What is ridiculous is this latest attempt at "The Prisoner" with that
guy from "Person of Interest". This new guy is No 6 and yet there are
people numbered 1160 etc. WTF! At least in the original, it *was* a
village with a small population. It seems the Americans who instigated
this remake actually have no idea what a village is.
