Trivia

The sixth season episode Triangle contains several references to The Wizard of Oz (1939). The captain of the British cruise liner is called Captain Yip Harburg, after uncredited co-writer (E.Y. Harburg). The ballroom singer is called Almira Gulch, after Margaret Hamilton's character. Mulder's boat is called the Lady Garland, after Judy Garland. The episode title "Triangle" may also be a reference to the album cover of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon", which has also been linked convincingly to The Wizard of Oz (1939). See more »

Goofs

When Mulder has stolen the parallel Spender's uniform, an SS Untersturmfuehrer's (junior lieutenant's) one, and is trying to sneak away, a lower rank German soldier (probably a petty officer) asks him if he found something. He uses the informal pronoun "du", inconceivable by a subaltern especially in Nazi army, instead of formal "Sie". Instead of "Hast du was gefunden?", he should have said "Haben Sie was gefunden?". However, since the WW2 era sequences are as likely to be a hallucination as time travel, this may be deliberate and based upon Mulder's lack of knowledge. See more »

Quotes

Mulder: [when being apprehended by the Nazis] You think you're so big and tough now, just wait 'till you get to Russia. I hope you enjoy the cold!

Long takes
26 April 2007 | by (Jax, Fla) – See all my reviews

This is the first episode of this show I have seen.

I don't know if this is the norm for X-Files but, in this day of quick and short shots linked together to form action like in music videos, there are numerous extended takes which are simply superb! To see Gillian try to get some information to save the agent out of time aboard the Queen Anne, going from floor to floor to the parking garage without a cut in the cinematography is amazing! Also great is the music soundtrack of Benny Goodman-like swing music, appropriate to 1939 when some of this program was set! I have no idea why I missed seeing this series, but I have concluded that I need to see more.
