Amusingly, the Facebook version of the poll is trending the other way! Our team was itself split, so I am not surprised the poll respondents are as well.

26 years later: we got this tech back two years ago (after a 15-plus–year hiatus) and now things are just starting to ramp up.

colloquialisms are hard. I for one am not enough of a sailor to ever have learned how to say “tack” in any other language.

A really nice way I've found to do this is stating it still, but as more of, "My character struggles against the urge to do x before ultimately doing y." It lets me still state what they would do without impeding. Sometimes it has led to my party telling me to do x instead of y!

It’s interesting as a curiosity, and to understand the background to the semi-sequel. And McGoohan is an acerbic delight. But not something I felt I needed to watch the whole series of. (Unlike The Prisoner.)

I recently noticed that Amazon Prime also has Secret Agent / Danger Man, the predecessor series!
