Jess and Chris continue their monthly journey into the weird world of single seasons TV shows with a new one-season show, the immensely influential spy-science fiction mash-up, The Prisoner (1967).

The show, created by the main star Patrick McGoohan, follows Number Six, a secret agent who, after turning in his resignation, is kidnapped by unseen forces and sent to the Island. The Island is a home for dissenters and other individuals deemed too dangerous to live in the public unchecked. As Number Six attempts to unravel the mystery behind why he has been sent to the Island, he must also rebuff attempts at cracking his psyche to figure out what secrets he may know.

Jess and Chris talk about the show's pilot "Arrival," along with some of the background behind the show's conception including a massive dispute as to who is the true creator of the show.

You can follow Jess @writerjessbyard, Chris @casualty_chris, and the show @oneseasonshow along with a big thanks to Chalalatas for their song "Mustaches and Martinis".
