Welcome again to The Prisoner Podcast! This week, fittingly on Number 6’s actual birthday, we cover Many Happy Returns, in which we learn all about staying quiet for long periods of time, eating lots of sandwiches, and England under Nazi rule. ¬†Enjoy!

 

Ep. 6 – The General

Welcome back! This week on The Prisoner Podcast we look at some military history: Generals, and that…sort…of thing, and continue to ponder 6’s aversion to women, and why the hell he even sticks his nose in this business in the first place as we cover The General

Notes:

If you’ve never seen it, here’s some links to learn more about Dark City, a very cool sci-fi flick from the 90’s:

Also, after doing a little digging, I found out that the writer of The General, Lewis Greifer, created the pseudonym “Joshua Adam” in honor of his two sons, whose upcoming school tests at the time inspired Greifer to come up with the story for The General. Very cool!

For some more info on Greifer, who also wrote some Doctor Who, check out his IMDB page.

Enjoy!

Ep. 5 – The Schizoid Man

Thanks for coming back after a long, unintended two-week hiatus! Sorry for the wait! This week we learn about flapjacks, voodoo, ESP, and how this episode is like Total Recall. Enjoy!

Notes:

The Simpsons episode we reference is The Computer Wore Menace Shoes, from Season 12

And the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode we reference is The Schizoid Man, from Season 2.

Also, with all the Star Trek talk in this episode, we’d be remiss not to mention the passing of Leonard Nimoy this past week. He’ll be missed. LLAP!
