I’m all kinds of excited and hopeful about the remake of The Prisoner. That British series was my official favorite TV show of all time for a few years, until I burned out on it. A fresh remake is all I need. And it doesn’t hurt to have Ian McKellan as Number 2, not to mention Jim (Jesus) Caviezel as Number 6. The fact that AMC is producing it is just icing.
I can still recite the intro from memory. Patrick McGoohan was never so Present. Here’s the ridiculously long, yet awesome intro to the original. Something I never fast-forwarded through on any episode.
