I've been rewatching The Prisoner episodes from the DVD set that was sold awhile back. Most of them hold up quite well. Evil twin shticks like "The Schizoid Man" are generally the result of writer's block, but any series can be forgiven one. The key annoying feature of the series is the late Brendan Stafford's (primary cinematographer) use of the zoom lens. However he wasn't alone. Everyone in the industry seemed infatuated with zooms around the time period when the series was shot, and it instantly dates a production faster than women's hair styles. Overall, Stafford does some very nice work in the show, but if I ever get crazed enough to do some fan-editing for my own use, the majority of the zooms are gone, gone, gone...

Be seeing you.
