Reminder: The Prisoner Miniseries

Happy early birthday to adamantrealm, sneezythesquid, bibliotrope, hinluin, and m_stiefvater! May you have a wonderful day and a fantastic year to come!

The remake of The Prisoner is here! The new miniseries will air over three consecutive nights beginning tonight, Sunday November 15th, with two episodes each evening, from 8PM to 10PM ET on AMC. As you may know, The Prisoner is my favorite television series of all time, so I am looking forward to this miniseries with a mixture of anxiety and excitement.

Here are some related links:
* My review of the original The Prisoner series for Revolution Science Fiction
* The Prisoner Portal
* AMC's home page for the new The Prisoner miniseries
* The Prisoner in Pop Culture

And here is the trailer for the new miniseries:




“Unlike me, many of you have accepted the situation of your imprisonment and will die here like rotten cabbages.”

How does a rotten cabbage die, anyway? Presumably, there is much squelching.

I would assume so. And noxious odor, after a time. Or maybe that's just the eldritch and Lovecraftian rotting cabbages.

Yes, those eldritch cabbages can be quite trying.

I've got my DVR set for The Prisoner. I loved the original series and hope this doesn't disappoint.

Earlier this year MiniCon had a panel, "Long Live Number 6!", which I would have loved to have attended if I didn't have a work conflict. The pocket program blurb indicated possible Prisoner tie-ins to Ice Station Zebra and the 1975 Columbo episode "Identity Crisis" (which Patrick McGoohan directed and starred in).
