YMMV: Danger Man
  • Bizarro Episode: "The Ubiquitous Mr. Lovegrove" which one could almost say (what with Don Chaffey directing, and all) that it was a beta test for The Prisoner.
    • Also "Koroshi" and "Shinda Shima" which featured rather Bondian OTT situations and villains. Frankly, if that was the direction they were looking to go in, no wonder McGoohan wanted out.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Both Edwin Astley's original theme for "Danger Man" and Johnny Rivers' "Secret Agent Man".
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The lyric from "Secret Agent Man" that runs, "They've given you a number/And taken away your name." Considering 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." As we all know, every Number Two in The Prisoner wants "information...information...information."
    • Drake farewells another agent by saying "Be seeing you" in "Fish on the Hook". He will get very sick of hearing this phrase later. (Assuming you believe Drake is Number 6.)
