A fairly spectacular start - forgetting the lead in with the re-enactment of the Spanish ships from the 15th century succumbing to the whims of the triangle that is.
The whaler takes the greenpeace boat with it and there is only one survivor.
All in all I thought this first instalment was really exciting and thought provoking.
That is, except for the fact that it started out by having Catherine Bells character inform everyone that the Atlantic Ocean is the deepest ocean on earth....WRONG.
For everyones benefit (who didn't know it already), the Pacific Ocean is the deepest ocean on the planet. And there are at least a dozen scientific expeditions going on right now that continue to find even deeper parts.
Other than that piece of eroneous intel, I enjoyed it.
Looking forward to seeing part 2. It's definately worth an 8/10 at this stage.
