The Prisoner (TV Show)

The Prisoner is a British TV show that ran in the late 60s. The 1960s. The show was made by the BBC, so you know the production values are first rate, old chum. Patrick McGoohands stars as the titular prisoner, and he's so old school Brit that he bleeds heavy cream and scones and punk rock. He finds himself in a prison where "not all is as it seems" and "people dress weird" and "you know." It's filled with mystery and wonder and some strange happenings. It's like science fiction, but there's no lasers which really pisses me off. Science fiction needs lasers, robots, and monsters...not a bunch of talking. This brings the entire show down a letter grade, which is too bad cuz they had an A. So now, Prisoner, you get a B. Try and escape that and my giant white balls will capture you!
