There was this TV show where a white ball would come floating in from the water. That is all I sort of remember...I think it was like a spy show, James Bondish type. I don't believe it was the "Man from U.N.C.L.E"

Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

The wife says I'm crazy and need to change my meds. I say I used to have to watch it in english class in school.

I'm quite old at 51 but I still remember it. For your interest, they are either making a movie remake of the show, or a tv series remake. I can't remember which. I'm guessing when the ball catches up to him like in the show, it won't just switch scenes from him being outside to inside, the special effects nowadays will have one or the other dissolving into it.

A classic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Prisoner)! Patrick McGoohan starred. :D:D

I scanned the above reference, but can't see where it first aired in the US. I know it's been on reruns occasionally - like on BBC America - but not sure when it first arrived.
