The Prisoner Reference for Today

Illana Mercer gets points for referencing The Prisoner in her article today:

Remember the cult, 1967 British television series, “The Prisoner” (“I am not a number – I am a free man!”)? Whenever “Number 6” (the individual) attempted to escape from “The Village” (the collective), a giant balloon called “Rover” gave chase and subdued him. Little Sam’s metaphoric “Rover,” you can be sure, is his mother’s suffocating monster womb.

As Monty Burns would say, “Excellent!”
