Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tony Nigro
The Prisoner's star and creator Patrick McGoohan heatedly denies allegations that the show is a "sequel" to his other landmark secret-agent series, Danger Man a.k.a. 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 Orwellian Village where he's trapped 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 fifth collection features the show's three final episodes, including "The Girl Who Was Death," "Once Upon a Time," and the eternally puzzling series finale, "Fall Out," which after initial broadcast garnered confused, even angry responses from fans. They watched to find out who Number 1 was and if Number 6 would finally escape the Village, but the episode is so abstract that viewers usually leave wondering, What on Earth is going on. Different people have different interpretations -- to give any here might reveal the ending -- so the best one can do is weigh the entire series for oneself, enjoying The Prisoner's wit, intelligence, and style, not to mention its undeniable place as one of the most unique spy series of all time.

    Complete on DVD at last!

    <The Prisoner> It is a lovely day in the Village now that A&E has released the final episodes of ''The Prisoner'' on two DVDs as Set 5 of the complete collection. Here we have the wonderful spoof of all spy films, ''The Girl Who Was Death,'' in which the ubiquitous villainess (Justine Lord) is always one step ahead of the beleaguered agent (McGoohan) and in which we have the cleverest of all twist endings in the series. But Prisoner-lovers will want this set especially for the final two episodes. There is ''Once Upon a Time,'' in which an early Number 2 (Leo McKern) risks his very sanity to break down Number 6--and, we are told, the actor actually came close to or just into a nervous breakdown during the intense filming. And of course, the ''resolution'' to the series, ''Fall Out,'' in which the elusive Number 1 is finally (and literally) unmasked and revealed as the only logical person it could have been. I have to admit to a slight dislike of the smugness in this last episode, especially that of the character of the young rebel (Alexis Kanner, who had been featured in the ''Living in Harmony'' episode earlier in the series). But since McGoohan himself, in all probability, wanted only to keep us mystified throughout 17 episodes--4 more than he had originally planned-- I strongly suspect never really had any concrete idea of what the ultimate ''revelation'' would be until most of them had been filmed. But who cares? It is a lot of fun, once you toss logic to the winds and take the whole thing as something out of Kafka and/or Beckett and/or Orwell. The second DVD hold as two special bonuses a detailed overview of the series, ''The Prisoner Video Companion'' and an even more revealing 16 mm home movie taken by the Production Manager, showing how the scenes were actually shot around guests staying at the location that is now world-famous for being The Village. Be seeing you.
