Roswell, New Mexico: Season 1 Reviews

January 17, 2019
This grown-up Roswell has its moments but mostly reminds us how hard it is to recapture the magic of an original.

"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.

Even for the now-twentysomethings Max Evans (Nathan Parsons, an Originals alum) and Liz Ortecho (Jeanine Mason, the season-five winner of So You Think You Can Dance), that's a tall order, one that the series as a whole struggles to deliver.

I don't get nor understand the reason to do this weird reboot, remake, reimagine thing. None of the changes are for the better. It's a white glove slap in the face to fans of the 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.
January 14, 2019
The ham-handedness of Roswell, New Mexico, cannot be overstated.

What mostly worked for Charmed is less successful with Roswell, which lacks the former's sharp writing and charismatic characters.
January 9, 2019
Roswell, New Mexico's attempt to say something about the world we live in today is commendable. However, the reboot failed to live up to its immigration-centered twist by adding nothing new or interesting to the conversation.
