Watch Day of the Triffids
- 1 Season
"Day of the Triffids" is a science fiction miniseries that was made in England in 2009. It was based on the John Wyndham novel of the same name. The titular Triffids were sapient and malevolent carnivorous plants. Humans, of course, were their preferred prey. The Triffids do have one useful feature: Their bodies produce an oil that can be used for fuel. Doing so would greatly reduce global warming. To further complicate matters, a devastating solar eruption leaves 95 percent of the human race blind.
