Good for Prisoner Fans Indeed by KathyWithaK January 26, 2006 - 2:18 PM PST

For those of you whose interest in Secret Agent was sparked by Patrick McGoohan's remarkable series The Prisoner, I must tell you that YES! some of these programs will illuminate the previous life of Number Six as agent John Drake, and illustrate some of the reasons why he chose to resign. Of particular interest to fans of The Prisoner are the episodes "Up to the Lady" and "Whatever Happened to George Foster" on Secret Agent: Danger Man Volume Four, which show Drake's increasing disillusionment with his own government. In the former, Drake promises freedom to a returning defector, only to find the word of his employers was a ruse played upon himself as well as the hapless idealist who his government labeled a traitor. In the later, Drake is left to fend for himself when he takes on a corrupt Lord. However, the highlight of the series is on Volume Three: in the episode "Colony Three," Drake visits a remote village where former agents are held captive and subject to psychological manipulation and strange interrogations.

Please note that the 1960 series marketed simply as Danger Man is infinitely inferior to the Secret Agent programs. The half-hour episodes leave little time for plot or character development and will be of interest only to completests and those who enjoy chuckling at the omnipresent drinking and passionate smoking in the black and white world.
