I confess, I am a fan of the (original) Prisoner. I am not the fanatical sort of fan, just one who has seen them all at least twice. I recognize they are dated. I admit the ending of the series is mostly stupid, and what is not stupid is mostly nuts, and what is not stupid or nuts is fun.
I don't say there should not be a remake. I just say I would really hate a bad remake.
Is this going to be a bad remake? American prisoner – not ideal. Ian McKellen as Number Two – very good. Rover is missing? – not sure how I feel about that.
