The Prisoner TV Series 2009:The Prisoner Remake AMC – The Prisoner which is a remake of a TV series by the same name aired last night on AMC.The Prisoner episode 1 called “Arrival” and episode 2 entitled “Harmony” premiered on Sunday.Just like the original,the new version focused on a man named Six waking up in a golden prison where he can not escape.Here is the premise of the first two episodes:
A man, known as “Six,” finds himself inexplicably trapped in “The Village” with no memory of how he arrived. As he explores his environment, he discovers that his fellow inhabitants are identified by number instead of name, have no memory of any prior existence, and are under constant surveillance. Not knowing whom to trust, Six is driven by the need to discover the truth behind The Village, the reason for his being there, and most importantly — how he can escape.
Here are few things that stood out last night:
-If you were really looking forward to this one,after seeing what AMC did with Mad Men ,boy were you disappointed.
-Number 6 lead us nowhere other than discovering two mysterious towers on the horizon.
-The ending was horrendous and confusing.
-Here is a terrible scene for you,Number 6:”Maybe you are my brother! You’re a good man and deserve better than how I’m treating you!” Number 5 replied by: “I’m not your brother.”
