tripod series 1 and 2By jenjay (4 reviews) from Tonbridge , 29 Apr 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]after all these years of waiting we finally have series 2 on dvd alongside series 1. tripod fans of old and new will continue to enjoy this story of three young men in their adventures. although this may seem rather dated in the special effects area, for it's time it was innovative and clever for the small budget it had. the young cast will have you onside immidiately and ia a truly human story at the end of the day which, will make you a fan forever. although the third series of this trilogy by John Christopher was never made, a bonus music score was written by the composer ken freeman who wrote the music throughout. his style is well recognisable, dynamic and a complete joy. for all sci fi fans this is the 80's at it's best- enjoy,i know you will.

Easy family viewingBy a customer , 30 Dec 2011A nostaglic view that the whole family enjoyed. True its a bit cheesy and dated and ofcourse it finishes on a cliffhanger because it was cancelled which my kids were annoyed about - you would have to read the book!!
DatedBy Despot (1 review) from Keighley , 07 Dec 2009I remember this series as a kid, so when i saw that it was out on Dvd i thought i'd watch it to re kindle these memories, however the story line is weak the plot strays and the whole thing just looks dated, i can now see why the bbc never repeated it
Complete Rubbish avoid avoid if i could give it zero i would

Not badBy a customer from Salisbury , 04 Dec 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideClassic BBC sci-fi, just a pity they pulled the plug before the end of the trilogy. Nostalgic stuff all the same.
Entertaining, a bit rubbish but quite good fun.By a customer from London , 03 Nov 2009Pretty terrible acting, one of the kids looks like he's related to the 80's group duran duran speaks halting english with misplaced verbs to show that he is french. The writing is ok though.
It's the story about war of the worlds type tripods and the removal of freewill by the tripods to subdue the human race by capping. A couple of boys want to escape to the mountains to avoid capping and live as free men. The tripods have kept the humans at a rural level.
You have to remember It is a kids series though and quite good fun if you don't take it too seriously.
'Tripods - Series 1 And 2'By a customer from Pontefract , 26 Oct 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideI`d searched for this series after remembering it with fondness from the eighties.
After thoroughly enjoying each episode, which were a touch dated after all this time, I came to the last dvd only to find that it ended on a cliff hanger and the whole series ended right there!!!! What a let down!. What a swizz!
After checking it out on the net now realise it may be reasurected and reworked. Which will be well worth waiting for.
