A friend and I had eagerly anticipated digging into 'The Prisoner' after many years and the DVD set became available. Alas, I fear it has not aged well. By the end we were scratching sores into our heads and the befuddlement and bafflement rose to a maddening crescendo. No questions were answered, no plotlines resolved, no explanations offered. And the last episode is the biggest mind-frak ever put to celluloid.
In short, can't recommend it. But, that said, I'm looking forward to the AMC Network's adaptation of The Prisoner scheduled for next fall/winter. Here's hoping they do a better job. I only wish Patrick McGoohan were going to be around to offer his take on it.
