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".

One of the series involved a boy and girl (brother/sister maybe?) who were each given a glowing stone, one red, one blue. I don't remember what they were used for, but I do remember there being large creatures living in underground tunnels on an island off-shore. The boy and girl needed to go there to stop them from doing something. The creatures resembled Cousin It from the Addam's Family, except taller, more hideous-looking, and covered in a seaweed-like texture.

Another had something to do with one of the stone circles seen in many Great Britain's countrysides. It involved a presumptuous young boy who was lead to believe a tale that something (perhaps a curse) had turned people into stone, and that the circle in question, which resembled human figures, really was that.

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 remember all of them, inlcluding the one with the alien like creatures and the stones that glowed... I use to have them on tape (from tv) and am desperate to get them again on U.S. VHS or DVD. Help!

I also remember a today's special called "The Witches and the Grinnygog.

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.

Good News! This series is being redone, by the same creator of the original!

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0301969/

Don't know if it's finished yet, haven't heard. By the way I have Children of the Stones on DVD (VCD?) if anyone is interested in trading I can put it on VHS if you have something I'm interested in. I Look forward to visiting the forum!

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?

Dudes...
I'm a fellow fan of these shows.
My advice to you, get an affordable region free dvd player(i got one off amazon.com) and then start browsing amazon.co.uk website!!!
They have it all.
Timeslip,Tripods,Children of the Stones,Moonbase 3, Survivors,The Stone Tapes,Tomorrow People(box sets of the seasons),Quartermass Conclusion,and so much more!
They are about to release starcops as well!!
Now if only they'd release the 1980s version of day of the triffids, id be complete!
Happy Hunting!

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.
