Off the top of my head there was the album named Trilogy from Emerson, Lake & Palmer.


I'll get back to you later on the other items.

@tsarstepan,
I was not overwhelmed by "Hitchhiker's Guide", but it did have the distinction of being the first four book trilogy in science fiction.

in my opinion, Bowie had at least three trilogies of albums, the first trilogy was based on style, a sort of glammed out folk/psychedelia with the albums, Space Oddity, The Man Who Sold the World and Hunky Dory

the second trilogy was based on a character, Ziggy Stardust, beginning with The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, following up with Aladdin Sane and ending with Diamond Dogs

the third trilogy was based on location, the Berlin albums comprised of Low, Heroes and Lodger

The Lord of the Rings trilogy is my favorite movie trilogy followed very closely by the original Star Wars trilogy. The Indiana Jones trilogy is worth an honorable mention.

The best book trilogy books I have read recently was the Hunger Games series which my son made me read before the movies came out. My favorite all time is "Battle Circle" from Piers Anthony.

Music trilogy? Not really a trilogy, but the first 3 albums Marillion put out with Fish were pretty amazing. Rush: Moving Pictures, Signals, Grace Under Pressure

@djjd62,
Yes, it eventually became a 6 book trilogy. And I still don't know why it was called a trilogy, but that's Doug Adams for you.

@roger,
My favorite tryptich shows us some peaceful scenes of life on earth and surrounding alternative lifestyles. Its called , interestingly enough, The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymous Bosch (there's a name we sadly dont use a lot ) , even though we seem to be living in it .

@farmerman,
Yeah, Bosch's art could definitely be termed 'alternative'.

@farmerman,
among other things, we collect "wintertime" Japanese tea sets. These are usually created as sets of three "cups", and the wintertime tea bowls are usually more closed than the summertime bowls. My father strated this when he was, after WWII, stationed near Kobe where he was aiding in setting up food distribution centers and occupation billets. He was given a set of Meji and he then started to buy others (just tea sets). When Mrs F and I were in Kobe (I was supposed to be working) we met some potters and were explained how the tea bowls and sets are designed for the seasons (open bowls for summer and fall, and closed bowls to keep in the heat, for winter and spring).
So , we built on dads collection fter he passed and I built a vry simple thin walnut cabinet with beveled glass doors to hold the collection). We really should sell em or give em to the kid.

The number three was always considered better luck in Japanese tea serving sets. ( I didnt mention the little pots which were usually pottery AND iron)

@farmerman,
Movies? Its a toss-up. Either the 3 Hannibal Lecter movies or Back to the Future. Each is enjoyable as family entertainment (If your family is named Adams)

I've liked the Danzig Trilogy (The Tin Drum, Cat and Mouse, Dog Years) very much.
While the first book was a madatory read at school, I read the other two voluntarily. [All three books of Wallenstein by Schiller was a mandatory read - I just read the summaries elsewhere.]
