Very, very sad news. One of my favorite TV series ever. A few years back I received the box set of this series and I still pull them down and watch an episode or two. Smart, Witty and absurd all at the same time. If you have not seen this series American Movie Classics has them available for free. There is apparently a re-make in the works as well.

Shows like Lost owe everything to this series.

I love the Prisoner. I loved him in Scanners as well.

I was hoping for a big comeback role.

Sad.

My wife just called me with this news as I was reading the thread above it.

We were just talking this past week of visiting 'The Village' this summer as something to do next summer.

Well, June, you beat me to it. I only just saw the headline on the BBC.

Cheers,

ARGH!!


The Prisoner, Danger Man, his performance as Edward the Long Shanks in Braveheart (a bright spot in an otherwise banal movie), he's always been one of my favorite character actors- and he's always had insightful things to say, as well.

In an age where celebrity goes to the best looking, or those willing to do the dumbest things, Mr. McGoohan had Talent, Wits, Good looks, and Intelligence- and the courage to speak his mind and do his art, HIS way. Things that are sadly lacking in this day and age.

God Speed, Patrick.
