Complete Prisoner scripts - and more!

Zack writes, "Here's a collection of PDFs of ALL the original scripts to Patrick McGoohan's surreal cult classic, along with several unmade scripts and several multiple drafts of episodes. It's the next-best-thing to being in The Village, minus the brainwashing and evil weather balloons."

    Q: "Who is number one?"
    A: "YOU are, number six!"

    Edit: Most likely "P" is for Patrick... other scripts refer to the little butler (played by Angelo Muscat) as "Angelo." All right, I'm obsessing, but I watched the original US broadcasts on CBS back in 1967 (I was 11 years old!) and it's still the damnedest thing I've ever seen on television.

    I mean that in a good way.
