This is one that I come back to from time to time. I remember it being on TV when I was a kid, and watching it again on college when one of the public television stations had it on.

I bought the entire DVD collection a few years back, and watched it then. I've gotten it out again, watching "Arrival" over the weekend.

This show sure does make you think.................clearly it was ahead of its time.

I loved that show. I haven't seen it since high school though. It would be interesting to watch it again.

I've been to Portmerion, where they filmed it, it's as odd as the series, being built with a lot of odds and sods from demolished stately homes and town halls. You can stay there overnight, but I think its horribly expensive.

I was a huge fan, but I remember watching the last one (when they re-ran it in the 1970's, no dvds or videos then) and being none the wiser afterwards about who number 1 was.

I'm not altogether convinced that McGoohan knew either...

A friendly maintenance man came by this morning and as we were talking the dispatcher was referring to the people that she was talking to as numbers on the walkie talkie. I asked to see it, keyed it and said "I am not a number, I am a free man." Mr. Maintenance man took his walkie talkie from me and left.

I remember staying up late on Saturday nights, okay so 11 pm was late for me, and waiting for it to come on. I was totally fascinated with the series. It had so many different aspects to it. Great memories and great show.

The Prisoner was a follow-on from Danger Man.

John Drake left the secret service only to find out he couldn't or wasn't allowed to do that. The point of the Prisoner was to find out why he wanted to leave by using psychological interrogation on him.
There was a bit of speculation at the time that Patrick McGoohan, had got a bit to close to the truth which is why it was canceled. But he says he just ran out of ideas.

@Roy, Portmerion is a really interesting place to visit. It's a weird walking across the beach where that bouncy balloon caught him if he tried to escape.

I bought the badge but didn't fancy paying £99.00 for the jacket with white trim.

Now, here's a blast from the past!

I used to watch it with my dad. My mother didn't much care for it, so it was just the two of us. We would discuss points that the show brought up. It was a great bonding time for us. I think it actually helped my dad realize I wasn't just a teenager but an adult in the making. Very Happy

I saw the original US broadcast and was hooked, I need to buy the DVD set. (they say the A&E set is a ripoff, to go for the UK one)

what does everyone think of the upcoming remake?

I thought I was the only one sad enough to have the box set.

My favorite was 'Free for all' as I found the foreign maid to be rather sexy looking.

Did you know they're making a remake. I only hope it's better than the usual remade dross that's out there.

I'm now wondering how I can work some of this into a bait. I don't think a lad would fall for me calling myself "Number Six", plus No. 6 never called himself that anyway.

Perhaps I could be "Number Two"?

If my lad gets out of line I could scold him for being "unmutual". Laughing

Ohhhhh errrrr - that white bouncy balloon thing use to scare the living daylights out of me. I was too young (shut up, I was) to really understand what was going on but then again did anybody? Didn't working on that show send Patrick McG slightly off his rocker?

I wouldn't be surprised if he did go off his rocker, the last episode was one of the maddest things I've ever seen, what was he doing chasing a copy of himself around wearing a gorilla suit?

According to Wikipedia, the menacing bouncy balloon that kept them all in check was called Rover.

Did you know McGoohan wrote the entire thing himself as well as starred in it?

We went to Wales on holiday last year and visited Portmerion. I took the complete collection of the prisoner on my media player, thinking I'd show the boy one or two so he'd know what to expect; to my amazement he insisted on watching the whole lot and proclaimed it to be "brilliant but weird"
