Did You Know?


While speaking to the Inuit girl Mr. Goodsir mentions to her that he was told the Inuit call the land they are in Nunavut. The native residents of the area have referred to the northern areas of Canada as Nunavut for centuries, likely millennia, though since 1870 that area was called the Northwest Territories by the government of Canada. In 1999 the Northwest Territories were divided, with the northeastern parts being renamed Nunavut in honor of the native Inuits long standing claim to the land. Nunavut is now the largest territory in Canada being 1,750,000 km2 (680,000 sq mi) in area, making roughly the same size as Mexico, though it is one of the most remote and sparsely populated areas in the world with a population of only 35,944 according to the 2016 census.

Ep 3 = Unneccessay and Dissapointing - UGH
15 April 2018 | by Colonial-OakSee all my reviews

WTF happened ???

All was good with THE TERROR until this episode. Its a severe deviation from the horror theme, more focused on displaying brutal 19th Century naval punishments, resulting in unnecessarily bare-assed naked men getting whipped on their backs and buttocks ...

No TERROR, no monster, no suspense, just filler side-story crap that has np bearing on the story ... the whole episode was pointless and a waste of time ...

If you are streaming THE TERROR after their initial presentation date, skip Episode 3, go straight to Ep 4 ...

For those of us watching it "live" on each Episode presentation dates, lets hope the rest of the season does not continue to deteriorate like Ep 3 ...
