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.Written by

The 2-part pilot episode, "The Awakening" (first shown on network TV, NBC - 21 September, 1996), has been made into a single, feature length movie and is now being shown on cable TV under the title "Dark Skies" (1996). See more »
First X-Files then Dark Skies, X-Files had a good thing for awhile but the show was too slow to spill its secrets. Dark skies on the other hand kept viewers on the edge of their seats. The secrets kept coming at a rapid pace without ruining the flow of the series. I think it failed because of the time slot 8:00 Saturday evening? (at least where I live) It also had to go up against X-Files witch at the time was in its hay day. When the order came down to terminate the show they didn't have the respect to end on a proper note, I would have preferred something worthwhile for the people like myself who tuned in every week (I never missed an episode) The concept for Dark Skies was well thought out with good character development and god actors/actresses. the seamless blending of news footage was a great touch.
