    I'll have to see it...

    I loved the original. It was just so freaking out there!

    I was a big fan of Secret Agent Man. When it ended I was bummed, then I heard about it "continuing" via The Prisoner. I was 10 or so at the time. I have to admit the 1st couple of shows left me quite baffled.

      Is this different than the remake they showed in the U.S. late 2009 on AMC? If so, please let us know as I would be interested. I really like the original episodes.

          It was okay, but not too much happened. Ian McKellen was good, but that is to be expected .

            Ah...now I remember. I saw it when it first came out a while back. Not bad at all, but quite a bit different from the original. Good role for Caviezel.

              This was shown on AMC last year here. I don't watch too much television since I have kids, but I set aside 3 nights for 2 hours and told nobody to bother me while I watched the mini-series. I liked it, but not nearly as much as the original. Number 2 has a wife and kid in the remake, and I really thought that took away from the storyline. Also, as I recall Number Six didn't ask about Number One until the second show. That seemed a little odd. As I recall he was he was in a classroom with little kids and asked about Number One. I thought the little kids should have told him he was Number Six when he asked, but they said something about Number One being a servant to everyone. You could see they used some of the same themes in the mini-series though.

                My missus and I reckon we cracked the first one . This appears to have less je ne sais quoi than the first so far. Still it's only 6 episodes and will watch it as part of our limited TV time (Dr Who and Flash Forward are the only other series we currently watch).
