1996-01-02 00:00:00 - One of the best things made in recent years. - (John Lonsdale <WILDDUCK@WILDDUCK.demon.co.uk>)


As a dedicated follower of one of the best shows to grace the 'magic picture machine' I was glad to see a newsgroup dedicated to it. Not since 'The Prisoner' has a show entertained me in this way. As a UK watcher I was wondering how many seasons has it so far been going on for ? NB I think the end of the X-Mas special had to be the most depressing show ive seen for some time. Give the man all he wants then try to smash his last hopes. The finnish on we wish you a 'merry X-Mas'. Excellent. -- John Lonsdale <In a white wine sauce with a small side order of salad>

Perhaps >this is one of the advantages of having the programme sponsored? It certainly makes a pleasant change to be able to read a news group without filtering out spoilers. -- John Lonsdale <All things being equal what a lousy day this has been>

The finnish on we wish you a 'merry X-Mas'. Excellent. Glad to know that the U.K. is aboard. Sorry to bum you out during the holidays but Tom's life reflects the "struggle" and I guess there just wasn't time off for the holidays. OTOH, Tom's strength and his belief in himself is what keeps him going. That's the good news. Larry

Congratulations on a great series, Larry. I read somewhere that you were planning to move away from the more surreal episodes. Is this true? While I agree that 45 minutes of deep paranoia every week can be a bit much, I'd hate to think we've seen the last of stories like Turnabout or The Spider Webb. Once again. Keep up the good work.
