Summary

Summary

Drawing together aspects of media studies, cultural studies, film studies, structuralism, mythology, literary criticism, feminism, and social commentary, this book examines the position of ""The Prisoner as a television classic. Gregory argues that its allegorical depiction of a totalitarian world where technology enables the powers-that-be to control every aspect of its citizens, lives becomes more and more relevant as the years go by. Decodings of all of the series' episodes are detailed, explaining how the series broke with the usual conventions of a TV series.
