Must include this as the granddaddy of cult tv. What an incredible series, McGoohan was a genius giving us a seventeen episode video puzzle of enormous complexity and density , whilst making it entertaining
Made in the sixties but still relevant today as a commentary on the dehumanizing of the individual but still contained in a ITC spy/ adventure trope.
The last episode is infamous of course but episodes AB and C and The Schizoid Man are my favorites, in the former, The Prisoner has his dreams manipulated but wins out as he in turn manipulates his own dreams and triumphs in his sleep! Class!
