Storyline

20th century history as we know it is a lie. Aliens have been among us since the 1940s, but a government cover-up has prevented the public from knowing this. As the series progresses, we follow John Loengard and Kim Sayers as they attempt to thwart numerous plans of the alien Hive, most of which are tied to historical events and figures. In addition, the pair must stay one step ahead of a covert government agency, Majestic-12, tasked with fighting the aliens while maintaining the conspiracy of silence.

Good brief summary
3 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

Dark skies i felt was an excellent sci-fi type series. It 'sewed' together so many elements of our past history during the late 50's and 60's with the UFO landing/crash of Roswell, New Mexico. A government agency was trying to cover up facts of a meeting between government officials and aliens. an ex-agent with that agency was trying to find more facts to expose everything about this conspiracy. There were only a handful of believers and one included Bobby Kennedy, (brother of the president) in which JFK's assassination was part of this UFO conspiracy...well...enough said. the series was off to an excellent start but must not have had enough interest by viewers since they cancelled it abruptly and they had to conclude the series in just one show and it was very poorly done. this series i think will be a classic and should be brought back and finished correctly. All in all it is an excellent series and is coming back in re-runs on the sci-fi channel!
