Fun, Entertaining, Enlightened
Sorry i didn't find this podcast until after its run. It's a fun podcast with hosts who are intelligent and funny. They thoughtfully cover The Prisoner, celebrating its brilliance, and pointing out its flaws. It perfectly hits that podcasting sweet-spot of professional quality without the put-on broadcasting personality.
My favorite of all of the Prisoner Podcasts
Number 6 Returns!
If you like classic 60's sci-fi and shows that call the characters numbers instead of names, you'll probably like this podcast. Two co-hosts talk about each episode of "The Prisoner" for around an hour. Good times.
