Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Cross the alien-infiltration and paranormal-phenomena story lines of The X-Files with the teen angst of Dawson's Creek, and you've got the essence of this engaging TV series, a novel twist on sci-fi programming that attracted a faithful fan following. The 23 episodes of Season 1 take place in the sleepy New Mexico town where a UFO supposedly crash-landed in 1947. In the pilot episode, we meet best friends Liz Parker (Shiri Appleby) and Maria De Luca (Majandra Delfino), who juggle their high school studies with work in the Crashdown Café. Critically wounded in a shooting, Liz is miraculously healed by Max Evans (Jason Behr), a fellow student and secret admirer. He, his sister Isabel (Katherine Heigl), and friend Michael Guerin (Brendan Fehr) are somehow different from the town's other teens, and the reason is soon revealed: they are the progeny of the aliens who crash-landed in Roswell, born after decades spent in hidden incubation pods ejected from the doomed craft. As the series unfolds, the alien teens come to grips with their unearthly powers while trying to fit in with their human neighbors. Protecting their secret isn't easy, especially with stubborn Sheriff Valenti (William Sadler) keeping an eye open for anything suspicious; his father had firsthand knowledge of the 1947 incident and was widely ridiculed by fellow townspeople for his belief in alien visitors. Roswell takes many twists and turns in its debut season, and each episode reflects unusual care in the writing, directing, and acting. The ensemble cast is especially good, with Appleby, Behr, and Heigl the undisputed standouts. Roswell is not your typical science fiction show -- and that's exactly why it is so beloved by a coterie of loyal fans who'd be happy to welcome you into their ranks.

Roswell - Season 1 4.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 37 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Excellent On an alien planet a civil war raged. It's King, his Queen, his Sister, and his Second in command were killed. The planet conquered. These aliens had already studies humans. Human bodies and brains. They'd learned that the human brain is capable of pretty much any mental ability ever theorized - telepathic, telekinetic, self-healing, etc. Human just don't know how to use those abilities. These aliens had a power of there own, they could manipulate matter at the molecular lever. They combined DNA from the Royal Four, and four humans, The Royal Four were reborn, as hybrids of human and alien. The hybrids were designed to be more powerful than either species. The plan was to raise them to be ready to return and reclaim there throwns and planet. The Roswell crash ruined that plan. For decades the Hybrids grew in incubation pods, before emerging. Instinctively knowing they weren't human, instinctively hiding in plain sight. Driven by survival, desire to find their origins, feelings for each other and feelings humans This series is the tales of their adventures.

I found Roswell to be very interesting. It would be my time away from all the days stresses. I liked it so much that I tried not to miss a show. I would unplug my phone and wouldn't answer my door. LOL I really wish they hadn't cancelled it. But those are the breaks. At least we (FANS) get a chance to purchase the Seasons.
Guest More than 1 year ago
I LOVE Roswell! The chemistry between Jason Behr(Max) and Shiri Appleby(Liz) was amazing. I can't wait to watch it all on DVD over, and over, and over, and over, until the DVD's wont play cause they've been used too much. Haha.

Ever since this show aired on the WB I have been hooked. It disappointed me that UPN shut it off in 2002, but now I can own the best season and watch over and over again.

I barly watch Tv as it is and when i saw ROSWELL i just fell in love!!! Every time something Dramatic happened i cried. And then they took it off the air and i was crushed i cried even more. Its definatly by far a more than five star Show!!!

Roswell may be cancled now, but it will never be forgotten by the many fans. It lives on in reruns, fan fiction, and now on the DVD! I'm so thrilled! Season 1, to me, was the best season. It provided a solid, thought-out plot and some great character development, especially with Michael. Michael and Maria are the greatest on this show. I'm not even joking when I say that. They provide humor and wit and passion and romance in every episode, it seems. The best episodes of this season are: 285 South (So funny!) River Dog (Intriguing!) Heatwave (HOT!) The Toy House (Just plain nice!) Independence Day (Tearjerker!) Sexual Healing (Passionate!) Crazy (AWESOME!) Destiny (Suspenseful!) Buy it! That's really all I can say!

I have been waiting for Roswell to come out on DVD for so long. I have been going to several places online to see if someone somewhere had it so I could purcahse it. I didn't see it from the begining, but when I did start watching it I was addicted. I watched just about every episode. When I wasn't home to watch it I would have my brother tape it for me. It's just that good a show!!!

When Roswell first came out on tv. I could care less, but after seeing the commericals I gave Roswell a chance...and WOW...I really enjoyed watching it. I couldnt wait for the next ep to come out. Now this is on DVD, I am soo getting this....My only question is WHEN is the following 2 seasons coming out?
Guest More than 1 year ago
I love Roswell and I can't believe that it is fianlly out on DVD. I am so excited to go out and but it.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Finally! I've waited so long for this to come out, it's a great show full of twists and unexpected events. I can't believe it took so long to come out for sale! It's an alien equivalent of Dawson's Creek, only much better, and not as melodramatic.
Guest More than 1 year ago
One of the most underated shows that was never given enough promotion.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Great show!!!! Hope they come out with the rest of the seasons. I wonder why it took so long to come out with these??
Guest More than 1 year ago
I am SO pleased Roswell is finally coming to DVD! The loyal fans have been waiting for so long, and our prized VHS tapes have all been worn to the bone. I will be first in line to buy this. Season 1 is the BEST! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!!!
Guest More than 1 year ago
I think Roswell was the best show ever. They should have tried to get funds to continue the series. Also every moment of free time I had during the summer I watched it. You can get addicted. My friend said I was crazy because every time she came over I was watching it. Then she watched one episode and became addicted too. :) P.S. Jason Behr is HOT but so is Brendan Fehr.

I started watching Roswell Re-runs sometime this past summer. I got caught in the last part of the first season and followed it through until it started over again. I nearly cried when I had to start my classes for the semester..but I managed to still have time to see Roswell. I don't usually follow television shows, but Roswell really got my attention. I love each and every one of the characters and felt connected with them when something happened. I am soo happy seasons one and two are on dvd, now I can see my favorite episodes over and over...
Guest More than 1 year ago
I agree totally!! This show was never given the acknowledgement nor promotion it truly deserved.

I missed the original series when it first came on air. Thsi is a true cult classic. The story is addicting to watch. I started with the first box set and had to own all three seasons. If you are a Roswell fan or a sci-fi fanatic, this is a must see.
Guest More than 1 year ago
I LOVED Roswell. I was SO sad when they cancelled it, even though the series finale was one of the best I have ever seen. I was so excited when I heard season one is coming out, I hope they don't make us wait to long for seasons 2 and 3!
Guest More than 1 year ago
I'm a grandmother and have always been a sci-fi fan, especially regarding anything Roswell. I just ordered the first season on DVD and can't wait for the second and third to become available.

I watched Roswell from the first episode 'til the end, and let me tell you I loved it. It is so awesome and I am extremely excited. If you haven't gotten a chance to get to know Max, Liz, Michael, Isabelle, Maria, Kyle and even Alex, you have definitely missed out.
