    I see that they have The Prisoner Complete Box set of 10 DVDs for sale but I am curious as to whether or not this is the complete series of all The Prisoner episodes or just one season's worth of episodes.
    Anyone have any knowledge of this set?

    There are no 'seasons', just the single series.
    That box gives you everything.

    Can someone post a link to this complete set? I have held off on buying the discs until a set came out.

    Parker, there were only 17 episodes of "The Prisoner" so that set is all of them, including an alternate episode.
    It's expensive, but I want it!

    Too bad you didn't get it from Deep Discount Dvd before the price went up - I got mine for $71.98, shipping included. But $85 isn't too bad either - that's just $5 an episode.

    Just to be pedantic - in fact, there were two seasons of The Prisoner (Brit TV, for which The Prisoner was made, has much shorter seasons), but the second season was cut short (due to falling ratings, believe it or not). Hence the rather odd number of episodes.
