"Be seeing you."
Salutation from The Prisoner

The Village draws its inspiration from the 1960’s science fiction television show The Prisoner, created in 1967 by actor/director Patrick McGoohan.The Prisoner depicted a dystopian community known as "the Village" which possessed a cheerful Disneyesque appearance that belied its function as a kind of Soviet Bloc society whose citizens are under constant surveillance. Assigned numbers in place of names upon their arrival, the identities of the Village residents are unknown to one another. With no way to determine whether one is interacting with a prisoner or guard, the residents acquiesce into a resigned acceptance of their fate.
