    Visually Stunning

    Patrick McGoohan's magnum opus was, and remains, an intellectually-playful adventure, an episode-by-episode puzzle. With the release of the BluRay version, however, viewers are treated to the luscious scenery of The Village as it has never before been seen... feature-film cinematography, constrained only by the series' original 4x3 television format. As a result, individual episodes seem far more immersive and absorbing than watching standard def broadcasts, or even a good DVD. Only drawbacks: While the original negatives could be re-scanned for HD, the same isn't true for audio; it's the same audio-for-TV mix that we heard over the air years ago. And Disc 5, a standard definition DVD with special features, is unplayable on some high percentage of BluRay players; the original UK program developer chalks it up to the vagaries of the authoring standards vs. BluRay player firmware. So far, US distributor A&E has been unresponsive when asked for support. But don't let that deter you -- BluRay is the best way to watch this amazing series.

    Gets better as it get older

    One of the few series that actually deserves its Cult Status. Was ahead of its time then and in this current post 911 era is still strong. Still you will either 'Get it' or you wont. Kinda like the X-files (though this is far better).

    Will make you think.

    The Prisoner was ground breaking series for the 1960's. Touching on subjects like mind control, the folly of political campaigns, education and the constant struggle for one to remain an individual in a world of conformity. As number six himself says, "I will not be pushed, stamped, filed, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered. My life is my own."

    This Blu-ray set contains all 17 episodes on 4 discs. A fifth disc containing bonus features is a standard definition DVD. Be advised the the DVD may not play in your Blu-ray player. Some players, especially those made by Panasonic, cannot read the disc. It contains pdf. files that the players can't read. The image quality is excellent and breathes new life into the series. Sound quality isn't. The 5.1 surround soundtrack tends to fluctuate in volume and the standard mono is just adequate.

    Overall an outstanding series that looks great in HD.

    I Also Recommend:

    Original to This Day

    Patrick McGoohan created a brilliant TV series that defied classification. There never has been, nor will there ever be a television show quite like it. The village is a quietly unsettling place that keeps people with information hidden from the rest of the world, with a Big-Brother-is-watching pervasiveness. The Prisoner of the title can trust no one, since nothing is ever as it appears in the beautiful village. Each villager is assigned and known only by a number and the whole menagerie is overseen by Number 2, who is charged with breaking McGoohan's Number 6 and gaining his secret information. But who really runs the village? Which side are they on? What intelligence agency? What will they do with the information they extract?

    The Prisoner,

    This has to be the worst series I have ever had the misfortune to buy, and a complete waste of money, it was a mystery from the beginning to the end, and even though I watched the whole series hoping to finally understand what it was all about it remained a mystery.
