The Prisoner
« on: September 13, 2011, 11:39:40 PM »
Bought this on Blu-Ray recently and have been enjoying going through it again, as it's been a while.

It holds up as well as I remember for the most part, except for Free For All, which loses focus.

Anyone else enjoy this?

Hey Lard, What an amazing series. I never thought of finding this on disc and still have the vhs tapes, I'll guess it's the entire series on 1 BD. The theme song is stuck in my head now after reading the topic. If anyone picks up on this thread and hasn't watched the prisoner, You'd be doing yourself a favour finding it. Oh, The Simpsons take on it was just plain horrible

AMC, I think, streams the entire series for free.

I've watched the first 6 episodes, I think. I got up to the classic "Big Ben" episode.

Very much like this show.

Is that the first time you've watched it? I'm looking forward to your reaction to the ending.

Man I thought I was the only person who knew of this show.  I picked up the Blu Rays recently(cheaper than the DVD), and fell in love with it again.  Hell the game I'm designing in my spare time is heavily influenced by it!

ARISE before the end of 2011!!

Yes. And I haven't watched any more episodes, still. I want to buy the bluray like you did instead of doing the AMC stream and watch the whole thing with my wife some weekend.
