Yes, pretty terrible, IIRC. They couldn't even bring themselves to finish it off - it was that bad. And that French(?) bloke had stupid glasses.

10 Rich Flair points to the first to remember whose house some of the Tripods was filmed at.

The Tripods was not terrible. It was a superb series and the failure to make series three was entirely down to TV's dumbing downer in chief Michael Grade.

Well I was close.

Have to say I haven't seen any Tripods when I've been wandering around rural France these past couple of years. Just goes to prove what a load of old baloney the show was. Razz
