Roswell, New Mexico: Season 1 (2019)


Critic Consensus: Roswell, New Mexico admirably adds modern political context to its premise, but this reboot hews too closely to its predecessor to transcend the pitfalls of a redundant retread.

If you don't like CW shows but you like The X-Files and other alien shows and you're wondering if this will be up your alley, it probably won't be. But if you like a good CW sci-fi drama, this is a good bet to add to your list.

Sometimes the aliens-as-immigrants rhetoric is a little too on the nose...but as remakes go, this iteration of Roswell seems like it will appeal to the current CW audience.

Aliens of all kinds in worthy update of '90s cult fave.

the chemistry between the actors on Roswell, New Mexico is intense and exceptional, and it elevates the pilot from great to excellent.

This grown-up Roswell has its moments but mostly reminds us how hard it is to recapture the magic of an original.

Roswell, New Mexico has a few surprising twists on the formula, yet never completely finds a worthwhile voice of its own. It's not bad. It's flimsy and resistant to its own strengths.

"She can never know what happened to Rosa," Max says ominously at the end of the first episode, but the new Roswell is so boring I doubt you'll care.

Besides just the general problem with this kind of love story, Max's obsession with Liz just isn't as cute at nearly-30-years-old as it is in teen form.

The strong choices generally work for me, and I can see a certain fear over their "controversial" nature, but I worry that Roswell is still too close to the original.

Jan 16, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Until we see further episodes that stray from the original, or maybe hue closer to the Roswell High book series, it's really hard to figure out if this is worthwhile or not.
