The Prisoner 12 – A Change of Mind

As the title says, this week we have a Change of Mind in how good The Prisoner is.

I kind of wish we gave titles to these episodes because this one would have definitely been “Misogynist Moment of the Week.” Everyone talks about separating the art from the artist but what do you do when the art IS the artist? What do you do when the misogyny of Patrick McGoohan is also the misogyny of #6? This seems like a philosophical question of the kind of complexity that exceeds the purview of this podcast. It’s A Change of Mind, written by Roger Parkes and aired on December 15, 1967.

11:37: “Where’s Waldo?” is “Where’s Wally?” everywhere outside of North America.
28:55: Here’s the transorbital lobotomy from Bioshock Infinite.
40:05: Apparently the Lord Kitchener poster in Britain came before the U.S.’ Uncle Same poster.
52:30: If you want to listen to us talk about shows like Doctor Who and Torchwood, check out our Doctor Who podcast, Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast.
