YOU are Number 6!
A very loose spin off from spy show "Danger Man" (also known as "Secret Agent") - McGoohan plays "Number 6", a prisoner in "The Village" - a microcosm for the communities in which we live. All he has to do is play along, and he can have a nice peaceful, if somewhat controlled and monitored existence.....
The look and feel of the show is hard to define, but I have heard it described as "What if MI5 was running the chill room at a rave?" Works for me. Here's a taste -
Ace published three paperbacks (pretty scarce) based on the series, and while many feel the first by SF writer Thomas Disch is the best, I actually prefer the third, as it really captures the dreamlike feel of the show. Don't worry too much about number two..... heh heh heh! They were republished as hardbacks in the '80s - I'm sure they turn up on eBay if you're inclined to seek them out.
Amazingly enough two of my passions combine head-on when Jack "King" Kirby did a well executed (but unpublished) comic adaption during his stint at Marvel in the 1970's..... here's some pages to give you a taste.......
Looks good huh? So anyway I went ahead and reconstructed the thing from various sources, hither and yon... and here you go!

Here's a nice overview, also from youtube, where you will find lots more about and from the show...
