Storyline

A New Yorker awakens to find himself in a place called The Village run by a man known as Two. As everyone in The Village is referred to only by a number, everyone in The Village refers to him as Six - despite he himself knowing that he has another name - and seems to know who he is. He is told he lives in The Village and that The Village is the only reality there is. Six's mission becomes to find out where The Village is, who Two is and why he is seemingly keeping him prisoner in The Village (despite Two stating that Six is a free man), and how he can escape to his life back in New York. Six has to learn who among the Villagers he can trust - who include a doctor named 313, a cab driver named 147, and Two's own son named 11-12 - in his quest to escape from The Village. Six also has recurring memories of his life in New York, including an encounter with a woman named Lucy, which may be part of the key to discovering why he's in The Village. Written by Huggo

Trivia

"Be seeing you" is a commonly heard phrase in The Prisoner (1967) (1967), The Prisoner (2009) (2009), and was also one of Patrick McGoohan's catchphrases in Danger Man (1960) and Secret Agent (1964) . McGoohan's character "Johnny Cousin" (a pot smoking drummer) in All Night Long (1962) uses the phrase also when he says goodbye to the road manager "Berger" towards the end of the movie. See more »

I wish Russel T Davies did this
17 November 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I've been holding judgement on this because I figured sooner or later they would find a stride, they haven't I wasn't around when the original came out but thanks to Bravo and DVD I have seen all of the original episodes and this "remake" can't hold a candle to it. There is none of the charm and surreality of the original i didn't expect a shot for shot remake but at least keep the spirit alive. I say keep Britian for the British somebody in production on the new show should see if Russel T Davies is for hire and then maybe we can get some good writing. After all he did successfully bring back The Doctor. I think the thing that annoys me the most and no one that I have read has mentioned this yet, where is that great theme by Grainer?Even a techno version of it would have been acceptable.
