Patrick McGoohan: 1928-2009

Patrick McGoohan in The Prisoner

The stars of all my favorite childhood TV shows seem to be dropping like flies. In addition to Majel Barrett-Roddenberry and Ricardo Montalbán, Patrick McGoohan passed away on Tuesday. He was 80 years old.

In additional to quite a few movies, Patrick starred as, No. 6, in one of my all-time favorite shows, The Prisoner. He also co-created the show, was executive producer, and wrote and directed some of the episodes. If you’ve never heard of the show, I highly recommend checking it out. It’s available on Netflix.

Rest in peace, Patrick.
