The Prisoner 1967

I understand why this would have been appealing at the time of release. It's a bizarre and imaginative world filled with mystery, but this was impenetrable for me. It was very creative and many of the shows unanswered questions showed promise, but I don't think it did a good job on paying off on any of them. It's possible that I'm completely dense and missed much of what the show was trying to say, but the bigger issue here is that the show never convinced me to care. It setup a very interesting premise, and then kind of slogged through 17 episodes. To me it felt like a precursor to a show like "Lost", but it just never sank it hooks into me the way that show did. I appreciate what it was trying to do, but it was a joyless watch.

I couldn't understand any of this. I am stopping halfway through the first episode
