Not Worth the Electrons to Show It
4 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I normally like to watch shows like this. Although I do not particularly believe in UFOs, alien abductions, and such; a well presented set of situations, incidents, and possibilities can be very interesting, and even thought provoking. Unfortunately, this series, and specifically this episode, does none of that.

This episode was based heavily on the book, "The Dragon's Triangle" by Charles Berletz. Berletz was discredited decades ago for his errors and fabrications in the book; "The Bermuda Triangle". This alone knocks the show out of contention for believability.

The show fails to counterpoise the suggested encounters, unexplained losses, or mysterious events with any possible explanations. Everything is "the unexplainable". Some of the things presented just beg for simple explanations. Sudden "shifts" in position may be simple poor dead reckoning. Ships and aircraft are lost at sea everywhere, nothing is described as to why this area is special. Further, the episode does not describe why the losses are odd. Interestingly, this was followed on another channel by the "Raging Planet" series, with an episode titled "Sea Storm", describing exactly how ships and aircraft disappear unexpectedly at sea.

One must also question a series which has almost none of its photographs or video images match the commentary. A story about a small Japanese research vessel whose disappearance in the 1950s is unexplained shows first a U.S. Navy World War II South Dakota class battleship and then an assault convoy, also from that war. Following pictures are of World War II naval equipment and American personnel. Such inaccuracies continue throughout the episode, including such errors as U.S. heavy bombers being shown in the place of small Japanese cargo aircraft. While it is obviously impossible to include documented video or photographs of many of the situations described in the show, such gross errors, or simple editing laziness, must call everything presented into serious question.

Overall, this episode was typical for the series, and presented no useful information. It contributed nothing to the genre, except perhaps an example of how not to deal with "the unknown". Anyone who thinks they learned something from this is suffering from some serious self delusion.
