    As many know and have discussed in passing on other threads, AMC is sponsoring a remake of "The Prisoner". Discussion has always included the original 1967-68 UK series with Patrick McGoohan which appeared on CBS as a 1968 summer replacement. Much to my surprise, AMC now has all 17 episodes of the original series available for streaming on its web site.

    Saw the trailer--the new one looks really cheezy and awful. Extremely cheap sets and EFX. Like a bad indie film. Nothing beats the old shockingly weird McGoohan vision. The Prisoner needs McGoohan to work. The new guy looks knackered.

    having watched the original (as a kid, didnt quite understand it) I saw it repeated again when i was older and enjoyed it-I hope the new series does it justice (RIP pat )

    Is there a way to get the videos of the old series in a larger screen? I can't find a way to do it. I've got a large monitor but it's still pretty small and I don't see a way to fill the screen.
