Thought For The Day

    The Lava Lamp, is an iconic device from the 1960's, and much used in the Prisoner. The lava lamp can be seen in No.2's office, the Examination Room of the Hospital, and two in No.6's cottage for examples, and I think it is symbolic of that 'thing,' the Village Guardian, as being a a reminder to the citizens of what is out there in the village, should citizens fall from grace, or attempt to escape.
    If the Lava Lamp is symbolic of the Village Guardian, then it is ironic, is it not, that the peptually moving Guardian, molevolant, yet contained behind glass, making it just as much a prisoner as any citizen of the village!
Be seeing you
