Season 2 of the cult science-fiction series Roswell opens on a promisingly positive note, with the rescue of alien teen Michael (Brendan Fehr) by Max (Jason Behr) and his pals, but as soon as things settled down, new challenges threaten their exist

Season 2 of the cult science-fiction series Roswell opens on a promisingly positive note, with the rescue of alien teen Michael (Brendan Fehr) by Max (Jason Behr) and his pals, but as soon as things settled down, new challenges threaten their existence. That was par for the course on this imaginative program, which hit its stride in its sophomore year (2000-2001) with a tighter blend of thoughtful youth drama and otherworldly action. The season's chief threats to aliens Max, Michael, Isabel (Katherine Heigl of Grey's Anatomy), and newcomer Tess (Emilie De Ravin of Lost), and Earthlings Liz (Shiri Appleby), Maria (Majandra Delfino), and Alex (Colin Hanks) are Vanessa Whitaker (Gretchen Egolf), a congresswoman with a very sinister secret agenda, and Brody Davis (Desmond Askew), the new curator of Roswell's UFO Museum, who harbors an equally unpleasant plan for the friends. The struggle between human and alien forces, both good and evil, to uncover the truth about Max and his companions leads to a pair of shocking events--a death among the group, and in the season finale, Max, Michael, and Isabel's possible return to their home planet. Other highlights from season 2 include the imaginative period piece "Summer of '47," with the series regulars assuming the roles of townspeople and government officials at the time of the original alleged UFO crash; the two-parter "Meet the Dupes" and "Max in the City," which poses the alien quartet against their physically identical doubles (with extremely different personalities); and "A Roswell Christmas Carol," which offers an unsentimental retake on the Dickens story.

As with the first-season set, supplemental features are surprisingly abundant for a relatively minor show; commentary is included on three of the 21 episodes (two by executive producer Ron Moore), while the featurette "Here with Me" has the writers, producers, and cast offering their opinions on the season. There's also another installment of the "Shiri and Majandra Show," with more lighthearted reminiscences from the actresses, as well as two additional featurettes on the program's score and the process of transforming a storyboarded scene into filmed action. A five-minute montage of clips set to music called "A Little Something Extra for the Fans" is the lightest of all the extras (and fans should note that many of the music cues featured in the original broadcasts have been replaced in this set), but Roswell aficionados will undoubtedly be happy with everything they get. --Paul Gaita

Only Roswell Fanatics new and old may be able to understand my post...I have never been a "Fanatic" of ANY show and could never really understand why people could get so worked up about fictional shows...until Roswell...I am 25yrs old and have lived a pretty safe & boring life (my bar & clubbing days don't seem that interesting anymore). When the first episode aired, I watched it and was instantly hooked!!! You get so immersed in this show while watching it that everything else fades away until the hour is over. I actually felt like going to visit New Mexico, see what it is like there. In a stupid way, I wanted to visit the "crashdown" café and "see" Maria, Liz, Michael, Max, etc. I wanted to research on the theory behind the real Roswell story. I wanted to know EVERYTHING Roswellian. I finally began to see that there is a bigger and more incredible world out there. It made me a believer that there are thing in this universe that doesn't have an explanation to it and it's ok. This show (can you believe it) made me feel like I have not lived life yet and that there is so much more to live and see.

The sweet innocent (not cheesy at all!) soul mate love of Max & Liz is incredible. Max is calm, silent, and compassionate but can really be strong when he need to...Liz is smart, sweet, interesting and loyal. I can so relate to the character of Liz. I can't put it into words; you have to see to understand. I wonder if I will be able to ever find a love like that?

Although I am a HUGE Max & Liz fan, there is actually a couple that on that show that made my heart beat (just a little bit) more for them...and that is Michael & Maria. Michael is dark, brooding and complicated (love that in a man lol), Maria (Liz's best friend) is the opposite...

This TV series is anything but normal, but what's so great about normal anyway? As any true Roswellian fan would respond, "Absolutely nothing!". "Roswell" was the first TV show I've ever know that had this amazing balance of sci-fi action and drama (especially in the first two seasons). Why? Because the actors pulled it off! The talented cast portrayed sincere emotional performances within a web of confusing, far-reached circumstances that made their stories and romances so real. This show does not only deal with the every day dilemmas of love-angst teens, but issues surrounding the aliens: Max, Isabelle, Tess and Michael and their search for their "real home". What these aliens discover is that home is not necessarily where you are from, or what one thinks is best for you, home is where you make it. Season 2, explores this journey with the aliens and the humans, where relationships are tested, friendships and trusts are destroyed, but most importantly, where they discover not just where they belong but with who they belong. Season 2 is an amazing follow-up to the spectacular Season 1. It will have you thinking, turning in one direction than the next, it will have you feeling hurt, sorrow, anger and redemption. I won't say more because I don't want to give to much away (like some have done in previous reviews)but know that you will enjoy every look, every discovery snd every adventure this story takes you. For those of you who have already seen Season 1, I don't need to convince you, you're already hooked!

I never saw an episode of Roswell at all during it's WB or UPN tenures. At that time, I was working a job that usually occupied my nights, so unless it was Buffy, Ally McBeal or Friends (or something like South Park or Sex And The City that was on cable and repeated during post-prime time hours), chances are I didn't watch it if it aired between 1998-2002.

About a year ago, I was bored and found my roommate watching a marathon Roswell on Sci-Fi, he knew the show from it's WB days, he talked me into watching an episode with him... and as he got ready for work, I found myself watching the entire 5 hour block of episodes... and then I found out season one was shortly coming to DVD. I kept taping the Sci-Fi daily marathons and bought season 1 asap, and I was able to finish the entire season in barely over a week. I've seen all 61 episodes and without hesitation would say that after Buffy (my all time favorite series), Roswell is definately the second best show WB has ever aired.

Unlike most high school dramas, this show really had great characters, and the series was all about the ensemble. Even though Max and Liz were the central couple of the series, you found yourself just as fascinated with Michael, Maria, Alex, Isabel, Kyle and Sheriff Valenti. I was never crazy about the character Tess, and unfortunately season 2 has way too much of her. Season 2 is probably my least favorite of the 3 seasons because she got on my last nerve. My favorite character is Maria.

I love the characters, love the atmosphere. I have never been to New Mexico, but from watching Roswell, I feel like I know what it must be like (even tho I know it was filmed in California).

Definately a must-buy DVD come October 5.

Thank you Jason Katims for turning a small book franchise into a wonderful series, and thank you Fox for preserving this series on DVD.
