AMC’s The Prisoner is coming upon us and not lacking star power with Jim Caviezel and Ian McKellen involved. This is a planned 6-episode remake of the classic Spy/SF show from the ’60’s, and Caviezel is playing the roll of the recently deceased Patrick McGoohan (Number 6). recently deceased Patrick McGoohan (Number 6).
Personally, this is looking like it’s going to be a great show. There are so many levels to their plots, that a Movie would not have done it justice. They need the flexibility of episodes because as I said, this show has depth.
The Prisoner World Premiere is Tonight at 8/7c on AMC.
