A modern revival of the classic science fiction horror anthology show The Outer Limits (1963). Episodes often have twist-endings and involve aliens. Sometimes, a story from one episode continues in a later episode.
A year after Liberation Day, courtesy of the red-dust bacteria, the humanoid, lizard-like aliens develop a resistance to the micro-organism and try to regain control of the Earth--only now some humans are knowingly working with them.
A marine biologist, an insurance salesman and a teen-aged boy find their lives fundamentally changed by the emergence of a new, and often dangerous, species of sea life, while government agents work to keep the affair under wraps.
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

Maj. Owen Crawford:
Can you imagine what would have happened to people if, in 1947, they thought that we were going to be invaded by aliens?
Gee, I don't know... growth of the military-industrial complex? Trials to see if you were an alien sympathizer?

"Sometimes, I wish Steven Spielberg was taken..." to paraphrase an opening quote to this wasteful piece of cliches that should have taken about 45 minutes to summarize instead of 10 LONG hours.
The effects are beyond cheesy, the X-Files references without the classy intellectuality, etc etc etc. The little aphorism-quotes reading like a 6th-grade report - and read with the same conviction as well.
I mean, what happened here? Is Spielberg in another planet and cannot be reached for comment? How can anyone assume that a film-maker of his gifts could be so out of tune with reality and what is currently acceptable as entertainment?
The writing of the series is appalling - and that's during the GOOD parts - and the treatment of this subject is juvenile.
Artificial, out of touch, tasteless, intellectually unstimulating, patronizing and just plainly awful.
