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.

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.
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.
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.
