I've got one word for this episode: Seltzman!

I really liked this episode. Good to see #6 outside the village and outside himself. Call me a romantic sentimentalist, but the love interest didn't detract. It finally actually made him more 3 dimensional.

Finally some more info about his history outside as the spy he was reputed to be. The mood, the spy devices, pseudo-science. Almost a perfect 60's style spy story sans McGoohan.

Yes, the ending was predictable, but well played. It kept me entertained through out.

I would agree with you Dr. Moreau. This was a neat episode, barely seeing McGoohan, but giving the character an added element. I almost forgot I was watching 'The Prisoner', it felt like another spy-style program, but it was entertaining. This was the first time I noticed a different intro -- it did not begin with the theme song and when the theme song played, there was no dialogue (i.e. "who are you?" "I'm the new number two"....).
