Triangle is a very fun episode to watch. I love the continuous shots. After watch the episode with commentary by Chris Carter, I gained a greater appreciation for how the episode was filmed. It was a very daring and ambitious episode. It required a lot of preparation by the crew and actors to get it right. Ten minute takes would've been impossible so they disguised some clever edits to make it appear as if each segment was one take. In one elevator scene with Scully, the crew and extras had to scramble twice in a very short amount of time to make it look like Scully was exiting out of the elevator into a different hallway, although it was the same hallway each shot, but with different furniture and extras. Impressive. The period music was fun and catchy. I thought some of the lines were cheesy like "puttin' tame' and I'll tell you the same". Kersh as a Jamaican seemed kind of silly as well. Although this is a great episode, some of the lame dialogue and the lesser x-filesish feel prevent me from giving it full marks. All in all, Triangle is a great episode. It's no wonder it was nominated for several Emmy Awards. And as Mulder will attest to after all we went through, "there's no place no home".
