  • A man is captured and brought to an unfamiliar place.He then learns why he was brought here and the dangers that await him.

    We are introduced to a man called Number 6 in
    this,the pilot episode of The Prisoner.He drives
    a little hot rod with license plates KAR 120C.
    He is being followed by another car as he leaves
    the office of his former boss who gave him a
    reprimand for an infraction he explodes in anger
    about.When he arrives home,a man comes to his door
    and shoots knockout gas into his apartment.He
    collapses and when he wakes up,he discovers he is
    in a strange place.He walks about,looking for a sign of life.He discovers one lady,but assumes
    she doesn't know anything when she tells him the
    name of the place---The Village.He can't figure
    anything out---until when a man says to come to
    number 2,the green dome.Then he is told why he's there---they want information.He will not
    cooperate.He is then shown The Village---and
    shown what happens to those who misbehave,as a
    circular white object consumes a man.
    In all this,the man---now known as Number 6
    ---learns that escape is practically impossible.
    He must accept the fate that he is there for a
    long time.
    A good introduction to the series.
