    • TV Reviews

Jess and Chris continue their monthly journey into the weird world of single seasons TV shows with a continued look at 1967's spy science fiction mashup The Prisoner.

The show, created by the main star Patrick McGoohan, follows Number Six, a secret agent who, after turning in his resignation, is kidnapped by unseen forces and sent to the Island after turning in his resignation. The Island is a home for dissenters, and other individuals deemed too dangerous to live unchecked in public. As Number Six attempts to unravel the mystery behind why he has been sent to the Island, he must also rebuff attempts at cracking his psyche to figure out what secrets he may know.

Jess and Chris talk about the twelfth and thirteenth episodes "Hammer into Anvil" and "Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling", following the Six of One fan order.

You can follow Jess @writerjessbyard, Chris @chrismasclaus, and @oneseasonshow, along with a big thanks to Chalalatas for their song "Mustaches and Martinis."
