    A remake of the prisoner? I view this with equal measures of eagerness and trepidation. Ian McKellen is a good start. Unfortunately, I don't know enough about Jim Caviezel to have any real opinion about him as number 6.

    Actually, it would have been funny if Number Two was played by Patrick McGoohan. [​IMG]

    I hope it's not as boring as the original.

    Bwaa Haa!

    The things I remember about this series, from when I was a kid, were the big bouncy balls.

    Off-topic of course, but that's actually a decent shot of Frakes/Riker...

    According to McGoohan Number Six.

    I am a huge fan of the original and look forward to this remake. We will see.

    Jim Caviezel will play number 6. From memory I don't recall number 1 ever being revealed. Number 2 ran the place, so number 1 would be the power who pulled the strings.

    I wonder if they will film at Portmeirion. It would be hard to come up with another locale as surreal and strange as that for The Village.

    I liked the sequel DC comics once did, where a new character ends up in the abandoned and ruined Village, presided over by an older (and crazier) Number Six.

    It's gotta be a Welsh village or it just won't work.

    Dude, you know you're a filthy, filthy cheat, right?

    That's Tom Riker -- the simultaneous post-TNG commbadge and the peeled-off sideburns are the clues. [​IMG] [​IMG]
