Limited Time Offer: Get up to 2.70 in rewards credit when you buy this item direct from DCCollect.com The Prisoner 1967 Series Bonus Set A&E Patrick McGoohan (New) VHS -- Television's first masterpiece complete, uncut, digitally remastered and new factory sealed in original shrink wrap packaging. This classic British TV series spy drama produced by David Tomblin, and starring Patrick McGoohan (of Danger Man fame) ran for a mere 17 episodes, but remains one of television's biggest cult hits. Equal parts colorful splendor and biting social commentary, the surreal psychological experience that is 'The Prisoner' defies a clear label. It skillfully mixed elements of sci-fi, mystery, comedy and action to riveting effect on viewers when it first aired in 1967 and was quite unlike anything that had ever before appeared on television -- And this from the same country that created the incredibly imaginative Doctor Who series just a few years before...that's really saying something!
McGoohan once said the purpose of this bizarre allegorical conundrum was to create a feeling of unrest about life today. An abstract impression of the world and a warning of what would happen when gadgetry and gimmickry take over from creative people. An idea which is as timeless and relevant now as when it was first broadcast, The Prisoner has come out of the vault to speak to a new generation!
