Living among the citizens of the infamous New Mexico city of Roswell are some 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 and Michael Guerin are teenage humans with extraordinary gifts - gifts that are "not-of-this-earth". They are human/alien hybrids, sent here to complete their destiny. Their counterparts have already perished in a war of attrition, thus one day, they 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.

The mountain where alien-children came from (and frequently go back to) is the same as the mountain Captain Kirk climbs in an episode of Star Trek (1966); it was also used in Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (1991), as the mountain to which Bill & Ted are brought to be killed by the evil robots and in _Fastlane (2002)_ where Van and Deq go to meet with an arms dealer (and their car is shot with a rocket launcher).

It is all about trust Max. God, do you really think that I would marry someone that I didn't even know? Someone who might be secretly working for the FBI or even
an alien. Don't you think that I have walked through is dreams a few times? And that maybe I checked on his alien status A LONG TIME AGO. God, Max. The irony here is that I trusted you. I trusted you to stand up at my wedding with my whole family there. I trusted you to be there for me. And you weren't.

Starting with the third season opening credits, while most of the actors' names appear normally, those of the three playing the aliens (Jason Behr, Katherine Heigl and Brendan Fehr) appear first in alien script, then morph into English, representing their rebirth from a previous alien life on Earth.

The first episode was great, and so was each after that. There was always something exciting going on in Roswell. It really sucks that the show is ending this season, but it packed a lot of things in its short years. I love the way the show melds the alien aspect and human emotion. The show will probably drift off into television history, not leaving too much of an impact on subsequent shows. It is the only show of its kind and will be missed immensely (at least by me).
