Check out the First Promo for AMC’s Remake of THE PRISONER

     June 1, 2009

prisoner_headline_01.jpgI caught this promo for AMC’s mini-series remake of the cult classic 1960s BBC series, “The Prisoner, last night while I was watching the season finale of “Breaking Bad” (one of the best shows on television; watch it ASAP) and while it’s brief, shows almost nothing, and doesn’t even reference the original, it does let you know that personality vacuum that is Jim Caviezel is in it along with the great Ian McKellan.  I’m going to tune in just for McKellan because it’s good to see that dude since he’s only done voice work and stage plays since “X-Men: The Last Stand”.  However, no matter the quality of this mini-series, AMC deserves some love for allowing you to watch all the episodes of the original series right here.

For those who don’t know about the original, it’s about a spy (“No. 6″) who’s just turned in his walking papers when he is abducted to “The Village”.  There, he is a prisoner (Hey!  That’s the name of the show!) in a Kafka-esque world of unnamed citizens and giant, threatening ping-pong balls.  It’s worth a watch.

Check out the promo after the jump.  AMC’s mini-series debuts this November.
