I am not a number, I am a free man! Does that make # 6 the original vaxx denier?

Commercials were better first time around.

If for any reason you cannot access Decades, the full run of The Prisoner is also available, for free, on the streaming channel Tubi.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I binge watched that show (for the first time) last year... Surprising how well (most of it) held up.

It had a, dare I say it, unique voice that was serious, yet at the same time conveyed a pronounced, very British tongue in cheek feeling. I don’t know if it could successfully be recreated, but I won’t be surprised when someone tries.

Oh, it would fall flat on its ass if they tried to reproduce it... and yes, it had a unique flavor.

Interesting location but different story. Kind of like the Andromeda Strain remake.
