Roswell Reviews & Ratings

Living among the citizens of the infamous New Mexico city of Roswell are four who are not there by choice. They are there to follow a destiny given to them by the members of their dying race, a race that they are someday destined to save. This is the background behind the WB series "Roswell". Max Evans, Isabel Evans, Michael Guerin and Tess Harding are teenage humans with extraordinary gifts - gifts that are "not-of-this-earth". They are human/alien hybrids, sent here as replacements for the royalty of an alien race. Their counterparts have already perished in a war of attrition, thus one day, the "royal four" will return to their home planet and save their race. Before a fateful day in 1999, the teens hid their gifts. The event that forever changed their lives was when Max healed Liz Parker (a classmate) after she was fatally shot in the stomach in a dispute between two customers at the restaurant where she waitresses. A close relationship then developed between Max and Liz. It was later mirrored by a relationship between Liz's best friend Maria Deluca and Michael. Central to the first season were the relationships between the hybrids and their human companions. That focus shifted during the drama's second season, making "Roswell" a science-fiction show built on the relationships between humans and aliens.

Because it's a pretty old show, I feel it had that classic feel to it which made me attached to it from the start. I finished all 3 seasons in 3 days. I'd say it's a pretty good show, unfortunately it ended in such a bad way with kind of a huge cliffhanger and no real closure, but its definitely worth the watch!

As I teenager I was obsessed with this show. If you like Aliens and don't mind brooding teenagers or maybe you still are one and understand what I'm trying to say then this show is for you. :)

Roswell is one of my favorite series. The lovestory of Max and Liz was compelling, the relationship between Maria and Michael funny. The whole Science-Fiction-Genre was totally new to me back then, but Roswell was not too heavy on that note. So I guess if you're not into Sci-Fi you could still enjoy this show.

A much loved cult favorite. I was hooked on the series from the first episode on. I enjoyed the romantic involvements, the comedy, the drama, the many heart wrenching scenes, and loved the final episode. When the last episode ended, I felt a great sadness that I would likely never again see these lovable aliens and their human friends. It was a show that left an indelible impression on my mind. The episodes are more like movies, they didn't just pound out a t.v. show every week. It sets teenage drama in the background of science fiction. It really has it all-love triangles, drama, character development, mystery, lots of funny bits, strong female characters, stories about friendship and sacrifice. Great music that you'll add to your playlist too. You will be sure to laugh, cry, and wish for that romance that is so strong it hurts. Great chemistry between the characters. The story line progresses greatly throughout the three seasons jam packed with action and chemistry. Actors, story line, cinematography everything was was very well done. This show was a way to symbolize common human fears in an imaginative parable. Issues that are woven into the story line include not knowing who you are, the experience of being a foster child, keeping secrets from parents and other authority figures, the danger of making close personal connections with others, and the isolation of being in or from one's own strange world. The storylines were always satisfing and creative. Each episode we learnt interesting facts about each character, and it was filled with suspence. The most interesting aspect of the show was the central story, the relationship between Liz and Max. It was real and touching and the viewer felt for them, we followed the heartache and the happiness. The chemistry between Jason Behr and Shiri Appleby was amazing.

Watched Roswell until about half way through season 2 and lost interest. It had great potential with the sci-fi storyline which is more unique than most sci-fi storylines but it was pretty much ruined with the bad storytelling of the relationships (the relationships themselves weren't bad, they just jumped from one thing to another all the time and it never made any sense).
