Oh my God, the BBC really takes good care of its shows. The original The Prisoner series looks so clear it’s amazing. There is no grain at all in the picture. It’s bright, sharp, open so we can see all the detail of The Village. Modern day TV doesn’t look like this. Hell, a lot of modern day movies don’t look like this.

The Prisoner: The Complete Series on Blu-Ray

The set of The Village is full of cracks, grit, bumps, paint bubbles. It’s all texture and you can see it all now: scuffs, shine, felt fuzz. Intense close-ups flatter Patrick McGoohan, although not all of his costars. Aerial shots look so real, you see The Villain in three dimensions.

Colors are lush with the green courtyard, pastel paint, shop awnings. Fruit and flowers color the general store. Number 2’s purple office shines as do the multi-colored buttons of their “future” technology.

There are occasional scratches on the film but still minimal. It shows that you can fix up archival materials and keep authentic flaws. The Prisoner offers both natural and surreal looks for a stunning Blu Ray.
