‘The Prisoner’ streams for free on AMC
There was never a TV show before like The Prisoner. You could say that there hasn’t been a show like it in the forty-two years (!) since.
What? You’ve never seen it? Dude. I mean, dude. Seriously.
Luckily, now you can see them all. I don’t guarantee that you’ll understand them, but you can see them.
To promote its new reinterpretation of the show which just wrapped shooting and scheduled to premiere in November, AMC is now streaming the original series in full screen. This marks the online debut of all seventeen episodes of the classic British series starring Patrick McGoohan, which originally aired in England from 1967-1968.
And when you’re done with that, go buy the DC Comics trade paperback, which hits the flavor of the original series and yet somehow provides an ending. It was one of the first things I got to work on as a production guy at DC, and it impressed the hell out of me.
