This series creates an intriguing and implausible world, and those who are willing to lean into the far-fetched storylines will find it entertaining. Triptych is loosely inspired by the story of real identical male triplets separated at birth; their experiences were the subject of the 2018 documentary Three Identical Strangers. But Triptych is a dramatic thriller that uses Rebecca's discovery that she has two identical siblings as the vehicle that sets the complicated narrative in motion. As details are revealed throughout the eight-episode series, often through the use of repeated flashbacks to give them added context, viewers also learn a lot about Rebecca's troubled past and those of her sisters, much of which is attributed to being strangely connected despite having no knowledge of each other's existence.
