Patrick McGoohan



Patrick McGoohan has died, aged 80 - Santa Monica, CA. "The Prisoner" remains my favorite TV show, 40 years hence. R.I.P. and Be Seeing You.

It certainly was the best series ever in that it actually asked relevant questions: what is the nature of man's relationship to society? Just asking such questions is significant.

It certainly hasn't dated in its themes. Hell, it HAD themes!

I notice (and probably noticed before, but forgot) that the picture used for the placard of "Number Six" is actually a publicity shot from Dangerman/Secret Agent Man, where McGoohan played Agent John Drake.

ooooooh!

One of the ones who will actually be missed when the revolution comes.
