So there is this new mini series on the AMC CHANNEL called the PRISONER its pretty deep. The show started on Sunday a 2 hour show for three nights. It is based on a guy named #6 who somehow has noticed something wrong with his surroundings. He lives in a place called THE VILLAGE where everyone takes 3 pills a day dont know why, ran buy a guy called #2.

Now this is just a nice sci phi type show except it shows SUBLIMINAL MESSAGES IN IT RELATED TO PIGS, MINITURE BLACKHOLES AND SOME TOWERS this is what made me do a thread on it. The first subliminal message was in the first episode it showd #6 losin it and he started seeing people he knew briefly change to pig people, yea told yal its deep. The second one I noticed was yesterday in episode 2 there were these MINITURE BLACK HOLES starting to form in the village and the people were told its because of the weather. Oh yea all the people are # named and they all feel the VILLAGE IS ALL THAT EXIST ON EARTH I DONT EVEN THINK THEY KNOW OF EARTH. Anyway the second subliminal was after a little girl fell into one of the miniture blackholes they BROADCASTED HOW THERE IS A PIG SALE BUY 1 GET 1 FREE. BECAUSE THE SWINE BREATH CAN KEEP YOU SUSTAINED _SUSTAINED SMH_ FROM WHAT I THOUGHT. The show remindes me of the MATRIX a little in fact 4 hours befor it came on the MATRIX RELOADED CAME ON THEN THE MATRIX REVOLUTION right before the show did same channel. The last thing I noticed in the movie is #6 was told to follow the 2 TOWERS to escape and part 3 comes on tonight @ 8:00 you can catch yesterdays episode @ 6:00 pm befor the final one starts. Its a show that many on ATS MAY FIND INTERESTING SO ENJOY IT IF YOU CAN.

Yea being on ATS I thought I would check and see if anyone else seen this mini series and seen any of the sublims. So if you seen the PRISONER MINI SERIES SPEAK ON IT.

It's pretty good. I like it better than the original British one from the 60's. Probably because I dont have to focus through thick accents to understand what's going on.

Although, it seems rushed. Like they're trying to cram as much in to each episode as possible. The original went on for 17 episodes. This one is like, what, 6?

I'm curious to see if this one ends the same way.

Giant bouncing sentry orbs FTW!!!!

Hi,

This was a cult TV show in the late 60's. Please the Wiki link....

en.wikipedia.org...

If you search on Google you'll find there is still a cult following.

It was surreal and apparently the last episode was never completed the way it was intended - numbher 6 was supposed to be - No. 1!

The location was a holiday village in North Wales.

Peace!

I watched the first episode and have a really good feeling about the show. Perhaps it was this forum that has altered my perception of symbolic interpretations in media, and hopefully some of you will get the same out of it as I have.

I got the feeling as if the main character (#6) is gradually shaking his mind loose. He often bounces between the real world (Our world) and a cookie-cutter world that reminds me of the Stepford wives and/or the town in Edward Scissorhands. Every house looks the same, the streets are clean. The world seems all too perfect to be real and ultimately instills an uneasy feeling as a result.

Number 6 continues to pursue a ghostlike representation of the twin towers in a desert landscape that surrounds his village. Every effort he makes to traverse the sand, he is attacked by a giant white bubble that consumes him. An interesting aspect of this bubble is that images from various media sources (television and technology) engulf his mind simultaneously with his body.

Can his character be equated to a budding truth seeker? Beginning of course (Like many on this forum) with the pursuit of the 9/11 truth. He gets closer and closer with each attempt, but he is always brought back to the Village. The media convinces him to return to herd.

Another strange facet involves his relationships with other characters in the town. The feeling I got from this aspect of the story is similar to the Truman Show. Each person that Number 6 interacts with are not who they claim to be, but also seem to be harboring the fact that they are playing roles. Imagine for a second if the actors/characters in the Truman Show were also unaware that they lived in a bubble. Each dream that Number 6 has about the real world seems to ferment itself into the Village in various forms. Including swift changes to a hilarious soap opera that the townsfolk seem transfixed to.

All in all, I can write a very very in-depth analysis of this series (I actually plan on it) once the series concludes.

If you haven't watched it yet, PLEASE DO. It's worth the time, and it's very very thought provoking. It's rare that a made for tv mini-series provokes thought. Let's at least support such an effort.

Hey you're stetching my memory - especially as I'm not even sure I was there at the time......!

No - I think the symbolism has been updated to represent more current topics.

'I am not a number - I am a free man!' at least i remebered that bit!

Peace!

I own the whole series. When I was young my friends and I studied this show at great lengths and although I will not ruin it for you. I really hate to tell you, it is not "deep" at all. It plays at being "deep". Wait till you see the end...


EDIT: I just realized you are talking about a new version. My apologies, I have to see it. I was such a fan of the original. I want to see if it ends the same way.

The new version has Swine breath references, miniture black holes and 2 ghostly towers I say 2 towers out of respect for those lost at the twin towers.
