Episode Studies
     Like us on Facebook, where you'll see notifications every time a new study or review is posted on PopApostle!

This is PopApostle's chronology and studies of the 2009 TV mini-series, The Prisoner. I will be presenting my studies of each episode, such as commentary on the philosophical issues examined, sound bits of memorable dialog, screen grabs and my own musings. 


I am continuing to use the term "episode" here as I have elsewhere on PopApostle, as a separable piece in the continuous narrative of a larger story, whether discussing an actual TV episode or a novel, short story, or comic book.
