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.

At the end of "Maintenance", the last day shown is November 8th, 1980. When that date first appears on the screen, it is daylight. Then we see Eric waiting for Becky to get out of her house (in order to live with her to Maine), it is then night time. When she doesn't go out he decides to hit the road back to his military base and finish packing up. When he enters the base, it is daylight again. However, when he finally takes off to Maine, while he is on the road, it is night time again and the date shown is still November 8th, 1980. It should be November 9th (or later) since at least one day and a half separates the scene when that date first appeared and the last scene it appears in. See more »

John, Alien Visitor:
I'll try to put this in terms that you commonly use. I'm a scientist. We were all scientists. We came here to learn about your world. Our idea was to find out everything: your history, your biology, everything. We came here to learn. We're not that different from you, genetically, biologically. But what you call evolution has changed us. We see things in you that we no longer recognize in ourselves.
Dr. Chet Wakeman:
What do we know? They're this energy that can ...

I first saw taken when it aired on the scifi-channel back in 2002. I was on holiday in NY at the time. From the first episode I was hooked. I could only watch 5 of the 10 episodes at the time, because my holiday was over. I was so depressed when I got home. Then, last year it aired on the BBC and I watched the series for the second time. I recently bought the DVD.Taken tells the story of 4 generations of 3 family's that all have something to do with alien-abductions.But is is not just about that, it also lets you in to their lives and lets you look at how they cope with things.I think the script is just brilliant an the actors are very well-casted. Everyone, go and see the series, I'm sure you'll love it!
