I’ve been watching episodes of The Prisoner with my wife lately. We haven’t been watching them every night, but when we get a chance we sneak in an episode or two. I’m still really enjoying them, despite this being the third time I’ve watched them through. (I think it’s three…) Sometimes movies and television don’t really stand up to repeated viewings. One notices more detail and plot holes can loom larger when one has time to anticipate the twists that are coming. But despite some flaws (the “science” is really just a bunch of ridiculous Macguffins (and yes, I know I don’t usually use Wikipedia) the stories themselves stand up well and remain interesting and fun.
