"It's very cosmopolitan. You never know Who you'll meet next."  
All the time, every day, new connections surface. New contexts and interactions arise.

I grew up watching BBC's Doctor Who on PBS. If I've understood 530nm330hz correctly, the British program The Prisoner was a similarly common PBS staple similar cult favorite, though it wasn't one I ever ran across.

Doctor Who has been resurrected and is now on the 10th incarnation (actor-version) of The Doctor over in Britain. The SciFi Network is airing the previous season, Doctor #9, in the US currently. I think they picked it up because of the surprising success of the recent reversioning of Battlestar Galactica.

The actor who played Doctor #9, Christopher Eccleston, was rumored to have been tapped for a reversioning of The Prisoner. It currently seems he won't or at least may not be in the role, but the connection is how I learned that there is to be a new series. I hereby pass that news along to anyone who is interested but didn't already know.

And all these connections have left me dizzy.

I never watched the original Galactica, and I'm startled everytime I find myself praising the new one.

I caught a lot of old Doctor Who in college, but I'm not as well versed as many other people I've known.
