The Prisoner: The Complete Series

 (TV) (1968)

The Prisoner: The Complete Series Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Though it ran for a mere 17 episodes, the sci-fi spy drama THE PRISONER is one of television's biggest cult hits. The brainchild of star Patrick McGoohan, the series followed the adventures of No. 6 (McGoohan), a former secret agent who is being held captive in a highly secured village, the location of which remains a mystery throughout the series. This groundbreaking and innovative show reached an unfortunate end as TV bosses got cold feet following low ratings and increasingly strange story lines. But McGoohan himself took control and steered the show to an ending that continues to cause great debate among THE PRISONER's faithful fans. This release includes the entire series of the show, digitally restored.

For more about The Prisoner: The Complete Series and the The Prisoner: The Complete Series Blu-ray release, see the The Prisoner: The Complete Series Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Directors: Patrick McGoohan, Pat Jackson, Don Chaffey, David Tomblin, Robert Asher, Peter Graham Scott
Writers: Patrick McGoohan, David Tomblin, Anthony Skene, Terence Feely, Vincent Tilsley, Michael Cramoy
Starring: Patrick McGoohan, George Markstein, Peter Swanwick, Fenella Fielding, Christopher Benjamin, Leo McKern

The Prisoner: The Complete Series Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Prisoner arrives on Blu-ray in its original television broadcast aspect ratio of 1.33:1 with an AVC encode. Generally this is an excellent looking presentation, especially for a British filmed television production over 40 years old. Colors are bold and beautifully saturated (and very, very, "mod"), and detail is brilliant. Some of the stock footage, principally used in establishing shots of The Village (actually the resort village of Portmeirion in North Wales) exhibits some specks and other debris, but it's not too distracting. There are some episodes where flesh tones seem somewhat blanched when compared to the bulk of the series, something no doubt inherent in the source elements. When the show goes into its "trippy" mode (as in the screenshot here of the patients in the ultraviolet room), the Blu-ray offers a vivid palette and wonderful detail. I did a spot check with the relatively recently released 40th anniversary DVD edition and found the picture quality definitely a noticeable upgrade, especially with regard to color saturation, but that said, it's not so incredible that those of you with the SD-DVD edition will automatically want to splurge for this new version.


The Prisoner: The Complete Series Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Audiophiles will no doubt be complaining that we have no lossless audio options on this Blu-ray. However, the repurposed Dolby 5.1 mix is really quite excellent, especially when compared with the original mono tracks also offered here. Fidelity throughout is generally very, very good. The mono tracks suffer from pretty noticeable compression and an overall boxy sound; you'll hear the difference between the two offerings right off the bat if you toggle back and forth between them while the theme music is playing. Dialogue is crisp and at times excellently directional (though there is a tendency to place dialogue front and center). Some ambient effects, like McGoohan traipsing through a gravel path, have some fun use of surround channels. There's no damage, overarching hiss or dropouts to report. Overall an excellent if not mind blowing use of traditional Dolby 5.1, one that should satisfy all but the most persnickety audio lover.
