Beginning with the most notorious alien cover-up in US history, the 1947 "crash" at Roswell, New Mexico, Taken introduces the "Greys" and the families they routinely abduct, probe and, in a couple of cases, impregnate over the course of the ten hour-and-a-half-long episodes. The three families are: the Keys, from which first Russell, then his son Jessie, then grandson Danny, are all abducted; the Clarkes, who are descended from a liaison between lonely put-upon housewife Sally Clarke and one of the Roswell crash survivors; and the Crawfords, the ruthless G-men who are committed to uncovering the purpose behind the alien visitations at any cost.
But even though the Greys' actions are at best ambiguous and at worst hostile, Taken is basically a soap opera, lacking the sinister undercurrent of either Dark Skies or The X-Files despite its science-fiction trappings. Nevertheless, this is an engaging series which has decent performances--most notably Joel Gretsch as psychotic Owen Crawford--special effects and an engaging enough storyline to make it entertaining, if somewhat disposable, TV. --Kristen Bowditch
TAKEN is a made-for-television miniseries exploring the mysteries of alien abduction, produced by the man who first introduced the world to CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND--Steven Spielberg. This epic saga spans five decades and four generations, focusing on three families--the Keys, Crawfords, and Clarkes--whose lives have been bound to the history of alien encounters since the 1950s. The Keys family is plagued by nightmares of WWII veteran Russell Keys' abduction during the war. The Crawfords are haunted by Owen's involvement in the government conspiracy to cover up the Roswell incident. And the Clarkes' fates are altered when housewife Sally falls in love with and becomes impregnated by an alien visitor. This particular encounter culminates in the birth of a special child who is the final product of the aliens' experimentation and whose unusual powers may hold the key to the future to both species. TAKEN weaves the threads of its stories together in an evocative tale that not only examines the possibility of extraterrestrial life, but also explores what it means to be human.
