The Prisoner

The Prisoner, one of the most bizarre and enigmatic television series of all time, is about to be "reinvented." As with all remakes, the question that comes to mind is: Why? If a television show or movie was good to begin with, why is there this obsession to remake it? If it was crap to begin with, by all means, but so many good movies and TV shows are made into new bad movies and TV shows. Remakes are in general a lazy way far studios to try to cash in and sadly, people keep biting. It also strikes me as illustrating a lack of originality and creativity. But when did that ever stop Hollywood?
