Number 6 is gone. Be seeing you Patrick McGoohan.
« on: January 15, 2009, 10:37:25 AM »
The main actor/producer/writer/director of the best, and arguably one of the most influential tv series of all time, The Prisoner, is gone. He was 80 years old.

Most people know him for his role on Braveheart, but most people suck, so if you haven't seen The Prisoner, stop wasting time with the crap that's on tv today and go watch it, it's only one season (17 episodes).

EDIT: I'm disappointed with all of you! :azan:
Berserk isn't really "dark fantasy" either. It's plain fantasy
Miura has been very protective of Berserk

3:13  That line will forever be what I remember him by.  :ganishka:
Rip McGoohan, he was a great actor.

Whoops, was going to reply yesterday, but I had to get back to work.  I've only seen a few episodes of The Prisoner, so I mainly know him from his role in Braveheart.  R.I.P.

Yeah, I'm sad to see him go too.  I adored The Prisoner, and Danger Man is a lot of fun.  Even had one or two eps of Danger Man that doubled up on my favorite actors ever - Patrick McGoohan vs Patrick Troughton.  Unbeatable.

Yeah I was sad when I heard that. I loved The Prisoner. Interestingly, I didn't even recognize him in Braveheart when I watched it.

arguably one of the most influential tv series of all time

It's a cult-classic but I think you might be overdoing it a bit here.
