The Prisoner Nummer 6


The sediments at the bottom of television: series and serials, omnipresent and almost as infinite as the medium itself. Few only were successfull in touching the underside of our attentiveness.
UNWAHRSCHEINLICHE GESCHICHTEN ("Improbable Stories") was one that did, the classic TWILIGHT ZONE.
Anything associated with the expression TV-magic applies to this.

Phantastic television of the sixties, among other things, is one conjuring formula:

KAR 120 C

The first image we see is that of an empty highway or a deserted airfield runway. Dark, heavy thunderclouds looming. A yellow-and-green Lotus Super 7 sportscar approaches and passes speedily. The man's face inside the car expresses firm determination. The City of London. The man is on his most important mission, he is about to see his boss.

An underground car park. His strides through a long dark corridor are underlined by pounding strikes of thunder underscoring his enraged gestures and words as he dashed his resignation papers on the desk, quits and heads home.
Next a hearse is seen pulling up behind his car. The man rushes into his home, getting his suitcases ready. A man in undertaker garb enters his house. White fog suddenly penetrates through the keyhole causing the man to stagger and fall getting a last glimpse on the City of London's highrises. Cut.

MORE: THE GERMAN DVD

Awake again he finds himself in the familiar yet entirely different place and an unforgettable prologue sets up the tone for the things to come (words in German here):

  • Wo bin ich?
  • Sie sind da.
  • Was wollen sie?
  • Informationen.
  • Auf wessen seite sind sie?
    Wir sind auf der richtigen seite. Wir wollen informationen, informationen.
  • Ich sage nichts.
  • So oder so, sie werden sprechen.
  • Wer sind sie?Die neue Nummer Zwei.
  • Wer ist Nummer Eins?
  • Sie sind Nummer Sechs.
  • Ich bin keine nummer, ich bin ein freier mensch!
  • Ha, ha, ha...!

Number Six, never that we get to learn his real name, is not going to cooperate. In almost every episode Number Six would encounter a new Number Two set out to manipulate and outwit him for apparently just one reason: why he resigned from duty and - even much more - what information there is in his head. Numbers Six attempts to escape but to no avail. His concern is with the mysterious Village superior called Number One.
