Storyline

It's now 1970 and Colonel Crawford is forced to retire after claiming to have found a potential landing strip for alien ships, which turn out to be human-made crop circles made by Tom Clarke specifically to discredit him. One of Crawford's sons, Sam, sees a newspaper report of an archaeological find in Alaska that bears the same hieroglyphs as is on the metal object he keeps locked away. He travels to Alaska to see what he can find out. Jesse Keys is now a young adult but keeps a low profile traveling from town to town. He's also a drug addict but while recovering in a VA hospital he falls in love with a nurse. Written by garykmcd

Grateful Deads Ripple
8 July 2009 | by moss824See all my reviews

This was an outstanding episode. Tones of X-files that made it very creepy.

Bryon Spicer did a great job directing this episode, along with the previous one.

THE BEST PART: Closing emotional/disturbing scene with the Grateful Dead's classic tune, RIPPLE :)

TAKEN would succeed as a television show that could go on for many seasons. I'm surprised Spielberg has not 'taken' (lol) advantage of this lucrative opportunity.

I was skeptical on watching TAKEN at the beginning....but once I did, I felt like an idiot for waiting as long as I did. JUST WATCH IT!
