    Default Video Recommendation: The Prisoner



    A 1960's short TV production about a fellow who is kidnapped and held captive in a resort from hell.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Prisoner


    I enjoyed it for its dream-like quality, focus on mind control and overall sarcastic commentary on social order.


    Ex-cult members might find the series fascinating, if not harrowing.

    Reminiscent of The Prisoner, The Giver is a bit immature but worth a thumbs-up.

    Firefly is great, and even Michael Fairman, ex scientologist appeared in the show:




    He's made a few comments on Martys blog and Mike Rinder blog recently.
