I watched this series as a kid. I believe I was nine. Groundbreaking stuff at the time. Even then I was attracted to McGoohan's unpredictability and unwavering belief in himself. The kind of person I hoped I'd become. The craziness of the Village, the bizarre order of things, the Guardians roaming around and everything else that went into the making of this wonderful timeless series just fed something in me.
When I saw it had been released on Blu-Ray I was somewhat hesitant. Hesitant because not all the older media transfers well to Blu-Ray and, even if it does, sometimes its age or mechanisms used to create an effect can be exposed for its crudeness. Well, I'm happy to report that, as of watching up to Episode 7 of 17, I've only noticed one such exposure. The floating Guardian ?
I feel like a kid again watching this stuff over. I do remember the show becoming a little self-indulgent towards the end as the surrealism was played up a little to much here and there but, for me, I wont tire of this series. I'll pull it off the shelf every so often and indulge myself in its self-indulgence and relive childhood days.
Summary: Should this set become damaged or lost, I will replace it with the same.
