TV: The Prisoner.

Encapsulated. Would you recommend this? why?

I first saw this when it was repeated in the 70's and totally blew mw away

Time and Space: When and where I first encountered it

I was about 10-11

Recollection and revelations

it made such an impression on me I would introduce myself to new prospective chums then ask them if they liked The Prisoner

Click Alert the moderator to this recollection if you see something on this page that breaks the house rules.

Highly recommended
