I waited 16 years for this!,
This review is from: The Tripods: Series 1 [DVD]  (DVD)When I was nearly 5 years old i remember watching a series called The Tripods on a saturday afternoon!
This was one of the most frightening programmes i have ever watched (i was only 5 remember).
Years passed after it was cancelled and when I was 12, i was given a copy of the White Mountains to read at school. As soon as i realised that this was the first book in the series of The Tripods I was fixated! I bought the rest of the books and frequently checked the TV guide in hope it would render a re-run, but to no avail.
Years passed and all of a sudden out of nowhere it has re-appeared and now it is like reliving a small chapter, although an extremely important one, of my childhood.
The chills that run through me as i watch this are like nothiung I can describe. This is ultimely one of my fave TV shows of all time.
Will this ever be beaten in those terms? No, probably not, unless of course they actually make the last series, The Pool of Fire!
How cruel to be cancelled before it reached it's climax. Oh Well, This is still very highly reccomended!
