Prisoner: Set 4

Overview

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 he can live in peace so long as he does 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 DVD collection features four episodes from the series (which McGoohan produced ...

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tony Nigro
A British secret agent Partrick McGoohan, known to us only as Number 6, still wakes up every morning to find himself trapped in the eerily Orwellian "Village" in this collection's assortment of episodes from the 1960s cult television hit The Prisoner. Star and series creator McGoohan heatedly denies allegations that the show is a "sequel" to his other secret-agent series, Danger Man and Secret Agent, and indeed, The Prisoner stands alone as a testament to psychedelic paranoia and weirdness, with conspiracy theories that put even The X-Files to shame. Number 6 knows not who runs the Village -- his former employers or his enemies -- nor why "they" won't let him live his life freely. And Number 6's lack of a name, in hand with the show's "Everyman, Ltd." production company, points to The Prisoner being an allegory for humanity: Are we imprisoned by modern society? No matter what your answer, The Prisoner masks its heady thoughts well in cleverly written and rarely formulaic mini-dramas that have captured imaginations worldwide -- not to mention an ultra-loyal fan base. This fourth collection features four latter-day episodes featuring McGoohan and his trademark furrowed brow, bucking the Powers That Be as usual. In "A Change of Mind," Number 6 is deemed "unmutual," and a procedure not unlike a frontal lobotomy seems to be the only solution. In "Hammer into Anvil," a young woman's death inspires Number 6 to use Number 2's favorite Goethe quote against him. "Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling" is a different kind of episode, made while McGoohan was away shooting Ice Station Zebra, and finds Number 6's mind being transferred into the body of another man. The set's final episode, "Living In Harmony," was never aired in the U.S. during the original CBS broadcast. It's another mind-manipulation story -- set in the seemingly alternate universe of the Wild West -- with McGoohan as a sheriff who turns in his badge. Many believe his character's refusal to carry a weapon -- a coded statement of peace during the Vietnam War -- may have been too much for American audiences at the time. This trivia aside, very few would still argue that The Prisoner never broke new ground.
