Be Seeing You.

Patrick McGoohan, best known as Number 6 in the legendary TV program The Prisoner, passed away today at the age of 80.

It's a bloody shame that the show isn't better known.  It's very surreal, and would probably be quite popular these days.  You can see a lot of its influence in programs like Lost and 24.  There's a remake of The Prisoner coming from ITV, probably this year, but I can't imagine it'll be anywhere near as interesting... I'll be watching, though.

UPDATE: AMC has the entire series online for our watching enjoyment.  You're welcome!

1 I fully expect the remake to be a disaster, based on one single piece of information: there's only going to be a single Number Two.

2 Only 1 Number Two?  Absurd. 

Man, that show was great.  My dad got a copy for Christmas, and I watched it all with him.  I'm going to have to buy my own copy one day.
