Absolutely agree 100%. And yes, The Prisoner is the greatest TV series ever made in my opinion as well. A real allegorical masterpiece. Wish more people knew about it. Patrick McGoohan was plugged into what was happening to the world. He knew the direction we were heading in, even if he didn't have all the pieces of the puzzle in order to put it together perfectly, he still knew we were heading towards "the whole Earth as the Village", as Leo McKern's Number Two wanted. And yes, sadly, Patrick was right in so many ways. But I do believe that he injected a note of hope into Fall Out (the finale), which, to me anyway, suggests that even if we break free of society, you always are still a prisoner to yourself (hence the iconic ending twist of Number One being Number Six). But in realising that we're all prisoners, we do gain a modicum of freedom. A type of freedom some people will never understand.
