My mother always told to me a lot about the sky. She likes to watch the clouds in the day and the starts at night… especially the stars. We would play a game sometimes, a game called “What’s Beyond the Sky”. We would imagine darkness or a blinding light or something else that we didn’t know how to name. But, of course, that was just a game. There’s nothing beyond the sky. The sky just is, and it goes on and on, and we
play all our games beneath it.”
Taken, also known as Steven Spielberg Presents Taken, is a science fiction miniseries which first aired on the Sci-Fi Channel in 2002 and won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Miniseries. Filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, it was written by Leslie Bohem, and directed by Breck Eisner, Felix Enriquez Alcala, John Fawcett, Tobe Hooper, Jeremy Paul Kagan, Michael Katleman, Sergio Mimica-Gezzan, Bryan Spicer, Jeff Woolnough and Thomas J. Wright. The executive producers were Leslie Bohem and Steven Spielberg. The show was well received by critics.
The show takes place from 1944 to 2002 and follows the lives of three families; the Crawfords who seek to cover-up the Roswell crash and the existence of Aliens, the Keys who are subject to frequent experimentations by the Aliens, and the Clarkes who sheltered one of the surviving Aliens from the crash. As a result of the decades-long storyline, not a single actor or character appears in every episode of the series. Reception was positive, and the series won an Emmy Award.
