Bastardization of The Prisoner

Classics can't be left alone in their original glory. Newcomers, armed with all manner of new video and computer tomfoolery, "remake" these classics mainly because they're only mechanics - technological make-up artists.

Patrick McGoohan is rolling over in his grave.
