Don't get me wrong, I love my town. Moncton is just big enough to have everything I want, yet small enough that I can pretty much walk anywhere I really need to get to, or else not be much of a cab ride away. I have a deep, patriotic connection to it. However, even I can't remain blind to the charms of the Village from the much-loved Prisoner series. I mean, look at the perks!
Everyone is so polite
"Be seeing you" is more than just a greeting, it's a way of life in the Village. No more crossing the street to avoid saying hi to a pedestrian coming down the sidewalk in the opposite direction. No more wondering if that person will take your greeting in either official language as an insult. "Be seeing you." Yes, you will, many times. The person watching, tailing or stalking you will show up again and again. Your rapport with him/her/them will grow and blossom. (And hey, the first person #6 meets addresses him in French - "it's international" - so I'm covered both ways.)
A groovy appartment
No one pays rent in the Village. You're assigned a cool, mod apartment or house and aside from everything being bugged, everything looks real nice. I like where I live now, but do I have a sexy personal maid? No I do not.
I don't drive. Never have. No driver's permit. Not a big deal in the Village. You don't need a license to drive a golf cart, right? I'm sure you don't.
Giant board games
That's the giant chess, but I'm sure I could get the other Villagers to play other games. Giant Risk. Giant Hnefatafl. Giant Cosmic Encounter. Giant Battletech. AD&D with giant miniatures. I bet I'd be real popular. As much as I am now. At least!
The beach front
The Village has a beach! How perfect is that? No more waiting for a drive to go 25 minutes out of town just to hunt for hermit crabs and make them fight in a Mason jar! I'll have to watch for those beach balls though.
Now all I need to do is become a spy, get hold of information I shouldn't know and get myself "resigned". Piece of cake! Be seeing you...
