Now, for those who don't know the show: The Prisoner was the best TV series EVER made.
As to the quality of the DVDs themselves, A&E has done a superb job with this set--super clean transfers and excellent Dolby sound.
It is a work or art, it is a social commentary and it is very prophetic and more relevant than ever.
