Did You Know?


The scene where Scully is trying to find information on Mulder's whereabouts is conceived as one continuous long take until commercial. But there is at least one cut, when the camera is on one of the many elevator scenes: the dent on the door slightly but evidently moves from frame to frame. 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 »

Pretentious but fun episode
1 April 2006 | by wtdk123See 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".
