It also helped that the cast ensemble gave committed performances. The CW is more obsessed with fashion and glamorizing things than actually appreciating character strengths. The Vampire Diaries kinda proved that
That's my issue with alot of CW shows now (with the exception of The 100, and yes I'm biased ) that I feel like they don't truly delve into character development and are just focused on everything being so stylized. See Riverdale as an example.

The fashion on Buffy and Roswell just complimented the characters and their personalities - they didn't stomp into a room wearing a $900 outfit while the camera focused on them in slow-mo. I don't know.

I REALLY hope there's no Michael & Maria and if there is, please let them be nothing like ours...

I agree! I loved how we got to see real character development in shows like Buffy and Roswell and how there was a reason they were wearing a certain color or outfit. Maybe the outfit or certain color ft their mood or was to show case a turing point for the character.

I agree everything is so stylized now a days. You want to dress like the character. Or they are more like models on a runway with no depth or emotion they just look good.

I think that is why people like the 100 it is different.

If a show has a great story then I will stay with it.

Vampire Diaries got so ridiculous after a while. They lost their core storyline and everything was a mess with the ship of the week. I stopped watching after season 4. 1-3 I feel were great. Then Season 4 went downhill.

I eventually watched the series final just to see what it was like.I remember thinking oh know what did they do. It was a mess so many storylines that didn't make sense and character were thrown in for no reason what so ever!

I know Majandra said there is no Maria and Micheal in the remake so that is good news!

You can't redo the candies they were magical! I want B&T so bad!

!
Is it because of product placement? I mean, do the studios or channels have deals with some specific clothes brands/shops?

They do sometimes, but I think it's just...crappy writing and I don't even know what. Crappy everything? Sometimes I'm watching shows and there are scenes that are placed in them that serve no purpose at all, it's just to show people looking hot or something. I'm like ok, thanks?

I know that in some shows, you can see cars of certain brands so you know that it's product placement. For clothes, I don't know. I think that when dressing actresses and actors, this should respect the characters. I mean, I understand that in a show like Beverly Hills, the actors can wear expensive clothes but in shows where the characters are poor or are more normal, it's not necessary and even ridiculous.

I always found it funny how you never see TV characters wear the same outfit twice...imagine having that kind of wardrobe!

Yes there was some product placement back in the day or name dropping of brands. I remember Buffy didn't have that much product placement. Neither did Roswell.


I agree it is like the characters in shows now a days hit the lottery and have an unlimited access to designer brands and fashion.

I miss the old days when characters could wear the same or similar outfit twice and it was no big deal.

I agree bad writing and plot shorelines are in fashion it's all about modeling the fashion.

Tv shows are supposed to be about fictional characters, sure, no problem. But it's hard to ignore some things, like expensive clothing for poor characters. It reminds me of an episode of Golden Girls. Blanche's niece was dating a cop who was in love with Miami Vice and who loved to dress like his heroes and live like them. He complained how hard it was to maintain such a wardrobe on a cop salary .

See, even back then, there were issues with how characters were dressed.

I love the Golden Girls! So true see even Miami Vice had it's Vices with how you could dress like them.

So I hear that Julie Plec has signed on as Director to the NEW show accoring to IMDB.

Roswell (TV Movie) - IMDb

Good luck with that! That woman destroys story lines and does not respect cannon what so ever! Vampire Diaries is proof of that. No respect for the books that the show was based on. She just wrote her ships of the week. I swear she does this based on how hot the guys in the cast are. Mythology was not respect under her eyes. It was bad fan fiction come to light.

I have seen her speak at a few Comic Cons when she was on for the Vampire Diaries and she was clueless to fan bases and story lines. She threw great story lines out the window and created her own with no connection to past seasons or to the premies of the show. All she did was fan girl over the hot guys on the show. She does not help shows she destroys them.

They must of gotten her because Carina Adly MacKenzie wrote for the Originals which Julie was the writer and producer on.

Oh now I hope this show really fails! It's now even more of a disaster in the making! David Nutter was a master of directing the Roswell pilot! It was stunning and the emotions he made you feel pure magic!

True Roswell fans know the Truth! Real True Roswell all the way!
