Be Seeing You

Posted By on Thu, Jan 15, 2009 at 6:51 PM

Well, if Mari is going to mourn Ricardo, I'll have to note the passing of Patrick McGoohan, who had numerous notable roles. The one that will always stick in my mind, though, is his turn as the indomitable Number 6, kidnapped away to the Village in the way-out series The Prisoner. McGoohan not only starred but also played a big role behind the scenes in crafting the series, which blew my young mind when I first watched it. McGoohan's message of individuality and authenticity was powerful stuff, especially when it was first broadcast. And the Rover was pretty damn cool, too.

If you've never seen it, you're in luck; AMC is streaming the original episodes as it prepares to show a remake later this year.

One of these days, I'd love to get to the Hotel Portmeirion.
