The Prisoner Yesterday and the Future

Patrick Macgoohan has passed and we have lost a television series icon. AMC is running the entirety of the Prisoner online and they are ready to launch a remake of the series. I'll have to watch the show first before I can judge it. I am skeptical. Remember the Pretender? The Prisoner series worked so well due to the reflection of the time period...Don't know if that sense of "innocence lost" can be repeated. We have become a very jaded demographic of viewers where nothing surprises or shocks us anymore. Ah, early morning ramblings. Anyway, besides being an actor in the series, Macgoohan created it and wrote and directed many episodes. Here is a link to AMC's online episodes
