Did You Know?


The sixth season episode Triangle contains several references to The Wizard of Oz (1939). The captain of the British cruise liner is called Captain Yip Harburg, after uncredited co-writer (E.Y. Harburg). The ballroom singer is called Almira Gulch, after Margaret Hamilton's character, as well as the band being called "The Lollipop Guild" after the munchkin singers. Mulder's boat is called the Lady Garland, after Judy Garland. The episode title "Triangle" may also be a reference to the album cover of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon", which has also been linked convincingly to The Wizard of Oz (1939). See more »


The first time Mulder points out the Bermuda Triangle on a map (Bermuda-Puerto Rico-Florida), he points to Cuba and not Puerto Rico. See more »

One of the very best
22 April 2008 | by ametaphysicalsharkSee all my reviews

An all-time favorite. The German was pretty bad, but I can't really see much of a flaw otherwise. Mulder's first exchange of dialogue on the ship when he thought it had crossed into the 90's was hilarious ("we're having a little trouble in the white house right now, but it'll blow over, so to speak"), as was essentially the rest of the time on the ship (though the 'puttin' tame' line was quite cringe-worthy, although I imagine on purpose).

I have no problem with the 'lack of an X-Files feel'. To me, the X-Files feel was true creativity, and an episode done so creatively and excitingly, and so brilliantly directed, is just one of the best of the series.
