The Prisoner

I've been watching The Prisoner. It was a show I first
watched as a child in the late 60s. I was surprised
to find out that it had been produced in color. I watched it
then at my babysitter's (Nana Fause) on her black
and white TV. It was a weird show and one I didn't
understand then. But, Rover fascinated me.

I'm sure McGoohan's work helped shape my anti-
totalitarian views. Whatever else, I will never
be a number; I will always be a free man.
