I knew when I saw it - this TV show predicts the future. It was just a matter of time. And now that future is here.

I don't know how many remembers that old TV show, and maybe because the details are a bit silly - aliens using three-legged giant robot vehicles with trumpety sounds and rays to keep people under control - it was discarded as just childish fiction and long forgotten.

But there were important core points that differentiate 'The Tripods' from other, similar, sci-fi or childish shows or stories. I even read the books, and I have to say - it's pretty chilling. At the time, it felt as if someone that has seen the future, is trying to give us a message and warning in the guise of a 'silly sci-fi story', exactly like the character 'Ozymandias' pretends to be crazy, but is really telling the truth. So there are parallels to be seen for those that have their eyes open.

The premise of 'The Tripods' is that there was a war between humans of Earth and invading aliens, and realistically, the aliens won. (I don't usually use this 'a'-word', but since they're evil in the story, I think it's appropriate)

The aliens then implemented a few things to keep people under control, while they roam around the planet in their silly three-legged (no reason for a travel vehicle to have three legs, except it's "cool", the author even admitted this) vehicles. Now, the TV show depicts them as scary, and rightfully so - these huge, majestic, free-roaming three-legged things do send the chills to the spine when you first see the show (or read the books).

However, what's more interesting - and consequently, more chilling - is that in the story, the aliens control human beings by implementing a "cap" directly on their skull, that changes their personality immediately and permanently. This is done whenever someone reaches a certain age (was it 16 years old, can't remember), and a 'capping ritual' is performed on their birthday. This 'cap' is like a microchip of sorts, except it's a bit larger than we're used to, and in the TV show, it's also masonically pyramid-shaped and has seeming 'circuitry' within the shape.

The books are very old, and the TV show is from early 1980s, so you can expect great synth music and such, and interesting, practical effects (that sometimes don't quite look realistic).

The rest of the story doesn't really matter, but what I find fascinating, is that the society in the post-war world is structured so that everyone thinks 'capping' is normal, and everyone expects you to do it, but sometimes it goes wrong and it ruins your brain, so you become a 'vagrant' - a bit dangerous, unpredictable, unable to work or be useful to the society, they're like 'crazy homeless people' that are being fed by others as a 'duty of mercy' type of system.

Free, 'uncapped' people are almost unheard of, but they of course have a rebellious group somewhere in the 'white mountains', and our protagonist notices how much his previously witty and strong-personality brother is like a docile robot after the capping, and is scared to go through with the 'capping', and escapes.

The more you look into this story, discarding the 'required story elements' and look at the core of what society has become, what everyone expects, how everyone behaves, and how the 'cap' sometimes misfires so it basically makes you crazy, is pretty chilling when you compare it to what's going on with vaccines.

There's a tremendous pressure to get everyone vaccinated right now, and if we think of vaccine as the 'cap' of the real world, the story of 'The Tripods' becomes eerily scary, as it parallels current reality so much. Those that are vaccinated sometimes die, or develop physiological, emotional, mental and spiritual malfunctions and disorders. They even sometimes get the bug, while previously, they were completely healthy.

It's taken for granted, just like in the society of 'The Tripods', that OF COURSE everyone is going to get vaccinated. No one knows what the 'cap' actually does, but no one also researches it or cares - it's the societal pressure and fear of becoming an outcast that leads people to willingly be capped like sheep to slaughter. People seem to behave the same way about the vaccines. They talk about it as if it's a normal part of life that everyone must go through at some point, and it's a good thing if you 'can get it done'. Even my dentist casually mentioned to me after asking if I have been vaccinated, how now it'd be easy for me to get it done.

I have to say I was a bit startled to suddenly be so casually pushed towards that, as if it's an everyday thing, like getting a cup of coffee or having breakfast.

No one knows what the 'cap' consists of, or what it does, exactly. But once you are 'capped', it's irreversible, your old self is destroyed, and you are now a sheeplike drone without a personality. Unless it backfires, in which case you become a crazy vagrant, unable to function in the world properly, spouting nonsense constantly.

No one knows what's in the vaccine, or what the long-term effects are (or even short-term). Individuals seem to react differently. I would try to find links, but I've researched a lot in non-english sites, so that would become cumbersome. I am sure anyone here can easily research these things.

Once you're vaccinated, it's irreversible - you might not be able to think the same way you were able to before, and you might die due to 'spike proteins' affecting your bloodstream, and all that.

The details of what the vaccines really do, are not important for my point; I am merely comparing and finding parallels between the 'real-world society and reactions' and 'The Tripods' world society and reactions', and there are alarmingly scary parallels.

We have to ask the questions, WHY do these known 'elitists' want people to be vaccinated? Why are they seemingly in such a rush to get it done? Why would some computer nerd without medical background be in control of some world-population-vaccination-project?

When people like -that- want something so passionately, you can pretty much deduce something bad at least possibly exists inside those vaccines. They're not even proper, FDA-approved vaccines, and the pharma corporations CAN NOT be held liable.

How..why? Why wouldn't they be able to be held liable for what THEY do to people?

This couldn't be more fishy or more scary when you consider the old 'The Tripods' story, the 'caps' and then think about everything we know about the 'vaccine', and people's reactions to it, and the cults that almost violently push people to be injected.

The mask-nonsense should have been over a long time ago once the studies have been published that masks do not protect people, but are in fact, quite unsanitary things, and people's health would be much better without them. But yet you see almost everyone wearing masks.. how docile and sheeplike have people come? You'd be forgiven for thinking everyone is already 'capped' and just doing their alien overlords' bidding..

We all know (or should know by now) that the 'elitists's goal is to get everyone microchipped and under direct mind control. Getting everyone vaccinated would definitely be a huge step towards that direction, if I was one of them.. that would definitely be my number one plan.

I wonder what it takes to get the frog to try to jump out of the warm water in the kettle before the frog's leg muscles are too soft for it to be able to jump out anymore..

Everyone leaves out the part where the frogs actually had lobotomies before the experiment. At the time, the brain was not understood well. In this case, the dumbing down of the public school system does the trick.

The reason the tripod machines had three legs is that the beings designed them based on their own anatomy. They were in fact three legged. Also 1967 is not that old for a book series.

You left the part where the tripod beings were controlled by energy beings that were as advenced, or more so, above them as the tripods were above humans. They were called the cognos. Now if we can find out who is controlling our governments this way, we might be able to do something about it.

When the cognos are delt with, this problem will be over.

Want to know what they almost never get? Covid. What percent have a serious reaction to the vaccine? What percent would have gone on to have a Covid infection with serious complications? If you aren't willing to discuss those issues you aren't actually interested in the truth.

As a big fan of the Doctor sine the late 1970s, I never heard of the Tripods. I'm sure I would have tuned in if they were broadcasting it from Canada back then. I caught a lot of Canadian TV from the Detroit area when I lived there.


The epic story of an invaded earth was shown in 1984 and 1985. It centred on a young man called Will who was struggling against the Tripods - giant three-legged machines that stalked the land, keeping humanity enslaved. The Tripods was based on John Christopher’s trilogy of books.

Well, most of it was. The BBC did two series, and then cancelled the third - so we saw Will and his friends escape from England, fall in love, harvest grapes, join the resistance, invade the city of the Tripods, escape and then ... well, we never really found out what happened next.

Doctor Who's replacement? The series was partly intended as a replacement for Doctor Who - it took over the show’s old Saturday afternoon timeslot and format, but replaced Doctor Who’s tight budget and outlandishly actor-ish style with a lavish production style and a cast of sexy young unknowns.

Somebody read the books...
Lol
I was always disappointed that they didn't finish the tv series.

But you are right. Many times a story is not represented in context or key details are left out
Robin hood for instance.
Rob from the rich and give to the poor is not what was happening. He was robbing the tax man who worked for a corrupt government.

I remember this on telly

No substitute for the Doc, but it was OK.
I am not sure I watched series 2 though.

Was it not just a War of the Worlds ripoff?
