Am 1 The Prisoner?

"Who are you? 1 am the new number 2. Who is number 1? You are number 6."
Looks like 1 am a number after all ;- )
 1've been watching the 1967 TV show The Prisoner on DVD.
1 am about half way through the series, but 1 did cheat by watching the last episode Fall Out, where number 6 escapes off the island.
It's a quirky show and can become a bit annoying with it's almost Groundhog Day
(What time does the clock start every morning in Groundhog Day? 
6 o'clock!)
In The Prisoner, the show always starts off with number 6 greeting a TV screen with the almost always new number 2 and this back and forth dialogue between 6 and 2,"Who are you? 1 am the new number 2. Who is number 1? You are number 6.".
Which is cryptically giving the game away, because in the last episode we see that number 6 is also number 1.
And probably number 2 as well.

 The movie Bronson also eludes to this theme in the end of the movie where a prison guard who uncannily looks like Bronson locks Bronson's cell door from the inside, more or less stating that Bronson is really his own jailer in effect.
Bronson is played by Tom Hardy who also plays Bane in the Batman film The Dark Knight Rises
Bane is also a prisoner, but manages to escape his prison and unleash Bronson's tantrums on to the world.
Ironically, Batman is also a prisoner in this film and makes many attempts to escape.  
This is a picture of 1 of the forklifts 1 actually drove.
 1've written previously about my Charles Bronson dream -
Look At All The Happy Creatures :- ( 
"1 dreamed that 1 was driving a forklift,like the one 1 drive at work, on a narrow ledge about 40 stories high in the air, and  
Charles Bronson was doing mickey flips off my raised forks and landing back on them,while 1 was almost frozen in terror by the height, and this guy's death-wish (for want of a better word ;-)"
 and my blue car dream;
Blue Cars Too
Green Volkswagen on the Synchronicity Roundabout  
"1 had a very vivid dream, where 1 was being pushed up a hill in a pale sky blue 
(very close to this background colour on which this blog is written) 
toy car by my dead Father-in law, but 1 was an adult like 1 am now.
And 1 had to sit on the boot with my legs astride the doors, as 1 was too big.
He pushed me up the hill, and then 1 coasted down the hill, by myself, and into a house, which in the dream 1 believed to be mine and my family's, but isn't in our real life."
On the subject of number 2, 1 wrote this post just over a year ago,
Freedom From The "Inside Out"???
1 also wrote about The Prisoner TV show appearing as an article in The Gnostic 2 in this post,
Nothing But A Number?

I visited Portmeirion where they filmed Prisoner in the 90s. Saw a man with webbed toes! I'll never forget it!
