My latest post for has gone live, about the very good news that one of the best pieces of TV of all time, The Prisoner, is now available for free streaming from

As a very unfortunate coincidence, Prisoner star Patrick McGoohan has passed away at the age of 80, just as I was writing my post, apparently. The Prisoner┬áhad a lasting effect on me, informing much of my teenaged (and later) rebellion. I think it’s a fine piece of work, and recommend it.

    The Prisoner was indeed excellent. It’s a shame AMC has that, “Go Fuck yourself, Canada!” content block. =(

    Download and install that. It blocks what country you’re surfing from. Works great. Comedy Central, AMC, everything.
