"Free For All"
UK Airing: October 20, 1967
US Airing: June 29, 1968
The Prisoner is thrust into the politics of the Village as he runs for the position of Number Two.
John and writer Jim Beard discuss an episode that was produced second and yet aired fourth and that bothers Jim. They discuss how the episodes actually played out on television regardless of production, how this episode is timeless in its commentary on elections, and the dig the episode takes at the Fifth Estate.
