Swans Crossing was a short-lived half-hour serial following the lives, loves, and intrigues of twelve wealthy teenagers who stir up scandal and excitement in their small town. Among them are: Sydney Rutledge, the mayor's scheming daughter; Garrett Booth, a manipulative charmer and Sydney's blackmailing ex-boyfriend; Mila Rosnovsky, a former television star; and Neil Atwater, a young scientist who is trying to create the world's first self-propetuated rocket fuel.

This was by far one of the best-written and best acted shows for teenagers in memory. Sarah Michelle Gellar, Brittany Daniel, and Mira Sorvino all went on to have fabulous careers, and they all did a fine job on this show. SMG blew me away in her scenes where her character Sydney nearly drowned and was in shock. "Nobody helps me! Never!" What a powerful performance (I still believe it was the best scene I have ever seen her do)! It only lasted 13 weeks, not nearly given enough time to build a solid audience plus the timeslots were a little ridiculous. Most of all, the show was somewhat a fantasy, but it was real enough because the characters were going through what normal teenagers go through. The storylines were clever and there was always a surprise on Friday's episode (not many soaps can say that). Too bad the devoted fans will never get to find out how these stories played out. Had this show been given a chance, it might have lasted for years.
