likable, Patrick Henry-esque leader to someone simply determined for revenge, a shift not too kind on him, similar in concept to Ellen Parsons in Season 2 of Damages. The show is still riveting, but at what cost?
