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

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).


PS- A new trailer is being introduced this coming weekend at the
movie theaters that will heavily promote TAKEN.
