The Prisoner 6 – The General

Not to be confused with The Colonel.

Look I’m not one to go around willy nilly joining the military. But if a guy in my village was named The General, and everyone was taking orders from him, I’m not gonna say I wouldn’t be tempted to fall in line too. The General is a name with a powerful connotation that it sounds like it would be a huge mistake to cross. So I just wouldn’t. #6 did not heed this advice when I gave it to him. It’s The General, written by  Joshua Adam and aired on November 3, 1987.
