So the old man is finally going to find out who number one is.

Far be it from me to be sentimental in such situations, but I'll be cracking open some whisky and enjoying a few choice episodes.

For those that haven't seen the Prisoner, it's essential viewing, and a slightly depressing reminder of how good TV can be. The real legacy is in the messages though, which are as important today as when it was first broadcast, if not more so.

The final episode should be part of the curiculum. Easily the most interesting thing ever shown on TV. I love the story about him having to move to the US after the controversy of the final episode. Amazing that it could be controversial yet non-offensive. Something that modern TV writers have absolutely no concept of whatsoever.
