No Man Is Just A Number.

Patrick McGoohan's classic British 17-episode TV series, The Prisoner, has mesmerized American viewers since its CBS debut in the summer of 1968. Now,A&E presents the definitive collection of The Prisoner, perhaps the most unusual and challenging television series ever filmed.

Every episode has been completely remastered and, beginning here, is presented in the fan-preferred viewing order that follows events and dialogue within each story to provide a consistent and enjoyable viewing experience.

After resigning from a top-secret position, a man is abducted from his London home and taken to a mysterious place called The Village. Residents of The Village, known only by numbers, are held captive on account of their valuable knowledge. The Prisoner -- Number Six -- must protect his mind in order to preserve his humanity. The Village is controlled by the unseen Number One. The Chief Interrogator, Number Two, is determined to know why the Prisoner left his post. The Prisoner struggles to maintain his secret, discover the identity of Number One, and achieve freedom by escaping from the repressive grasp of his captors.
