Roswell Gets Funny

Roswell co-executive producer Ronald D. Moore told Cinescape Online that the next episode will focus comedically on the characters of Michael (Brendan Fehr) and Kyle (Nick Wechsler). The third season’s second episode, airing Oct. 16, will be titled “Michael, the Guys, and the Great Snapple Caper,” Moore told Cinescape’s Anna L. Kaplan.

“Michael looks around and realizes that he’s stuck here,” Moore said. “He’s the one that always assumed he was going to be leaving and never really bothered much with convention or trying to do anything with his life on Earth. Suddenly, he ain’t going home and decides, ‘I have to get my act together.’ He’s about to flunk out of high school. He’s got this apartment, and he can’t pay the bills. So he decides to take on a second job and start taking more responsibility in his life. He takes a job as a night watchman. The second episode is basically played for laughs. It’s Michael working as a night watchman at this place, bonding with the guys and starting to screw around with them and hanging out.”

The episode will also touch upon ex-sheriff Jim Valenti (William Sadler) and his son, Kyle. “After Valenti lost his job as sheriff, he hasn’t gotten a new job yet,” Moore said. “He’s been sitting on the couch sleeping and watching TV all day. Kyle has had to go out and get a job. You see that Kyle is now the parent, and Valenti is now the son. That’s also in the second episode. Kyle is getting sick of it, having trouble paying the bills and telling dad to get off his ass and do something with his life.”
