RIP Patrick McGoohan

Sad news I learned yesterday just before going to bed: Patrick McGoohan is dead. I discovered him at 17, when a local channel was showing reruns of Danger Man. Then, of course, there was the revelation that was The Prisoner, maybe the best tv series ever, definitely the greatest 60s tv series. I guess loving that series was not very original for a teenager wanting to be free and different (like all the others), but it was still a great series. It is difficult to summarize in a few words and I don't think I would give it justice, but I put the intro here to give you a taste of what it was all about. You can find a documentary about the series on youtube. More on Patrick McGoonan here, here and here.
