I Am Not A Number!

No, of course, you aren't. You're just stuck in a weird village with weird people who may or may not be playing mind games with you, Number 6.

The Prisoner helped me through my twenties, through numerous dark days of late-onset teen angst. I spent many an hour watching episode after episode of this show, well, when I wasn't watching The Avengers with Emma Peel and John Steed (and wishing I could wear a cat suit like Emma Peel could), because there were only 17 episodes in all. And now Patrick McGoohan is dead at the ripe old age of 80.

Good night Patrick. The pleasure was all mine, believe you me.

And Ricardo Montalbán, too.

Oh. The Avengers. Ruined for me for all eternity by Uma Thurman. But let us not dwell on that.

....I am a free man!

Farewell, Patrick.

That's so funny (and dated)!

I'm not sure if I've ever seen The Prisoner! But I have really enjoyed him in Danger Man--I Netflixed some of those episodes recently. I just found out last night that he had passed away.
