I Am Not A Number, I Am... Number One???!!!

The last, and perhaps the most problematic, episode of "The Prisoner", in which No. 6, having won his battle with No. 2 in "Degree Absolute", and having seemingly defeated the Village's masters' attempts to break him, is taken to see No. 1.

This episode's ending, and most especially No. 6's confrontation with No. 1 at the episode's climax, caused so much controversy among consternated viewers of "The Prisoner', that McGoohan and family had to first go into seclusion, then leave Britain, first for Switzerland, then the US, where they've been ever since.

Be seeing you.
