It's just coincidence right now that we're in similar dates to actual airtime. We've been doing two to three to sometimes four episodes just about every day that we can, so we've gone through about 450 episodes since early October. So 450 divided by 180 or so days works out to be about a 2.5 show per day average.
I remember the excitement of watching the show originally, especially when you just knew that a change of storyline was occurring. You'd get a sense that things were wrapping up and you'd look forward to the changeover episode. One thing that I still remember was the very first change to another time, the 1795 story, and at the time, it seemed like it took forever to get through it, to the point that we didn't know whether or not they'd ever return to the present. But when they did, it seemed so refreshing to once again see Collinwood with electric lamps, and modern clothing on everyone.
IMHO, the best change was to the parallel time story. We got a few previews of "the other time" when people witnessed things changing in the room and you just knew that a change of venue was about to occur and the excitement level would rise.
I hope I got the right episode of THE PRISONER that contains "Josette's Theme". I'm pretty sure I did. Usually I research this kind of thing before spitting it out on the Internet, but I think I got my facts straight. I believe this is also the episode where Number 6 comments, "Don't tell me time travel is part of this as well!"
