The Prisoner, further thoughts.
I'm almost done. I'm working on the pentultimate episode now, and will see the last one shortly. Hard to say what I'll think of it when I'm done. I'm very impressed by it. It also has a way of getting under your skin, in a way that most works for TV do not. I'm tempted to say it's because the rather vague nature of the show itself and the clear use of symbolism among others, because these things conspire to make think: what was that all about, and support various interpretations. If something is good because it makes you think and wonder, then this is a great one.
