As a previous reviewed mentioned - they certainly packed a lot of storyline into the 30 min offerings - maybe a bit too much, so the longer ones do flow a little better for me, nevertheless, all great stuff!
Even though the great Patrick McGoohan apparently denied it, it seems pretty clear to me that The Prisoner WAS John Drake stripped of name and given a number.
I can thoroughly recommend this box set on what I've seen so far - it's pretty addictive viewing.
Thank you Network for this production.
Perhaps not the original half hour episodes of “Danger Man” but definitely the ensuing one hour series
Of course we were greeted by the cult Johnny zRivers song “Secret agent man”
Patrick McGoohan was a throwback in that he did not spend considerable time each episode chasing attractive women
Good well written stories with nicely drawn characters
Conflict always conflict - sometimes John Drake had inner conflicts other times he ran up against his superiors
Look closely and you will see the makings of “The prisoner”.
I had to adjust my screen’s aspect ratio to accommodate the 1:33 image
I hoped the PAL system with a higher level of resolution would result in a better picture than the older Arts & Entertainment DVDs.
All in all a great addition to my video library because the stories do not date as badly as others from this era.
Some of the stories and attitudes are very much of their time but mostly the episodes still seem fresh and even relevant.
Nowhere near as ambitious as McGoohan's later 'The Prisoner' to which 'Danger Man' is something of an uncle, I would have to say I would prefer to watch the earlier show all the same.
