From: Steven Kaeser <steve.nul> Date: Wed, 20 Nov 2002 23:17:41 -0500 Archived: Thu, 21 Nov 2002 07:42:57 -0500 Subject: Washington DC Premiere Of 'TAKEN' The second episode of 'TAKEN' was shown at a "Premiere" of the mini-series in Washington DC this evening. Like any good Steven Spielberg production, you'll find kids and a good story line, but the relation between this fictional series and the abduction phenomenon (as we have come to know it) is very tenuous. The second episode was selected because they really wanted everyone to tune in to the first episode on December 2nd, and I suspect they didn't want to give too much of the story line away by showing a later segment. One interesting scene involved a young boy who followed a story-book character (a rather large squirrel) that to a tree house. According to the story-book, the squirrel only invited his friends into his home. Then once the boy was inside the tree house, it transformed into a "flying saucer" and flew off. I might suggest that you take notes during the show (just kidding) because the cast of characters is very large and they jump from one family to another rather quickly. I found myself getting them confused, since they jump forward in time and the children all look different (i.e. older) from one series of scenes to another. All things considered, I enjoyed it for its entertainment value. Yes, I'll be setting up my tapes to record it during it's two week run, but I have a feeling that it will take a while to digest. If you are an "experiencer", you should be aware that there are fairly graphic scenes (albeit short ones) inside the alien craft that might trigger bad memories. Enjoy it (if you can). Steve PS- A new trailer is being introduced this coming weekend at the movie theaters that will heavily promote TAKEN.
