The Prisoner

Vodpod videos no longer available.

After Mad Men, AMC may be coming up with another winner with The Prisoner miniseries, a re-make of the late Patrick McGoohan’s masterwork. Starring Jim Caviezel (The Passion of Christ) and Ian McKellen (X-men, Lord of the Rings) as Number Six and Number Two respectively, it will premiere on Sunday, 15 November.

A man, known as Six, finds himself inexplicably trapped in The Village with no memory of how he arrived. As he explores his environment, he discovers that his fellow inhabitants are identified by number instead of name, have no memory of any prior existence, and are under constant surveillance. Not knowing whom to trust, Six is driven by the need to discover the truth behind The Village, the reason for his being there, and most importantly; how he can escape.

This show reminded me of The Truman Show and I still cannot get the Jesus vs. Magneto image out of my mind.
