The Prisoner Episode Recap: "Arrival" and "Harmony"

AMC's reimagining of the 1968 cult classic, The Prisoner, kicks off its first night with a man called Six (Jim Caviezel) waking up in the desert with no idea how he got there. (Maybe he turned a frozen donkey wheel?) Worse, after being chased by men with dogs, taking a few cab rides, and meeting with a snazzy dresser known as Two (Ian McKellen), he realizes he also has no idea how to leave this mysterious place, known to its inhabitants as The Village.

The Prisoner
8/7c AMC
Surreal, intriguing and at times captivating, this trippy re-jiggering of the 1960s cult hit is awash in a school of red herring (or are they?) As Six, Jim Caviezel is both a complex and perplexed amnesiac (or is he?) who alights in a mysterious dreamscape known as the Village, where everyone knows your name, but all names are numbers. The No. 1 guy in the Village is actually Two (Ian McKellen), an enigmatic leader with a smile on his face, treachery in his heart and a tendency for two-timing.
