Has anyone seen the advertisements for that SciFi miniseries, The Triangle that's supposed to start on Monday (I think)??

The commercials are pretty vague, but I'm most excited about seeing this because of Bryan Singer's involvement. Oh, and Catherine Bell's pretty hot too. Anyone else plan on watching?

It looks somewhat interesting, but the ScFi channel's original movies are usually stinkbombs.
Making McMovies with Cheese is one of the things the SciFi channel /TNT does with aplomb. I haven't watched the ScFi channel since they cancelled Farscape -not for any vindictive reason, it's just they no gots the goods.
And Bryan Singer is only the executive producer.
Francis Ford Coppola was the executive producer for the SciFi show First Wave, and that show was still aerosol cheese. :rolleyes:

I'm not a huge Farscape fan, but I know that Rockne O'Bannon has some writing credits on the Triangle. He did the screenplay for Farscape as well, right?

As far as you disliking Sci-Fi's previous efforts...I liked Dune and Earthsea, so I'm willing to give these guys a clean slate.

Could be decent. With Surface on haitus on Monday, I'll check it out and see if its worth watching the rest of it.

Sci fi does decent mini series, it makes lousy movies.

Dune and Earthsea are Hallmark productions, so I'll make an exception for those.
Even though I didn't like Earthsea(the first chapter anyway,and I passed on the rest),it was still beautifully done. And I liked both the Dune presentations. ;)

AND Farscape is Rockne O's baby. :D
