Review - The Prisoner (2009) Part 3 Anvil and Part 4 Darling

To be honest, I don't care much for The Prisoner, so I was eating and browsing the internet while watching Part 3 on my MP3 player, and as expected I didn't follow the story to the best of my ability. I'm not sure, but I'm thinking that if I watch the miniseries very closely, I might like it better. If I have time, I might do that over the weekend and report my new thoughts.

There are some really excellent scenes with great acting, directing, and soundtrack, but there just isn't enough cohesion to tie together all these great scenes. The relevance is often lost as Six wakes up in his bed after something exciting happens. It makes you wonder what is real and what isn't real, but then why should I care?

It liked seeing the rest of the Village and some of it's covert operations. I know because it's a miniseries, but I would like to see an entire episode where Six just explores the place. From the inherent surrealism of the Village, I'm sure viewers could be thoroughly entertained for the entire episode.

Score: 8.4/10

I don't know why you wasted your time writing this pointless piece. So, you barely watched something and then on a tiny screen... no wonder you don't care much for The Prisoner.

Honestly, these types of programs require more than an MTV attention-span, and you would do yourself a favor by treating them with more respect.
