Storyline

Whilst exercising in the woods Number Six is accused of being 'unmutual' for not using the village gym and a fight breaks out. He is summoned before the village committee who decide he must undergo instant social training, though he is not actually given any treatment but led to believe he has. On discovering this he hypnotizes the village doctor, Number Eighty-Six, into declaring that Number Two is 'unmutual' and Number Two is then pursued by the crowd. Written by don @ minifie-1

Unmutual
9 June 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Number six(Patrick McGoohan) is attempting to exercise in private in the woods when he is attacked by a group of thugs who want to know why he doesn't use the gym and is anti-social. "Six" fights them off, but is later brought before a tribunal for being anti-social, or "unmutual" as they claim, and order him to be given a new social conversion treatment(a form of lobotomy) but this is really a ruse to fool him into believing that he has, in order to break him down and confess his reasons for resignation. Fascinating episode examines how even a strong-willed loner like him can still find public shunning uncomfortable, but his iron-will remains firm, as the misguided number two will find out.
