I Am Not A Number, I Am A Free Man!

Despite what my timesheet says (I'm number six), I am not a number, I am a free man. Last week I started re-watching the classic series, The Prisoner, starring Patrick McGoohan. Today I learn that Sky and Granada are going to re-make it and bring us more episodes! In true Prisoner style I am sceptical to say the least. My first concern is that The Village will not be shot in Portmeirion, Wales. Next I hear that they will "take liberties with the original". This goes from bad to worse. At least a good production company is behind it, oh no, it's Sky, the people who brought us Mile High, Dream Team and countless documentaries too trashy even for (channel) five. With all this information, I think I can safely say I won't be seeing you.
