Did You Know?


The Captain of the Queen Ann, Yip Harburg (E.Y. Harburg), is named for the songwriter who, with Harold Arlen, wrote the music for The Wizard of Oz (1939). He also wrote Finian's Rainbow and the song "Lydia the Tattooed Lady" that Groucho Marx sang in At the Circus (1939). The episode plot takes place in 1939, the same year that both "The Wizard of Oz" and "At the Circus" were released. See more »


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 »

Pretentious but fun episode
1 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An ambitious if slightly pretentious episode of "The X-Files" finds Mulder trapped on a British ship that disappeared 50 years ago in the Bermuda Triangle. The ship filled with American and British passengers was taken by Nazi officers all of whom look like Spender, Skinner, the Cigarette Smoking Man and Scully. He must figure out how to survive, help the passengers and return to our time. Meanwhile, Scully must get to the region believing that Mulder will be doomed without her help.

This is an ambitious, fun if slightly pretentious episode written and directed by Chris Carter. The writing is, for the most part, top notch although Scully is given little to do but run from place to place seeking help. While better than "The Post Modern Prometheus" it's still a placeholder in the sixth season of "The X-Files".
