    Default Roswell

    Does the new show have anything to do with the old One? Is it a remake?

    It's a remake, other than some key moments and similar character names it is a completely different story and the characters are written nothing like the original.

    As someone who was a huge fan of the original I must say I'm enjoying the show. I do miss William Sadler as Jim Balenti though

    I think that it's Valenti actually, still a bit scary that the original was like 20 years ago...

    It is Valenti. Valenti was close. Remember the casino epic? Valenti evil comical face at the end was a classic.

    Technically, it's based on the original book series not the original series. That way Roswell, New Mexico don't have to pay royalties to the producers of Roswell, the previous series.

    I'm left to wonder how close the two shows will end up being in the end, storyline wise, like in the new one will the first season end with Max being captured by the alien hunters and such...

    Yeah my fat thumbs made that mistake, not me. Either that or auto correct changed it to Balenti and I didn't notice.

    Curse you auto correct Anyway though I still wish that the old version had gotten a better ending and/or lasted longer, still has enough material from it to do a reboot that would be different enough from the one that we have now(maybe with the kids of the original group returning to Roswell) though I highly doubt that they'd do it while this one is airing...

    Also wonder who after Liz will be the first one to find out about the aliens in the new version, Noah, Maria, Kyle...

    Seems that Kyle already knows so maybe Noah will be next, also beginning to think that Liz and Max won't become a couple till next season the rate they're going, still think that Max's tattoo is like the royal seal or something that only the king would have or something along those lines.....and even if Michael were to fully repair the ship they'd have no knowledge of where to go after leaving Earth...Max and Isabel were lucky to have a hot mom

    Glad to see that I was wrong about Max and Liz...Noah found Isabel in the pod chamber...Michael seems to be bi instead of gay as he and Maria ...

    Very good episode last night. I like this show so far. Hope it keeps the quality up because some early episodes were too repetitive, imo. At least more stuff is happening, and when it does, it's pretty good. Hopefully it gets renewed..

    And unless I was mistaken the episode was directed by Shiri Appleby, who played Liz in the old series...just a cool note...still wondering how close the two shows will end up being, whether like Max's real name is still Zan and he's still the king and all of that or not...

    Well in the old show Max Michael and Isabel were the tops back on their home planet Antar, Max was King, Michael was his second in command, and Isabel Max's older sister. Max's real name was Zan and Isabel's was either Lilandra or Vilandra. Anyway a guy named Kivar started a revolt against Zan, then after some time he said that he wanted peace, all while getting Isabel to fall in love with him. Anyway Kivar convinced Isabel to help him get into the capital to talk peace, she helped him and then Kivar betrayed Isabel and it was a bloodbath to where many died, including Isabel and Max and Michael. Then Zan's loyal supporters mixed their alien dna with human dna of those that had been abducted and studied years earlier and sent the trio to Earth. After like 40 years or so the trio came out of the pods and got found by the Evans', at least Max and Isabel were leaving Michael to be adopted by that trailer park jerk. Tess was Max's queen back on Antar but was raised by Nasedo as she didn't come out of her pod at the same time as the others...and until she met Max on Earth he didn't even remember her...back on Antar and the other planets of that system they'd had like 50 years of civil war since Kivar killed Max and the others...

    Max has the royal seal of Antar imprinted on his brain, it's a particular arrangement of five planets that make up their home system and gives him the healing powers...and Tess called her and Max's son Zan...which after Tess died Max put Zan up for adoption on Earth since it'd be safer for him as Zan was genetically fully human...Tess killed Alex after using her powers to mess with his mind and get him to decode a book that gave them all the answers about why the aliens were on Earth and how to get back to Antar...

    At the end of the series, Max/Liz, Michael/Maria, Isabel and Kyle all went on the run from an alien hunting government group. Before they left Roswell Max proposed to Liz with a diamond that he made from a piece of charcoal from her grill, saying that it was a trick he learned from Superman...after they all left town the last bit that we saw of the group was Max and Liz getting married at a roadside chapel and then driving off down the road in the group's van...

    I forgot to add that in the end Liz developed some powers of her own thanks to Max bringing her back from the dead, Kyle went with the group greatly because Max pretty much did the same thing with him so he thought that when his powers started to manifest that at least he'd be with "his own kind", to which Michael wasn't to happy about Kyle considering himself to be just like them, well sarcastically anyway...they all left Roswell right in the middle of their high school graduation ceremony, and Isabel broke up with her husband before leaving town as well, with only Max and Isabel's parents knowing that they were aliens, along with Valenti of course, then Liz sent her journal back to Roswell after she got married and her dad read it, and in the journal she told him to let her mom and Maria's mom read the journal and then burn it all...
