Hello [11 Apr 2009|09:39am]

Hey folks,

Just dropping in to say hi and it's good to see that there is a Taken community! All the fans are disappearing these days :-S

I have the DVDs so hopefully I'll be able to post some art for everyone at some point.

Hello! This is my Taken site: http://gportal.hu/portal/taken-spielberg/
Have You Been Taken?

[05 Mar 2006|07:09pm]

This will probably be a fruitless endeavour, but I'm trying anyway!

I do own the Taken DVDs, but I'm trying to get some friends into the series and don't have a DVD burner or anything. I've tried to rip the DVDs onto my computer, but I think my PC's too slow. In any case, does anyone either a) know of a place I can download the series or b) have it available to upload? I would do anything to have it!

Thanks in advance!

Hey, just wanted to let you guys know about Strangewire.com, a blog for all things paranormal, supernatural, and the like from legitimate news sources. Unlike the type of sites and columns that deal in "wacky news"-style articles about goofy work mishaps and amusing medical malpractice, Strangewire attempts to deal with phenomena that are part of a bigger question, from strange lights in the sky in the south-west US, to a man with claims of a haunting in Australia, from zombies and voodoo practice in Haiti to global government conspiracies. Fox Mulder's favorite blog, in other words. Recent articles include headlines such as "FLESH CHUNKS IN IOWA WATER LINES" and "NEW JAPANESE GHOST DETECTOR FOR SALE."

HI, this community hasn't been updated in a while, but some members may still visit it.
TAKEN has just come onto DVD here in Australia, the whole set, and it's coming onto TV soon too :)
I hired out the whole series from the video store and I found it amazing, I love it to pieces and think that the lack of fans are due to it not being publicised enough, don't you agree with me? I'm not a huge sci-fi fan or anything, but TAKEN was just amazing! I thought the storyline, characters and everything else that went with it were astounding! ♥
Anywho, I've made a whole bunch of TAKEN icons at my journal, so go there if you want a bit of TAKEN goodness :)

Have You Been Taken?

A "Taken" community! :) [31 May 2003|11:52am]

...I just discovered this community a couple of days ago and I'm so glad that there's a place for fans of this great mini series to talk. I'm looking forward to getting the DVD collection when it goes on sale in October. :)

I may be a bit biased because I run a web site for her, but my favorite performer in the show is Julie Ann Emery who played Amelia Keys. If anyone is interested, I created a small web site for her here: Julie's site.

Thanks and I'm very happy to have found others who are so enthusiastic about "Taken" too. :)

This interesting article from VideoBusiness.com has new details on the DVD:

MAY 19 | Steven Spielberg Presents Taken, the highest-rated series in the history of the Sci Fi Channel, is coming to DVD on Oct. 21 as a six-disc set from DreamWorks Home Entertainment.

The 10-episode series is on five discs, with a sixth disc filled with bonus materials such as a cast featurette, special effects feature, discussion with directors of each of the 10 episodes, a "Time Warp" feature on changes in different eras of the story line and a behind-the-scenes feature.

It's the first TV series from DreamWorks to reach DVD. The studio will target holiday shoppers along with the rental market for the DVD, which has an $89.95 MAP, and also will run a direct response campaign with the series' rebroadcast on Sci Fi. There is no VHS version.

The series, co-produced by Sci Fi and DreamWorks Television, tells the story of three families who experience alien abductions over three decades and must come together to unlock the mystery. The series starred Catherine Dent, Joel Gretsch, Eric Close, Steve Burton, among others.

The UK fans are soooo lucky. They're getting Taken on DVD at the beginning of May. An official DVD release.

I want Taken on DVD. There's rumors that the US DVD won't be released until closer to the end of the year. :(

Taken [24 Mar 2003|01:53am]

[ mood | tired ]

I thought I would past this here from my own journal for anyone who maybe
interested :-)

I am not really a great SciFi movie fan unless it is something realistic, Star Wars, Star Trek and the like just don`t really interest me but certain movie`s do and I guess one of the first SciFi movie`s I loved was the 1977 movie Close Encounters Of The Third Kind

I went to the cinema back then to see this movie and I thought it was a fantastic movie, but so many movie`s have come and gone over the years since that one by Steven Spielberg, and his latest mini series Taken which has been showing here on British TV these last few months has really taken me aback,
I have been downloading the series on Kazaa the last few weeks now as I have missed many from the beginning and would love to watch the whole series from start to finish, I have one last part downloading and then I will have the complete series which I will be making a CD`r DvD copy, I have been really engrossed in this series since I started to watch it, it`s been one of the best I have watched in quite a few years, and there are many interesting site`s I have found about it too, just clicking on link`s from the main site "Taken" there are several interesting link`s about how the series came about etc.

Last night was the last and final episode of the series as my TV guide described it "Sci-fi drama series from Steven Spielberg. In the final episode, Allie learns her true destiny and together the family must make the most difficult decision of their lives" it was compelling, even brought a tear to my eye, and I have to say that Allie aka Dakota Fanning it sure to be one of the great stars of future films, her acting career started when she was only 5 years old and at the ripe old age of now 9 she is already at the top in my view, I think she is a great little actress and there are several site`s I have come across with interesting fact`s and titbits about her.
She found her fame I guess in the movie "I Am Sam" with Sean Penn,

Meet Sean Penn's New "Daughter"! Thursday, December 20, 2001

When Dakota Fanning learned she'd be playing Sean Penn's daughter in I Am Sam — opening Dec. 28 — she reacted like any seven-year-old would. "We had such a small apartment that there wasn't anywhere to run around," she recalls, "so I jumped up and down on the bed! And then I called my grandmother."

If Fanning keeps snapping up plum parts — she just wrapped Kevin Bacon's 24 Hours and is now shooting Sweet Home Alabama with Reese Witherspoon — the tyke will need a good long-distance plan! Of course, her thespian ambitions are no surprise to Granny. "I've been a ballerina since I was two," she smiles, "but I've always wanted to be an actress." Sometimes, though, she's taken her make-believe games to dramatic extremes! "I would go through 'childbirth' all the time," she says. "I'd put a pillow up my shirt and pretend that I'm pregnant."

Yikes! Fortunately for her, Mommy opted to take little Dakota to see a talent agent rather than a child psychiatrist. That wise judgment call paid off: The Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) has just nominated Fanning — along with A.I.'s Haley Joel Osment and Harry Potter's Daniel Radcliffe — for best child performer.

She's taking her early success in stride, however, and is far more impressed by her newfound Penn pal. "[Sean] is very, very nice to me," she enthuses. "He took me to the Santa Monica Pier and lunch at The Ivy." While dining at the posh L.A. eatery, by the by, Fanning wasn't too shy to hit Penn up for a little career advice. "I wanted to be a cheerleader and a Brownie," she says of her past ambitions, "but when I grow up, I'd probably like to be a director." — Adrianne Stone with Daniel R. Coleridge.

There is also another interview Here on ETonline.com and another here at Los Angeles Arts and Entertainment Magazine also this site is dedicated to her and has many movie clips and interviews Dakota-Fanning.Org

I was so captivated by this series and do hope they go on to make a follow on series to this one, I would be glued to the screen for sure if they do, and if anyone else has watched the series and would like to comment then please do feel free to E-mail I am always glad to find out how other people enjoyed the series and learn of any new links to interesting fact`s about it.
Well guess I have ranted on long enough for this session so think its time for me to get myself a refill of tea and read up on some of the latest news and events online, hope everyone is having a great weekend :-)
