* BizarroEpisode: "The Ubiquitous Mr. Lovegrove" which one could almost say (what with Don Chaffey directing, and all) that it was a beta test for ''Series/ThePrisoner''.
** Also "Koroshi" and "Shinda Shima" which featured rather [[Film/JamesBond Bondian]] OTT situations and villains. Frankly, if that was the direction they were looking to go in, no wonder [=McGoohan=] wanted out.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Both Edwin Astley's original theme, "High Wire", and Johnny Rivers' "Secret Agent Man".
* HilariousInHindsight: The series is full of things that become either hilarious or [[{{Foreshadowing}} portentous]] in light of ''The Prisoner''. (Assuming you believe Drake is Number 6.)
** The lyric from "Secret Agent Man" that runs, "They've given you a number/And taken away your name." Considering [[Series/ThePrisoner Patrick McGoohan's next series...]]
** In a similar vein, Drake tells a character in "Yesterday's Enemies", "I want information...and I know that you deal in it." [[YouShouldKnowThisAlready As we all know,]] every Number Two in ''Series/ThePrisoner'' wants "information...information...information."
** Drake works for M9 in the hour-long episodes. The real MI-9 existed during WWII and was dedicated to helping Prisoners Of War escape and evade detection in Europe.
** Drake farewells another agent by saying "Be seeing you" in "Fish on the Hook". He will get very sick of hearing [[CatchPhrase this phrase]] [[Series/ThePrisoner later.]]
* ValuesResonance: "The Galloping Major", which is about an emerging democracy in UsefulNotes/{{Africa}}. (Describing it as FairForItsDay would be damning it with faint praise.)
