Patrick McGoohan has passed away. More at IO9.
The Prisoner is one of my all-time favorite TV shows, and there has never been anything else like it. If McGoohan were a football player (either kind) his jersey would almost certainly be retired in honor, never to be used again. Therefore, I humbly suggest the number 6 be retired from all future use. Really. Once we get over not having 6-packs (oops) 5+1-packs it will hardly be any bother at all.
Ack! Richardo Montalban too! So much for that Star Trek 19 script I was working on.
