Subject: 'Taken'... Or Should It Be Returned?

OK, I saw it... the preview offered by the Sci-Fi channel in
Washington, DC November 20.

They showed a piece of the first installment and the whole
second installment.

A mixed bag. Space/UFO soap opera combined with some intelligent
portrayal of the impact of abduction phenomena. However, I would
say overblown.

Written by a person who has a marginal knowledge of ufology and
who is also a good writer (Spielberg had input, but the script
was written by one man, Leslie Bohem.) So it is complex (the
history of several families with kids) and intriguing and
perhaps even exciting. But I found myself saying... "reality
check" over and over. Shades Close Encounters, ET and even
Independence Day with the spectrum of ufology, a la Contact,
thrown in for 'good' measure.

Have fun!
