Where we take the avant-garde 60s television series, look at it with jaded eyes, and then tell you everything that's wrong with it.

    Episode 8: Once Upon a Time and Fall Out

    Episode 8: Once Upon a Time and Fall Out

    We bring the experiment to a close with the utterly incomprehensible two-part conclusion to The Prisoner, and lay out what comes next.

    Episode 7: Many Happy Returns

    Episode 7: Many Happy Returns

    We discuss Number Six's silent birthday and the wardrobe of Mrs. Butterworth with our guest Tim Allen, who has learned how different The Prisoner is this time around without the help of pizza and weed.

    Episode 6: The General

    Episode 6: The General

    We discuss education, smoldering gay glances, and how to destroy computers in a Star-Trekian way with guest commentator Cynthia Taylor.

    Episode 5: A. B. and C.

    Episode 5: A. B. and C.

    All the problems of The Prisoner on full display as we examine the episode that broke guest commentator Jill Neff.

    Episode 4: The Chimes of Big Ben

    Episode 4: The Chimes of Big Ben

    Guest commentator Piers Marchant talks with us about the historical and artistic context of The Prisoner as the now-indoctrinated Number Six tries to escape the Village via Art.

    Episode 3: Dance of the Dead

    Episode 3: Dance of the Dead

    We realize the Prisoner is more poetry than prose as the first -- and only? -- female Number Two puts Number Six on trial for crimes against the Village. All plot, no story, but the costumes are nice.
