Some more references re. old MI episodes & James Garner movie (the latter based on Roald Dahl short story!). Other similiar hospital scenarios include Flash #300, Buffy The Vampire Slayer 6th season “Normal” & even Batman w/ Legend of the Dark Knight “Masks” 2-parter in #39 & #40.
Oh. And as for The Prisoner…if anyone’s interested…here’s a music video I produced/directed for Boston-based band, Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling. Video’s a shot x shot re-creation of the show’s opening titles & it made TIME Magazine’s Top 10 Creative Videos of 2011—http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbUhmwSObto
