The collected legendary cult TV series starring Patrick McGoohan. The Prisoner centres on a British Intelligence agent (McGoohan) who is kidnapped from his London home and taken to a strange island village, where he's subjected to a brainwashing programme by an unseen foe. His new identity as 'Number Six' is confusing at first, giving way to anger and frustration along with a great desire to get away. Various agents of the mysterious regime that run this island, invariably called 'Number Two' seem intent on finding out why he resigned his covert post in the intelligence service. Number Six gamely attempts to resist the brainwashing of the omnipresent yet unseen 'Number One' whose voice booms at him from every corner of the village and whose eye appears to see all. Number Six's futile attempts at escape only intensify the sensory barrage (including hypnosis, hallucinogenic drug experiences, identity theft, mind control and dream manipulation) of Number One. The series was filmed on location in the rather spooky grounds of Clough Williams-Ellis' Italianate Hotel Portmeirion in North Wales.

The Prisoner series was clearly decades ahead of its time. It reveals the control grid we live within, the technocratic surveilance society we accept as 'normality' and which we all support, and very few even notice such is the perceptual bubble they live withn and have been trained (school/college/work) to view as normal. The series introduces complex aspects of MK, EMR and electro-technical manipulation and control, Controlled nutrition and weoponised medicine, complex Psyops, Social Conditioning, Social Programining, perception management, the Deep State, Technocracy, Secret Societies, and provides many examples showing how the very nature of reality itself can vary between individuals living side by side. There are many other Esoteric subjects and matters that barely 1% of the population would have any idea of (and could not perceive even if they were told) which advanced students will love to see illustrated or at least alluded to.
The series is also remarkable in that it manages to deal with many highly sophisticated and overlapping concepts and processes (all of which the astute can see currently employed today by the real control grid running society) in a simple way.
As a persons esoteric knowledge increases the more they will gain from this series.
It is no wonder at all that this series atained cult status.
This is the first time I have seen this series and have been blown away by it.
Considering it was made half a century ago the illustrations of the use of electricity, electrical items and wireless technolgy, and even electromagnetic radiation itself as a tool of manipulation and even control are simply remarkable.
An amazing series. High quality visuals too.
I must admit that I don't like all of the episodes e,g, Living In Harmony, they (mostly) stand the test of time, with the exception of the two at the end (Once Upon A Time & Fall Out), which felt rather rushed and at the time, they were). But mostly, they are wonderfully eccentric and thoroughly enjoyable. I know that they're not ever going to be everyone's cup of tea but I do hope that there will always be a new generation that will get to see this as a whole and not just allow themselves to only watch instant gratification TV which doesn't require much thought nor provokes discussion.
I love that a the discs fit into one normal dvd box.
