Storyline

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. A close relationship then develops between Max and Liz. Central to the first season were the relationships between... Written by Ernest Kung <elk@usc.edu>

Trivia

There is an hour of unaired footage from "The Departure" episode floating around the internet. The episode was originally 2 hours long, but at the last minute the WB network would only give Roswell a regular hour-long slot, so they had to cut an hour of footage to make the episode fit into the time slot.

Goofs

Max and Isabel's Jeep is an automatic (they often drive away with both hands on the steering wheel), but the audio makes the Jeep sound like a standard stick. See more »

Quotes

Jesse: [Isabel is shot] Oh, my God. Have you called an ambulance?
Michael: No, no, no, no, no!
Jesse: Well, what's wrong with you?
Michael: Hey, no ambulance, no hospital.
Jesse: She'll die, you idiot!
[Jesse punches Michael in the face]
Jesse: What the hell is wrong with you?
Michael: Hey, you can't take her to the hospital, you can't!
Jesse: Why? Tell me why.
Michael: Because your wife isn't human. Okay? Understand that? Your wife is not human.

Crazy Credits

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.

It depicts raw human emotion better than anyother
18 February 2001 | by (Pittsburgh,Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I never make plans on monday nights. Roswell is one of the top shows on television today... or any other day. It's excellent if not a little unlikely. the character chemistry is perfect. The only thing i would change, is the amount of romance. I'd definitly get more serious into the sci-fi, and give kyle(Nick Wechsler) and alex (Colin Hanks) more screentime. They keep the show from getting to serious... with just the right amount of confusion, they give us comic relief. And their chacters are a fresh change from Max's "Whoa is me" self-pity
