Cast: George Coulouris

DVD (Dolby 5.1 / Mono)


The Prisoner was a strikingly original British television series in which an espionage agent (played by Patrick McGoohan) attempts to resign his post, only to find himself spirited away to a strange penal colony, where one can live in peace so long as they do not question the actions of the leadership. The agent, now dubbed No. 6, struggles to maintain his individuality as he tries to find out who is holding him captive and why. This home video collection features four episodes from the series (which McGoohan produced and helped to create, as well as starring as No. 6): "Prisoner 2: The Chimes of Big Ben, "Prisoner 3: A, B and C, "Prisoner 6: The General, and "Prisoner 11: Checkmate."

The Prisoner is an allogorical wonderland, which challenges veiwers to reconsider their place as individuals in society. The plot can be summed as follows. There is a place where people with sensetive and valueable information disappear to, where their secrets are extracted and their individuality crushed. This place is known only as ''The Village''. Our hero, once a top level spy, is kidnapped from his home shortly after he angrily resigns from his job. In the Village his only designation is No.6, and over seventeen episodes he struggles to retain his individuality and escape the Village. Though almost thirty years old, The Prisoner still maintains almost cult following. It is probably my all time favorite TV show. The dialogue is full of British wit, the conception ''artsy'', and the plot and symbology intellectually challenging.
