The Prisoner - remake

There's a nine minute preview to view.

Don't think this is going to trouble the original, though.

I'm with you. I knew they were going to take it out of England. An American Prisoner? Stupid idea and way to go screwing with a classic.

Hmmm...this actually looks interesting even if it seems to be a bit Truman Showish. The trailer has enough hooks in it to make me want to see the first episode at least.
Big fan of the original but if the Americans can bring new ideas into the concept it might go places.

Wow, a big steaming bowl of meh.

The new sets are nice, but they don't compare to the original set design. The big white retrieval ball is nowhere is near as scary as the original, which gave me nightmares until I was eleven.

And as good as Cavaziel is, he's no McGoohan...not to mention Sir Ian McKellan seems to be phoning it in.
