  • An exercise in paranoia - just brilliant.

    I love Patrick Cargill in this one and Patrick McGoohan is, as usual, fantastic but the best thing for me is the recurring tune. At times it is hypnotic and the sheer unyielding willpower of Number Two to break Number Six is just magnetic. It can be critisised of course but you need to leave that in the bin and just enjoy the plot and become more and more drawn into the crazy dark world of The Prisoner. If you are thinking of watching this strange series, please bear in mind that it is an acquired taste but one well worth obtaining.
