While chasing a whaler, the Greenpeace boat sinks with the vessel, pulled by a mysterious force underwater and only Meeno Paloma survives. Meanwhile, after the disappearance of six ships in the Bermuda Triangle in one year, the millionaire owner of the Mineral Shipping Lines Eric Benerall hires the skeptical journalist of The Observer Howard Thomas; the scientist Bruce Geller; the offshore engineer Emily Patterson and the psychic Stan Lathem to investigate the reasons for the phenomenon in the area.

According to an interview of executive producer Dean Devlin, there are 800 digital effects shots in the miniseries. They were made by the same Oscar-winning team that was responsible for the special effects in his 1996 movie Independence Day. See more »
When Dr. Geller is looking at the obits, the birth and death dates do not match up with the text. Furthermore they are in the day/month style which in the US is only common for military publications, not a paper in Miami. See more »

An excellent made for TV show. Way above the norm.
This was a great little series. All the acting was top notch, not a single weak link.The special effects were adequate for a TV movie, ranging from pretty good to just short of great.
The story was fantastic, very original and sometimes down right creepy, especially Lou Diamond Phillips character. All the story lines tied nicely into a pretty exciting climax and a satisfying conclusion.
If TV was this good all the time i would subscribe to cable, sadly this is more of a exception then a rule, so I now own it on DVD.The DVD has a "making of" featurette that was enjoyable too.
Definitely worth watching if you are a SIFI fan.
