Star-Crossed: Season 1 (2014)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: In spite of its dreary tone and predictable plot, Star-Crossed entertains with typical CW fare: good-looking actors, romance, and sci-fi drama.

Tv Season Info

The first season of this sci-fi drama follows a group of teenage aliens from the planet Atria as they are integrated into a suburban high school on Earth, despite the protests of some members of each species. After meeting 10 years earlier, Atrian boy Roman (Matt Lanter) and human teenager Emery (Aimee Teegarden) rekindle their friendship and face prejudices from both sides. Their budding relationship is further complicated by the mysterious past of Roman's family, Emery's connection with fellow student Grayson (Grey Damon), and the objections of their friends and families. Elsewhere, Atrian Drake (Greg Finley) and queen-bee human Taylor (Natalie Hall) find themselves drawn to each other and struggle to maintain a forbidden relationship.

Star-Crossed is without question a cool concept. There's romance, testosterone overload (and whatever the Atrian hormone is), conflict, betrayal, family melodrama, red-plastic-cup parties, a little sci-fi.

Plenty of potential, if Star-Crossed stops talking down to us.

It's too soon the count the show out. The principals are attractive, and the first two episodes set up some plot threads that could twist together well.

Top Critic

The guy [Vartan] is so laughably over-the-top oily that conservative TV and radio hosts will be entitled to whatever field days they might be planning.

Top Critic

It shows extra ambition by putting its outsiders so constantly and viscerally close to those who suspect and fear them. Add forbidden love, which can never escape the shadow of potential doom, and [it] could become both provocative and entertaining.

The tone is mostly dreary and the plot with few exceptions goes precisely where you expect.

Feb 18, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A lukewarm love story that never lives up to its potential.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

With aliens in the mix, tension and romance on the rise and one particularly interesting twist, there's potential for Star-Crossed to be as exciting and unpredictable as it'll likely be dramatic.

Feb 16, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Decent teen drama explores issue of prejudice with care.

Feb 11, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Everything else about this show is instantly recognizable to any CW veteran. However, I did enjoy a crack about Glee even if only reminded me how much more humor is needed.
