against the backdrop of more than 50 years of American history,
this is the story of three generations of three families -
the Keys, Crawfords and Clarkes. Starting in the skies over
France in 1945 and progressing through the decades to modern
day accounts of alien abductions, the series is an awe-inspiring
look at the lives of three ordinary families who experience
the extraordinary. When the secrets of the decades begin to
unravel, all three families must come together to unlock the
shocking mysteries that have plagued them for generations...
Spielberg acts as executive producer on this mini-series about
alien abduction as seen through the eyes of three American
families, from Roswell to the present day. What did happen
in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947? And why did the government
cover it up? Taken adds a new slant on a much filmed
it works well. While slow in places, this series builds to
an exciting climax. The opening seconds - a dogfight during
WWII - are breathtaking. This is one opening where you should
be watching on the largest TV screen possible - with the sound
series then progresses rapidly through the decades (with one/two
episodes dedicated to each decade) dropping in subtle time
specific items. UFO fanatics will no doubt be impressed with
the mentions of Betty and Barney Hill - who claimed to have
been abducted by aliens - as well as mentions of the Apollo
13 mission and the Cuban missile crisis. But
the show's better moments come in the final segments set in
modern day America.
box set contains 10 episodes (each 90mins in length) and is
certainly worth the asking price. Anyone
who likes gripping dramas will fall in love with this beautifully
