In honor of the late, great Patrick McGoohan, we’re spending the next couple of weeks rewatching his landmark SF show The Prisoner. Day 3, Episode 3: Dance of the Dead
When a Carnival comes to the Village, No. 6 decides to go for a night on the town and discovers a dead body on the beach and a miniature radio receiver, which may give him a way of communicating with the outside world in a rather unorthodox manner.
This episode is fairly heavy on symbolism. What themes did you pick up on? How effective do you find the sounds and imagery of the series?
