    Hello, all :hattip:

    Anyone knowledgeable want to try drawing parallels between life at the Int Base and the old TV series "The Prisoner", if they exist?

    For those who have never seen that series, it's very much worth a viewing. I myself have the series on DVD, and watch it maybe once a year. Patrick McGoohan makes some very sharp commentaries about "our democratic society", in a story posing the question: what happens to intelligence branch/top cleared personnel when they retire?

    It's for sale at Amazon. Maybe some (more enlightened?) video houses will offer it for rental...

    Tried to put Video of Iron Miaden's The Prisoner (which I guess starts with a line from TV show... "WE WANT Information..information. who are you? the new number two. who is Number 1? you are number 6. I am not a number I am a free man! Hahahaha.)

    Anyway it failed.

    Thanks for trying!

    Here's the intro ( I haven't learned how to embed video here, yet):

    which gives one an idea.

    Here's Wikipedia:

    I checked, there is no spoiler there :)

    The older-timers might be able to put this together. It's a stretch, I know.
