I won't even try to persuade people to purchase this dvd set because I personally believe that if you watch the first episode of the show (try Sci-Fi channel) you'll most likely either become a life-long "Roswellian" or pass it off as boring television.
In my opinion, Season 1 is the "premier" season in Roswell's three year run on television. The sci-fi audience that is enamored with Buffy The Vampire Slayer & Angel (both decent shows) should look more to Season 2 & Season 3 when they are released. Season 1 has often been characterized as "slow and boring" by this particular segment of the Roswellian population.
Be aware that there are some dramatic music changes that were made to make the dvd affordable. And yes (as a previous reviewer mentioned), it does have a negative impact on a couple of very important scenes. It was a tough compromise that will probably anger quite a few fans.
BUT, it is still Roswell and to give it a one star rating merely for that is just petty.
5 STARS (even with serious music tampering done) - Watch & understand why this show has a fanatical fan base that spans across age, sex, race, and class.

My name is Chris, and I am currently serving the Marine Corps in Al Fallujah, Iraq. I work the front-lines of 2nd Battalion 1st Marines. And here, life kinda sucks. But the one thing that I found peace and calm was watching whenever I could the incredible development of characters and events in the first season of Rosewell. Immediately I fell in love with Liz,Max and the rest of the gang. No other television series has portrayed the realities of what it like to be a teenager with secrets and those who share the same. Roswell captures the heart of being in love, the struggles a couple must face; heartbreak, betrayal, hope, and breath-taking 180's that leave you winded. yet wanting more. I strongly recommend anyone to become a Roswell fan. Because you will definitely see yourself in one or more of the characters, and then you will relate in ways you would never have imagined.

So I was over at a friend's house last night, telling her all about the brilliant and woefully underrated show "Roswell", when she suddenly says: "Roswell. I think that's out on DVD." I nearly fell off my chair, recovering long enough to check. Yes, it's true! One of the all-time greatest teen shows, and a magnificent sci-fi show to boot, is finally out on DVD.

Based on the terrific book series, "Roswell" chronicles the lives of a group of teens living in Roswell, New Mexico. Some of them are human, some of them are not. You see, it turns out that a spaceship really did crash-land in the New Mexico desert in the 1950's, and after a period of incubation, three kids popped out: Beautiful, head-strong Isabel (Katherine Heigel), proud, rebellious Michael (Brendan Fehr) and quiet, gentle Max (hopelessly gorgeous Jason Behr). One day Max saves the life of Liz Parker (the radiant Shiri Appleby), setting off a chain of events that will change their lives forever. Rounding out the cast is Liz's best friend Maria (Majandra Delfino, providing much of the comedy relief) and geeky Alex (Colin Hanks, son of Tom Hanks). There is also a semi-evil Sheriff and assorted parents and schoolmates.

The strength of this show is two-fold: Excellent, heart-felt writing and spectacular chemistry between the leads. The first season is easily the best; later seasons became painful to watch as the characters we had come to care about were tossed about in all the wrong ways. The show always stayed compulsively watchable, though, never losing its poignancy. The first season's the only one I'll be buying, but if you're a newcomer you'll probably be totally hooked and want to see the whole thing through to its satisfying conclusion.

This is a phenomenal show and the first season was incredible. I was hooked after the very first episode and I'm not a huge Sci-Fi fan. The characters are so great and the story was captivating! I just had to watch every single episode! This series died way too young. I am so happy the episodes are available on DVD.

To think it all started with Jason Behr's guest appearances on Dawson's Creek. Viewers of "The Creek" will remember him as Chris, the "rico suave" who acted in one of Dawson's movies. Apparently, "the powers that be" saw potential in Behr, thus Jason Katim's sci-fi teen drama was developed and formed around him. More recently, The Creek did the same thing for Chad Michael Murray, currently of One Tree Hill.

Immediately engaging and involving, Roswell raised the bar somewhat for teen dramas with an incredible cast, original storylines, and a near-perfect balance of sci-fi elements and teen angst. There's no wonder why so many have so much to express about the phenomenon that is Roswell. Life was good for Roswell until it started losing support during it's 2nd season due to what TV Guide Couch Critic Matt Roush called "convoluted storylines." "Too much stuff going on," he said. Yeah, right. In any case, WB dropped Roswell (along with Buffy) from it's schedule. Luckily, UPN picked up Roswell (along with Buffy) for the show's 3rd and final season. For its worth, Roswell went out fighting like a champ (along with my other canceled favorite of that year, ABC's Once & Again) with one of television's better series finales. Treat yourself to arguably the most anticipated DVD you'll buy this year.

Continue your collection....
