Movie Reviews

A dark, realistic, and stunning classic
Lenny Trapp | 05/09/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've been a big follower of 60's cult television and Secret Agent Man is by far the darkest and most realistic of the spy genre. Assasinations, plot twist after plot twist, intelligent writing that will keep you on the edge of your seat--this series has it all---even a character that is showing his frustration at what his job involves (which helps to build the perfect segway into "The Prisoner"--) The set completes the 1 hour collection (and I certainly hope that they'll release the 1/2 hour episodes at some time)-- My only critique is that they should have included not only the 1 hour versions of "Shindo Shima" and "Koroshi" (as they did) but also the entire full length version as it was put together for a feature film--a few scenes were added for continuity that collectors would have appreciated-
(even moreso because the segway that ties the two episodes together in the film version actually shows a differant impression of where an agent's loyalty lies then in the pt.1 and pt.2 version---a cool little twist that you'll only catch in the film version)---At any rate---the entire series is fantastic and excluding the final two episodes, the noirish Black and White atmosphere of Secret Agent morphing into the color of The Prisoner has an almost Wizard of Oz effect if you watch the two series back to back and assume that Drake and No. 6 are indeed the same character (which I tend to believe regardless of the lingering debate amongst hardcore fans)"
The Best For Last
D. Alan | CA USA | 06/18/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'll be brief. It's rare that a TV series has some of its finest episodes toward the end of the run, but DANGER MAN is a rare show. And as far as I am concerned, the debate as to whether Drake is Number Six is really no debate at all. Of course he is. The Number Six character is never named otherwise. McGoohan had to deny it for legal reasons, but the continuity of character is there (snapping fingers when nervous, same inflection of speech, even an old friend of Drake's with the same name appears both in DANGER MAN and THE PRISONER). Enjoy these Final episodes, then watch THE PRISONER. Such a pair of series, and such a great actor to make them work, will never come around again."
But where are the 39 episodes of the first season????
L. A. Mandeville | Montreal, Canada | 08/17/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yes, yes, we got all of the one-hour episodes. But where are the first season 39 episodes? All of the 30-minutes ones that constituted the first Danger Man season with our best example of british cool Patrick Mcgoohan. Now that we have the Prisoner episodes, and all of the one-hour episodes of Danger Man, we really need to copmplete our Pat McGoohan collection! I think these 39 30-minutes episodes would fit nicely on 5 DVDs... Are you reading this, A&E?"
Sad to See it End

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Navigating its way to Japan, the Danger Man series ends with a bang, and this time in color. A definite classic for any 60's video collection."
