It’s worse than I thought. Originally in my previous post I was concerned about the loss of the spirit of the show, as the program was decidedly anti-corporation and the protagonist was weak, incapable, and extremely difficult to identify with. Little did I know that it could actually be *worse* than that.
Patrick McGoohan, the co-creator, writer, and oft-director of the original “Prisoner” series in 1967, died in January of 2009. All I can say is that I’m glad he doesn’t have to see what’s been done to his beloved series.
