Roswell in Salon’s 10 best shows

By • Dec 14th, 1999 • Category: Roswell

Thanks to tamara for pointing this out:

Roswell was featured along with Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel in Salon’s 10 best of 1999.

Roswell (WB) Writer Jason Katims (“My So-Called Life”) and director David Nutter (“The X-Files”) collaborated on this “my boyfriend is a space alien” teen drama (based on the “Roswell High” young-adult book series). The dialogue is seeded with meaningful inarticulate pauses, the cross-species lovers Liz and Max (Shiri Appleby and Jason Behr) are sweetly sympathetic, with expressive Dubba-Dubba/Keane-children eyes. And the plight of Max, his sister Isabel and buddy Michael — they descended from ETs who died in that alleged crash of a spaceship in Roswell, N.M., and they just want to figure out who they are — is a nice metaphor for the teenage search for identity (see “Freaks and Geeks,” above).
