RiP Patrick McGoohan 1928 - 2009

When I was young,
Patrick McGoohan was "Secret Agent Man" and became "The Prisoner." With the exception of a few "Columbo" episodes, the actor seemed to enjoy portraying a suave villain in flicks like "Silver Streak" and Clint Eastwood's rival in "Escape from Alcatraz." Even though the actor was in his late sixties, Patrick McGoohan was a strong adversary to challenge Mel Gibson's "Braveheart."

"The Prisoner" was Patrick McGoohan's creation. This 17 part series is fun to watch and each episode was thought provoking. The last episode was deliberately confusing but was fun to watch and features a Beatles song.
