I Am Not a Number!!!!

Hello all traveling in the Land of Blog. Ti's I The Mysterious Library Ninja Guy!!!!!!

Heavy Metal Ninjas Battle till their ears bleed!!!!

This past weekend Iron Carl and myself got together and watched episodes of this really cool TV show from the 60s called "The Prisoner" staring Patrick McGoohan. Here is a summary, taken from Wikipedia describing the series:

"The series follows an unnamed British agent who abruptly resigns his job, and then finds himself held captive in a mysterious seaside "village" that is isolated from the mainland by mountains and sea. The Village is further secured by numerous monitoring systems and security forces, including a mysterious device called Rover that captures those who attempt escape.

The agent encounters the Village's population, hundreds of people from all walks of life and cultures, all seeming to be tranquilly living out their lives. As they do not use names, they have each been assigned a number. The agent is told by the Village's chief administrator "Number Two", that he is "Number Six", and they are seeking "information" as to why he resigned; the task of doing this is carried by the ever-changing "Number Two", acting as supposed proxy to the unseen "Number One". As the series unfolds, the audience learns that the Village authorities have other interests in Number Six aside from the knowledge he
possesses: interests that often spare Number Six from the more destructive information-gathering techniques employed by the Village authorities upon other inmates.

Number Six, distrusting of anyone involved with the Village, refuses to co-operate or provide answers. Alone, he struggles with multiple goals: determine for which side the Village works, remain defiant to its imposed authority, concoct his own plans for escape, learn all he can about the Village and subvert its operation."

Patrick McGoohan - The Mysterious Secret Agent dubbed Number 6!

The Opening for each Episode!!!!

Very Cool!!!!!

And finally just a brief sequence from the series:

Pretty cool stuff huh? Well I am hooked after just two episodes and will be on the look for the rest of the episodes. I love this show cause you cannot confine it into just one genre. It's awesome spy stuff, trippy sc-fi and just plain fun!

Hope some of you guys reading this try to look for it. I'm sure some libraries probably carry the series.
