My favorite episode!
7 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

Of all the Roswell episodes I've seen (all of seasons one and two, I'm about to begin season three) this is my personal favorite. Michael figures out where the geodesic dome from his dreams is, in Marathon Texas, so he begins a trip to Marathon by stealing Maria's car... with Maria in it. Liz, Max, and Isabel all hop in the jeep to go after the two. Pretty soon, you guessed it, the Valenti's get involved, chasing Maria and Michael down 285 South, the interstate for which the episode is named. A complicated, plot advancing, and all-in-all very heartfelt episode with lots of tension and character development, I highly recommend 285 South, as well as the series Roswell as a whole.
