    Patrick Mcgoohan Is My Hero.

    Since AMC remade the series, it was On Demand for a while. That was how I was introduced to it. I watched an episode each night, when everyone else went to bed so I wouldn't be disturbed. It was so special for me; I looked forward to it all day. Luckily, the episodes are still on...

    Who Is Number One?

    A Psychological Superhero

    I love the idea of a psychological superhero. The enigmatic Number Six is for all intents and purposes just that, a psychological superhero. While bullets don’t bounce off his chest nor can he bend steel in his bare hands, he can do something much more extraordinary...
