Did You Know?


In Season 5 "The X-Files" began filming in 1.78:1 wide-screen, the now-common ratio for TV programs. However, for approximately ten minutes the ratio switches to approximately 2.20:1, which is almost the ratio of most standard action films. This was done in order to fit more action into those scenes. See more »


The action in this episode takes place prior to the United States' entry into World War II; the analogue to Scully claims to be working for the Office of Srategic Services (OSS), but that agency did not come into being until 13 June 1942, about six months after the US entered the conflict. 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 »

Dana Scully: Save your own ass, sir. You'll save your head along with it.

Beyond the Sea Where I Died
6 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Everyone has their favorite episode of The X-Files that isn't Bad Blood or something by Darin Morgan and Triangle is mine and it possibly exceeds all the others. The sixth season is the first season I watched live and Triangle is the first I fell in love with, so there's nostalgic reasons. Also, I love episodes that mention or deal with parts of news or history that make me want to research further. WWII and everything about the Bermuda Triangle did that for me. Also the sweeping continuous cinematography, the swing music, the present day characters playing different characters in the 1930s. It must have been as fun to make as it's fun to watch. Everyone is in it, from your shady CSM (alas the only Syndicate member) to Skinner and the Lone Gunman. This is another tale where something is happening to Mulder, the consequential story of another one of his pursuits (where he ditches Scully), but Scully is just as BA in the present as she in in the past. I'm still not completely sure if it all happened or if it was all in Mulder's head - the black eye suggests it was real - and you're either a Mulder or a Scully on where you stand in that matter. And my unashamed shipper heart sores every time I watch this episode. Season six is different; a little experimental and a little more humorous. And while I miss the Vancouver vibe, this episode will always be my special fave.
