From New York Daily News:

Roswell: The pilot of this WB series established it as a little bit “X-Files” a little bit “Dawson’s Creek” and a little bit “The Fugitive”. By the end of the season, there were also elements of “The Prisoner” ” West Side Story” and even “Casablanca”- not a bad mix of inspirations. If you’ve never watched an episode, this is the perfect time you pick up the habit.
Also in yesterdays edition: (Roswell mention only…)
Other excellent season finales included “Once and Again”….”NYPD Blue”……”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”…..and “Roswell” with a cliffhanger that also changed the status quo for next year. (just the Roswell excerpt)
