Roswell.. Then & Now

Hi all. New here.
I was once a rabid Roswell fan some 19 yrs ago. I lived for it every week. Over the years, it became a distant fond memory.

With the initial whispers about a reboot, it made me start to remember the live I had for it.

So just recently, I sat down an did a marathon to revisit old friends.

I view it a little differently now then I did back then.

Max Evans: then- um. Yes please?! Where can I get me one of him? Broke my heart with the Tessa thing. Never quite forgave him.

now- um. Yes please?!! Not much character development, but who cares? Where can I get me one of him? I viewed the Tessa thing a little differently this time around. Not angry, just hurtful. He broke me, when he was in the Jeep with Liz right before the 4 of them were leaving- when he broke down & cried. I cried & forgave him. It was always Liz.

Liz Parker: then- sweet innocent school girl swept up in a literal fairy tale & danger.

now- my view of her hasn't changed much other then I believe her character was not a normal high school girl. Fairy tales do exist, and she was willing to risk it all to be with him.

Maria DeLuca: then- a little annoying. Typical high school girl. Like an annoying little sister.

now- great character development. She really did turn into a solid character. She carried her part so well. I like her a lot more this time around.

Michael Guerin: then- bad boy with bad hair. Caused 1/2 the trouble they got in to, mostly on purpose.

now- sensitive guy, with a bad boy persona. Was never intentionally seeking trouble, just answers. Truly cared about those close to him.

Isabel Evans: then- typical Prom Queen type. Snobby & whiny.

now- nice character development. She wasn't who I thought she was the first time around. Shes actually sweet, just very guarded.

Alex Whitman: then- sweet, dorky sidekick. A great friend to have.

now- sweet, dorky guy with a heart of gold. The guy every girl ignored in high school, but the guy every woman would fall all over later in life- had he made it past 17.

Kyle Valenti: then- nosy & typical jock.

now- sweet, caring guy who happened to be a jock. Loved his character development through the seasons. When he realized what part he played in Alex's death... I was crushed for him.

Sheriff Valenti: then- determined authority figure that made me nervous throughout the series.

now- a guy doing his job, and trying to understand that what he thought he knew his whole life was.. wrong and being ok with it. Stepped up & made a great surrogate for some kids that he didn't have to help.

Tessa Harding: then- Hated. Her. So. Much. Just a conniving obstacle. She murdered Alex. She seduced Max. Almost got them all killed.

now- some character development. I will never forgive her for murdering Alex. Her seduction of Max was a little less maddening, only because i realuzed he never really even cared for her.Still don't like her, but not like I did years ago.

I still felt all the feels watching it this 2nd time. The joy. The sadness.
I still dislike The End of the World episode. I find it very unnecessary. And a bit upsetting.
Cry Your Name. Cried again this episode. So moving. I miss Alex.

I am still irritated on how shortened we got with M & L wedding... when we got the extended version of Max & Tess's sex scene.

I still very much love this show. I appreciate in a different level now.

I'm not sure about this reboot though?

Love your post. It is amazing watching Roswell year later how you can look at the characters from a different point of view and how the show still touchs you!

Roswell was magical!
