Anyone remember this brilliant BBC series from the 1980s?

Even as a devoted JNT era fanatic I can't help but feel the Tripods was simply better television at the time. Out of this world music, cool special effects that I still think hold up today and a genuinely strange and chilling tone. Series 1 is better than series 2 but they're both great.

Just awesome:

Tripods was great. Except for the crap SFX, acting, writing and everything else. I mean the gay subtext to series 2 couldn't really be called 'sub'text it was so in your face! It was the thing that the BBC threw money at instead of Doctor Who and was supposed to replace Doctor Who but didn't.

The actress died in a car accident and both the young lads gave up acting. So they were obviously onto a winner there. In all seriousness, it is very enjoyable. Especially the first series; the second series is bound to make you laugh. Pink Parrot indeed

The special effects hold up remarkably well. I was truly in awe of the City of Gold the very first time I saw it. Literally leaps and bounds ahead of anything in Blake's 7 or Classic Who. Series 2 was a lot of fun especially the boy's tumultuous journey to the Games. They never made it easy for themselves LOL
