Taken

(11 votes)

Taken tv seriesTaken 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.

Trivia

A Canada Post mail box is seen outside the car dealership.

In the Episode "The Acid Test", some children are shown playing with a type of football (soccer ball) not available until the mid-'90s.

In "High Hopes", the third episode, Owen Crawford examines the photo of an unidentified married couple abducted by aliens. The photo is of real-life couple Betty and Barney Hill, who became famous in the early 1970's when hypnotherapy sessions allegedly revealed that they had been abducted by aliens.

The character 'Allie Keys' was ranked #16 in TV Guide's list of the "25 Greatest Sci-Fi Legends" (1 August 2004 issue).

This is currently the most expensive film ever shot in Richmond, British Columbia, and pumped more money into the Vancouver suburb's economy than any other movie project.

The abduction stories and sightings featured in the mini-series are based upon accounts made from people over the many years of UFO believers.

The WW2 bombing sequence in episode one was created using NewTek's "Lightwave 3D". The image of Germany was actually a spy photo taken from WW2.

New Amsterdam
John Amsterdam, a brilliant NYPD homicide detective is immortal. He is 400 years old, but his body structure is that of a 35-year-old. Amsterdam was a Dutch soldier in the year 1642 when he stepped in front of a sword to save the life of a Native American girl during a massacre of her tribe. The girl in turn rescued Amsterdam by weaving an ancient spell that conferred immortality upon him. It was also prophesied that he would not age until he finds his one true love, and only then will he become whole and ready for mortality.
