OK, let's start. Apparently, viewers of this show are divided into lovers and haters, and that's pretty much all. I should probably starts saying that i like it a lot. I'm not saying it's perfect, because it wouldn't be realistic, wouldn't it? Very few shows are perfect from the beginning, and perfection does not exist anyway. I'm saying that Starcrossed has a potential who really, really shouldn't get wasted. I'm saying that it's different from other CW'shows and -as twenty-years-old TV Series Freak who has watched A LOT of things so far- i can tell it also is different from other networks'shows. Funny thing is, it should be a story about aliens; turns out it's not. It's a story about humans. It deals with racism and integration, people who have faith in a better world and people who have lost any hope, so that they decided to stand up for their rights in the worst possible ways. I know there's a lot of viewers who hate the Teenage Side of shows, but i have to say -and i'm not a romantic person- that we always need a little bit of that in ANY show, and i must admit this show does it pretty well: there's the epic couple who kind of run the show, but there's also the more physical not-yet-couple, always back-and-forth and so funny to watch, who -in my opinion- could keep stealing the scene forever. That's not all of it, though: we just learned all the Atrians (the aliens, basically) are potentially pansexual, which i think is a great way to introduce a very important current topic of discussion. So: war, death, pain,racism and intolerance, family, friendship and love (in all is different ways),hope and fear, secrets and mystery, politics ... and a brand new community with its very own traditions, dreams and an all new amazing language (which, by the way, was created by the same guy who brought to life Game of Thrones' Dothraki). Does Starcrossed deserve to be renewed? HELL YES IT DOES, because it will just keep getting better and better!
