BOOK REVIEW: "The Prisoner #1" by Thomas Disch (1969)

Republibot 3.0's picture

The Prisoner is easily the best Science Fiction series in television history. When it came out in 1968 I was one year old. When I was ten or eleven, PBS re-ran the series, and I became an avid fan. I even taped 'em on our Betamax, and annoyed my friends by incessantly whistling the theme over and over and over again. When PBS abruptly stopped re-running the show, I happened to have a tape of the bizarre final episode, Fallout, and I watched it repeatedly every couple of months until our Betamax finally went to that big Thrift Shop in the Sky circa 1982.
