Recently I have thoroughly enjoyed watching the 2009 series of THEPRIS6NER, 6 episodes which always leave me wanting more Village. And during that screening there was little or nothing which took my attention to write about. Hardly surprising really judging by the amount I have written on the subject, and the number of the episodes which go to make up the series. So what is left? The pure enjoyment of sitting and watching THEPRIS6NER without having to think about it. In that lies escapism.
I shall watch THEPRIS6NER again later in the year, whether or not I shall
watch the 1967-68 series of ‘the Prisoner’ I cannot say. I did think that I
would watch the series in the library or production order, but I’m not sure.
The passion I once had to watch ’the Prisoner’ twice a year, along with
individual episodes in between, as I have in the past has deserted me. I don’t
know why, I still enjoy writing about the series, and get quite animated when I
find something in the series which I had not seen before, or when I arrive at a
new idea, theory, or interpretation. Perhaps that is where the solution lies,
that visual stimulation from watching ‘the Prisoner’ is something I no longer
require, seeing as I busy myself writing about the series in some respect
almost every day. And I am still a huge enthusiast of ‘the Prisoner,’ and some
would have it that I am doing a good job of promoting The Prisoner’ through my
blog. It’s just that I’ve arrived at a point where I no longer need to watch
the series. It’s quite on the cards that the next time I watch ‘the Prisoner’
it will be for the 50th anniversary. Whether via a television screening
specially for the event, or video, or DVD.
Be seeing you
