1 Ironically, I have to admit that I would have been tempted to vacation in The Village! Of course, it turns out to have been an early 20th century Welsh beach resort. Also, I liked the Rover anti-personell guards that were . ..weather balloons! LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 24, 2009, 11:51 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 My vote is for the last episode, "Fall Out". Up to that point, the series had its ups and downs, and the episodes that were intended to be part of the abortive "second season" of the program are generally not as good as those from the first. However, the program was consistently entertaining, interesting, thought provoking, and unquestionably unique. The problem of setting up any "mythology" in a show, as Chris Carter found out with the "X Files", is that sooner or later you have to answer the questions that you've raised. That's why the last episode loses it: it answers nothing about the previous 16 episodes, but rather asks a new set of questions, and then doesn't answer them either! It would appear that the series had been cancelled with 16 episodes either completed or in production (26 episodes were originally planned), and a final 17th episode was cobbled together in a great rush to try and give some resolution to the series. Originally, series creator Patrick MacGoohan said that all the answers were in the final episode. However, in a later interview, MacGoohan stated (regarding "Fall Out"): "If anybody admits to understanding it, then please pass the understanding on to me." Mind you, the fact that there wasn't a coherent ending (plus the presence of lots of symbolism to encourage endless debate on what it all really means) is probably the main reason for the cult attraction of the series. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 24, 2009, 11:58 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
