Product Description

Dark Skies: The Declassified Complete Series

Amazon.ca

The X-Files told us, "The truth is out there." Dark Skies, the ambitious and audacious NBC series that lasted just one season, warned us we couldn't handle the truth. It created an incredible alternate universe in which 20th-century history as we know it is reinterpreted through the framework of a conspiracy to cover up an alien invasion. Francis Powers? He wasn't spying on Russia. He was involved in an aerial dogfight with a UFO. The assassination of President Kennedy? The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show? The disappearance of three civil rights workers in Mississippi? The Vietnam War? Pollution? Each is revealed to be a pivotal event in the secret war being raged on members of the alien Hive who first arrived at Roswell. "They're here, they're hostile, and powerful people don't want you to know," as the Emmy-winning opening credit sequence informs us. But John Loengard (Eric Close), an idealistic congressional aide, stumbles onto the conspiracy, and together with his girlfriend Kim Sayers (Megan Ward) becomes embroiled in the alien-quashing campaign being waged by Majestic, "the most secret organization you've never heard of." John is one of those "the public has a right to know" kind of guys, but Captain Bach (the late, great J.T. Walsh) will stop at nothing to ensure that doesn't happen. Dark Skies has a more accessible mythology than The X-Files, and it's a kick to see such 1960s icons as Jim Morrison, Timothy Leary, and John Lennon figure (unwittingly or not) in the action. The series also benefits from its meticulous period re-creation (it's Mad Men for the Close Encounters set) and above-average special effects. For a short-lived series, this six-disc set includes an impressive lineup of bonus features that will thrill the show's devoted following, including an excellent three-part series retrospective featuring the show's creators, Bryce Zabel and Brent V. Friedman, as well as Close and Ward; the international version of the impressive feature-length pilot directed by Tobe Hooper; original NBC promos; the electronic press kit used to promote the show; and a what-might-have-been proposal for a second season. --Donald Liebenson

If you enjoyed this series when it first aired, you won't be disappointed with this dvd set. They even include the somewhat different European release pilot.

Many have unfairly compared this show to its competitor THE X-FILES.
Honestly, X-FILES is a better show, more engaging, slicker production, and better writing.

But DARK SKIES has its own charm, particularly it alternate take on American history. It is a solid show, though it is clear there was network tinkering going on half way through its run in attempts to improve ratings.

The best part of this dvd package is the bonus disc with extensive interviews with the creators and cast.

Great sci-fi tv show along the lines of the X-Files but with historical facts. Excellent!

Malgré quelques incohérences scénaristiques et des effets spéciaux par moments carrément risibles, cette série vaut vraiment la peine d'être vue.
La seule chose qui manque, ce sont les sous-titres...
