Does anyone else remember The Third Eye? It aired on Nickelodeon in the early 80s. It was a set of different sci-fi series dealing with supernatural and/or unexplained events. I've not seen much quality sci-fi programming come from that network since. Are You Afraid of the Dark tried, but it was too "childish".
Yes, I remember the The Third Eye series as a kid. It was on Nickelodean. There were several stories. The Haunting of Cassie Palmer, Into the Labyrinth, Children of the Stones, and something with the word mountain in it...
I watched those shows too and remember them well. They were primarily responsible in making me into a "magical thinker" as a child....a condition I later became highly annoyed by. Anyway, The Third Eye would come on after 'Black Beauty' (another British show, right? "Under the Mountain" was the other show. I remember one episode where the 'bro and sis' came upon a creepy guy sitting on a park bench (who resembled the hotel clerk in the movie Dagon). To prove that he was special or somthing, he held his hand over a candle flame for a long time without feeling pain. The Third Eye has never been seen by anyone I've talked to until today. Cool
I thought I was the only one who remembered "The Third Eye." That program rocked! I thought it was on Nick, but figured I was remembering wrong. I'd love to get it on tape/dvd, too. Let me know if anyone finds it. Thanks!
Hi, I'm chrimsun a new member here. Under the Mountain is the other title in the Third Eye series. That came from New Zealand.
Oh yeah, more on the Third Eye. Boy that brings back memories...
Welcome to the site, Chrimsun!
i am desprately trying to find all of the nickelodeon "the third eye" episodes i can on vhs or dvd. i am in the states, too. for a very long time i thought i had dreamt up many of the features of "into the labyrinth" and "children of the stones." they have even melded together somewhat in my memory. somehow i had remembered rothgo in a scene with the slug creatures from "under the mountain." (!)

Does anyone remember a similar show on Nick that the kids had a special belt that allowed them to teleport to different areas. Was this part of the Third Eye?
The Tomorrow People
Looking to BUY episodes of the New Tomorrow People, The Third Eye and The Witches of Grinnygog.
Have you tried Amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com?
This guy seems to have all the episodes of 'Third Eye,' and is selling: [link deleted]
I would pay top dollar to get my hands on any of those episodes! Any info on where to find them!?
i hadn't even started school yet when i started watching this show so, i must of been 3-4 years old and, this show really scared the out of me. what a creepy show to have on a children's network. who else would be at home at the times it aired but kids too young for school and mothers that just sat their kids in front of the television sets, not knowing their kids are crapping their pants because some thing has a big old scary ass third eye. it'd be cool to get my hands on those shows so i can watch them as a grown up.
I never heard if this show till now, but it sounds interesting. I was more of an "Are You Afraid of the Dark" kid myself. I remember when I was really young I'd change the channel half-way through. When I got a little older I'd watch the entire episodes and love them.
It's very reassuring that there are people out there that remember all of these shows (Tomorrow People, Under the Mountain, Into the Labyrinth, Children of the Stones). For a while, I had thought that I dreamed them all up with an 11 year old vivid imagination (which is how old I was when the shows aired in the US). Thanks for bringing back some memories.
