Breaking Up Is Hard to Do
The Oct. 3 premiere of Roswell, WB’s teen-alien series, clearly illustrated what its producers recently revealed: that the show is taking a new direction — away from the sweet human/alien romances and toward the fight against the home-planet aliens out to destroy them. And I don’t like it.
On the premiere episode, Maria (Majandra Delfino) ordered a pining Max (Jason Behr) to get over Liz (Shiri Appleby), especially since his girlfriend had been holed up in Florida for the past three months. Max later assured Liz that he had no feelings for Tess (Emilie de Ravin), but she stated she wanted a fresh start and insisted that their relationship couldn’t return to its former harmonious state. Then Michael (Brendan Fehr) brutally informed Maria that there was no room for her in his new soldiering mission, and Isabel (Katherine Heigl) told Alex (Colin Hanks), “I can’t think about being with a guy — any guy — right now.”
