One of a handful of '60s TV shows that truly deserve their cult status. Patrick McGoohan plays a man who wakes up in a mysterious and controlling location known as "The Village". He is number 6. This is the mind-bending story of how he rails against the control that is everywhere in his new life. Under 24 hour surveillance, he tries to find out the location of the Village. He makes numerous attempts to escape and, somewhat more interesting is his quest to discover the identity of the mysterious "number 1". At each step along the way he is thwarted by "number 2", whose identity changes constantly. An allegory mirroring twentieth century dictatorships and reminiscent of other works of fiction such as George Orwell's 1984, The Prisoner is both disturbing, compelling, and strangely familiar. Does number 6 ever escape? Who is number 1? Where is the Village located? For that matter, who is number 6? Do any of these questions ever get answered? Watch this ground-breaking show to find out. Or do you ever find out? Perhaps, perhaps not. But for now, in the words of number 6, "be seeing you!"
