......... the prisoner..

15 posts in this topic

My Dad got this DVD box set of the old 70s TV show 'the prisoner' for Xmas... we've just started watching them and they are really weird.... it scares me how weird the people who came up with this can think... has anyone else seen it... is anyone else confused?

actually i didnt think it was a bad show, just real confusing.

???????? sorry you must have the wrong show there. I mean, this was weird.... it wasn't actually about a prison at all it's about this village where people get taken when they retire from high up positions with valuable knowledge, and 'the prisoner' is the guy who's trying to escape.

never heard of it, and I'm 22 years old! I have heard about something quite similar to what you say it is about though, but I don't think it was the name that you had given, I dunno, I'm a hippie, I forget things easily

Don't.. it was probably a show of the same name, but I didn't actually describe what i was on about at all in the first post except that it was weird and was called the prisoner. It's my fault.

Hey, king penn, any realtion to Sean Penn? *shudder*

Anyways, the prisoner was a old 70's show about a bunch of really smart people trapped on a island for knowing to many things...I think...The Simpsons did a spoof on it.

ewww 70's TV shows.... excuse me while I vomit....

Although the Simpsons spoof was rather funny.. I enjoy that episode.... now that I think about it, the Simpsons do spoofs on a lot of things... never really thought about that till now...

[color=indigo] I've seen it before. They used to play reruns of it an Dark Shadows on a local Cable station when I lived in DC. The show wasn't bad but it was terribly confusing at times. Unfortunatly the best thing to come from the show was the Simpsons episode. "Its really not such a bad place once you get used to the gassing..."Marge Simpson *evil Koala wearing sunglasses comes on the screen, removes them and gasses the Otaku*[/color]

That's what I didn't get about the simpsons spoof... WHAT WAS THE KOALA DOIN' THERE. There wasn't a Koala in the prisoner! Now I'm even more confused!!!
