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.

In the episode "Maintenance," Jesse looks at a newspaper that has a headline "Ambassador to El Salvador disagrees with Pentagon". However, the story carries a byline of "New Delhi" and talks about a meeting between the prime ministers of India and Pakistan. It also mentions "Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee", even though the scene takes place in 1980 and Vajpayee would not become PM of India until 20 years later. See more »
I watched this when it first came out.. Just watched the whole thing again.. I was surprised at how well, it stood up to the passage of time.. I don't know how much Spielberg actually had a hand in this, but it does carry much of his expert film making. Some of it, especially the early episodes, remind us original 'baby boomers' of the 'wonder ness' of those years.
The fact it cover cult-decades, and several generations, it is extremely well put together. There is not a lot of special effects. But just enough at the right moments.
It's more a human nature series.
While we have gotten used to super fancy CGI effects, and razor fast, radical edits. I appreciated the pace of this very much.. Yes, some episodes are better than others. I didn't pay attention to who directed which episodes, but I did notice some difference. I think for the scope it covered, it is a well executes series.
