New Show, Well Sort of

The Prisoner. AMC. Tonight.

The Prisoner was a show in the 60's that ran one season and was the creation of star Patrick McGoohan, who later became the mean king in Braveheart and who died earlier this year.

AMC has a "reimagining" of this cult-favorite with the bland Jim Caviezel as Six, and Ian McKellen as Two. (Wasn't Blossom's friend named Six?)

In the original they were called Number Six and Number Two. I think we can *snicker* figure out why they changed their names (get it- number two).

I am going to watch, although I am partial to the original.
