Review | The Prisoner

AIR DATE: Sunday 11/15

In this riveting three-night psychological thriller (based on a '60s British drama), a surveillance expert (Jim Caviezel) wakes up in The Village, where citizens have numbers for names and the enigmatic leader (Ian McKellen) wants him brainwashed. Nightmare or mind game? While the payoff mildly disappoints, even puzzle-weary Lost fans will savor the stunning visuals and skillful cast (including New Moon's Jamie Campbell-Bower). (AMC, 8 P.M.)
