First of all, huge thanks to Roswell 10/2/00 for coming up with this great idea!
Twelve years ago, our favorite aliens and their human friends last appeared on our television screens. On February 17th, 2014 aliens from another race will be back on TV. A new sci-fi show called “Star-Crossed” is going to premiere on The CW.
So, some other aliens are back on TV this year… 2014 also marks the 15th Anniversary of Roswell (on October 6th) and don’t forget that Future Max used the granilith’s power to travel back in time in 2014, as well.
Let’s show that almost “15 years later we still believe in Roswell.” and this brand new Twitter Campaign is a great way to kick off the celebration!
Roswell fans from all over the world are asked to tweet about “Roswell” on February 17th, 2014:
Tell us why Roswell is so special to you and why you remember Roswell. Be creative and post fan art or tweet your favorite quotes from the show. Please join us, spread the word and tweet about Roswell ensuring that you include #RememberRoswell and #StarCrossed somewhere in your posts to Twitter.
If we can make Roswell a trending topic it will help draw attention to the show and maybe “Star-Crossed” fans, who need something alien-themed to watch between new episodes will discover “Roswell”. After all, Roswell’s Max and Liz are star-crossed lovers, too and the show will “always be in our hearts!”
Long before “Twilight” and “Vampire Diaries”, an alien boy saved a girl from earth. On the premiere date of “Roswell”, Mike Duffy released the article “WB’s ‘Roswell’ is a Fine Romance”:
[…] Do not hide from “Roswell.” That would be a mistake. Especially if you’re a sucker for a fine romance.[…] A cosmic bond is quickly forged when Max Evans (Jason Behr, “Dawson’s Creek”) uses his otherworldly powers to save the life of Liz Parker (Shiri Appleby) after she’s accidentally shot in the terrific opening scenes.
So begins a star-crossed odyssey between our sensitive Romeo from another planet and his Earthling Juliet.

Back in January of 2000 Entertainment Teen magazine did an article about “Roswell”:
The WB has given us one more reason to look forward to Wednesday nights. Roswell airs at 9 p.m. following Dawson’s Creek and it’s packed with hot hunks, daring chicks and gripping story lines. If you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of months, here’s the lowdown on the hottest new show that is truly out of this world. […]
Which leads us to one of the best reasons to tune in – the blossoming romance between Liz and Max as a modern day Romeo and Juliet. These star-crossed lovers have one colossal problem – they are different species. […]
The new show “Star-Crossed” is set in the near future on Earth.
