Episode 16: The Tripods Show Notes

Henry

  • That looks quite nice
  • Someone found the casio keyboard
  • Jack looks like a psychopath
  • Couldn’t they find any actual actors?
  • That model is cool
  • 80s graphics!
  • Casio keyboards again for the theme but it is quite intimidating.
  • Everyone look busy!
  • Wah-wah-wahhhhhh
  • Someone has smeared Vaseline on the camera
  • Bad prosthetic
  • Quite a nice post-apocalypse really
  • Why did it hang around?
  • Humans suck, it is true
  • Chopping that log serves no purpose
  • Henry!
  • This seems a bit rapey
  • Ozymandias is easily the best actor here
  • Angry acting!
  • That’s gonna be a bugger to get back on
  • This score is terrible, sounds like an after school special
  • Ok, the Tripod popping up at the end was funny and cool at the same time

Jeremy

  • Wow 2089 they could have designed better cameras
  • What is this music please
  • Ooph acting
  • SoooOooo dramatic
  • Kinda cool design though
  • There’s the music again
  • This would be such a good concept, if it wasn’t so cheesy
  • That intro graphic
  • Playing instruments with no music
  • Oh Will, you need a new career
  • Ohohohoho sPoOkSy VaGrAnTs
  • Henry quote
  • Looks perfectly normal to me, except for how long they are clapping for
  • Oh that doesn’t look like it fits, like it’s blu-tacked to his head 
  • Oh now he’s doing that really badly
  • They sound scary, but would get very annoying
  • Hmm… if I were a totalitarian alien species I wouldn’t tell the generations of my slave species that I showed, would probably tell them we were always here; but hey that’s just me
  • Why aren’t these caps installed at birth?
  • Stop speaking so British
  • The Alps? Maybe Scotland?
  • Very naive boy talking with strange men
  • You know, I might read the book
  • Yeh but men made the mill behind you? The same technology 
  • Why don’t you see eye to eye?
  • I don’t trust the shit
  • OohoOphoO music again
  • Ooooh he’ll get yah with his LEDs!!!

Jennifer

  • OMG this is soooo 80’s
  • Amazing Acting Skills, said no one ever
  • This was a lot scarier when I was little!
  • WTF is going on, did it eat him? Cut to either the Terminator or Casualty can’t tell
  • And now they are partying….
  • Haha fraiddy cats!
  • Bit of a cock up reused abit of film only Jack wasn’t in it!
  • Oh Jacks Back but not Jack….
  • The Tripod is a massive design flaw
  • Ok so strange man says I am going to take you away to a place you have never heard of. Seems ok not dodgy at all.
  • Ah man now his cousin is tagging along! Bet he moans at some point!
  • OOOO Bugger!
