Roswell came onto the scene in 1999, following Dawson's Creek in the WB lineup. The first two seasons were broadcast on the WB before the rights to the third season were picked up by UPN, which aired the final 18 episodes in the 2001-2002 television season.

I never watched Roswell while it was on television, but after reading a good review about the first season, purchased the DVD set and was hooked on the story. Both the first and second season sets were quite good and I was certainly looking forward to the third and final season when it hit DVD stands earlier this year.

Roswell follows the lives of alien-human hybrids Max Evans (Jason Behr), Isabel Evans (Katherine Heigl) and Michael Guerin (Brendan Fehr) as they try to live their lives as normally as possible in the alien-crazed town of Roswell, New Mexico. Their secrets were safe until Max used his powers to save Liz Parker (Shiri Appleby), bringing Liz and her friend Maria (Majandra Delfino) into the secret.

Over the course of the first two seasons, Sheriff Jim Valenti (William Sadler), his son Kyle (Nick Wechsler) and Alex Whitman (Colin Hanks) found out about the aliens secret. Alex was killed at the end of season two by yet another alien-hybrid, Tess Harding (Emilie deRavin) who was carrying Max's son, the heir to the throne on their home planet. All of these aspects play a part in the start of the third season.

Liz and Max, torn apart in season two by Max's relationship with Tess, are back together and in the very first episode, they are trying desperately to find a way to find Max's son. Throughout the season, that is one of the big story lines, as Max searches for the son that is rightfully his.

We live in a pretty cool time. We can "own" films and TV shows, watch them over and over at home with big screen sets and kickin' sound and don't need to be rich to do it.

So when Roswell Season One was first released, I was pretty happy. As season Three finds its way to our hands, the cycle is complete.

I had a chance to meet and interview Brendan Fehr and he was a little surprised to find a middle-aged guy (me) who liked the series so much. I am and remain an unabashed groupie for Roswell.

I've always liked different stuff - Twin Peaks remains my favorite TV series - but I came to the first Roswell episode not expecting much. I was quickly hooked and I'm a bit puzzled by anyone who might wonder why. It might not be for every taste but it's hard to deny the quality of the work.

The series was impeccably shot. Sound, editing, music - it was all top notch. The first season's claustrophobic setting (the small city of Roswell) lent itself well to the story and allowed the characters to establish bonds before moving the series into a wider arena.

At the core of the series was (IMO) one of the all-time great love stories: Max and Liz. The chemistry was simply breathtaking and I can't recall a show with two more attractive young leads who seemed truly be attracted to each other. And when the bond starts by Max saving Liz's life, it's strong from the start. More than once I was swept with emotion, watching the scenes play out. Yes, there are some lame parts of all three seasons. Yes, there needs to be a suspension of disbelief in order to buy into the show. And as far as going on to more seasons, I think the show was working within a built-in box that had nowhere to really go.

Having enjoyed the first two seasons of Roswell, I wanted to enjoy the third season. I did up to a point, but objectively the series fell apart in the third year, and was brought to a merciful end after 18 episodes. This makes the season three set a poor value in both quantity and quality -- four shows short of a normal season of television, and deficient in imagination, continuity, and overall execution.

I believe the young actors in this series improved throughout their tenure in Roswell, but this is against the backdrop of declining script quality. The writing ignored logic at so many points, that anyone not in the grip of blind fannish adoration for this series would be quite annoyed.

To top it off, Jonathan Frakes produces some of the most inane audio commentary for a TV episode I've ever heard. Announcing the characters and actors as they come on the screen -- like we don't know who the stars of the show are???

What led to the demise of Roswell is probably the lack of a good story arc for the third season. For the first half of the year, Max was looking for his son, taken from him in season two by the duplicitous Tess (played by Emilie de Ravin, currently appearing in LOST on ABC). Then, Max loses interest in that quest. Isabel inexplicably abandons all caution and common sense, marrying a man she has known but a few short months. Inevitably this leads to conflict, since she decides to deceive him about her alien heritage. When her ex-lover from the home planet shows up on their honeymoon, more silliness ensues. Michael and Maria are together, then they split up, then they get back together, kind of, and finally Maria decides to commit. Colin Hanks comes back as a ghost (sort of) in one episode -- which seemed like an act of desperation to me.
