We showed you a bunch of Triffid-less photos from the BBC's upcoming Day of the Triffids a couple of weeks ago, which made us curious but weren't quite enough to get us stoked. Now along come three clips from the the miniseries' first installment, and though we're still being teased with only a glimpse of Triffid tendrils, there's enough excitement here for us to plant ourselves (sorry!) in front of our TVs once a U.S. airdate is announced.

The Day of the Triffids, based on John Wyndham's classic novel of killer plants feasting on humans when most of the world is struck blind, will air in the U.K. on BBC One on Dec. 28 and 29 at 9 p.m.
