I Am Not a Number. I Am a Free Man!
Thanks to Dan over at My Year in Crime for reminding us that today is the late, great Patrick McGoohan's birthday. Known to many these days as the evil king from Braveheart, he was also largely responsible for bringing about one of the smartest, craziest TV shows of all time, The Prisoner. Long before Locke found the Hatch, Number 6 pitted his will against far more devious and mind shattering foes. Fans of shows like Lost owe a lot to this pioneering piece of 60s madness.
Who is Number 1?
