The Prisoner

The Prisoner - Now AMC is entering the remake--sorry, reimagining--sweepstakes with The Prisoner (begins Nov. 15), a six-hour sprucing up of the 1967 archetypal that was the granddaddy of TV arch trips like Lost. In the aboriginal series, architect Patrick McGoohan starred as an abettor who resigns his column and is abducted and taken to the Village, a affably absolute bank boondocks area anybody has a number. He becomes Six; the Village is overseen by the absolutist Two. What the Village is and why it is were the (never absolutely resolved) questions of the alluring 17-episode series.

The reimagined adaptation replaces the daydream accompaniment with the daydream corporation. Michael (Jim Caviezel) is an analyst for Summakor, a aggregation that collects surveillance data. After abandonment his job, he wakes in a aberrant desert, absent and with bare memories of his past. Finding his way to the Village, he meets its apparently happy--but acutely anxious--citizens and Two (Ian McKellen), the drolly awful leader, who is awfully absorbed in Six's memories. Six suspects that the Village admiral appetite to abduct his mind. "We might," Two purrs. "But we will consistently accord it back."
