My brain is totally whack today. I should have gone to bed early last night to make up for the sleep I didn't get on Saturday night, but the new miniseries of The Prisoner debuted last night. I never watched the old one though I always wanted to. I guess that means I get to watch this new one with an unsullied mind and no expectations. So far it looks like 6 has been placed in The Village by a corrupt corporation, and 2 is controlling everybody with a combination of drugs and fear. Pretty predictable, so I hope my running plot projections are wrong, because I'd like to be surprised. To that end, I refuse to look up anything about the old Prisoner online.

Even if it turns out to be a standard storyline, I think I'll like it. I do hope they're getting everyone plenty of water off-screen, because they ran all over the desert with nothing to drink. I was thirsty by the end.

  1. Where the commercials loaded with beverage ads? It's all a ploy to get you to consume more.

  2. I bet you're right. Stupid ploys! But the only commercial I remember is the Palm Pre with the weirdly pale chick.

  3. Hm. I've never even heard of this. How odd. I watch a lot of TV, and missed this somehow.

    Oh well, glad you liked it. But don't count on them straying from the standard storylines. To do so with a screenplay is suicide, so I've been told.

    Let us know how you like it!

  4. It's on AMC, I bet you could watch last night's episodes online if you wanted to.

  5. It's fun to find a new show and get with it right from the get-go.

    I did that last year with that ... Harper's Island. Unfortunately, I regretted it about halfway through but I was committed by then.

    I hope it turns out much better for you!

  6. Last night's episodes of the Prisoner were ok, but I think I was too sleepy to fully appreciate them.
