AMC's "Prisoner" remake

Okay, I'm an intelligent and fairly cultured person, but I have to admit, the 2009 remake of the 60s tv series The Prisoner is kind of tough for me to wrap my head around.

Ian McKellen kicks ass as per usual. And the writing seems top notch. But seriously I've watched 4 hours of the mini-series and I'm not any less confused than I was at the beginning.

The Patrick McGoohan original tv show wasn't this confusing was it?

Jamie Campbell Bower, and Jim Caviezel sure are pretty though.

Hey Kat I finally figured out the Prisoner (only after the last episode!) It was pretty kickass ending-should I give it away here? Yamini

I just got around to watching the final 2 hours last night. And while I enjoyed the ending and feel a little less confused, this mini-series was still a big ol' mind-fuck to me.
An enjoyable one though.
