Storyline

Taken spans five decades and four generations, centering on three families: the Keys, Crawfords, and Clarkes. World War II veteran Russell Keys is plagued by nightmares of his abduction by aliens during the war; the Roswell incident transforms Owen Crawford from ambitious Air Force captain to evil shadow government conspirator; the unhappily married Sally Clarke is impregnated by an alien visitor. As the decades go by, the heirs of each are affected by the machinations of the aliens, culminating with the birth of Allie Keys, who is the final product of the aliens' experimentation and holds the key to their future. Written by Ronos

Out of this world!!!
11 December 2002 | by (http://www.cinema-crazed.com) – See all my reviews

This is possibly the best mini-series of all time, with excellent acting, killer plotlines, and storylines that get you hooked immediately. I was unsure about this at the beginning, but I havent missed one yet! This isn't about aliens, but more about people, and their natures. Trust me on this one, when it comes on DVD, im going to be first on line.
