I was such a huge fan when it was on 20 years ago. Still looks good now.

I've never seen it, but I come across it when flicking through my tv guide, is it any good?

One of my favourite programs back in the day - I hope I can view on freeview. May not suit the young ones more sophisticated taste but I always found 'number 6' kind of attractive and I knew him through a mutual friend back when he was famous (years ago smile).

why must it be on so late ? Patrick McGoohan is excellent

We watched it in the 80's I think, we went to Portmerion (where it was filmed) for a day when there was a big No 6 meet on - we'd never heard of it before then as it was before our time!

It is still pretty weird!

Ch 61 is freeview. There's an episode at 9 & 10 every night. I was such a fan when it was repeated in the 90s and had a video boxset. I've been to Portmeirion which is fab. I think the series still looks great.

Just found this, episode 5 now but watched it in the 60s/70s when it first came out, I must have been about 12 and my parents let me stay up to watch it.

I saw it when it was on The First Time [old gimmer emoticon] I was in my late teens, it was a cult programme ie teens watched it and we all felt we were so cool grin (And we were, of course wink )

Haven't managed to get to Portmeirion yet though...
