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

    Familiar, formulaic fun, but one night too long. [9 Dec 2005, p.81]
  3. 63
    The narrative seems unduly baggy and stretched out, nothing so sharply defined as a triangle. More like a rhomboid. [12 Dec 2005, p.39]
  4. Somewhere within this bloated six-hour miniseries there's a lean, mean four-hour miniseries trying to escape.
  5. 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.
  6. 50
    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.
  7. 0
    An abysmally dumb plot peopled with some of the most irritating characters in the history of television.

    A very well made show, awe-inspired, some of the Science was flawed a tiny bit but overall very intelligent.

    It's truly amazing how many people who are employed by the press haven't got a clue what they are reviewing. This mini-series It's truly amazing how many people who are employed by the press haven't got a clue what they are reviewing. This mini-series embraces a variety of the theories out there about the Bermuda Triangle and ties them together quite well. I was surprised to see the Columbus tie-in since most people don't know that his sighting are in reality a part of historical record. I think the press should have to do their homework about the subject material before they are allowed to make a comment or a review. Expand

    Very surprised at all the bad reviews! I thought the acting was great, the plot interesting and through day two well interconnected. There Very surprised at all the bad reviews! I thought the acting was great, the plot interesting and through day two well interconnected. There are quite a few twists that keep you guessing. The effects are pretty good for TV. Overall one of the best sci-fi made for tv miniseries I have seen. Expand

    A decent miniseries but the comment about having to fill time is correct as it got a bit bogged in places. The entire subplot with Lou A decent miniseries but the comment about having to fill time is correct as it got a bit bogged in places. The entire subplot with Lou Diamond Phillips was a bit of a bore and could have been cut. Expand

    The punchline is not up to supporting the five hours it takes to get to it.
