The Triangle

Drama . Adventure . Action . Sci-Fi & Fantasy

Set against the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle, this event will focus on a disparate group of professionals, brought together to investigate the dangerous truths behind one of the greatest legends of our time. In The Triangle, billionaire Eric Benirall is losing his cargo ships, and their crews, at a frightening pace-and now, he wants answers. His bemused, handpicked team of subject-specific experts include lead skeptic and tabloid journalist Howard Thomas, ocean resource engineer Emily Patterson, scientist/adventurer Bruce Gellar and psychic Stan Latham. Pulled together with the promise of unlimited funding for their research and the chance for once-in-a-lifetime riches, the team sets out to solve this most daunting of anomalies. When a jetliner disappears over the Triangle, bizarre, un-explainable occurrences begin to affect each member of Benirall's team. When the government takes an alarming interest in their work, our crew is drawn into something far more dangerous than they had believed possible. A research expedition with the promise of riches soon becomes a frantic, head-turning ride through the unstoppable force that is The Triangle.

    Familiar, formulaic fun, but one night too long. [9 Dec 2005, p.81]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Triangle boasts an attractive cast and some clever twists, but it often has to stretch to fill time.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Tom Gliatto

    The narrative seems unduly baggy and stretched out, nothing so sharply defined as a triangle. More like a rhomboid. [12 Dec 2005, p.39]

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    Amusingly, head-spinningly over-the-top.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Somewhere within this bloated six-hour miniseries there's a lean, mean four-hour miniseries trying to escape.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Ned Martel

    The plot knots are Gordian, but the writer, Rockne S. O'Bannon, successfully picks them apart. What suffers is the dialogue, which often strains to explain all the science in offhand conversation.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    A solid cast and marquee auspices make this effects-heavy exercise watchable enough even when "The Triangle" grows obtuse.

    Variety Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    An entertaining mishmash that uneasily juggles jargony sci-fi theories with elements of military conspiracy, action-adventure, disaster movie and surreal psychological suspense.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    The miniseries is an ordinary but not awful piece of science fiction, one you won't hate watching and yet one you shouldn't hate missing.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Ray Richmond

    Creepily watchable almost in spite of itself through at least the first two nights, the miniseries embodies a veritable symphony of implausibility.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Melanie McFarland

    Around 11 p.m. on Wednesday, you'll be asking yourself what the hell happened.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    That the story... snakes around a lot, tossing supernatural red herrings in its wake, keeps it oddly compelling, even as it grows increasingly preposterous, not only as regards the supernatural but as to how people really act.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    The questions posed by "The Triangle" are fascinating. But the answers are - sometimes literally - a waste of time.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    More or less a soggy misfire.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    An abysmally dumb plot peopled with some of the most irritating characters in the history of television.
