Now there is a title I never would have imagined. [The Day of the Triffids](http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0055894/) was one of my favorite B-grade horror movie staples. I was turned on to it by my uncle Paul when I was a small lad. I guess in the early 80s, the BBC did [a remake](http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/classic/triffids/), but I never saw it. Today I noticed (albeit about 30 days post facto), that the BBC is making yet another [TV serial remake](http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2008/nov/27/day-of-the-triffids-bbc). I am looking forward to finding a copy!
