4.0 out of 5 stars Mission Impossible it ain't! March 7 2004
Format:DVD
Without question this has to be the most thought provoking and socially relevant series ever made. The only drawback is the price which is over the top.
I became a fan of this show when it first came out in the 60s for an entirely different set of reasons than I have now for considering it a masterpiece (or very close to). The concept of being held under constant surveillance by the powers that be was something unheard of for the television media back then and, other than Orwell's great work, something the media has generally never shown no particular interest in. That's not entirely surprising considering the chief purveyors of political and corporate disINFORMATION are so closely tied to today's media. A series of this sort will never see the light of day again (sans the manipulative twisted social agenda of the western media) and there is very good reason for that. No old boys club is going to point the finger of blame at itself for creating a perverted and obscene society.
There are those who absolutely hate this series and in some ways that's understandable as well. The main character is not a thoroughly likeable one and has a tendency to come across as smugly self-assured. That can be irritating and, as today's viewing public is convinced their heroes should portray a perfect balance of society's most cherished misconceptions, it's not surprising some will be unable to appreciate number six's unique character traits. They are however essential for carrying the series' winding plot to it's inevitable if somewhat bizarrely choreographed conclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never Surrender April 9 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The memory of McGoohan as Danger Man and The Prisoner has stayed with me since watching these episodes on UK TV when they first came out --- so long ago I can't put a date on it. I can remember that I identified strongly with both characters although at the time I was never quite sure what was going on in The Prisoner. Still, I could see that he was arrogant and sardonic, but baffled and powerless. At the same time, he was never going to bend, break or crack. McGoohan filled this role to perfection. I thought the style and design of the series was exceptional, and I still do: it holds up remarkably well; and, as someone said, it is really timeless in theme and execution, which qualifies it as a genuine work of art. I get the message rather better now, forty-odd years later. Anyone who appreciates that the only worthwhile purpose of life is to maintain the struggle of the integrity and independence of the individual against the system --- bureaucratic, socialist, capitalist or any other -ism --- should own this series. Personal freedom is all that there is worth fighting for, but how to achieve it without submitting to the smothering forces that usually claim to have the same aim? That is the great problem. Never join them, even if you can't beat them. That's the answer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forever timely & brilliant! Feb. 27 2004
Format:DVD
A nameless man resigns from a secret Government agency, planning to embark upon a new life with a free conscience. Gassed in his room, he awakens in The Village, a deceptively lovely & inviting prison where everyone is a number & there is no escape. Informed that he is now Number Six, a succession of new Number Twos does their best to break him & discover precisely why he resigned. As the series progresses, the tone becomes more surreal & allegorical ...
I first saw this wonderful series as a 14 year old back in 1968, when it appeared as a summer replacement for "The Jackie Gleason Show" on CBS. While certainly a product of its time, its questions not only remain timeless but all the more relevant today, when privacy is at an even greater premium & the individual is bombarded with an endless deluge of homogenized consumer, political & cultural inanity & propaganda.
What began as a mystery/suspense series quickly became something much deeper, much richer -- but creator & star McGoohan was smart enough to provide plenty of excitement & adventure for those viewers who wanted nothing more than that (although the densely symbolic final episodes must have proven frustrating for them). In various episodes, the series explores the limits of democracy; the role of the media in shaping public opinion; the various aspects of supposedly benign Big Brotherism (both from Left & Right); the perversions of science & technology, often used to mold & control people rather than serve them; the morality of violence in service of the State; the boundary between individual conscience & community need ... and we're just getting started!

4.0 out of 5 stars Even dressing is an act of defiance! June 19 2007
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
So says the new number Two in an early episode of The Prisoner while watching him getting ready for a new day in the Village.
By the way the following review is for the 40th Anniversary Collectors Edition of The Prisoner.
This 10 DVD set contains many extras and they include the following:
-Rare 8mm and 16mm colour footage of The Prisoner on location in 1966
-A 50 minute special "The Prisoner Video Companion"
-the alternate version of "Chimes of Big Ben"
-rare foreign file cabinet and intro and outro footage
-all the production and series trailers
-picture galleries for all eps and for the /67 press conference
-interactive map of The Village
-lots of trivia
-a fold out map of The Village
-a wonderful interview with the production manager for the series
-and a 60 page illustrated booklet containing synopses of all the episodes plus many other bits of Prisoner patter
The only thing missing are interviews with any of the cast including Mr.McGoohan who is conspicuous by his absence but there are many quotes both visually and in print from him.
Each of the ten discs come in a slim slipcase with annotated info on each ep,behind the scene factoids and some info on the "order" debate.
With regards to the latter I would rather have had this series been released in the original order it was back in /67 than in the more fan friendly version it is in in this set(which is by no means perfect).Now,as in /67 when I first saw this series,I just considered it like a giant jigsaw puzzle.All the pieces were scattered on the table but all one had to do was put them all together and in time the picture would reveal itself.I would like to think Mr.McGoohan himself had a reason for releasing them in the manner he did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really dated but needs watching for cultural literacy
The Prisoner: The Complete Series [Blu-ray] (1067-1968). I do not remember the series looking this good. I only saw reruns as I was in Viet Nam at the time. Read more
