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
The "Twilight" books and subsequent movies, particularly the first entry, share quite a few plot similarities to "Roswell." So much so, that some have dubbed "Twilight" a "Roswell" rip-off. See more »
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 »
Happy birthday, Isabel. I'm 18 today, Mother. October 25th. At least that's the day we've always celebrated as my birthday. But you're the only one who really knows the real day. I guess that's why I came to the place, the only place I've ever seen you. I hold on to that day, but you disappeared, and the picture of you is already fading, and it's all I had. I was so happy because you were beautiful and warm, and I even thought I looked like you. But it wasn't you. Not really. God, I don't know ...

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.

My sister got me hooked on "Roswell" at the beginning, but I kept watching because it was such a fantastic show! The episodes are wonderful, I love the music, and the storylines were incredible (even the often-dreaded Season 3, which I actually liked). I identified most with Max because he had been an outsider all his life, and had been in love with one woman but never had the courge to tell her (I felt like that a lot of the time). All the actors were wonderful, but I wish they hadn't made some of the decisions for Season 2 that they had. Well, I might as well list my favorite episodes, so here goes:
Season 1: Pilot, Leaving Normal, Blood Brother, The Toy House, Max to the Max.
Season 2: Skin & Bones, A Roswell Christmas Carol, Heart of Mine, The Departure
Season 3: Who Died & Made You King?, Graduation
