Much More Sad

See, I said one shouldn't complain, because one could have something really big to be sad about, and along it comes:

The Prisoner was profound. I have always said so. A little glimpse of what it means to be free, to be an individual, to be part of a community, to be alienated or soulless. He left us that as his artistic legacy, and we should all be grateful for it and try to live up to some of the challenges he left us on the show: to be authentic and honest and have principles that we won't compromise. His loss makes me sadder than I was before, but thinking about the show, I am happier, in a poignant, nostalgic way.

Oh, I'd go further, Jodi: there will never be a more heroic character on television.

Certainly not any of the new folks, that is for sure.

I'd kind of held out a hope he'd make an appearance in the new Prisoner, to make it something, but.. damn. :-/
