amc the prisoncer

Will AMC's new take on The Prisoner be any good? I'm not sure what to think. I like the cast, and the sleek trailer makes it look like a decent thriller, but will it deliver on multiple levels the way Patrick McGoohan's 1960s classic did? We'll find out when it premieres this Sunday. And don't forget to tune in to IFC on Friday night to catch a few episodes of the original.

This week also brings a new take on the Wonder Twins (Smallville), more lizard skinned bad guys (V), a time travel tale (Stargate Universe) and more. Read on for this week's TV picks and previews.

Heroes, "Shadowboxing" – Sylar continues to play head games with Parkman, leading to a roadside murder. Claire and HRG battle Claire's evil sorority sister, and it looks like Peter is becoming addicted to his superpowers, a story idea that doesn't sound at all tiresome. Last week was fun, but this week looks like a messy one for Heroes. (Monday, 8 p.m. on NBC.)
