I watched this series purely because I loved the Iron Maiden song, while I was reading Dune I thought that it would make a great Maiden song, then I heard To Tame a Land, the lyrics of Rime of the Ancient Mariner are almost exactly the same as the poem and the poem is awesome.
Maiden songs provide the best watching/reading suggestions.

I will not make any deals with you. I've resigned. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered! My life is my own!

Watching The Prisoner when you're a pissed off teen is the greatest experience ever.

the prisoner is groundbreaking tv, up there with original star trek and the twilight zone.
everyone should watch it.

There's nothing to say, you faggot. Look at your own retarded post and how little it contributes to meaningful discussion. Most threads on Sup Forums are criticising something for why it's shit so how are people meant to discuss The Prisoner?

the prisoner is groundbreaking tv,

This is correct and I like it but part of the ground it broke was being incoherent for the sake of it. It was the 60s and a lot of what happens in the show is a response to the formulaic TV at the time, of which McGoohan was part. He talks about this role being an antidote to the secret agent role he used to play.

The episodes were also released out of order and it didn't matter. That should tell you how much they cared about any story arc in this show.

It's a shame too because the mundane part of The Prisoner is intriguing. You could make a pretty heavily plotted show out of the concept of someone being taken out of their element and put into a mysterious island location where nothing is what it seems and everyone seems to play along.

The surrealist part seems forced and stale now mostly because we've seen it done so much since then.
