Review of Roswell

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.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

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).
