When I was a kid, watching The Prisoner was my parents’ way of giving me a treat (they didn’t believe in candy, nor in sweets and desserts). I loved that show, with its sci-fi overtones, its Big Brother feel, and its star’s courage and determination.
It’s therefore with great sadness that I learned today that Patrick McGoohan is dead. Although it’s not old, I can’t believe he was 80. Makes me feel old.
