Did You Know?


Owen Crawford examines the photo of a married couple named Betty Hill and Barney Hill who claim to have been abducted by aliens. In reality, the Hills became famous in the mid 1960s with the publication of John G. Fuller's book "The Interrupted Journey" which told the story of their hypnotic regression by Dr. Benjamin Simon and their recollection of the events following their alleged abduction. See more »


Crawford refers to Howard Bowen as a captain. However, he wears the insignia of a major. See more »


Allie Keys: [narrating] The world is made up of the big things that happen and the small ones. And the part that's so unfair is that we call them "big" and "small" because when something happens to you, when you lose something or someone that you really care about, that's all there is. The world may be blowing up around you but you don't care about that. You don't care about that at all.

Two opposite ways for Jacob and Jesse!!!
3 November 2019 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

Firstly I'am very surprised this episode wasn't any review yet, in just three of them I'd realized that Taken was so great, this time Jesse was found by the hunters Major Bowen and Major Erickson, pursued by car Jacob decides using your power mind to stop them, in opposite way Jesse finds his father Captain Keys asking if they could help the US's Army against the menace of the Aliens, they caught in the hands of the evil Colonel Crawford, they are arrest and split after they found an strange point in their head, actually an alien implant, a secret surgery was arranged, however unexpected things is about to come, another fantastic episode!!!
